Would like to know how you access the setup menu or BIOS


I believe that you want to press the F2 button as soon as you turn it on, and keep pressing it until the BIOS setup screen comes up, If F2 doesn't work then try F10

Emachince t3604 with vista wont boot just a blank screen tried to get bios screen safe mode etc. but nothing shows on the monitor. n e advice?


Make sure --- turn power off, leave off for 30 seconds. Power up again, holding the F2 key down. This WILL take your eMachines into Setup (BIOS). If it doesn't then your keyboard is most likely defective. If it does get you to setup, press F10 and Enter. Reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del and this time hold the F8 key down ... just hold it down till something happens, choose Start in Safe Mode with Network Support. Again if F8 doesn't work probly says Keyboard is bad. This is for whatever Operating System you are using.

The Start up screen for Compaq series computers is normal, that screen takes you into your BIOS mode. when the screen appears press F1, at the bottom of the screen it will say press F5 or one of those keys to install your Default Settings, Click Yes and Exit. That should do it. Good Luck.

It's possible the power cord is defective only giving enough power for a partial boot. I would try another power cord.
If it's not the powercord then it would definitely be the motherboard not taking the power and distributing it correctly and you would have to replace it.

What is the key combination to access BIOS on a Compaq please


mike,
Del key is the general key to enter most of BIOS, but some BIOS has F2 some F10 and few Esc
