You can goto BIOS setup be pressing DEL, ESC, or one of the "F" [function} keys just before " memory count " finishes.To see what is turn 'on' or 'off' look through the menus & submenus.look for video [ ON if you have 'on board' video and off if you have a EXTERNAL video card.]
temperaty take EVERYTHING out by unpluging the wires going to computer (mother board) [cd's, h/d, floppy drive, and any other extras] You can keep them 'dangling' from e.i. floppy, cds [rom,ram,dvd etc.] keep the memory, display adapter (if you have a EXTERNAL video card) and boot up the computer.You must see the memory "count up" in DOS (black screen with numbers running on left side of screen) .At first if the machine does not turn on, replace the video card.Then after UNPLUGING a/c power put back ONE piece of equipment at a time (of cause you will replug a/c power)and rebooting.

    does not light moniter send inittial signal to keyboard flips from dvd to cd drives need to reset bios""
    I am most sorry but I don't understand what you are trying to say..

    I asked you to start from the begining....Take everything out ( or disengage hardware ) except video card (if you have one), memory (if you have more then one stick, leave only ONE! stickin)
    turn the computer on to see if (1) memory counts, (2) if you hear any beeps (some computers need at lease 2 sticks of memory) (3) if the computer comes on. You should be able to place a 3 1/2' floppy bith a program and play it. Better yet, boot up with a 'bootable' floppy to see if some things work. Then start installing one piece at a time. if that last piece cause problems, that could be your problem.

I forgot my admin password. what can i do?

You need to prepare:
1:A blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive
2.A computer which can link to internet
3.A program called
Windows Password Recovery 6.0

Get started with this 3 simple steps:
Step 1 - Download windows password recovery utility and install it.
Step 2 -Burn your Windows Password Reset CD:
To burn your CD, you'll need a blank CD-R and the .ISO file of Windows Password Reset.
Step 3 - Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows password.
hope this helps
UBCD4Win is a bootable CD which contains software that allows you to repair, restore, or diagnose almost any computer problem also has a bios reset tool which can remove your password and bios password
you will have to burn it to a disk as an ISO then you will have to boot from the disc 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 (note after you have removed your password you will have change fist boot back to your hard drive) Hope this helps

The problem is that it wont boot from cd/dvd..i updated bios..but had the same problem again,help please

Most probably one of the following reasons..

- CD could be corrupted
- CD was not written in a "Bootable" mode
- CD Drive could have become old. Time for replacing.
- Boot sequence in BIOS needs to be checked up.

There is are many things that can cause this, try the following:

  • Disconnect any extra items you may have hooked up, disconnect power connectors too (except mobo and fans) (HDs, CD/DVD drives, extra cards except the video card)
  • Remove all but one stick of ram, then rotate the ram in several slots, and swap out that chip with others if it doesn't boot yet (sometimes bad ram will cause your error)
  • Re-seat your CPU
  • after all this also reset your bios, this can be done by unplugging the computer from the wall and removing the battery from the bios, or on some boards there is a jumper to do this (See your manual)
I hope this helps.

No need to reset your BIOS to enter BIOS editing mode.
You'll need a keyboard that plugs directly into the keyboard port, not a USB keyboard. The USB keyboard does not function until later in the boot process and therefore doesn't send the DEL keypress signals when needed at initial boot-up.
Using a direct-plug keyboard, keep tapping the DEL key while your computer is booting up and it should catch the keypress at the appropriate time and enter BIOS editing mode. This way you don't have to get a single keystroke timed precisely to open the BIOS editor. If the computer starts beeping at you, don't worry about that. It's just telling you that you've filled up the keyboard buffer with DEL keypresses which is the intent.
Hope this helps, and please rate my answer.

Your not getting any video at boot up? I would be looking at your video card first. Remove & reinstall. Than try again to enter bios. Still no? Reset the bios on the motherboard. You'll have to remove the battery & check it for 3volt. Replace, got video enough to enter bios? Disconnect all non needed items. Like diconnect CD/DVD rom drives power cable & data cable. Got two Hard drives. Connect only one. Two banks of dimms. Use only one. 1PS2 mouse & keyboard. Try boot up again. Listen for post beep. (1 beep). Any other beeps, count how many and if long or short. Let me know. Lastly did you apply thermal grease between the cpu & heatsink?. The idea here is to get down to basic needs only. If it were your cpu it wouldn't even power up. Than again every board is a bit differant. Give this all a try & poat back. Good luck!
