Updating the bios should be your first step in solving this problem.

Have you already tried this?

    Great, we're on the right track.

    Next thing I'd recommend is reseating the memory.

    And also removing all other pci cards, cd /dvd /roms, hard drives, etc. So that we're just left with one memory module and the video card.

    See if that makes a difference.

How do i change the boot order in bios on a clientpro 385 running xp?

Each retail manufacturer sets the BIOS screens up a bit different with different headers, but I can give you a generic "what to look for". Judging from your question, I am guessing that you already know how to access the BIOS setup screen in your computer. There will be a header which may be titled, "boot", "Boot Setup", etc. Sometimes under the old American Megatrends BIOS screens the boot order is found under the Storage Drives section, with other BIOS screens it may be different. I will use a Phoenix BIOS for an example. In general, here is what you do:
1. Restart the Computer and enter the BIOS Setup Utility; this is done by tapping a key repeatedly, usually the DELETE key (but not always).
3. Locate and Navigate to the Boot Order Options in BIOS
4. Make Changes to the Boot Order
5. Save Changes to the BIOS Setup Utility
6. Confirm Boot Order Changes and Exit BIOS
7. Start the Computer With the New Boot Order

I will use an example (I hope this website allows multiple pictures to upload, but here I go):
The first screen will look something like this, with a general posting of your components:

Tap your right arrow key to move this hilight over to the "Boot" header in the top, blue header bar (as below):

Now you have to figure out how this manufacturer set it up; usually guidelines are in the right column to help you, but the general rule is that you hilight the hard drive and (somehow) move it up to the top for the first boot device. Sometimes you hilight "Hard Drive", then press "Enter" and it gives you more options for moving it to 1st boot device. Other times you may be able to directly move it from this screen (above) by pressing a different key. Just work with it and eventually you will figure it out. If you still have the original manual that came with the computer they may (or may not) give detailed instructions.
When you finally get it configured, be sure to save it. This is usually done by pressing F10 key, it will ask you if you want to save settings, press Yes and you are done. If you need additional help, I hang out with a bunch of other techs at the (free) compute help forum, This website is not set up for easy back n' forth communication. Hope this helps you.

How do I get to the boot sequence on my probook 4730s laptop?

Most PCs have a boot screen message (like a logo) and somewhere on the page it says something to the effect of 'press F1 for setup' which takes you into the BIOS. Look for this message, and it will get you into BIOS where you can edit the boot sequence. If the boot screen flashes too quickly start hitting keys such as F1, F10, Del, Esc and see if it takes you in.... usually BIOS is one of those keys in my eleven years experience.

Upon start up, there is a blank screen with a cursor that goes no further. wh at are possible problems?

Shut down the computer and restart after 5 minutes. If same problem happens again you may have a corrupted hard drive. Before Windows boot, try to enter the BIOS or setup. Check the BIOS to see if it recognizes the hard drive - it should be listed, if not then the harddrive is bad or not connected. Also, see if it can boot a bootable CD (like the Windows setup disk) - set this up it in the BIOS to boot a CD.

Ver, very SLOW when booting up! Sometimes the

BIOS System defaults are best used for installing a new operating system or performing diagnostics. Bootchecks and memory checks due to settings on antivirus/antispyware programs are notorious for causing slow boots. In most cases these scans are unnecessary. Saying that, it is also possible you have acquired a trojan. Run a full system scan and if you have a clean machine, disabling the bootchecks and memory checks will speed up your booting. If after doing this your boots are still slow, tweak your BIOS as follows per Intel:

  • Set the hard drive as the first boot device in the boot order in the BIOS setup (Boot > Boot Device Priority menu).
  • Enable Intel® Rapid BIOS boot in the BIOS setup (Boot menu).
  • Disable Hard Disk Pre-Delay in the BIOS Setup (Advanced > Drive Configuration menu).
  • Disable system functions and features if you do not need them. Examples include:
    • Legacy USB - this must be enabled if you use a USB keyboard or USB mouse outside the Windows* environment (Advanced > USB Configuration).
    • Unused I/O ports, such as serial, parallel and IEEE-1394 ports (Advanced > Peripheral Configuration menu).
    • Event logging (Advanced > Event Log Configuration menu).
    I hope you find this solves your problem. All the best! Greg

Fujitsu C6387 slow to start

What may well be happening is that a peice of hardware, eg usb ports, network adapter, graphics driver or similair is struggling to find the driver for it and is hanging the boot up. It could also be a memory failure or a bios failure as the memory used by your system takes over after the first 64KB of built in bios memory. Start your laptop in safe mode (press F8) on start up, as this will load up with only the needed drivers, if it boots up quicker it may well a driver fault, it is then a process of illimination.
