Wheni start computer black screen and says press f1 or press f2 how can i fix it thanks


Hi,

This is usually indicative of either 1) new hardware was installed or 2) the CMOS battery is failing. Did you recently install new hardware into the PC? If not, you may want to try replacing the battery. It's fairly straightforward - try this link for step by step instructions: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000239.htm

ESC Key BIOS Password removing procedure
1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the Esc key. The computer will display the "Password = " prompt.
2. Enter the correct password, and press the Enter key. The computer will display "Valid password entered, system is now starting up. Check system. Then press (F1) key"
3. Press the F1 key. The BIOS setup program will appear.
4. Using the arrow keys or the tab key, move to the password field, and highlight REGISTERED.
5. Press the spacebar, enter the correct password, and press the Enter key. The Password field will change to NOT REGISTERED.

F2 Key BIOS Password removing procedure

1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key. The unit will display the "Password = " prompt.
2. Enter the correct password, press the Enter key. (You may need to press the F2 key after you hit the enter key.)
3. The BIOS setup program will appear.
4. Using the arrow keys, move to the Security tab, and to Set User Password.
5. Press the F5 or the F6 key to navigate to the Password section. Enter the current password at the Old Password prompt, and press Enter. At the New Password prompt, press Enter (without typing anything into the password field). At the Confirm Password prompt, press Enter again (without typing anything into the password field). The password should now be removed.
6. Press F10 to save and exit from the BIOS Setup program.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Boot your computer with that disk
