What keys change bios values on asus u46e

Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

this will set the boot order
hope this helps

if this fails you might try some of these

Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Restored to factory default cd/rom dvd drive not installed driver not found

This is likely a BIOS problem.
If you restored factory defaults, the BIOS may have reset to a default configuration as well, one that may not include a setup for your CD drive. Assuming this is what happened, here are some steps to try to get it working again. Note that the pictures are from my computer, and what you will actually see will depend on yours, but it will often be similar.
1. Shut down your system if turned on.
2. Immediately after turning on your computer, look for instructions for 'Setup' or 'Configuration'. There will be the name of a key to press; often this is one of the F keys, such as F2, F5, or F12, or the DEL or ESC key. It varies from computer to computer. You must press the setup key before the screen advances. If you miss the prompt, simply reset your computer and try again. This will open the BIOS menu. hyblademin.png

3. Look for 'Drive Settings', 'Drive Configuration', or otherwise a block of settings referring to "Primary," "Secondary," "Master," and "Slave" drives, and use the keyboard to navigate the menus to get there. Be sure you read the instructions at the bottom of the screen so that you know which buttons to press. hyblademin_0.png

4. Again paying attention to the controls at the bottom of the screen, make sure each drive is set to AUTO. If that setting isn't available, try setting either the Primary or Secondary (whichever one shows no drive) to CD or CD/DVD.
5. Press the ESC button or see the instructions at the bottom of the screen to learn how to exit your BIOS. Make sure you select Save/Exit from the list of choices. If you accidentally change any other setting, simply choose Exit (do not save), and you will be put back at the boot screen. You may then try again.
I hope this helps. Good luck!

Can't change the boot sequencefrom bois..for Toshiba Laptop.

If you successfully selected CD ROM, try saving the changes you made and then ensure that you have a bootable CD in the drive when you power on the system.

Dell C600

Here goes, first download the A12 BIOS from this page or others,

Then, Run this file to make a bootable bios floppy disk. Reboot the laptop floppy will start dos mode, the updater will detect any bios newer then A12 and say finished without changing anything and come to an a: prompt.

type dir for a list of files on the floppy. If your typing gets you wierd symbols try holding the Fn key (lower left) lookfor the filename C600_A12.exe or somthing like this. type it at the a prompt exact. The bios flash will check system bios and ask your permission to revert back to A12. say Y.

Computer will reboot. take floppy out.

My batteries charge grat now, but I don't get all ythe settings pages in Bios that I should, It seems to hang when i enter Bios. Laptop works fine though. i have installed and tries all bios from A12 yo A23, the A12 seems to be the best. No problems from winXP.

Hardware and driver problem

Please check on the bios whether the drive is shown.(press del button, to get into bios(before booting on to OS))If the drive is not shown on bios it means that there is no problem with the OS.

My cd rom is not shown/detected by my computer. The computer says no cd rom connected,but all the connections are intact,

Have you set the jumpers at the back of the cdrom to slave if you already have another peice of hardware on the same idr cable, if not and only the cdrom is in the ide cable it should be set to master. Also check the bios to see if it is recognised, press F2 or DEL on start up and see if it's there under standard bios settings.
