What about removing the hard drive from the laptop and put it into sata box, to be USB external drive.
And then get out your important data, and format the hard disk.

and try again to boot???

If it doesn't work , try to replace the memory it might be the problem with the memory.

SOURCE: Blank screen upon startup

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

if your sure the screen is not the problem then unfortunatly your looking at a motherboard issue and this proves sort of costly sometimes i know its a real pain but you can have someone repair it for you or simply buy another motherboard and have it installed im sorry but that is all you can do at this point! i hope this helps!

Welcome to Fixya

Make sure first that there are no devices plug in to the usb when you boot up the computer. Check if the harddrive is being detected by the computer. Press F2 to go to BIOS menu and see if the computer can detect you harddrive. It should be under the main menu and will say below harddrive. It should give you infromation of the harddrive. If there is no information of the harddrive then the problem there is the harddrive already.

Please reply to this email for any update.

Thank you for using Fixya!

How do I access the BIOS settings for the P5LP-LE motherboard. The startup key says to press F1, but pressing F1 does nothing.


The instructions say:
"Hold down the F1 key during the startup process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter/reset any custom BIOS settings." I would also try hitting the F1 key multiple times from the very turn on of the computer because the key may have to register at some point after turning on.

Try clearing the CMOS settings as explained on this page, it should clear out any passwords and will set the BIOS settings back to factory settings.

HP and Compaq Desktop PCs Motherboard Specifications P5LP LE Lithium

As for "The CPU fan runs normally on boot, but as soon as the Windows flash screen comes up, the CPU fan slows way down."
This is quite normal. On start-up the temperature of the CPU is not being read, when the flash screen comes up just happens to be the same time that the computer recognizes that the CPU is cold and doesn't need to be cooled.

On the "Then the installation program starts running and the CPU Fan speed starts fluctuating wildly from slow to extremely fast."
This could be normal as when files are read from a DVD the CPU doesn't work hard, but when it unpacks the files or does calculations it does work hard. Or it could be that the thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink is not correct. Either dry , not making contact, or even too much. If the heat is not being transferred that would also explain the shut-down.

Are you able to interrupt the startup sequence by pressed F8 when it starts? You may need the windows 7 boot disk to repair your installation, do you have one on hand?

Clear cmos how to;'?


What type of computer and motherboard ?????
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Power down the system and disconnect the power cord.
Wear an anti-static wrist strap to avoid electrostatic discharge damage to the Asus motherboard or CMOS chip or other sensitive components.

Remove the cover and locate the CMOS coin cell battery and remove it from the system by gently pushing on the retaining clip and popping the battery out although on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

Discharge the CMOS chip by leaving the battery out of the system for up to an hour, depending upon the particular chip and motherboard combination.

Replace the battery and replace the cover on the system. Connect the power cord and boot the computer.

Save changes if prompted by the BIOS for system memory, drives detected, and other settings, and set the date and time if prompted at this time, or alternately set the date and time when the operating system finishes loading.
If your computer does not have a CMOS battery or you're unable to find it you'll need to do a hard reset on the CMOS using a jumper or dip switch on the motherboard.Information on finding these can be found through your computer or motherboard documentation.
or you might set failsafe or optimised defaults
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 defaultsor load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Change boot cd rom bios300


Your IBM 300 series desktop computer is normally set to boot its operating system directly from the installed hard disk drive.
There are some cases where you may want to boot from a different device, such as loading from the floppy drive to install a new operating system.
In order to change the boot order on the IBM computer you need to access the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) menu.

Close any applications that are still running.
Turn off the IBM 300PI computer and then turn it back on again.
Tap the "F1" key when the "Configuration/Setup Utility" prompt appears at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the down arrow key four times to highlight the "Start Options" entry.


Press the Enter key.
Highlight the "Startup Sequence" entry and then press Enter again.

Scroll down and highlight "First Startup Device."
Press Enter. Scroll through the list of available boot order devices.
Highlight the device you want to use, such as "CD Drive" or "Floppy Drive," and press Enter.

Press the "Escape" key twice.
Highlight "Save Settings" and then tap Enter.
Power off the IBM computer and then power it back on.

I have IBM P3 and i want to change win xp but its not booting pliz help me and it doen't give me option of booting


Turn the computer on. Keep your eyes glued to the bottom of the monitor screen. This usually comes by fast, so keep your eyes peeled.

When the computer manufacturer logo screen comes up, look for the -> enter CMOS Setup, or enter BIOS Setup, <- key to press.

Write it down.
If Windows loads on your computer, allow it to load, and run for a few minutes.
Turn the computer off normally.
WAIT 20 seconds, or so; then turn the computer back on.

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the enter BIOS Setup key. (Or enter CMOS key)
Tap in 2 second intervals.

If you hear beeps ignore them. They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it.

Once you get into BIOS. look for Boot Options.
In Boot Options set the first boot device to CDROM.

P4P800 - VM BIOS Version 1012 to Upgrade 1018 Now CMOS can't save Date & Time


I'm sorry to have to say this but your CMOS battery connection is bad. There is basically nothing you can do other than replace the whole motherboard if it is too much of a problem.

One of my many computers is like this as well. I'm lucky in that as long as I leave that computer plugged in (it doesn't need to be turned on just plugged in), the CMOS won't reset its self. If you aren't that lucky then I would seek out a replacement motherboard.

I assume Dban worked.....worked so well I am froze at there very first screen {biostar mobo logo} and cant get any farther to load OS or even to the CMOS to even check settings......help pls


Once the drive is wiped that's about as far as one can get because there is no longer an OS to load. Power down the computer. Then turn it back on while hitting the "del" key repeatedly. If del doesn't work try the "F" keys, usually F2. Once in the BIOS, set the boot order for the cd/dvd drive to boot first. Exit using F10 to save. Insert your CD/DVD that has your operating system in the drive and reboot to install the new OS.

If you still can't get into the BIOS, power down the computer, unplug the power cord, remove the side panel and then remove the CMOS battery for 3 or 4 minutes. Put the battery back in and repeat the above instructions.
