    Hi,
    When I turn on my computer, at the BIOS screen where the computer tests the memory and stuff, sometimes it goes into the BIOS setup by itself - and I didn't even touch the delete key! What could be the problem (sometimes the problem keeps me from logging into Windows!) ? Thanks.

    An incorrectly seated CPU, dodgy memory module or a host of other things that are basic to the system boot-up including not saving the BIOS settings to NVRAM. Or where what’s in one is not in the other and vice-versa.

    Maybe the keyboard isn't plugged in correctly? Just a though... :)

    My computer was working fine before this occured. It just happened out of the blue.

    Keyboard huh? Which reminds me, I recently changed my keyboard's LEDs to bright blue ones. Could that be the problem? Thanks.

    Your delete key may stick a little. (Could be worn out from gaming).
