Windows 7: Boot process hangs until I Press F1 key

05 Feb 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
Boot process hangs until I Press F1 key

Can someone tell me how to stop the boot process from hanging-up until I press the F1 key. After I press the F1 key the process resumes until the Windows 7 login screen appears. How can I stop the boot processs from requesting I press the F1 key?

I don't know how a Dell motherboard bios work but on my motherboard you can go into the bios and turn off press F1 key before boot.
Please make sure your cpu cooling fan is working as it should first.
