No need to go into the BIOS setup for such simple and easy task, go to start -> right click My computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Start up and Recovery ->Settings -> now u can choose the default os and time out also u can edit the boot.ini manually by clicking edit

Hope this solves your problem.

How to fix NTDLR MISSING error.

3. When you computer restarts you should eventually see the words "Press Any Key to enter Setup". If you do not see these words and it goes to the screen that gives you the error message, you will have to change your boot priority in your bios settings.

A. When you see you’re the first screen, the boot screen, press delete a few times until your computer beeps. Pressing the delete key will bring your computer up into the bios settings. The key you need to press may differ from computer to computer. If the delete key doesn't work for you, contact your computer manufacturer and ask them what key you need to press to get into bios.

B. After you are in your bios settings you will need to navigate to your boot settings. Depending on which type and version of BIOS you have, this process may be different. Either way, there should be a section called Boot or Boot Priority. Navigate to that and make sure that your CD-ROM has top or first priority. After you have don't that, save and exit (press F10).

4. Once you see the "Press Any Key to Enter Setup" message, go ahead and press any key.

Dell Inspiron 546 MT : replaced cmos battery due to checkpoint error, and now receive a CMOS checksum error and asks to either press F! to run setup or pree F2 to load default values and continue. Wh


Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today.
My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Jbellovary.

Since the battery was removed the CMOS would have Cleared as it needs power from a battery to retain the settings.

This therefore means that the BIOS/CMOS has already been reset to defaults and this is why it is giving you this message.

It sees that the settings have changed and it wants you to tell it why.
When this screen comes up Press F2 to load defaults.

Then let it run.
You will now need to enter the BIOS/CMOS by tapping the delete key on first powering on your computer, until you see the BIOS/CMOS screen.

Now set the date and time and set the Boot priority to HDD, then DVD drive.
Also enable USB2.0 support if it is disabled. Check that your drives are being detected.

Save and exit setup.

It should now be A-Okay.

Take care!

how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased
or if using XP
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears. Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system. Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.
Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control userpasswords" (without the quotes). Click OK.

Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.

Willn't boot up frome the cd rom


You can do this by changing the BOOT Priority in your BIOS settings.

To get into BIOS:-
When you first turn the system on, you get what they call a POST screen (normally has the laptop logo or enegy star monitor rating), at the bottom of the screen, it should give you an option or two (i.e. F1-Boot Options, F2-Setup (also called BIOS). Different systems use different keys to enter the BIOS (or SETUP), this is usually F2 or Delete.
Once you are in the BIOS, just have a browse for BOOT OPTIONS or BOOT PRIORITY, and change the value of FIRST BOOT to CD-ROM.

Save these new settings to CMOS and exit. The system will now reboot, and this should solve the problem
