?key sequence to chane boot order

I'm in the BIOS of my Acer Aspire laptop. I need to change the boot order (to boot to the CD). The legend on the right side of the Bios Boot screen says that in order to move a selected device up or down in the boot order: press + or - . When I do this the computer only beeps. What am I doing wrong?

Just a guess but you have to select the item from the menu (some hit enter, some right click) then use the +/- to move

OK, found the answer on a another forum. An Acer Aspire requires use of f5 and f6 keys to move/change boot order after a device is selected (contrary to the legend on the right side of the boot screen).

Could you perhaps take a mobile phone picture of it and upload it to us?
