As with previous Dell Precision workstation platforms, your computer
includes a one-time boot menu. This feature offers a quick and convenient method
with which to bypass the System Setup-defined boot device order and boot directly
to a specific device (e.g., floppy, CD-ROM, or hard drive).
The boot menu enhancements introduced on previous platforms are as follows:
Easier accessAlthough the <Ctrl><Alt><F8>
keystroke still exists and can be used to call up the menu, you can also simply
press <F12> during system boot to access the menu.
Diagnostics optionsThe boot menu includes two diagnostic options,
IDE Drive Diagnostics (90/90 Hard Drive Diagnostics) and Boot to the Utility
Press <F2> to enter System Setup and change the user-definable settings.
If you have trouble entering System Setup using this key, press <F2> when
the keyboard lights first flash.
Follow the on-screen
instructions to view and/or change any settings. On each screen, the system setup
options are listed at the left. To the right of each option is the setting or
value for that option. You can change settings that appear as white type on the
screen. Options or values that you cannot change (because they are determined
by your Tablet-PC) appear less bright.
The upper-right corner of the screen
displays help information for the currently highlighted option. The lower-right
corner displays information about the computer. System setup key functions are
listed across the bottom of the screen.
The system setup screens display
the current setup information and settings for your computer, such as:
