How do I unlock the Bios on an Acer ES-1 111M Laptop


To boot from a CD, DVD or USB device, make sure that the device has boot sequence priority over the hard drive.

BIOS Boot

BIOS (Basic Input Output Subsystem) is a programmable chip that controls how information is passed to various devices in the computer system. A typical method to access the BIOS settings screen is to press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the boot sequence.
BIOS settings allow you to run a boot sequence from a floppy drive, a hard drive, a CD-ROM drive or an external device. You may configure the order that your computer searches these physical devices for the boot sequence.
The first device in the order list has the first boot priority. For example, to boot from a CD-ROM drive instead of a hard drive, place the CD-ROM drive ahead of the hard drive in priority.
Before you set boot priority for a USB device, plug the device into a USB port.
To specify the boot sequence:
  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, a menu may appear.
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  5. To give a USB device boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:
    • Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    • Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    • Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
  6. Save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  7. The computer will restart with the changed settings.

Boot Priority Options

Some computer manufacturers allow you to select the device that contains the boot sequence from a special device selection menu. The example below uses a Dell system board.
To set boot priority using a device selection menu:
  1. When the computer starts to boot up, after the manufacturer's ID screen, press F12 several times. The device selection menu appears.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to select CD-ROM or

How to boot from usb on a powerspec


PowerSpec computers, as do all personal computers, have a motherboard inside that provides power and support to every piece of hardware that makes up the entire machine.

When your computer is first turned on, a small chip on the motherboard that houses a small piece of software called the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) fires up before anything else and directs the startup processes for the rest of the computer.

By entering the BIOS settings, you can alter these startup procedures and control the power flow to certain components or stop them from starting up entirely.

The BIOS settings are only recommended for advanced users, as an improper change can stop your computer from starting up. Shut Down


Shut down your computer completely.
Do not make it hibernate or reset.

You need a fresh startup to enter the BIOS settings.
Waiting Period

Wait about 10 or 15 seconds after shutdown to allow the computer to become completely dormant.

Rebooting

Turn the computer back on and immediately begin pressing the "Delete" button on your keyboard at regular intervals (every two seconds).

Eventually the BIOS settings appear.

The display will look monochromatic and antiquated when compared to a modern Windows display.

This is typical of the BIOS setup screen.
Using the BIOS Menu

Using the keyboard arrow keys to move around the BIOS menu advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to USB press "Enter" to select options once they are highlighted.
Press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
and

Don't make random changes to the BIOS, as an improper setup can render your computer effectively useless.

Default boot order for emachine laptop 732


Step 1:
All computer systems go through a set of instructions called the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) when they are turned on. The BIOS checks all of the hardware and software installed on the computer to make sure they are working properly before loading the operating system. You may need to access the BIOS menu periodically to find out the current version of the BIOS you have if there are upgrades available. The command you use to access the BIOS settings on an Emachines computer will vary depending on the specific model you have.

Access the Start menu and click "Shut Down." Select the "Restart" option. Wait for the Emachines logo to appear on the screen as the computer begins booting up again. Press the "Tab" key when the logo appears and see if the computer switches to the BIOS menu. Press the "Escape," "Delete," or "F2" keys if the "Tab" key doesn't take you to the BIOS menu screen. Use the right arrow key to highlight the "Main" entry and press Enter. Scroll down to the heading labeled "BIOS version." Check the long string of numbers and letters under the "BIOS version" heading to locate the current BIOS version your Emachines is using. Press the "F10" key to exit the BIOS menu screen and finish booting up the computer's operating system.

Dvd drive not seen in bios


Your computer's BIOS is an critical part of your system when it comes to hardware integration. This especially true when it comes to setting up hard drives and optical DVD drives. You can access your BIOS settings menu during the boot process of your computer. Different computers have different protocols when it comes to accessing the BIOS settings but many can be accessed by pressing "F1" or the "Delete" key before the operating system is loaded up. Consult your computer's documentation or pay close attention to your boot prompts displayed on the screen to enter the BIOS settings menu.

Turn on or restart your computer system. Press the appropriate key during POST in order to load the BIOS settings screen. You will have a short window of opportunity to press the appropriate key before the operating system loads. Search your BIOS menu settings for the appropriate menu concerning your attached hard drives and CD/DVD drives. If you are not sure where to navigate, consult your computer's owner manual. Check the drive menu to see if your DVD drive is listed. Many BIOS manufacturers give the user the option to scan for attached drives if the component does not appear to be listed. If the DVD drive does not appear after the hardware scan, turn off and disconnect your computer, take off the case cover and double check the data and power connections to the drive. Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive if it is of the IDE variety; SATA drives do not have any jumpers to set. There are three jumper settings for IDE based DVD drives: "Master", "Slave", and "Cable Select". Make sure the jumper is set to "Cable Select". Put the computer back together and plug it in. Turn on the computer and re-enter the appropriate BIOS settings menu. If the DVD drive shows up on your drive list, your computer has recognized it properly. Enter the boot settings menu of your BIOS. Change the boot order of your DVD drive to the first position so the computer will read it first during start up. This step is optional; however, you may wish to have this arrangement in case your computer needs to be started from a DVD boot disk later.
