Yes most machines when starting up give you the option to press F1 to enter safe mode options. Are you having an issue with this?

What do I press to access the bios to reset?


Re-start the computer and well before it starts loading windows press the F2 key continuously until the screen pops up. If it does not and the computer loads and opens windows you were too late hitting the key or you were not hitting the key frequently enough. In that event you need to start the process over again by re-starting the computer again.

When i switch on my compaq presario V2000 laptop it beeps three times and then freezes giving me the option to press f1 or f10 but when i press f1 or f10 it still doesn't work and is still frozen


Hi....
Actually beep sound indicates hardware error or BIOS error.
Don't press F10 while starting.
Let your laptop to start wait for 10min....
If it will not starts..........
Press F1(BIOS Settings for some pc F2 is Bois Setting)

If it will load BIOS.......... then your BIOS is OK


Then you need to change hard disk...


If not you need to change BIOS hardware(IF you i will tell you the way restore BIOS but it's very difficult task.It needs a trained person.)

Thank you have a nice day............

My Acer Aspire 1500 laptop wont pass startup.


It seems that your laptop hardware is good and it seems that it is a software issue.

  1. Boot in safe mode: When your laptop start, press the F8 key. then it will ask you which boot device to boot from, browse using the arrow keys and chose something with HDD and press ENTER and then press the F8 key again. Then you will be given a boot option and choose SAFE MODE.
  2. While in SAFE MODE, try to uninstall your newly installed software that might be causing the laptop to hung up.
  3. Also, click Start => Run then type: msconfig.
  4. Go to the Startup Tab and uncheck the many programs that looks not necessary to load while windows is loading. The program like Yahoo Messenger, Skype can be opened manually so uncheck them if present.
  5. Click Apply then OK.
  6. Restart your laptop and see if it helps.

Need to set back to factory settings


There are a few ways you can do that, when you start up your pc at the top left corner it will say press f11 for recovery, it will only give you a few seconds to press it, if you press it you will be given options on how to start your recovery, or you can goto your start menu goto programs then scroll to system recovery, or you can restart your pc with the recovery disc that came with laptop to start system recovery.

Why wont my laptop run on my lcd hdtv made by Vizio


You must redirect the video output from the laptop screen to the TV.
It usually takes a keystroke combination, depending on your laptop it is hold the FN(function) key(lower left on keyboard close to the Ctrl and Alt key) and press on of the F1-F12 keys on top of keyboard.
You can try one combination at a time until it switches. Your FN key may have a Flying Windows icon and the F1-F12 key may have a TV icon on it.
Let me know if you get it working and please rate this solution.

When i try an open system restore the window appears blank, an my laptop doesnt no what the internet is when i try an open internet explorer it asks me what program to use, all this started after i ran i...


You might want to print this out:

1) Turn off your laptop.

2) Press the "on" button on your laptop, and *immediately* start tapping on the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring up a black screen with white text on it.

NOTE: You may get a message saying "keyboard error, press F1 to continue." If this happens, press F1 and then keep tapping on the F8 key.

NOTE: If the Windows screen comes up, turn off the computer and try again until you get to a black screen with different startup choices on it.

3) Once you have reached the startup choices screen, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight "safe mode." Press the Enter key. If you are asked to choose your operating system, just press Enter again.

This will start a lot of text scrolling on your screen. Just be patient. When it stops, you will see a login screen. Log in under your name (sometimes this is "owner").

4) You will now be logged in to you computer in Safe Mode. A message will pop up asking if you want to use Safe Mode or System Restore. Click on System Restore.

5) You should now have the option to undo your last System Restore. Choose this option and follow the instructions on your screen to get back to where you were before you tried to restore your laptop.

If you need further help after that, please reply with the name and model number of your laptop. For example, "Dell Inspiron 530," or "Compaq Presario 3000." Also let me know what version of Windows you are using, for example "XP" or "Vista."
