E440 emachines bios key

I cannot boot up my laptop. I get a black screen. I can hear the fan humming, but I do not see the e-machine logo and it does not go into Windows 7. I'm not sure if this is because of a virus or my hard drive is not working. If I put a Windows recovery disk in the DVD drive, I can hear some action but I cannot see anything happening. I'm not sure if the boot order is hard drive or DVD first so I try to go to setup but pressing F2, F12 and Del does nothing. Actually I cannot even see the e-machine logo page. Any suggestions. Thank you.

SOURCE: Replace hard drive on Compaq presario 2190US

I have a 2190 with the exact same problem. I have now found that it is the hard drive. The hard drive should spin with random clicking, not that clock-like clicking. The hard drive is located in the front edge of the unit looking like a drive door. Remove the two rubber plugs and two screws. Pull the "drawer" sharply to toward you to unplug the drive. Then try to boot the computer without the hard drive installed. The computer will now let you enter the bios, etc. Weird, huh?

SOURCE: Can't start windows: Hard Drive - No drive detected

The laptop cannot see/detect the hard drive. This means the hard drive is faulty or it needs reaeating.
Remove the hard drive and inserting again, then reboot the laptop, if it still cannot detect the hard drive then it is faulty.
You need to purchase a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive.

Laptop hp cq62 not start, black screen. after pluging ac cord he start itself, and after that, it is impossible turn it of.


You can generally only flash a bios if you can get the machine to boot up into some operating system. Do you get ANY on-screen logos or messages when you apply power to the laptop? Can you get into the bios when you power up the laptop and press Esc (or F2 depending on your model)? Do you hear any sequence of 'beeps' when you power up the laptop? A series of short/long beeps when powering up indicates some kind of error detected by the Power On Self Test (POST) routine. Do you have the HP recovery CD for your laptop? Have you put it in your CD Rom drive and tried to boot up? Check the manual at HP Support for a hard reset procedure- you could have a bad power button board or other hardware problem-it is not usually a BIOS problem.

How do you remove case on emachine T5048


1) Close out any open applications and restart the computer.
2) As the machine boots up (at the eMachines logo), press F2 (to enter the BIOS).
3) Once you are in the BIOS, navigate (use the keyboard directional arrows) to the Exit Tab.
4) Under the Exit Tab, choose "Load Optimal Defaults". When you are asked to confirm, select "Y" (for "yes").
5) Save the changes and Exit the BIOS.
6) No more loud fan!! Awesome!

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.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Acess bios setup


To access the bios setup: when the machine first boots up, you'll hear a beep, once you hear that beep, i believe you need to hit F12, or Del keys repeatedly until Bios comes up. Sometimes, on the Logo screen it will say what to hit to enter bios setup, look in the corners of the logo screen.

Thanks Mark

Suddenly my e-machine monitor stopped working. After unplugging the pc then turning it on, the screen is black with the e-machine logo. It also says F2 and F10 (bios and I forget.) What do I do/


It isn't the monitor at fault here, the boot stops at BIOS screen because the BIOS cannot find the OS - either it was corrupted beyond access (try a Repair install if you have important data on it, otherwise just do a full reinstall - much safer) or the hard disk has died (replace it and reinstall).

How can I prevent my E Machines logo from loading everytime I start my computer. I have Windows XP.


Press and hold the F2, F12, or F8 function key (one of the three at a time) after jhearing a single beep following a restart. One key (usually F2) will allow you to change the BIOS settings. (If the computer boots normally, restart it again and try the next function key.)

BE CAREFUL. Don't change anything you are not sure of because doing so can make your computer inoperable!

You will eventually get to the BIOS settup utility. You will have to use the keyboard to navigate to the setting that disables the splash screen. (You may have to enable something like "detailed boot report" or "OEM settings", depending on the computer.)

My American Megatrends (AMI) BIOS has a "BOOT" section that contains a "Full Screen Logo" setting. I "Disabled" it to do what you want to.

Incidentally, the splash screen doesn't really slow the boot process much, since you are simply substituting a static picture for the BIOS boot information.
