computer. If it is set to Enabled, BIOS will shorten or skip some check
items during POST.

Typematic Rate Setting
Determines if the typematic rate is to be used. When disabled,
continually holding down a key on your keyboard generates only one
instance. In other words, the BIOS will only report that the key is
down. When the typematic rate is enabled, the BIOS will report as
before, but will wait a moment. If the key is still down, it will report that
the key has been depressed repeatedly. You might use this feature to
accelerate cursor movements with the arrow keys.
Typematic Rate (Chars/Sec)
When the typematic rate is enabled, you can select the rate at which
the keys are accelerated.
Typematic Delay (Msec)
When the typematic rate is enabled, you can select the delay between
when the key was first depressed and when the acceleration begins.
Determines the access limitation to the system and Setup, or just Setup.
