try pulling the plug on the system board to make the default settings in bios. Unplug all drives and see if you can get in bios this way. Check that it passes memory testing too..start with minimum devices attached (memory and video).
Hi there. If you don't have the option of hitting F12 to change the boot order to the CD/DVD just as the computer starts up then you will have to enter the bios to change the boot order. Restart the machine and hit either Del or Esc to enter the bios, look for the boot order and set the CD/DVD as first boot device, hit F10 and exit the bios, the computer will restart and you should now be able to boot from the CD/DVD. Please post back with the results and if you need anymore help.
When you first start the computer press the f 8,(that is the key most use to get into the bios). Set everthing to the default except the drive sequence which you want the cd first.
If I am not correct,then go to the support webpage and downlad the manual.
Go inside to your BIOS menu then set the BOOT sequence to CD as the first boot so when your PC with the operating system installation disk inside it will load the installation wizard.
Good luck hope that helps........
You need to enter your CMOS/BIOS setup and set your "First Boot Device".
Immediately after powering up, press the "Del" key, display will show CMOS/BIOS settings. Verify that all your hard disks are being detected/recognized by your PC. Thereafter, set your First boot device to your new HD. Save and Exit.
Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things are or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Assuming the power supply is ok, and the pc is a few years old, it could be a flat cmos battery so check for the disc shaped 3V battery and see if it's flat.
Whilst you have done that look for the JBAT1 terminal and put jumper on pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to 1-2.
Look at the capacitors (tube shaped things) for the tops and sides swelling, if so mobo needs replacing.
You need also to check the power supply leads to the motherboard and check its connected to mobo ok.
Start up pc if it will and set the time and date in standard bios settings.
