Hi
To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST while the
computer logo is being displayed.
To set the boot sequence in the BIOS utility, activate the BIOS utility, then select Boot from the categories listed at the top of the screen.
You can then choose the order in which the BIOS seeks bootable media. For your purposes the optical drive needs to be the first option. Do remember that during the boot sequence there are only about 5 seconds where it will say "Press any key to boot from CD......" after which it will revert to booting from the hard drive.
If you go to this site,
Drivers and Manuals
you can choose your model from the options lists and can then download drivers and documents which you may need after your downgrade.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Where are computer settings on a Lenova desktop computer?


Could you please provide a little more info? What is the operation system you're running (ie, Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, Linux, etc), what settings are you looking for (BIOS settings (for example, maybe you want to change the default boot device from a hard drive to a DVD drive so the computer tries to boot off the DVD drive first), power saving settings, device settings, windows update settings), etc. Also, perhaps the model number of the Lenova would help depending on what settings you're actually looking for.

Toshiba Satellite L355D-S7815 re-soldered cmos battery onto mother board and re-set the bios, now I have the f2 and f12 option available, tried to boot cd/dvd drive with windows 8 disk and it will not


Go into the BIOS setting abd check it the BIOS detects the hard disk and CD/DVD drive.
If it detects these drives then go to the boot device order and select the CD as the first boot device then the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.

NEC laptop will not boot from disk or USB


just make sure ISO files or DVD you are using to boot with are actually bootable disc for OS ,as for USB booting ,you will need to turn on usb boot on the bios and software needs to be USB software.
and I am not talking about boot order that you have already selected.
check windows 8 software on anther machine and see if you can boot with it

My laptop doesn't boot my windows 7 DVD please help me


This problem can be happen if DVD ROM of laptop is not working or BIOS setting is not set for booting from DVD drive. If DVD ROM is not working then change it. Go to BIOS setting and choose first boot device as DVD ROM if it is BIOS setting problem. This can solve your problem. It is always good to buy licensed copy of OS and other software.

Thank you..

Lop top dosent boot to bios, after i attempt to up grade them


This normally happens when upgrading your operating system i.e. from windows xp upgrading to windows vista. But the problems is sometimes it can skip important things or maybe you skipped on something. A likely problem is it doesnt boot after bios because the booting order is incorrect. When you boot go to your bios. im not sure what computer you have so follow the guide on this site http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php and the reply to this with your booting order! ONLY DO UP TO STEP 3! then if not already selected change it to harddrive but remember what it was peviously just incase this wasnt the problem. When set to harddrive try and boot again and hopefully it will work. If not then i suggest phoning up the company and asking instead of sending it to the shop as it will cost alot and they will take your computer from you!
