Change boot order in bios on a client pro 385

Hi Jennifer. According to my research, these are Intel based PC's When you switch the PC on, keep tapping the 'Del' key to get into the BIOS. If it goes into windows, just restart the PC and try again - if the Del key doesn't work, try tapping F2 as that is also used by some manufacturers to get into the BIOS.
Once in the BIOS, just go through the menus until you find the boot priorities screen and make the necessary adjustments. Hope this helps

My acer netbook starts and you can see the screen works but couple seconds later it just turns black. Can anyone tell me why its doing that?


It appears that Operating system is failing to load. Try the steps below:

1. Turn Off the computer
2. As soon as you power button to turn ON the computer keep on tapping the F8 key, it will boot to Advance boot menu,
3. Select Safemode with the help of Down arrow keys and hit Enter
4. If the computer is booting to Safemode then there is no hardware failure, you can try full system restore.

To do a full system restore, please follow the below mentioned steps:
1. Turn Off the computer
2. As soon as you hit the power button keep on holding the Alt key and keep on tapping the F10 key ie Alt+F10
3. It will boot to Acer Recovery Console
4. Select Full System restore and follow the on screen instruction

NOTE: This is erase everything from the computer including any data; pictures or music

Thanks and regards,

I want to wipe my hard drive completely, and i downloaded dariks nuke and boot. but i dont know how to open my bios and do it. so how would i go about opening my bios? i own a dell inspiron 1525

To get in to bios you have to reboot and once screen turns black keep on pressing F2 key but dont hold it down but tap it and it will bring you in to bios menu. Some dell's use "Del" (delete) key so if this is the case just do same thing instead of tapping F2 just keep on tapping "Del" key. This will take you into bios. If this daris nuke does not work just put in your windows cd and reboot and on black screen just keep on tapping key F12 and this will ether give you boot menu to choose form and you need to choose cd or dvd rom or sometimes it will go in to it right away and it will say "press any key to boot from a cd-rom" so you can press any key on keyboard (like space bar) and then choose option to install windows and not repair, choose delete partition which is usually like couple screens(one is letter L and one is just delete) and then choose install windows and choose quick or normal format. Once formatting is done it will start the new install. Good luck.

How do i get my master system disk to work on my new hard drive

You will need to put the disk in - and then boot the pc.
look for a notice that to start the machine using the cd rom or DISK drive to push the space bar or enter key or the famous any key.
IF this doesn't work - you will need to enter the bios - and set the pc to boot first to the cd rom drive.
start the pc - and tap the DELETE key - until the bios screen appears - - wait awhile for this- - - then select the BOOT - choice and then select [ instructions will be at the bottom of the screen] the first boot drive to be CD-ROM - DVD - --
click F10 and reboot - again looking for the notice I put above.

My computer froze during shut down, so I turned it off using the power button. When I start it up It gives me the options of starting normally, Last known good configuration, safe mode safe mode with...

Try go into BIOS by hitting the DEL key or F1 or F2 as you start and go to save Cmos config. then reboot.
The other approach is Last known Good config is the best. This can be brought up after presing power button then by tapping F8 till screen apears.. Select Last known Good Config

Disc failure 0 press F1 to continue

He has accessed the bios and change the boot setting devices by enabling the floppy drive which you do not have.

Go Bios (F1 or F2) on first screen. and select load default setting

Also go to Boot Options and make sure 1st boot is the HDD not FDD or removable disk

Also in any menu mention of Floppy Disk make sure it is set to not installed or disabled.

keep me posted
