Dell Dell dimension e521 desktop compute...

Specs: Windows Vista, AMD/64 X2 dual core/2gbs.
At boot-up I see an error code saying"hard drive self monitoring system has reported that a parameter has exceeded it's normal operating range."
Dell recommends that you back up your data regularly.

then says press f1 to continue,f2 to enter setup.

I know I can fix this in dos mode,but I cant remember what key to push at start up,and windows will not start,gets caught in a loop trying to boot over and over again.
Ways up with that?

The key is probably F8 or F12
