The easiest way to reset the bios for this machine is to turn the laptop over and remove the RAM. Once the RAM is out of the machine, plug it in and power it up, you should hear some beeping. If you hear the beeping then you have successfully flashed the BIOs. Plug the RAM back in and turn the computer back on, you'll be right to go =)

Hello Omid,
I appears that a installation of Ubuntu may have failed. If this is the case this needs to be re-posted in a different area. If this is not what happened then to reset the BIOS. This procedure is based on the notebook booting the system as it should (e.g. you hear the sound of the operatng system boot). First press F2 on startup to get in the BIOS. Now do the following key presses to do a factory reset of the BIOS: left, 4x down, 4x , press the enter key. Now the system shuts down. Reboot it and there should me no blank screen anymore. If there is further problems please post them here. Hope that this helps.

SOURCE: problem in installing new operating system on lenovo T61

I ran into the same problem when installing Windows XP SP2. This is what you do.. 1. Go into the BIOS (F1 during startup). 2. Go to the SATA menu. 3. Change the setting to compatiablty. You should be able to install the operation now. After the installtion of the base os, you should go to lenovo website to download the drivers and follow the instructions there.

If you have a partition and its set active..you should be able to procede from there. If you continue to egt the error message.. you need to verify the part5ition is valid and active. formatted would help as well..

Format aspire4736z


Hi there.

To format you will need:
Operating Systems (OS) CD/DVD

Steps:
1) Enter the BIOS when the laptop boots by pressing the Delete key repeatedly.
2) Once the BIOS is open locate the boot disk priority and set prioity 1 to the CD/DVD drive, set priority 2 to the laptop's hard drive.
3) Save changes to the BIOS and exit. The system should now reboot.
4) Insert your OS CD/DVD.
5) Press Enter when the system asks you if you want to boot from the CD/DVD.
6) The OS setup should now start, the first thing it will ask you to do is format your hard drive.
7) After you drive is formatted you can either continue with the setup and install a fresh copy of the OS or you can exit leaving the main drive clean.

Step 4) Insert your operating system install disk into your CD/DVD drive.

I have a gateway 500xl that the previous owner reformatted the harddrive wiping the xp operating system. I've upgraded the ram but without an op system I cannot turn the machine on. I need to install...


Hi there.

For this process you will need:
1) The hard drive you want the operating system on.
2) The operating system disk (Windows, Linux, etc, depending on your os choice)
3) A CD/DVD drive.

Firstly you will need to enter the BIOS on startup by pressing the Delete key repeatedly as your system starts up. In the BIOS you need to locate the boot disk priority section. You need to set priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the hard drive you wish to install the operating system to. Once this is done save changes to the BIOS and exit. Your system should now restart and on boot-up it should display a message "Insert bootable disk" or something like that. This is where you put in the operating systems install disk into your CD/DVD drive. Once it is in restart your system. Now your PC should boot up and ask you to press "Enter" to boot form the CD/DVD. Press enter to proceed. The setup should now begin, just follow the steps given by the setup wizard. Once the setup is finished and your PC reboots and on startup you get the same message about pressing "Enter" to begin setup just do nothing. Your PC should then switch automatically to your newly installed operating system and boot into it. Once your PC is fully booted into your operating system of choice remove the setup disk.

Is the hard drive seen in the system bios?Once you upgraded the hard drive did you re-install the operating system.Remember this,,, if the operating system on the drive belonged to another system you will encounter issues when the bios and the new hard drive starts to interact resulting .If you have data on this drive make a back up so you may restore it once the new operating system is installed.
Good luck
