hi everybody,
i have a bios problem.
i can't enter it...
until recently i could do it by pressing the F1 key in the "power on self test" step. but now, i don't get the "press F1 to enter setup" message,
and it doesn't respond when i do press it.
instead, i get another message in the start-up process to press ctrl+s to enter setup. and there i have very few and limited options (it says it is "intel boot agent").
i don't really know what caused this change. 2 things comes to mind:
1. i installed win xp sp2.
2. i added another network card (2nd one in my comuter).
i have no idea how to load my old bios.
i tried to update bios version, i tried removing the motherboard battery,
non of which helped...

please, if any of you have an idea what to do i would appreciate it very much! !

here are my MB details:
model: asus p4b
chipset: intel i845
