Get your ethernet drivers from here, copy to a USB key/write to CD/etc, and run on your laptop.

Re: Boot from CD

When you boot up the notebook, press either F2 or Del, this will get you into the cmos settings, navigate to advanced cmos settings and normally at the top line is the boot sequence which will say HDD, press either up/down keys or + - keys to change to cdrom as first boot device, save settings and exit. Insert you cd rom before the system boots into windows and the option prompting you to press enter to boot from cd will appear for 30seconds.

In the BIOS are you able to "discover" the CD-ROM device? There should be a way such that you can specify what devices are connected to the system.

The BIOS version should recognize what devices are attached to the system.

You may need to "flash" (upgrade) the BIOS. Now a days, BIOS upgrades are available on the manufacturer's website.

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

SOURCE: Boot sequence / bios password issues with Acer Aspire 5100

for removing bios password you must have to remove cimos bettery for few mnuts but for doing this you have to open case of laptop
and it is not adviceable because your notebook is new one
so find any service station if yor laptop is in warranty period or you may lose your warranty
there isn't any other way to clear cmos without opening case of your laptop and remove cmos bettery
unless you will get cmos password but as u said you didn't put password in your laptop it might be possible that your notebook manufacture him self had put any password in cmose as a company policy
in that case also you must have to go to them

SOURCE: Boot sequence / bios password issues with Acer Aspire 5100

The finger print bull is how that password came up for me and they want a 125.00 to remove it. I called the better business bureau and filed a complaint. They shouldn't have any right to control your laptop. I to have a 6292 , took it apart as far as I could and could not find jumper or password. This is a gimmick to make money.

How to change setting in bios to boot from cd drive"?"

you usually dont have to change the boot order to boot from a cd. the bios should check the cd rom before booting from the hdd. However, if that isnt the case, you can always change the boot order.

go to the bios settings while u turn your laptop on. (It should be "esc" for HP. a message will be displayed at the bottom of the screen indicating the key. if not, try esc, f10, f11, f12. either one of them should work).

go to the boot order settings (May have a different name- boot settings/ boot priority settings/ advance boot options etc.).

Vista will not load from CD

Your computer is probably set to boot to the Hard drive BEFORE the CD rom in the BIOS. Research how to access the "system configuration" or BIOS when your computer first turns on. Search through the BIOS menus and see if there's a place to set the "Boot Order". Change the boot order to boot to the CD Rom before the Hard drive.

Boots only to bios settings, then blank screen after save and exit. will not take a cd boot.

Hello, since it can boot to bios setting, then have you try configuring the boot order,the cd drive should come first,after that your hard disc, if the hard drive comes before the cd rom then it would not recognise it. Change the settings and Save this settings, then try to boot from the cd again, if this does not work then i am rest assured that your hard drive has a problem,and you need to find solution to it by getting a new one. cheers Regards

I recently had a huge virus attack on my laptop and there is still this worm that my system picks up but not my anti virus i need to format my laptop but it does not seem to want to boot from the cd what...

Take a can of air and blow some air onto the laser gently to make sure no dust or dirt is affecting it.

Then go into the BIOS and make sure the cd-rom is the first boot device. Then put your operating system cd into the drive and "press any key" when that message comes up so the system can boot up off of the cd.

If after setting the cd-rom as the 1st boot device you can't get the laptop to boot up off of the OS cd then that means the cd-rom is bad and would need to be replaced. When you boot up off of the cd-rom your in DOS and any viruses or worms wouldn't affect it.

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

My toshiba satellite a50, i want to change boot order to cd drive

You need to go into the bios or utility set up. At start up there will be a Toshiba screen, on this screen at the bottom, it will read something like, esc to enter bios, or F1 to enter bios, F10 to enter boot menu, at this point you will need to press which ever it says to go into bios. Bios can also be refereed to as utilities or utility set up. Now, if you change the boot order in the bios, it will always check the CD drive before the hard drive. If you only want or need to boot from the CD drive this one time, then you will need to go into the boot menu at start up. When you get to the boot menu, it will give you a list, then you choose CD drive. If you go the boot menu route, be sure the CD is in the drive when you select CD drive, otherwise it will see there is no CD and skip straight to the hard drive. Keep in mind that on some machines it blows right past the Toshiba screen, so you may have to try a couple of times or just be quick to make your selection as to bios or boot menu.
