Try pressing "F2" or "Del" at system start. This should get you into the BIOS setup. As you don't say what model you have, I cannot advise any further.

NEC laptop stuck in Phoenix BIOS Setup Utility


While in the BIOS setup utility, go through the tabs/menus looking for BOOT sequence. Configure the laptop to boot from CD-Drive before any other drive. Have the installation CD in drive.Save the changes made to the BIOS configuration, and exit the BIOS. Reboot.
If the installation medium itself does not have a problem, you should be able to boot from it and have the opportunity to install the operating system.

Bios utility


BIOS Setup utility?

Dell laptop?

Lot of information here.......let me see if I can sift through it.........

Post the model number in a Comment.
The model number can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

As soon as you turn your laptop on, watch for the Dell logo screen.
WATCH the bottom of the screen.
What key does it state to press, to - enter BIOS Setup?

Write it down.
If Windows loads let it load, and run a few minutes. Then turn the laptop off normally.

THIS time AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on that BIOS Setup key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

You may hear beeps. Those are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it. Ignore them.

This will get you into the BIOS Setup utility.

If Windows doesn't load, press the CTRL key, and ALT key, and DELete key, AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart your laptop, and start tapping on that enter BIOS Setup key.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

NO KEYS FUNCTION AND ALL I SEE IS NTLDR MISSING BUT NO KEYS WORK TO GET TO BIOS


NTLDR missing is typical of Windows not findind some system files during the boot, I believe nothing wrong with the hardware.

First enter in the BIOS and be sure that in the boot device list you have the CD or DVD before the HDD.
Second Boot the PC from CD with the Windows CD and try to repair the Windows installation.

To enter the BIOS Setup Utility, do as follows: 1. Turn on the computer. 2. When the Lenovo logo comes up, immediately press F2 to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.Note: If the customer has set a supervisor password, the BIOS Setup Utility menu appears after the password is entered. If the customer has set a user password, you can start the utility by entering that password; however, you cannot change all of the parameters.

Please let me know if you need more support.

Best regards

Black Gateway screen Help


I had a problem starting up from the black screen. I went the route of restoring the laptop not know of a possible "common" problem. The following is what I used for my system restore to get my laptop running, perhaps by following the steps to change the bios it might also fix your problem. If anything it doesn't hurt to try at this point.

URL: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/582490-freezing-during-full-system-restore.html

do these steps to disable SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility and then run System Restore again on your computer.
1. Turn on the computer and begin pressing the F2 key in one-second intervals. If you perform this step correctly, you see the BIOS Setup Utility menu. If Windows loads normally, repeat this step.

2. In the BIOS Setup Utility, press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced menu.

3. On the Advanced menu, change the Intel SpeedStep setting from Enabled to Disabled.

4. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu.

5. On the Exit menu, select Save Changes and Exit

6. Restart the computer and run System Restore.

7. After completing the restore, download and install the Critical Update for Windows XP (KB885626) package from the Microsoft Web site.

8. Once the KB885626 package is installed, re-enable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility.

Entering bios setup


Occasionally, most computer owners will need to access BIOS on their computers in order to change or update the computer's most basic operations; such as memory and boot order.

Different computer manufacturers will have you press different buttons to access BIOS depending on the model you have. For example, on my laptop, I press F12 to enter the BIOS setup utility.

Here's how to figure out how to enter your computers BIOS setup utility. 1
Turn your computer on or shut it down and restart it if it is already on.
  • Step 2 As soon as the computer starts up, watch for a message that informs you about which button you will need to push in order to enter setup, aka BIOS.
  • Step 3 The opportunity to press the correct key to enter BIOS passes by quickly, so you need to find that key and press it before the computer moves on to the next stage of booting. If you miss your chance, just restart the computer and try again.

    You can always access BIOS, even on computers that dont have an operating system installed. This is because BIOS is part of your computer's motherboard hardware and has nothing to do with Windows, Linux or whatever operating system you may be using.

    I had installed one software that was bios update after installation that software Hp pavillion dv2000 bios configuration had chage. how can i solve this problem now my laptop cant detect the harddrive. it...


    Restart your laptop, and immediately press DELETE to enter BIOS setup. Select "Load BIOS Defaults". Navigate through the menus;
    you should see "auto-detect disk-drive". Run that utility.
    Save the updated BIOS settings, and exit from BIOS-setup.

    If all else fails, take the computer to a qualified technician.
    It's probably just a 10-minute "fix" for an expert.
