    Hi eveybody

    I have an old computer that wasn't booting anymore, telling me
    "checking nvram..update failed". I wasn't able to press the delete
    key, wasn't responding. I tough I had to put that computer in the
    garbage (old pentium 166).

    But I find out that while I put power on, if I was holding the INSERT
    key and/or the END key, it has put all default values in the bios and
    I was able to reconfigure my BIOS!

    This is a very cool way to recover a BIOS wich the settings prevent to
    go back in the BIOS config page. Hope it will help someone else!
