    Hello

    I'm having a problem with my PC. Upon restart it hangs up on the :"To enter bios press del" screen. I've tried restarting in safe mode. No go. The keyboard seems to be powered i.e. num lock key is lit but no connection so I can't enter the bios if I want to. If I insert a Window 7 install Disc and reboot it the disc spins up for a minute or two and then windows starts. I am using a legit install so no problems there if I need to re install though I'm not sure if it will as the install disc stops after windows starts. Any suggestions? TIA

    So Windows is starting ? But you say it hangs on the "To enter bios press del" screen.

    To get the Windows Install DVD to start, you need to get into bios and change boot order so that the DVD drive boots first.

    That's just it, the keyboard wont let me enter the bios. It's powered as I can see the numlock light on but the PC won't accept any input from the keyboard.

    Borrow a keyboard from a friend. Maybe your keyboard is dead.
