"How can I get the Bios screen at boot up"

All you have to do is watch the screen for the message "press F10 to enter setup"

Okay I got the System Bios and Setup Utility screen...Now what has been happening is the few days when I boot my system I have a pop up and it reads:

Attempting Boot from USB Device Non-system disk or disk error replace and press any key when ready.

And Tech Support Guy Forums it was suggested that I:

What is happening, is that windows is trying to boot from whatever removable device you have plugged in.
To prevent windows from doing that , you need to go to your bios and make sure that "Removable Media" is at the bottom of the boot list.
I hope that solves your problems.

And I was not sure how to do what he had suggested.

When you first start up your computer it will tell you "Press (something) to enter BIOS". (I think it is F2)
Once you are in the bios, you need to find the boot screen.
Then, you need to move the "Removable Disks" to the bottom.
To do that, use your arrow keys to highlight it, and then press the "minus" key to move it all the way to the bottom.
Now just exit and restart, and that should do it.

And I am not sure what to do.

Just read the screen prompts.

Did you just start experiencing this boot issue? If so, just remove the USB flash drive, external drive, or card in the card reader.

Not a good idea to boot with those items in place anyway because it MAY change drive letters on other drives.

well...when you are in the bios, use right arrow to navigate to the boot screen...find the removable disk option , press enter on it, drag it to the bottom, then press enter again. Also make sure that the hard drive is to the top of the list. If not, drag it in the same way as i said a bit upper................press F10 to save settings...press "y" or enter (i don`t know), to confirm...

You should have your CD drive first, then hard drive, then anything else you may boot from or set to nothing.

Sometimes you may need to boot to a CD. All that is does is slow the boot done for about 5 seconds while the BIOS looks for a CD id the optical drive.
