I cant reformat my ibm pentium 4 where can i find the advance bios i press all the functions but icant see the advance bios


Try the below steps and I hope it'll work for you.

1) Shut down the operating system and turn off your computer.
2) Press and hold down the F1 key, and then turn on the computer.
3) When an IBM or other logo is displayed or if you hear repeating beeps, release the F1 key. The IBM BIOS Setup Utility will start.
4) Select "Start Options" from the first menu.
5) From the Start Options menu, press <Enter> on the top bullet labeled "Startup Sequence" (it is above all the other options). This brings up a new "Startup Sequence" menu.
6) Change boot order as needed using arrow keys.

Keys to use at boot time to access bios


It isn't keys, 3glarry, it is key.

It is either the F1 key, or the F2 key.
This key should be displayed when the Gateway logo comes up.
Gateway logo appears? Look quickly at the bottom of the screen.

Preferred method to enter BIOS Setup is this;
As SOON as you press the Power On button, start tapping on the appropriate key. Tap in 2 second intervals.

You may hear beeps. These are Stuck Key Error Code beeps.
You know they aren't real, because it is you that is doing it. Not a stuck key on the keyboard.

Why use this method?
Because the window of opportunity to enter the BIOS Setup utility, goes by F-A-S-T!

Now, may I ask what you are doing in the BIOS Setup utility? Post back in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

What's your problem?i have a dell optiplex 755 (tower).. it was working fine.. but one day when switched it on,, it doesnt behave normal.. and no screen was showing on the monitor.. the pc was sho


Welcome to the world of Windows 7. Don't you miss Windows XP? LOL, Windows 7 is a nightmare just like Vista.

Anyway I think it's your Memory. You mentioned moving the memory chips around, but you didn't mention trying one at a time. I think one of them is bad.

Memory ChipRemove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.Try just working with one of them in Slot 1 and swap them out in just Slot 1.

Oh, I just thought of something else, Maybe you have bad Capacitors on the motherboard. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case. Take a flash light and look inside the computer at the capacitors. They look like little Battery Towers. If any of them are spewing corrosion out of them, they can cause the computer to go crazy just like yours is doing.

Reset the BIOS on a Compaq server 740 jumpers settings


Don,t do that insatead:
Entering the BIOS Setup menu Entering the BIOS Setup menu requires pressing a specific key at a specific time. If you fail to enter the Setup menu on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful:
  1. Close all applications that are currently running and restart the computer by clicking Start , Shut Down , Restart the Computer , and then OK .
  2. When the red Compaq logo or blue HP logo screen appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard to enter the Setup menu.

NOTE: An alternate to the above steps, especially if the logo screen disappears too quickly to enter BIOS, is to shut down (turn off) the computer. Wait 30 seconds, turn the power on and press F10 or F1 at the logo screen. Reloading the default settings Complete the following steps to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup settings:
  1. In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Exit tab.
  2. Select Load Setup Defaults .
  3. Select Save Changes and Exit (pressing F5 and the Enter key will also load the Setup Defaults).
  4. Press Esc and then Enter to exit Setup.

How to access bios on Dell Inspiron 546


As soon as you turn your computer on, and see the Dell logo, start tapping the F2 key.
If you miss this window of opportunity, wait until Windows has fully loaded, then restart your computer. Try again.

(The Dell logo comes up pretty fast. If you miss entering BIOS Setup, {System Setup is Dell's term}, then as soon as you press the Power On button, start tapping on the F2 key. Tap in 2 second intervals)

Acer Aspire SA85 stays on Acer logo


Hi bob,

Usually system stops at the startup screen or the startup logo, when it finds some fault in detecting the IDE drives(ie,your harddisk or cd drive), if you dint get any get stuck in the logo, you have to see what happens at the background by clicking on f1 key or f12 or TAB or some key to show the activity rather than logo.....

After seeing the error we can conclude or decide about the problem, but when you were not able to see the screen after pressing any key as specified in your manual, Or it hangs after the LOGO screen, this must be problem with your harddrive, try changing the harddish or try connecting once again by removing it...


Enjoy Rate!

I want to install the operating system in my pc, but don't know how to boot from cd-rom


When you start the PC, there will be a logo or something on screen, and there will be a text like: "Press Del to enter setup, press F8 for boot menu." The keys can differ, but thats about what it says. Press the key to enterte boot menu, then set your CD or DVD-rom drive at the first place in the list. Quit the setup, insert the disk, and wait. There will be a text like: "Pres Eter to boot from CD." Press Enter, and the installation will begin. I hope this answers yor question, Yannick.

Used Dell Dimension 3000 drive issues


If you mean you need to install windows, you need to set your cdrom drive as first boot device in advanced bios settings or it will try to boot into a non-existent windows. Make sure your hdd is showing as the master drive, save settings and exit bios. Re-boot pc with windows disc in cd drive and hit enter when prompted to boot from cd.
