Advanced boot options


Lenovo Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) settings allow you to quickly customize interactions between your operating system and your hardware, especially your hard drive or drives, memory and power supply.
You must get into the Lenovo BIOS before your operating system loads.
Though most users don't typically see options for entering or using the BIOS, multiple changes can be made to customize and optimize your system, such as changing your boot device order and changing the display brightness to conserve power.

Turn off your Lenovo computer.
Press the power button to start your system.
For best results, wait 30 seconds to one minute before starting your system.
This gives you a longer window in which to enter the BIOS.

Press "F1" as soon as the Thinkpad logo appears.
Depending on your Thinkpad model, you may be prompted to press either the blue "Access IBM" or the blue "ThinkAdvantage" button instead of "F1 or F2."
If this is the case, a message will appear stating "To interrupt normal startup, press (one of the listed buttons above)."
Select the "Start setup utility" to open the BIOS setup menu.
Follow the instructions provided in the BIOS setup menu to select BIOS menu sections, settings and to change options.
Next, navigate through the Bios setup pages using keybard arrow keys in order to find failsafe or optimized defaults press ENTER to select your option press F10 save to cmos and restart

Cpu fan > just stops working


Most likely there is some kind of software management of the fan.
Boot to the BIOS CMOS settings, and see whether there is a "Quiet Fan" or "Q-Fan" setting (or the like) enabled.
Disable this by selecting "Fan runs always".
If you could provide the model number of the desktop, I may be able to give you more specifics.

I am unable to fromat my IBM machine,its not


your bios maybe infected with a virus. first try removing the cmos battery in your ibm machine for 1 minute and put it back. next, make sure that the hard disk is working and is not corrupted try making a new partition in a different pc. Paste all the files from the windows xp installer to your newly made partition. next put the hard disk into your ibm pc. and wait till it boots into your hard drive and the setup will begin. make another partition for your windows xp system and install it to that directory. if you cannot boot into your hard disk, there may be a problem with your ide cables. try checking the cables from your ibm pc connected to your hard disk.pm me if you still have problems and questions.. heres my email jmizpahadonai777@gmail.com
Thank you

IBM Netvista desktop bios problem


this is more like a workaround that I used on a laptop which cd room drive just failed (and which I did not want to replaced as it was more expensive than the whole laptop)

If you can't select the device you want to boot from.. you may want to partition your hdd and format it so it loads a dos operating sytem .. use another machine and a win98 startup disk to do this then copy your I386 folder from your winxp cd into the new formatted hdd so when you put the hdd back into the IBM machine it loads dos and then going into the I386 folder you can run a winnt command for you to install the os.

IBM Netvista desktop bios problem


First of all if you re formatted the drive You have lost ALL of the information on that drive. Next you don't need to go through BIOS in order to boot from a disk. You can press F8 on the screen that you would normally enter BIOS with.

Hope This Helps
All The Best,

Reset my Compaq D51C PC Desktop BIOS


Hey there mat-rix, the errors reported are configuration related. You can fix this problem by downloading a reference disk from IBM ftp.pc.ibm.com Here you can get pub/refdisks/rf5060a.dsk (this is the image file), and also get pub/utils/ldf.com to write image onto a diskette. Once you get the disk prepared, boot with it, and run setup. If the errors still occur, replace your battery with a new one. and try it all over again. Good Luck!
