Advanced boot options


Lenovo Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) settings allow you to quickly customize interactions between your operating system and your hardware, especially your hard drive or drives, memory and power supply.
You must get into the Lenovo BIOS before your operating system loads.
Though most users don't typically see options for entering or using the BIOS, multiple changes can be made to customize and optimize your system, such as changing your boot device order and changing the display brightness to conserve power.

Turn off your Lenovo computer.
Press the power button to start your system.
For best results, wait 30 seconds to one minute before starting your system.
This gives you a longer window in which to enter the BIOS.

Press "F1" as soon as the Thinkpad logo appears.
Depending on your Thinkpad model, you may be prompted to press either the blue "Access IBM" or the blue "ThinkAdvantage" button instead of "F1 or F2."
If this is the case, a message will appear stating "To interrupt normal startup, press (one of the listed buttons above)."
Select the "Start setup utility" to open the BIOS setup menu.
Follow the instructions provided in the BIOS setup menu to select BIOS menu sections, settings and to change options.
Next, navigate through the Bios setup pages using keybard arrow keys in order to find failsafe or optimized defaults press ENTER to select your option press F10 save to cmos and restart

I want to change language of my ibm netvista desktop


The IBM Netvista should have options to change the language settings built in if you read the manual but generally, if you follow these instructions it usually works.

Go to the BIOS utility and change the language:

To run the Setup Utility program, use the following procedure.

1. Shut down the computer and wait for all lights go off.
2. Start the computer.
3. When the Setup Utility prompt appears on the screen during start-up, press F1. A Setup Utility menu will appear.
4. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5. When finished, select System Summary to verify that any configuration changes have been accepted.

9. Press and hold F1 for a few seconds to open the BIOS Setup.
10. Press F5 for a few seconds, choose YES, and then press Enter to load the BIOS defaults. (Use the arrow keys to choose YES, if necessary.)

This is what the Compaq site had to say about the BIOS utility for your system (Source: Compaq): • • • •You may have difficulty accessing the BIOS Setup utility screen, because you must press a specific key(usually F1) very quickly before the Windows screen appears. If you do not enter the BIOS Setup screen on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful.

1. Turn off the PC and wait about 5 seconds.
2. Turn on the PC.
3. When the first screen appears, press the F1 key on the keyboard. (You can press the key more than once.) The BIOS Setup Utility Main menu appears.
NOTE: On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.

You may need to remove the battery and then back in.

Unable to Acces BIOS on IBM Netvista 607931u w/ Phoenix ROM BIOS


When the IBM Setup Utility program prompt is displayed, quickly press F1.
The prompt is displayed for only a short time.
if you dont see the prompt, tap F1 repeatedly as the computer starts. If it says "starting windows" you've let it go too far and will have to restart again and repeat the process to get into the bios

I think your problem is LCD. To make sure, try entering the bios when your pc starts. You can enter bios by pressing F10. If within the bios setup utility, your problem remains same then yoy need to change the LCD.

Bios Set


hai, Harish
your problem seems not BIOS related.
The problem is that some of your installation is not completed.
If you have the XP CD, insert it and complete the installation.

For changing the BIOS setup, just after switching on the computer, press DEL or F2 (refer motherboard manual for the correct key) to start the BIOS utility program to start.
Be careful before changing anithing in the BIOS.
