Dear Sir,
Please port details questions to help us to serve you better. The answer which I'll be providing you is based on assumption on the little data you have provided.
Press F1 during startup,in BIOS settings check whether the New processor you have installed in shown or not. I think you also need to upgraded you BIOS. Go to your motherboard manufacturer's site and there you can find the software for upgrading BIOS.
Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.

How do I access the BIOS settings for the P5LP-LE motherboard. The startup key says to press F1, but pressing F1 does nothing.


The instructions say:
"Hold down the F1 key during the startup process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter/reset any custom BIOS settings." I would also try hitting the F1 key multiple times from the very turn on of the computer because the key may have to register at some point after turning on.

Try clearing the CMOS settings as explained on this page, it should clear out any passwords and will set the BIOS settings back to factory settings.

As for "The CPU fan runs normally on boot, but as soon as the Windows flash screen comes up, the CPU fan slows way down."
This is quite normal. On start-up the temperature of the CPU is not being read, when the flash screen comes up just happens to be the same time that the computer recognizes that the CPU is cold and doesn't need to be cooled.

On the "Then the installation program starts running and the CPU Fan speed starts fluctuating wildly from slow to extremely fast."
This could be normal as when files are read from a DVD the CPU doesn't work hard, but when it unpacks the files or does calculations it does work hard. Or it could be that the thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink is not correct. Either dry , not making contact, or even too much. If the heat is not being transferred that would also explain the shut-down.

I have an IBM Think Pad type 2373. whenever I turn the computer on I get an error: 0210: Stuck Key 01 It says to press F1 to fix it, I do this and nothing happens. Can you please help me fix this?


F1 may appear as a secondary key on your computer. When the error message starts, try first pushing the 'Fn' key (near Ctrl), and then clicking the F1 button. Then you can follow your computer's instructions to fix the problem.

Hello,
Yes, this should be possible. Just check the connector behind your graphics card to see if the LCD's cable can fit into it. If not, you can obtain a simple converter to enable you connect your LCD.

Help and support not opening


This will be a virus or hard drive problem. Run you anti virus to see if it finds anything that may be eating up your system. If doesn't find anything, then try a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc, this will fix the missing or corrupt files. If you have any issues during or after the repair then you can assume that the hard drive is going out. More that likely a sector is going bad.

NO signal error


Hi sir,

Hope this will give you ease of mind and or hints. The No Signal error screen message is normal it depends how much delay it responds to (design or default time delay) the video card down to CPU and control units. The blank screen can be resolved by turning off the screen saver(s) you have and even to BIOS mainboard setting; disable the "turn off monitor after how many seconds" or related menu, etc.. Hope you can manage to enter BIOS maiboard setup.

Best regards,
