How do I get into the BIOS setup for the travelpro 2500cx?
I can't find ANY reference or manual that gives the required key combination. I have tried many, many, many... and no luckl I can't even stop this thing from booting up (windows 2000). May the force be with you...its not with me....

Some Travelpro bags come with an external lock upon purchase included in the user information package with the user manual and the add-a-bag strap or hook. This external lock can be looped through the zipper openings to secure your bag. To set the lock to your combination, follow these steps.
External Travelpro Lock:
Unlock the mechanism by pulling up on the metal lock rod. The 3 dial combination must be set to (0-0-0) factory combination if new, or the existing combination if used to unlock.
Once released, rotate the lock rod to align with the notch of the dials, usually perpendicular to the long side, or about 90 degrees from its lock position.
Select a new 3 digit combination.
Press down the lock rod all the way and hold in that position while you turn the dials to reflect your new combination. NOTE**The lock rod must be held down all the way until you have your 3 digit combination in place, otherwise an unknown combination will be set while you adjust the dials.**
Once your new combination is in place, release the lock rod. This sets the new combination.
Return the lock rod back to the locking position and double check that your new combination does lock and unlock.
Scramble the dials in order to keep your luggage safe and secure.
Mostly you wil have to adjust the BIOS of the computer to boot from USB or DVD media.
When booting most computers mention the button(s) to press to get into BIOS:
--A Function key (such as F1, F2, or F3)
--The Esc key
--The Delete key
On some PCs, entering the BIOS may require pressing another key or a combination of keys. Keep your eyes open for an on-screen message that says something like: --'Press F1 to enter setup'
--'BIOS settings: Esc'
--'Setup = Del'
--'System configuration: F2'
If you don't catch it the first time, simply try again. Your computer's documentation may also tell you which key to press. 3. When you know the right key, start the computer again and press the key when the first screen pops up: You may hear a confirmation beep or see a new message. If you timed it correctly, you'll be in the BIOS within a few seconds.
Boot into your BIOS setup to see if there is an additional control to give the option. Check your manual for a key combination (Fn + F3 etc.) to switch between screens. Download the latest video driver package from the chip mfg (Intel, Nvidia, ATI-AMD), it will detect and let you control the additional monitor and even turm the display upside down!
These controls are located in a part of the system called "BIOS Settings", "BIOS Menu", "CMOS settings", "CMOS setup" or some similar variation. This should be covered in your user manual.
You usually enter "BIOS Settings" menu by pressing a specific key or keys during the beginning of the boot-up process. The specific key(s) to press are usually mentioned in a corner of the display as the system boots. They should also be in the manual. It is sometimes the "F2" key, or "Del", or a combination like "Ctrl+S" keys.
Once you've entered the menu, you'll see it provides many parameter settings organized in "pages". Basically, walk through the on-screen prompts until you see the settings having to do with cacheing and shadowing.
Every system and even current BIOS version has a different way to present these data, so we generally can't give you a specific keystroke-by-keystroke set of instructions. Again, your user manual should detail this information.
If you don't have a current user-manual, you should be able to go to the motherboard or system manufacturer's website to download a copy. It will usually be in .pdf format which will (in order to be able to read it) require a free .pdf reading application like Adobe Reader or Foxit.
The computer should show you a key to hit to enter the setup. Nomally the keys may be F2, F10, DEL, or some other key. If your computer does not even give you any display, then you can't enter setup--it's failing the POST which means it won't work at all. In a laptop, you could take it apart far enough to find the CMOS battery and disconnect it to reset the CMOS, but I'm thinking you might have a hardware problem here--like maybe a motherboard. One thing you can do is unplug it, remove the battery, then reinstall the battery, plug it in and try again. In a laptop, anything further will require dissembling the case.
Go into the BIOS setup to reset the password. Start by rebooting the system. Before the system starts loading the operating system, the computer will give an opportunity to enter the BIOS setup utility. Usually a screen appears saying to press a key to enter the setup utility; i.e. "Hit DEL to enter Setup". You have to know what key the computer is looking for to get to Setup. DEL in used on the a lot of ASUS machines but you may that to refer to a manual or read the screen just before the operating systems to load. Once you get in, look for something related to security settings. Once it is found under the boot tab. Here is where you can reset the motherboard password. Hope this helps.
According to the laptop's quick guide this is how you enable and disable your wireless:
Radio components: Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth/UMTS
The installation of a wireless LAN module not approved by Fujitsu
Siemens Computers GmbH voids the permits issued for this device
(see chapter "Technical data", Page 22).
Depending on the device variant, wireless LAN, Bluetooth and/or UMTS may be integrated in your notebook.
On delivery, WLAN components are switched on, Bluetooth components off.
Switching the radio components on and off
Start the WirelessSelector using the key combination Fn + F1 .
The WirelessSelector enables you to switch the radio components activated in
BIOS Setup on and off individually.
BUWlMuireTtlSeososthLAN Press the key combination Fn + F1 to start the WirelessSelector.
The radio component indicator will be illuminated when one or more
radio components is switched on.
If you switch off the radio components, the Bluetooth module, UMTS and
wireless LAN transmission unit (antenna) will also be switched off.
You can enable or disable the radio components individually.
BIOS Setup allows you to specify which radio components can be switched on
and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .
Only those components that have been activated in BIOS Setup can be switched on and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .
Conversely, components that are deactivated in BIOS setup cannot be controlled using the key combination.
You can also activate and deactivate the radio components individually
in the BIOS Setup. You must have assigned the supervisor password in
order for this function to be available.
Pay attention to the additional safety notes for devices with radio
components provided in the "Safety" manual.
Details on using Wireless LAN can be found in the online help system
included in the Wireless LAN software.
You can find more information on how to use Bluetooth on the CD you
received with your Bluetooth software.
