You're talking about My PC and device manager and I'm talking about Bios.
The BIOS (stands for Basic Input/Output System) is system software inside your computer that helps the computer start up, even before Windows does. It also contains key settings about what the computer has on board.
In newer computers, it exists on a special chip called CMOS (stands for Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor).

You can go into the BIOS to edit or change the technical information about key components of the computer like disk drives, keyboards, and display settings. It also keeps track of the date and time.
The BIOS can normally be accessed when you start your computer. You may see a reference to "Setup" when you turn your computer on. That’s your opportunity to get into the BIOS. It usually requires the push of a function key, such as F10, to get access to it. That "F" key varies between computers. Sometimes it’s not even one of the Function keys, but the ESC key or DEL key.

If a logo screen—like HP or Dell—is displayed during the start up process instead, then you may want to check with your computer maker for a command to turn off that screen and display the start up information, which is listed when a computer is powered on.
A partial list of BIOS access commands by brand is listed at the end of this article.
The BIOS also contains the boot-up sequence. Normally, computers are configured to boot from a hard drive.


Before you do anything to your BIOS, it’s always a good idea to record the original settings on a sheet of paper that can be kept in a safe place so you can reference it later if you need to reset it.
Here is a list of key sequences for various brand-name computers. If yours is not there, check with your manufacturer or watch for info flashed on-screen when your computer first starts, before Windows begins. It may say

"For setup hit..." That will be how to get into the BIOS on your machine.
Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc
ALR PC: (F2) or Ctrl+Alt+Esc
AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)
AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc
Award BIOS: (Del) or Ctrl+Alt+Esc
Compaq: (F10) (do this when the cursor is in the upper right corner of the screen blinking)
Dell: - F1 or Del.
Dell: - Some require pressing reset twice
Dell: - Ctrl + Alt + Enter
DTK BIOS: (Esc)
Gateway 2000: - F1
Hewlett Packard: - F1
IBM:
Older Models - In order to get into the configuration of the IBM setup screen (CMOS) screen you need to hold down both mouse buttons during boot up.
Aptiva - Press F1
IBM PS/2: Ctrl+Alt+Ins after Ctrl+Alt+Del
IBM PS/2 with reference partition: - Press Ins during boot
Some PS/2s, such as 75 and 90: - Ctrl Alt ?
Some PS/2s when pointer at top right of screen: - Ctrl + Ins
NEC: - F2
Packard Bell: - F1 or F2
Phoenix BIOS: (F1), (F2), or Ctrl+Alt+Esc
Phoenix BIOS: - Ctrl+Alt+S
Phoenix BIOS: - Ctrl+S
Phoenix BIOS: - Ctrl+Alt+Ins
Sharp Laptop 9020: - F2
Sony: (F3) while you are starting the PC, then (F2) or (F1)
Tandon computers: - Hold down the key after turning on power
Tandon: - Ctrl+Shift+Esc
Toshiba Laptops: - Toshiba Utility
Toshiba: - Press Esc during boot
Toshiba, Phoenix, late model PS/1 Value Point and 330s: - Press F1 during boot
Olivetti PC Pro: - Shift+Ctrl+Alt + Num Pad Del
Miscellaneous PC’s: - Ctrl + Esc or Ctrl and Alt and +
Zenith: - Ctrl+Alt+Ins

I have purchased Fujitsu MHV2080AT. It says new hardware found and it is ready to use but I dont see any drive on mycomputer. But if I see in mange it show the "VUZIVSW_HV228AV RL2 2 USB device"...


Right click MyComputer and select Manage. Look for Storage on the right and select Disk Management. Find your drive and format the partition by right clicking it and selecting Format. Use NTSF, default allocation size then give the drive a letter or name. After that it should show up in MyComputer.

Why my sound is not avalable playback and recording devices


If your system is not playing out audio music or even the start up tone then you need a sound driver on your system but if you have a sound driver on the system already and you did not hear any sound coming from your system probably you disable it. Goto start menu click on MYCOMPUTER and from there right click on it and click on properties from there you will click on hardware then click on device manager from the device manager you will found the sound /audio driver then by it right click on it and click enable . that will allow the system to voice out ok.

I have 12 Drives All 12 Drives are found but when I burn a DVD The Some drivers fail and it is not the same ones all the time


Usually, a driver update is used as a solution to an issue with how Windows works with a piece of hardware.

Updating a driver can also enable new or updated features for the hardware.

To access Device Manager, use any of the following methods:
  • Click Start, click Run, and then type devmgmt.msc.
  • Right-click My Computer, click Manage, and then click Device Manager.
  • Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
  • Type the following command at a command prompt: start devmgmt.msc


You can use Device Manager to change the way your hardware is configured, and to change the way your hardware interacts with your computer's programs. With Device Manager, you can update device drivers for hardware installed on your computer, modify hardware settings, and troubleshoot problems.

Device Manager enables you to:
  • Determine if the hardware on your computer is working properly.
  • Change hardware configuration settings.
  • Identify the device drivers that are loaded for each device and obtain information about each device driver.
  • Change advanced settings and properties for devices.
  • Install updated device drivers.
  • Disable, enable, and uninstall devices.
  • Reinstall the previous version of a driver.
  • Identify device conflicts and manually configure resource settings.
  • Print a summary of the devices that are installed on your computer.
If the device is experiencing a problem, the type of problem is displayed. You might also see a problem code and number and a suggested solution. If you call a support line, this number can be useful for determining and diagnosing the problem.

How to install a new driver from Device Manager loadTOCNode(2, 'summary');
  1. Double-click the type of device you want to update or change.
  2. Right-click the specific device driver you want to update or change.
  3. Click Update Driver to open the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the wizard instructions.

Rolling back to a previous version of a driver loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); Use this feature if you encounter problems after you install a driver, such as error messages when you access the device, faulty behavior of the device, or even the inability to start Windows.

Windows XP provides this roll back to a previous, working, device driver:
  1. Right-click the device for which the previous version of the driver is desired and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Drivers tab.
  3. Click Roll Back Driver.
If you cannot resolve the problem with these instructions, contact the manufacturer.
