Cannot Access BIOS

After turning on NOGUIBOOT in msconfig (one of tips in latest issue of Maximum PC) my computer will no longer boot. I cannot get to BIOS to change boot order to CD first because it doesn't even activate the keyboard. This has occurred on 2 boxes, one at home and one at the office. The office box allowed me to reset the NOGUIBOOT, so that one's ok, but the home box is still messed up. Both run XP Pro SP3. Never will I follow one of those 'so called tips' again. Any ideas really appreciated.

    thanks for suggestion. I doubt that this is the problem because it would be very coincidental for the battery to fail right at this moment. Anyhow, when I get home I'll give it a try and let you know.

Unplug the power from the unit, Open the computer and remove the bios battery. Let it sit overnight reinsert the battery and then the the power. If the issue is within the bios this will clear it

Did you make any changes to the computer prior to the issue?

This issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:
a) The basic input/output system (BIOS) does not detect the hard disk.
b) The hard disk is damaged.
c) Sector 0 of the physical hard disk drive has an incorrect or malformed master boot record (MBR).
Note: Some third-party programs or disk corruption can damage an MBR.
d) An incompatible partition is marked as Active.
e) A partition that contains the MBR is no longer active.
Method 1
I would suggest that you update the basic input/output system (BIOS) to the latest version by contacting the motherboard or computer manufacturer and check if it works.
Important: Modifying BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

Method 2
If the above step fails then I would suggest that you perform startup repair on the computer and check if it works.

Speed up computer start


win 7 ultimate means nothing except you've got some added features.

what you need to do is open up run and type msconfig
this will bring a new window up now click on the tab start up and carefully go through disabling the features you don't want to start on start up.

also remove any files from the desktop and reorganize in documents (yes a cluttered desktop is untidy)

once done the next thing you can do is to defrag and clean and temp files away. see how it runs if it still runs bad

have a look in the BIOS their may be some performance things you can turn on but I do say that if it has an Over clocking mode you leave this to auto, changing this can damage the PC and even cause hardware to fail

Power failed during MSI P67A-C43 B3 bios update


Download the latest BIOS update from your computer manufacturer's website onto a USB flash drive. Refer to your user manual to obtain the manufacturer's website address. If the downloaded BIOS file is a zip archive, unzip the contents onto your USB flash drive. Jumper settings may need to be reconfigured on some motherboards to enter BIOS recovery mode. Most Intel-based motherboards have a jumper setting or switch near the on-board CMOS battery. The procedure for setting the jumpers will vary depending on your motherboard make and model, so refer to the motherboard documentation for specific instructions. Power on the computer and press "F2" to access the Setup Mode menu. If you are unable to access the setup menu, you will not be able to proceed with this repair. Take your computer to a repair shop, as the motherboard may need to be replaced. Use the arrow key to select "Boot Priority" or a similarly named field. Press the "Enter" key. Scroll down until "First boot priority" or "First boot drive" is selected and press "Enter." Select the USB flash drive as the first boot priority device. Press the "F10" key to save this setting and exit from the setup menu. Connect the USB flash drive to an open USB port on your computer. Then let your computer fully reboot. The USB flash drive should be detected and the BIOS should update automatically. When the update is complete, you may be prompted to restart your computer, or it may reboot automatically. If you are able to use your computer without any further problems of overheating or failure to recognize drives, your failed BIOS update has been resolved.

Hi I just bought a Intel Core 2 Quad q8400 for my gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L. It won't boot up!!! It freezes when I try to enter bios setup and if I do manage to get in, it freezes at the options screen. It...


What size power supply are you running? If you are not running a minimum of 400watt , I would anticipate issues with this type of processor. Since it is freezing right away, it could be bad memory. You can try memtest86.com to download a memory test tool to verify.

Secondly, you may want to reset the board by moving the jumper from normal mode to reset mode.

last thing, it's not impossible for a processor to be bad. Since it is an Intel processor; it should have a 3 year warranty on it. Any dealer who sells Intel should be able to warranty replace it for you.

Boot failure


Most likely, your hard drive died. Enter the system BIOS to see what it is detecting (or not) for your hard drive(s). If the hard drive is not being detected as I suspect, you could just replace it and reinstall all of your software.

I accidentally changed my CPU clok frequency from 100 to 250 and now my computer won't boot?


Ok I realize this is old and you may have given up by now or gotten it figured out, but I'm gonna try to help even with that being said, first of all I just recently had the same problem, this is a sure fire way to fix your issue,
step one, open up your computer so that you have access to the motherboard,
step two, find the system battery.
step three, near the battery there should be a jumper, this will be a little plastic piece with metal connectors inside it, it should be slid onto two pins out of three available, move it over one space meaning if its on the left and middle move it to the right pin and middle pin, the three pin pole should say cmos right by it, or clear cmos.
step four remove system battery, no need to worry this is just the memory for the cmos chip and it will revert it back to when the board was new, you can change the settings in your bios program back to what they were when it last worked,
step five, making sure that your power cord is not hooked up to the computer in the back, (no power to computer) press and release your power button a few times, (this will drain the capacitors stored power)
step six, walk away for about 20 minutes, just to make sure that clearing of cmos was a success,
step seven, replace cmos battery.
step eight, move jumper back to original possition.
step nine apply power to the computer and boot up should be operatioinal again, you can then go back into your bios setting and change as wanted, however I would only overclock a little at a time as boards will only handle so much overclocking before they will freeze up, i would not go more than 200 mine froze at 200 so you may not even want to go there, Hope this helps.......
