You will need to reset your CMOS. You can do this by either removing the battery from the board for about 20 minutes than replacing it. It will automatically throw you in to your F2 or F12 setup. Or look for a jumper near the CMOS. Sometimes depending on PC Brand, just holding down a keyboard button continously during boot up will give you a keyboard error and take you to Setup. If one of the above doesn't work, hit me back on this forum and I will provide more help.

How to boot from a cd?


Its very easy to boot from a cd.

When you put a cd in sometimes the computer will ask you to press any key to boot from the cd.

You can also try:

1) When you boot the pc the manufacture Logo pops up as the first thing on the screen, when this happens press F12 for the boot menu. The boot menu will show 3 or 4 options to boot from select the cd drive and you will be good to go.

2) If you do not see the cd drive in the boot menu then when you reboot the machine at the manufacture logo screen press F2 for the setup screen go to the Boot menu/order and set your cd drive to be recognized. Once its recognized go and re do step 1.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask me.

How can i go to bios setup


Straight from the Dell website:
  1. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  2. When "F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu" appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press .

If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.


I hope this answers your question!

I want to enter BIOS setup of a fujitsu siemens scenic desktop


When your computer first starts up, almost immediately after you push the power button, a prompt on the lower portion of the screen (but not always lower, sometimes upper) will appear saying 'Press F2(for example) to enter BIOS, or SETUP.
You don't have very long to press the button, as the screen will change quickly, but the most common bios entry hotkeys are Del, F2, F10 or F12. Hope this helps.

When you first start your computer how do get it to read the disc first?


You go into Boot Menu, and set the - first boot device to CDROM.
The computer will then read what is in the optical drive, first.

Computer off, press the Power On button. Watch closely for the blue dell logo.
Looking at the bottom of the monitor screen when the blue Dell logo comes up, you will see - F2 = Setup.
At the top right of the screen you will see F12 = Boot Menu.

This screen goes by F-A-S-T!
As SOON as you see the blue Dell logo press the F12 key.

If you miss this small window of opportunity, just wait for Windows to fully load, then click on Start, Turn Off Computer, and Restart.

If Windows is not loading, then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME. (Not shouting)
This will restart your computer so you can try again.

Upon entering Boot Menu you cannot use your mouse anymore, you have to use the keyboard.

The Boot Device Menu has the devices listed, and each device has a number next to it.

At the bottom of the menu, type the number that is next to CDROM, then press the Enter key.

This is Dell Support, and the main page for the Dell Dimension 4700 Service Manual,

Left-click on - Entering System Setup

Can not Boot from OnBoard SATA Hard drive.....it keeping looping...


Turn on (or restart) your computer.
When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F12>.
The Boot Device Menu appears, listing all available boot devices. Each device has a number next to it.
At the bottom of the menu, enter the number of the device that is to be used for the current boot only.

If this works and you want to change the setting permanently do the following:
Turn on (or restart) your computer.
When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F2>.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the Boot Sequence menu option and press <Enter> to access the menu.
NOTE: Write down your current boot sequence in case you want to restore it.
Press the up- and down-arrow keys to move through the list of devices.
Press the spacebar to enable or disable a device (enabled devices have a checkmark).
Press plus (+) or minus (–) to move a selected device up or down the list.
