SOURCE: pc hang up at f2 after bios update

Try downgrading the BIOS to a previous version then load setup defaults. After that update it again with the latest BIOS version. If it does the same thing then the bios package that you downloaded could be corrupt, you may need to download it from a different location.

What is the model of your intel motherboard?


Thanks

SOURCE: Bootup Problem of Dell PE6650

Your NVRAM was corrupted (probably by a dead CMOS battery) or your hardware configuration has cnaged (deah boot disk, etc). Enter setup to see if the date/time has reverted to a previous date. If so, the CMOS battery needs to be replaced and the BIOS reconfigured for the server. Otherwise, check to ensure that your disk configuration is correct. If the battery is not dead and your disk configuration is incorrect, you may have a bad hard disk.

SOURCE: I did BIOS flash update on my ASUS P5WD2 Premium

Install the BIOS Flash update, one by one. Like for example 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0.
And if still the problem consist. I think its not your BIOS problem.
Clear the BIOS by disable the JUMPER Setting.
And one last thing change the LITHIUM BATTERY(CR2032) a new one.

If you got the problem again, put a comment so that we can easy understand what is the problem with your MB.

If i am helpful, please rate me.
Thank you very much.

How do I go to BIOS?


You can enter BIOS setup or UEFI firmware via traditional method: Boot the PC, while the firmware starts to run, press F2/F1(Fn+F1 or Fn+F2). However, computer boots fast, maybe you often miss the trick to press F2/F1(Fn+F1 or Fn+F2). You can enter UEFI firmware from windows 8 or 8.1.

Please see attached photo, this is what's


what are you trying to do ?
a bit more information might be able to help you.
IE: what are you doing when this (pop up) occurs ?
and why are striking the F1 or F2 keys ?

Computer keyboards contain keys that, when pressed on their own or in conjunction with another key, provide shortcuts to performing functions, saving time and keystrokes.
On most keyboards, these are the function, or "F," keys that run along the top of the keyboard. "F1" and "F2" are members of this group.
F1 Function Key

Pressing the "F1" function key while you are in an application will bring up the application's help file.
Pressing it when you are not in Windows Explorer or on the desktop produces the "Windows Help" file.
If you are in an application and press the "F1" button along with the Windows button, you will get the "Windows Help" file.

F1 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F1" can be pressed with other keys to gain a variety of results and functions.
Press "F1" and the "Shift" key to start context sensitive help, or help for the application.
Use the "F1" key with "Alt" to go to the next field in an application.
Press "F1," "Shift" and "Alt" at the same time to return to the previous field in an application.
To display the Microsoft system information, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F1" at the same time.

F2 Function Key Clicking on an icon on your desktop and pressing the "F2" function key will put the icon into rename mode in the same way as right-clicking on the icon and scrolling to "Rename."
F2 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F2" when pressed with other keys combines functions commonly found in the application "File" and "Edit" menus.
To copy selected text, highlight the text and press "Shift" with "F2."
To view a print preview of a document, press "Ctrl" with "F2" when in a document.
To save a document, press "Alt," "Shift" and "F2 together when in the application.
To choose the open file command, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F2."

My ASUS Eee PC 1005HA turned off by itself then when I turn it on again, a screen come up and said "press F2 or tab" but when i press each of them, nothing's happened. How can I fix that?


Hi I have almost the same problem as ame_91_ok with my Asus Eee Pc 1005Ha. It suddenly shut down a few days ago and ever since that time it boots the bios screen where you have to press F1 to enter setup or F2 to load with the default settings. If I press F1 I enter the bios setup and if I press F2 it's boots fine after that and it seems to work normally. Still I'd like to know what the problem is and if I can fix it before it might get worse. I don't know anything about bios settings or anything like that so I could really use some expert advise. Already tried updating my bios, I have the latest bios version now but that didn't fix the booting problem.

My acer 5100 laptop will not boot. I get a mesage "hard failure may be imminent, press F1 and continue" When I press F1 the cursor blinks at top left of screen and does nothing else.


I have one of these! also did you change your operating system? If not when it boots press F2 it will take you to the bios. In this you will see if your hard drive is being recognized. Let me know what happens and I will try to assist you further. Take care.
