Happy New year to all I encountered something special the other day, when trying to clean a friend of mine's machine which wouldn't start anymore. I was very confident when I arived with my set of cdroms equipped with various cleaning tools and so on, for instance BartPe and UBCD4W. To my great (bad) surprise, the pc could only boot 1from floppy (thank God there was one) and 2HDD (which was bugged). I said to myself no problem, let's get into the Bios/CMOS setup and change the startup sequence and add cd-drive and dvd-drive to the sequence. I never could get into the setup. I tried F1, F2, F3, F5, F8, del, esc, you name it. I thought there was maybe a problem of some sort with the keyboard, so I changed and replaced it. To no avail. Any idea what to do in such a rare case?
