You can change settings in the BIOS, which is usually the very first screen displayed by your computer when you turn it on.

To enter your BIOS, most users here will press the DEL key.

Most users with Dell, Gateway, Sony & HP systems will press F2.

Compaq users will usually have to press F10.

IBM typically uses F1 or F2.
