Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop
Unit Will not boot up with out hitting F1 and I can not get in to setup ,it says cpu changed need to go to setup to reset but I can't get in to setup. It just goes to blank screen and stops there. I tried cmos didn't work . If I update bios thank that will get me back Thank Larry
Can you get it to go into windows at all?
Did you actually change the CPU?
When it says to hit F1, keep hitting it repeatedly, you will kow it acepted it when you hear a little beep from the P.C. Case
then it should go into bios. if not, then it may not be recongnizing the keyboard.
typically this issue occures because the internal clock is off do to apower shortage or the Bios battery has dies. Its a little watch battery on the system board. If you can get into windows, check the date and time, set it and it should sync the bios clock.
Let me know how it goes.
