    I work with Windows 2003 Server. I did preventive maint. & opened up the cover & blew out with canned air. Now when it restarts it hangs with an error that the cover has been removed & after an F1 it continues. How do you get rid of that. Many years ago I had that with another OS & all I can remember is going into the boot setup and doing something but I can't remember what. Any help would be appreciated. THX

    It is not a Dell, it is a build from local PC guy. I tested going into bios on my own PC & found how to do it but when I restarted the Windows 2003 Server, F12 does not bring up the bios. Could you tell me how to do it? THX

    The key to enter the BIOS is not the same on all systems. You should briefly see what key to press as the system boots. Otherwise, you could post your motherboard and/or BIOS info, and someone here should be able to help you figure out what key to press.
