Run the BIOS SETUP some old branded computers

14.11.2009 by: lz3ai

Increasingly sourcing from here and there with second hand computers, which God knows how to switch on the Setup-and BIOS-and where, if a page is read this.

There are other ways, which include for example removing cable of FDD before turning on the computer (eg… it is with another device recorded in the BIOS – say the keyboard, but then very quickly run into another problem ;-)) which will tell you – who does not love the thrill … and it’s nice to have a moment of surprise, though …).

It gets more specific ways – for example throwing a mother-in (in-law) as soon as you are angry, but are not quite reliable and lead to losses or barely tolerable once windfall.
