    well, mederbil, the comp we were working on USED to be a sony vaio, but has since been upgraded with the abit kv8 pro motherboard, geforce fx 7200 from a geforce fx 5200 graphics card, and up'd the ram to dual 512 mb sticks for 1GB RAM all were compatible. as a last resort he swapped the 7200 graphics card back to the 5200 card before taking it to the shop, and voila the darn thing works again. we'll be taking the newer card back of course lol. thanks to all who responded to me...it was very quick that i got a response and very helpful. thank you soooo much!!

Locked out from eee box 1035 need to reset bios how?


Try this. Right out of the manual. The reset button is the little pin hole next to the power. Will need a paper clip that is straightened.

Entering the BIOS Setup
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) stores system hardware
settings that are needed for system startup in the PC.
In normal circumstances, the default BIOS settings apply to most
conditions to ensure optimal performance. Do not change the
default BIOS settings except in the following circumstances:
An error message appears on the screen during the system
bootup and requests you to run the BIOS Setup.
You have installed a new system component that requires further
BIOS settings or update.
WARNING!
Inappropriate BIOS settings may result to instability
or boot failure. We strongly recommend that you change the BIOS
settings only with the help of a trained service personnel.
Quickly enter the BIOS
Windows8 boot time is quite fast, so we developed the following
three ways for you to quickly access the BIOS:
Before booting up the system, insert a straightened paper clip
into the BIOS Reset key.
BIOS Reset key
Press the power button for at least four seconds to shut down
your PC, then press the power button again to turn your PC back
on, and press F2 during POSt.
When your PC is off, disconnect the power cord from your PC's
power connector. Reconnect the power cord and press the
power button to turn on your PC. Press F2 during POST.

None of the keys work on hp logo screen F10, f11. f9. esc system won't boot from hard drive or cd


Hi,

are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

I'm working on an Emachine desktop PC running Windows XP Media Cntr Ed 2005. It worked fine for 6 mnths, but recently it wont get past a POST. It runs the POST startup tasks and then stops at the...


sounds like the CMOS memory is currupt, or you got a virus that worked its bay to the BIOS. I would first try to unplug the computer open the case and find the cmos battery. It looks like a big watch battery. Pull it out and leave it out for a good minute or so, plug it back in, and see if you can't get into the BIOS. If you do not find the battery. there should be a little jumper near the corner of your mainboard the says "CMOS" next to it. pull that out and leave it out for a minute or two. then plug it back in. This will clear anything in the bios and set everything back to factory defaults.. (this does not erase anything on the hard drive, just the options and memory in the BIOS)

When i turn on mt pc it beeps 9 times and noyhing


What you are hearing is a "post error code".

The codes vary depending on the manufacture.
For instance if you have a Dell 2400 trying searching the web for "Dell 2400 post beeps".

Although I believe 9 beeps is commonly a CMOS error.
If so, you can try clearing the CMOS.
You will have to know how to get to the Computer BIOS screen to set things if you do clear/reset the configuration.

How do i reset CMOS on kv8 pro? getting POST code 25 comp not booting up, tried replacing ribbon cable, also unplgged keyboard. HELP!!!


unplug your computer, then you will find a small battery on the motherboard, this is a small silver disk shape. you need to remove this by pressing the clip to its side, this lets it spring free. you then need to locate the cmos jumper. this is a 3 pin stand off with 2 pins already covered by a plastic sleeve. remove the sleeve and place it over the other two pins, wait a few seccons then put everythinbg back to the way it was. put the jumper back in its origional position and re-attach the battery making sure it is the right way up. plug in your system and give it a try.
