I keep getting information which tells me to depress F1 or F10 or pause to determine information regarding my BIOS, etc. For some strange reason, no information ever appears on either of my computers when I do this. Any suggestions what I am doing wrong? i have yet to see any thing except my computer logo, window logo and then my desktop. Am I DUMMY or what???? LOL - just wondering if I will ever conquer it?

Depending on your bios, and/or computer, it can vary from F 1 , F 2, DEL, if you have a Compaq machine F 10........and there are others as well.

As Candy said, it is different for different machines. You can try hitting the escape key just as the computer logo pops up then hit the pause/break key to halt the boot so you can read the screen. Hitting the escape key again will resume booting. Once you find the correct key to enter setup or BIOS, hold it down right after you turn on the machine.

Good Luck
