The Dell Precision T3500 is a desktop workstation designed for businesses. It can be customized with a wide range of configurations. Each T3500 uses the same type of basic input/output system, or BIOS, for controlling many hardware settings. An administrator of a T3500 may need to enter the BIOS configuration menu occasionally, to make changes to the way the system runs.

Turn the T3500 system on. Restart the system if it is already turned on.

Press the "F2" key as soon as the T3500 keyboard lights flash. The BIOS menu loads.

Press the arrow keys to navigate throughout the BIOS menu. Press the "ESC" key when finished, to exit the BIOS.


Press "ALT" and "F" simultaneously to restore BIOS default settings.
