when i enter BIOS there is no way to set the boot device and just say after exit "install boot media and try again"

you can change a few settings in BIOS but as long as you can remember what changes you have made so if anything goes wrong you can restore bios to original settings

enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Hello! I would like to know how to disable the onboard video card on Asus P7H55-M Pro mainboard... could you helo me please? thanks!

Hello ,
Just go to the bios settings and find the option to disable the onboard video. But make sure to that your booting video is pci.
You can set those options in bios settings.

To go to bios settings.tap the del key or f1 or f2 key continiously the minute you turn on the system.

If something goes wrong try removing the small battery cell from your motherboard and fix it back again in 5 min.

i cannot seem to update the bios, it keeps saying jumpers not set properly. in the bios screen it says boot sectors is set to erasable. my machine type is the acer power 1000 (w athlon chip)

1. Don't flash your BIOS unless you really need to. If you got a reason for flashing your BIOS, by all means, but remember that If you load the wrong version or something goes wrong, it's a new motherboard that you will be needing.
2. Get the correct install procedures from the makers of your motherboard or the place where you downloaded the BIOS update from. If you know how to read, you know how to do it. There is nothing very complicated here.Be safe and good luck. :-)

Black screen!

lets check a couple of things. I'm sure you know that a laptop can be hooked up to a external monitor or projector, There is a button usually F5 Or close to it that will turn your monitor off and send it to the external one. In some models of toshiba this will stay in effect even when you turn it off. You can toggle this setting by holding the FN key down and pressing the appropriate "f" key. try this first before you chuck it. There also may be a problem in the bios. Let me know how it turns out. Take care..Be mucho blessed... Mark

faulty time settings p5rd1 vm


That's the 2nd time i hear that kind of problem. Your mboard battery is new, and you did not press "f1" at first start.

so i guess , the cmos time is not change, try go to the bios setup and load "bios setup default." after that change the time setting on the bios. please find time setting and set it with a current ime in your area. after setting press 'F10" to save and exit the setting, the system will restart.

may this help!
