You need to press F1 and go into the BIOS to setup and detect everything. You will need to set the date, verify it detects your hard drive and memory, and enable/disable items as you need for your system.

Once it looks good, do a Save and Exit.

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!

Hi names Rui,


For your problem 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 may be caused by any of the below reasons.

  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. Enter CMOS setup and save the settings and exit. If you continue to get errors continue to the next step.


Error or confliction with settings in CMOS

If no new hardware has been added or you continue to get this prompt verify no error or conflictions exist in CMOS. Press the key to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct.

If your time and date are not set correctly, your battery is more than likely bad. Try setting the correct time and date, save the settings and then reboot. If after turning off the computer the time and date get reset again replace the battery.

If the time and date are correct and everything else appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults.


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, your CMOS battery is bad. We recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.


hope this will help you.

My girlfriends Hp Pavilion A305W powers on then automatically powers off after it show a brief error message but also says F1 for startup. Should i press F1 and continue diagnosis?


Most probably your system is not getting your BIOS settings from your mainboard due to CMOS battery failure.

Check your CMOS 3.0v battery & replace it. Then reconfigure your BIOS settings from the CMOS setup.

Hope it helps

OverClocking Problem when startup my system


Most motherboards have settings that allow the board to try and overclock itself upon bootup. Take a look in your manual and it should lead you to the correct setting in the bios that will allow you to have the computer boot up in normal mode. Failing that, you may have to force the motherboard back to the default setup. There is a jumper you would have to move, then you would remove the battery from the motherboard. Check your manual for how to clear the CMOS settings if you need to do that step.

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.
