After turn on the computer (DELL OPTIPLEX GX240) it stoped on BIOS revision


Seems to be an internal hardware problem and probably there is an easy solution to your problem.

  1. Open your case/cabinet.
  2. Disconnect the battery plugged on motherboard. (probably its size is similar to a coin)
  3. Disconnect SATA cables. (optional)
  4. Plug everything back in.
  5. Restart your computer.
Disconnecting the battery/cell actually resets the BiOS, making it easier to get rid of a few BiOS problems.
P.S. : You can take your RAM out. Plug one out (If you have two RAM Chips) or simply change-exchange their location.
If this doesn't work, it is recommended that you visit a service shop.

Hi i have an intel DG31PR M/B and it sticks before entering bios.I can only see the intel background and when it asks me to press F2 it does nothing.After several tests i entered the bios menu by changing...


Try reseating your memory dimms in the motherboard.
pop out the battery for the bios and boot the machine minus the battery. The machine should boot but bios changes wont be saved. If it works then reseat the battery again.
Good Luck

Lost bios password which was the serial and dont have it is there a way to bypass


Hello

First, remove the case to look at the motherboard, so we can try resetting the CMOS battery. This battery looks a shiny little disk the size of a nickel. Pry the battery free gently, and reinsert the battery after 10 minutes. If this worked and you don't see the password prompt, you don't need any more steps; the problem is fixed. In my experience, two or more additional steps might be necessary depending on the make of the BIOS. Unfortunately, they don't all respond to the same tricks.

Next, now that the case is already removed, locate the jumpers near the edge of the board or near the CPU or the CMOS battery. Once located, find the label that will say clear CMOS, or clear password, etc. Place the jumper over the pins and boot. If this works, no more steps are needed. If it doesn't work, read on.

The third step to try is to enter a password. When you receive the password prompt, try one of the following passwords. If you have an Award BIOS, try these; AWARD PW, ALFAROME, or _award. If you have Phoenix BIOS try, CMOS, PHOENIX, or BIOS.

If none of these things have worked, as a last resort, try a software utility that resets system passwords. These utilities can be found online.

How to change cmos battery . or at least I presume its that. POST reports time error each boot despite resetting


You are correct, the BIOS battery is flat and needs to be replaces.
The BIOS battery maybe behind one of the panels on the bottom of the laptop or it maybe under the keyboard. The most common BIOS batteries in laptops are button 3v lithium batteries. You need to locate, remove to identify the type and size of the battery.

When I turn my computer on it says internal battery low, but its a desktop, it doesn't have a battery does it? Then it moves to a black screen and stays there. What's wrong with it? How do I fix it?


It has internal CMOs battery .It is Round shape, size of Us "quarter" coin, located on motheboard.
Try changing that. If that is weak, you might loose your BIOs setting and computer may not boot.

Bios password forgotten on toshiba 2180cdt please help


Remove the battery, open the chassis and locate the internal backup battery (size of a small coin), disconnect it and let it stay disconnected for 24-48 hours.
Reassemble and you are ready to go!

TECHNICAL SUPPORT


One of three ways, usually;

1) Unplug the power, remove the battery, hold the power button on for a good 10 seconds. Plug the battery in and test.

2) Open the laptop up and locate the CMOS battery. It'll be a small lithium battery... similar to those in watches. Remove battery for 10 seconds, put it back in, and test.

3) Use a BIOS cracking utility... this might very well break your laptop completely, and I can't recommend any utility that will definitely work. This is a last resort. =-]
