Upon bootup, look at options to write to BIOS. Typically, can be any key from F1 to F12. You have a small window in which to stroke the key in which to access BIOS. Once within BIOS, you may change your language to English. Also, once in BIOS, change your settings to depict read format in this order:

CDROM, HHD

Should you have a floppy, enable that as well and place that prior to the CDROM.

Good luck.

My bios setup language is change. so how to change english language?


Most BIOS versions included a language option


Get the computer manufacturer and your computer model number.

If it is available, go to the manufacturer site and look for BIOS & Firmware upgrades.



Most BIOS versions included a language option

When your PC is starting up, press the Setup key. This is usually Del, F2, or F12.

The key, however differs with each machine.

It should be stated on the screen for a very short time which key is the setup key

you can change the bios settings by using the ARROW KEYS select it press enter and exit then press the F10 key to save to cmos and restart

if your not sure or you have made any wrong bios changes you can set failsafe or optimised defaults


if you are unable to change the bios language settings the bios might need to be updated or bios chip might need to be changed or flashed


Before flashing the BIOS do a search on BIOS flash and read the caveats.

Backup your current BIOS and only flash if it is absolutely necessary!!


If the computer vendor is unknown or unavailable, try to identify the motherboard vendor and model number if you can, BIOS updates are specifically associated with motherboard versions:



you can change the language settings

click start control panel regional and language options select regional language options from the drop down list select the language you want also from the bottom drop up list you can select your present location location or another language


hope this helps

I formatted Hard drive emachine T3304, Error message Bootmgr missing I want to install Windows 98


If you formatted the hard drive, you'll need to put the install disk in the CD to install Windows. But first make sure your machine is set to boot from the CD before it boots from the hard drive. You can do this from the setup menu (I think in an e-Machine you hit DEL or one of the special function keys on startup). Go to the startup option and set the CD as the initial boot device.
Your system may also offer the opportunity to press a special function key on startup to change the boot order for one time only.

I can't fomat my computer as i don't know how to set first boot device as my DVD drive


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to 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

but if you format your hard drive you will lose the current operating system and you will have to install another operating sytem unless you partition your hard drive and intall another operating system to that partition

I have Intel 845 series motherboard & I want to format my PC but when I put xp cd inside & restarts & press enter the boot doesn't start now how could i format ?


You have to change the BIOS settings to boot from your CD drive. It must have been set to boot from harddisk.
To do this you have to change the primary boot device from Harddisk to CD drive. When you restart your computer press DEL or F12 or TAB or F1(any one...Depends on your BIOS see manual or try all) to bring bios. In bios go to boot device priority and set the CD drive to boot first.
Restart your computer, it will boot from CD drive and XP setup will start.

Hope this will help...cheers:)

Help nothing on display


Are you able to press F8 and try safe mode? Did anything change as far as video when it stopped working? Do you have another monitor to try? A bootable CD is an excellent idea. You may need to go into the BIOS and change the boot order but usually putting a bootable disk in the drive will make it boot off the CD. Look around the BIOS settings and make sure everything looks ok there too. Probably not a solution, just things to try.
