  • pgjackson,

    To remove the Dell logo on bootup, enter the bios setup screen and choose 'disable quietboot' on the boot options menu. Press F10 then enter to save the settings.

  • How do you get to the bios set up screen. Is it possible to get rid of the hideous ME screen also?? :) >>>can't get the emoticon to turn into a smilie :(

  • denverdan,

    Restart your PC and watch carefully as it will tell you which key to press to enter 'setup'. It will be either the 'del' key or possibly F2. Tap this key until you see the bios screen, you will have to act quickly during a reboot.
