SOURCE: Conflict between Promise Ultra133 and SATA RAID controller

Check that your RAID controller and onboard SATA controller aren't in a compatibility mode. You can put them in this mode while you have no SATA driver installed in Windows.

This tricks Windows into seeing the SATA drives as regular IDE drives. Your BIOS then has a spasm when it see's another IDE controller there, and just uses the card instead.

Make sure the SATA drivers are installed first, otherwise anything SATA will stop showing up. (and your Windows just won't boot if it's on a SATA disk and you take compatibility mode off) =-]

Toshiba sat c660d-1en bios bypass


if this is windows 8 it will bypass the bios entry option via what is called a fast startup. You have to do a full shutdown and then power on the Windows 8 Laptop to see the Bios option to press whatever key to enter bios.

As your question was vague I have guessed this is what you are having difficulty with. As I have come across this fascinating feature of Windows 8 and apparently Windows 10 also.

I'm trying to help a friend install


After "Fast Boot" has been enabled, you cannot access the BIOS setup during power on . The machine will bypass "Press F2 to access Setup Utiltiy and F12 for Boot Menu" prompt.
This is a bigger issue if the hard drive crashes and access to Windows is not possible OR

Fast Boot can be enabled or disabled in the BIOS setup, or in HW Setup under Windows.
If you have Fast Boot enabled and you want to get into the BIOS setup. Hold down the F2 key, then power on. That will get you into the BIOS setup Utility.
You can disable the Fast Boot Option here. You will need to disable Fast Boot if you want to use the F12 / Boot menu.

Bios speed slow fast karni hai


First of all, your computer must be completely powered down and turned off before starting this process. You won't be able to edit the BIOS in sleep mode or hybernation mode. Next, power on the PC and enter the system BIOS. How you enter the system BIOS screen will vary according to your computer's manufacturer. This usually involves a series of keystrokes. Which keys are used will depend on your system. Now that we are in the BIOS screen, we are ready to speed up Windows XP boot time. Find the Boot menu and select it using the arrow, Tab and Enter keys on your keyboard.In most systems, you'll find a Quick Boot option. Enabling this will skip common system self tests that occur automatically when the computer is powered up.
In the next step to speed up boot time, look for the Boot Device Priority option. You should change the first boot device to your hard drive. This will speed up boot time, but won't allow you to boot via a boot disk like CD or floppy. If you make this change, then need to boot from a disk later, you can re enter BIOS and change it back. Next, choose the option Exit and Save Changes and the computer will restart.
Always Remeber to do this process carefully because a wrong action will cause destruction and make your computer useless.

What is the video memory of a Compaq Presario SR5712F PC Desktop


Description---- Problems with video cards show up as intermittent system lockups when playing 3D games, small dots of color spattered across the Window desktop, the inability to run certain 3D games, and the inability to open Windows normally. All of these issues can occur because of video hardware or driver problems. Find an item below that matches your video need: For integrated video memory that is adjustable, use the following steps to change the amount of video memory (RAM) from the PC BIOS Setup:
  1. Turn on the PC.
  2. When the blue HP screen appears, press the F1 key. Entering Setup should appear on the screen.
  3. When BIOS Setup screen appears, use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced screen.
  4. Use the down Arrow key to select the video memory setting; for example; VGA RAM Size, integrated video, or On-Board Video Memory.
  5. Press the Enter key.
  6. Use the down Arrow key to select the desired amount of memory or memory setting that is listed and then press the Enter key. CAUTION: Do not select a DISABLED setting without a video card installed! Doing so can cause the monitor to go black until a video card is added or the BIOS is reset.
  7. Press the F10 key, and then press Enter to save changes and exit. The PC is set to use the new video memory setting.

NTLDR is missing


This problem may occur if the basic input/output system (BIOS) on your computer is outdated, or if one or more of the following Windows boot files are missing or damaged: Ntldr
Ntdetect.com
Boot.ini

So, verify whether the BIOS is up to date.

In this case, it's required to reinstall the Operating System as repairing this part may be a really tidious job.
