Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RX753 PC Desktop

1 Answer

When booting system I get message: Hardware Monitor found an error. Enter power setup

Every time I start my computer I get this message. If I press f1 to continue and ignore it, the computer will start to boot up, sometimes even will bootup and even run a while, but it always ends up shutting down on its own. I cleaned all the dust out of it and it seemed better for a week or so but then started again. What could this be?

This is a sign that your cmos battery needs replacing on the motherboard its a cr2032 flat disc shaped battery and normally resides near the memory slots. The battery being flat is losing all the hardware and bios settings, F1 just passes this check and allows a boot, you will probably find the time and date is incorrect which is a sure sign of battery problems

    In doing a system restore i managed to wipe out windows in my el1852w ..now the screen says,install windows..X Windowscould not complete the installation.to install windows on this computer restart...


    As PC starts watch screen for message "to enter setup press del" or similar. (press F!, press F2, press F12).Power down the PC and then power it back up. Be ready to press the KEY to enter setup while message is on screen. If you do not see the "enter setup" try holding the delete key as machine powers up.
    Then repeat while holding F1 key etc. Once you enter setup (CMOS SETUP) find the boot settings and select CD as first boot drive. Put your full install CD in the CD drive have the license code ready. Example; AB123-1RD5C-XP94D-MN47G-LRIPQ. Your key will be on the CD sleeve or license sticker on PC. With install CD in drive power PC up. The PC should boot from the install CD. Do a full install on C drive. This should format your C drive erasing everything on drive C. Format with NTFS (new technology file system). During install the PC will restart a few times. At one point it will require you to type in license code. About half way thru install you will be instructed to remove all disks from drives, at this point you enter setup (CMOS) again and change from boot from CD as first choice TO boot from HD and second choice boot from CD. If you can not complete install you may have a hardware problem. GIVE plenty of time for each install step. Install may appear to have stopped but it will continue when it has completed that step.

    I am stuck in the boot up process with the option


    Look at the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) LED light...
    Is it a steady red? Put your ear to the computer case. Do you hear a repeating clicking sound?
    You should be able to press [F10] to get out of the BIOS Setup. If not, it may be a loose hard drive cable (open up the PC) or a failing Hard drive (replace).

    MY LAPTOP(hp compaq presario v2000)BEEPS TWICE AND DISPLAYS PRESS F1 TO RESUME OR F2 TO SETUP!pls help


    Hi, and welcome to FixYa
    The computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
    1. New hardware has been recently installed.
    2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
    3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
    Solution:
    New hardware has been recently installed
    If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS.

    Error or confliction with settings in CMOS
    If no new hardware has been added to the computer or the new hardware has been removed and you continue to receive the error, it is likely that there is an error or confliction with the CMOS. Press the key requested to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct. If everything appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults and/or Reset Configuration Data. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000976.
    If all settings appear to be correct, save changes and exit CMOS setup. If the error continues to appear, enter setup again and restore all CMOS values to default.
    · See our CMOS page for additional help and information with the CMOS.
    · Additional information about getting into the CMOS / BIOS setup can be found on document CH000192.
    CMOS battery is bad or failing
    If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, it is also possible that the CMOS battery may be bad or failing. Generally; when this occurs, the computer is not holding the time or date correctly. If this is occurring it is recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.

    SYSTEM ERROR


    1) if you have nothing in a USB port you will need to set bios
    Try removing M/board battery for 2 to 3 hours some people say less then replace it most times it should set BIOS back to default
    also check setup of hard disks master slave etc

    Last resort with 15 seconds you should be able to see
    press ?? key to access BIOS next boot keep pressing key see if that works
