Problem changing boot sequence in BIOS

I was trying to change the boot priority in the harddrive group of the BIOS. It says on the right side to use + or - to move the devices up or down. I wanted to move the 2. disk (Intel) into first place. But with +/- nothing moved. I tried 2 different keyboards, but no luck. Anybody have an idea what could be the problem?

Which plus/minus's are you using? the numpad ones? or the ones on the top row next to bkspace?

If numpad ones, don't forget to enable the numlock

I was using the ones on the keyboard, not the numbed. But I will try those too. Thanks for the tip.

Great call. The numeric pad worked. People should be told things like that. Thanks again.
