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.

Advanced boot options


Lenovo Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) settings allow you to quickly customize interactions between your operating system and your hardware, especially your hard drive or drives, memory and power supply.
You must get into the Lenovo BIOS before your operating system loads.
Though most users don't typically see options for entering or using the BIOS, multiple changes can be made to customize and optimize your system, such as changing your boot device order and changing the display brightness to conserve power.

Turn off your Lenovo computer.
Press the power button to start your system.
For best results, wait 30 seconds to one minute before starting your system.
This gives you a longer window in which to enter the BIOS.

Press "F1" as soon as the Thinkpad logo appears.
Depending on your Thinkpad model, you may be prompted to press either the blue "Access IBM" or the blue "ThinkAdvantage" button instead of "F1 or F2."
If this is the case, a message will appear stating "To interrupt normal startup, press (one of the listed buttons above)."
Select the "Start setup utility" to open the BIOS setup menu.
Follow the instructions provided in the BIOS setup menu to select BIOS menu sections, settings and to change options.
Next, navigate through the Bios setup pages using keybard arrow keys in order to find failsafe or optimized defaults press ENTER to select your option press F10 save to cmos and restart

usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

Enable PS2 & USB in BIOS You can enable PS2 and USB settings in BIOS by entering the BIOS setup screen when the computer boots. You will need to changes to the appropriate settings in this screen. The exact procedures vary by system, but there are a few common methods that may work if the motherboard manual is not available for guidance. The general procedure is the same for any modern computer system, but the menu arrangement and keystrokes to enter the setup program can vary greatly from one machine to the next. Power on or restart the computer and watch the initial boot screen to find the keystroke required to enter BIOS setup. This is often shown at the bottom of the screen. Typical keystrokes include pressing the "F1," "F2," "F9," "F10" or "Del" key. Press this key when the prompt appears on the screen. You can find the proper key in the computer's motherboard manual or on the website of the motherboard or computer manufacturer. Enter the BIOS setup screen and look for the "Advanced" or "Onboard Device Configuration" menu. Use the arrows to select your choice and press "Enter." Change the settings for the PS2 port by moving the menu choice to the "PS2" setting. Press "Enter" to bring up a smaller menu with the options to enable or disable the PS2 ports. Select "Enabled." You can also use the arrow keys or the plus key to change the current selection from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in order to enable the PS2 port. Change the settings for the USB port by moving the menu choice to the "USB" setting. Press "Enter" to bring up a smaller menu with options to enable or disable the USB ports. Select "Enabled." Alternatively, use the arrow keys or the plus key to change the current selection from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in order to enable the USB port. Save the settings and exit by pressing "F10" or using the "Esc" key to back out of the current menu. Choose to save and exit from the main menu if needed. Follow any additional instructions on the screen to save or navigate the menus. Hope this helps.

Why do the following messages: Del:Enter Set UP and F12:Boot Menu appear on screen after the computer is turned on?


These are things that someone with a high level of computer knowledge would use. Setup is for getting into the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and changing low level settings. The boot menu is for booting off other devices such as a CD or a flash drive instead of your hard drive. This is also used for installing windows or running utilities such as memtest.

Monitor won't stay on. Error message comes up that says "no input signal", then monitor goes out.


Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
