Press f-1 To continue F2 to enter setup

Today, we are going to discuss on how to possibly get rid of the

Press F-1 To continue, F-2 to enter setup”  error message. IMG_0341 (2)

I was working on a Dell Dimension 9100,   I had just finished re-installing the Operating System Microsoft Windows XP, restarted the computer and then the error message appeared. I have seen this in the past and really wasn’t sure on how to get rid of it, one of the ways, is usually to

replace the CMOS Battery. Below is a link how to replace the Battery. This goes in-depth.

Replacing the CMOS Battery didn’t work this time, so I restarted the computer. Pressing F-2, I was able to boot into the Bios Menu.  After going through all the different sub-Menu’s, I came across “Post Behavior” My Bios is a Phoenix bios yours might be something else.

So, I came across four different things to try. They were:  Fast Boot, Num lock Key, Post Hotkey and Keyboard Error

Now, depending on the circumstance or system. this may or may not work.

 When I got to Keyboard Error.  I  set  it up as to not report keyboard errors.

Pressed enter, than saving upon exiting, which is  usually ESC(Escape Key,) F-10 to save settings.

Restarted the computer and the error message was gone. To be sure I restarted the computer, no error message was present.

I Hope this helps you out.

God Bless
