This rises many questions on my part.1. What version of windows are you currently running(98 I suppose)

again try Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

It's been a while since I've used anything other than XP, but I think to enter BIOS in Win 98+95 it's one of the F keys F7 or F8.

best of luck...

Enter BIOs? If its the BIOs I'm thinking of its Delete or F8 at startup? If you mean Task Manager its Control Alt Delete.

This forum is about "Computer Problems"there are many,but it's not a good topic title,agree ?

Get out your manual,you are useing the wrong key[s].
It's usually only 1.

I also do not understand the referance to bios with an alt cntrl del-however the error message is an indication that 1 you have a defective keyboard or 2 that the plug into the computer is dirty and or making poor contact. Try spraying the plug clean with wd-40 shake out the excess and blow dry-reinsert the plug and see if the error continues-if so borrow or buy another keyboard.

What do you want the BIOs for?

Secondly, if thats not working, have to tried Delete or F8? Does the Keyboard work?
