BIOS Setup Utility

The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) contains important information used to configure the hardware and system software settings. Your computer reads the BIOS when it first starts up, before it loads the operating system.

Your computer's BIOS includes a built-insetup utility called Phoenix Software System Configuration Utility (SCU). It can be started shortly after you turn the computer on, by pressing the F2 key duringPower-OnSelf Test (POST).

The BIOS Setup Utility displays summary information on your computer, its devices, processor and memory.

Your computer is already configured for optimal performance, and so you should not need to run this utility. However, you may need to change the BIOS settings if you encounter configuration problems in the future. Refer to “Frequently asked questions” on page 61 if a problem arises.
