4.Press the up and down directional arrows to navigate between the different values and fields of each setting.

5.Press the key specified at the bottom of the screen to modify and make changes to any settings.

6.Navigate to the "Exit" setting tab once all changes are made. Select "Save Changes" to save the current changes you made. Select "Exit Without Saving Changes" if you don't want to make any changes to your current settings. Press "Enter." Your computer will reboot with the new settings.

Kalyan Kovi :

If any problem you can reply me

Customer :

Key:V9FT-728R-JP7T-892TEnter Onetime Password

Customer :

The F2 did not work either.

Customer :

Went strait to enter bios password screen

Kalyan Kovi :

just do the all steps

Kalyan Kovi :

then tell me what happens

Customer :

It will not go to a different screen. Goes strait to the black and blue screen to enter BIOS password.

Customer :

Right now I am at the blue and black screen that says enter Bios password.

Customer :

The AVIO screen and this screen are the only screens I can get to. The F2 and F3 keys do nothing.

Kalyan Kovi :

I've found a few that will ask for a password but as it turns out there is none. You just hit enter with it blank.

Kalyan Kovi :

to reset it is to clear it with the CLR_CMOS jumper/pins on the motherboard.

Kalyan Kovi :

Another way would be to reflash the bios
