You do not need to insert any Cd to get into BIOS. You just have to hit the Esc key as soon as the toshiba logo appears. I am not sure if the system can boot from a USB CD drive though..

Screen says reboot and select proper bootdevice


Guessing, but it sounds like your hard drive has been damaged. You may need a new drive, or at least repairs. If you have a "rescue disk", give that a try.

Format aspire4736z


Hi there.

To format you will need:
Operating Systems (OS) CD/DVD

Steps:
1) Enter the BIOS when the laptop boots by pressing the Delete key repeatedly.
2) Once the BIOS is open locate the boot disk priority and set prioity 1 to the CD/DVD drive, set priority 2 to the laptop's hard drive.
3) Save changes to the BIOS and exit. The system should now reboot.
4) Insert your OS CD/DVD.
5) Press Enter when the system asks you if you want to boot from the CD/DVD.
6) The OS setup should now start, the first thing it will ask you to do is format your hard drive.
7) After you drive is formatted you can either continue with the setup and install a fresh copy of the OS or you can exit leaving the main drive clean.

I try to format my pc 1st time its operating system is windows xp i have inserted a xp cd ..... and click reboot but no change occur and i am also unable to format all other drives which donot have os...


First of all does the cd boot into the xp installer. If not the the setting in the Bios would be to boot from HardDisk first. Get into bios by the appropriate key on boot and change the boot order to cd/dvd first and then hdd. Now save settings and restart the system and the xp cd should boot up and you will be able to install xp. Be careful as you may delete all data on the hdd.

Some bios use the del or f2 key to enter, see press __ to enter setting's or bios.In that goto the boot order and change appropriately.
If xp is already installed then if other drives are not acessing saying not formatted then the easy fix would be to right click on non formatted drive and click on format. Then you will be able to access it. Do same for all other drives.

Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Poweron password


Power on passwords are tough, but if you can get into the BIOS and set or make sure that your CD/DVD ROM drive is set before your IDE hard drive then you should be able to boot from a Windows installation CD, format the hard drive, and preform a clean install and start fresh. Otherwise personally I know of no way of hacking/recovering a Power on password, I don't even think removing the BIOS battery will do it as I believe it's stored in non volatile memory. But if not, removing the BIOS battery would be a last resort.
Good Luck though.
