Unable to access the bios on my K7sem Motherboard. Neither the DEL, F1 or F2 keys will allow access. I understand that there may be a jumper setting which needs to be changed?
I'm trying to set my bios to read my A drive and then my CD drive on bootup. At the moment I cannot re-install WIN XP nor run XP repair, because my computer bypasses both drives.

Assistance would be much appreciated.

There have been alot of issues with the K7sem mainboard and bios problems. I doubt there is a jumper to configure bios access. What you can do is force a bios error by powering down the system and unplug it, pop the small disk battery out of it's holder on the mainboard for 2 or 3 minutes reinstall the battery, plug it in and power it up.
Now your CMOS settings are all at default such as time and date and any cpu settings and a message should appear stating such and allow you to enter cmos with F1 or what ever is specified.
