Re: my pc problem

Press F1 key is displayed for the mild error in the computer. If it is a CMOS battery problem or the hardware devices which is nt in use bt it is detected in BIOS settings then it displays. Plz check the CMOS battery and replace it.

Re: my pc problem

Your description is too vague. Please advise what error messages you get, what the screen says, what make and model of PC you have, what operating system you are using, what hardware or software changes you have made recently etc etc etc

Hi! Welcome to
Removed your power cable and drain power without any power. restart and keep on hitting f12 to get to the boot menu choose ODD then put the OS CD then press enter until its say press any key. If it did not work your other option is reboot and hit f1 or f2 to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

switch on your pc and then keep pressing F8, until a menu appears choose safe mode and see if the computer boots up. If it does boot up you can then remove whatever it was ,you installed to cause the problem if you dont know what it is, then click start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restor and select a time when you know for certain that your computer was running correctly. If this doesnt solve the problem then you will need to repair it using an original windows disc

It should also indicate which key to press to get into system configuration (usually Del, F1, or F2). Go through the settings and find "Shadow System BIOS" or something similar and set it to disabled.

BIOS Shadowing copies the system bios from ROM to RAM when the system starts, and is un-necessary in modern computers.
