    I want to see wut my BIOS is doing and see wuts going on
    in the background of my machine while its booting but instead
    I get the annoying Gateway logo, and then the Win XP Pro
    loading screen.

    The whole bootup process takes about 30 seconds and no
    matter what button I push (F1, F2, Esc, etc) I cant enter the
    BIOS setup. And Id still like to know how to get rid of the
    Win XP and Gateway screens and always see wuts running
    in the background.


    PS - comp info.......

    AMD Athlon 950mhz
    20 gig HDD
    16mb NVIDIA graphic card
    BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 0AAVWP05 (i just updated this off site needed for XP)
  2. reboot

    reboot Guest

    Hitting the ESC key should show you what's going on.
    Hitting DEL should get you into BIOS.
