Computer gives option for F2 for setup or F12 Boot Selection

If I do not select one, it goes to enter password. If I enter a password (don't know what the password is), the computer goes to a screen that shows the following:
For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCi Fast Ethernet Controller v2.17 (051202)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

The screen cotinually repeats.

If you use ethernet, then your connection, possibly the cable, is not working.

IF you don't use the ethernet connection, and have no cable plugged in for ethernet, the warning is NORMAL.

I had this happen to me before with an IBM laptop. I bought a new hard drive, reinstalled a fresh OS, and had no more problems after that. I also went right to ibm website and did all the updates, as well as all the microsoft updates. So my same problem as your ended up being a bad hard drive. maybe check into that?.

SOURCE: wile I am trying to boot it up it goes in to a loop

Hello.

That error message usually refers to a hard disk failure. Your hard disk cable could be loose or faulty. Or, your hard drive would need to be replaced.

I'd suggest to check the cable and run your system's hardware diagnostics (often F2 or F12) when your system boots.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Computer does not boot up

Sounds like the computer cannot find your hard drive and is looking for other means to boot the machine. It first is looking for a network hard drive, then it is looking at the DVD. When that fails it is asking you to check the computer for hardware errors. Check to make sure the hard drive is seated in it's compartment. The DV6000 has an adapter that fits on the end of its SATA drive and sometimes that adapter can wiggle loose from the contacts. Just take the hard drive out and then re-seat it to the connector. In most cases it is either a loose connection or the hard drive has suffered a failure.

It is beacuse your Hard drive is not detected on the computer properly.
Try resetting BIOS.
If that doesnt work, Check whether your hard drive is good.

How do I unlock the Bios on an Acer ES-1 111M Laptop


To boot from a CD, DVD or USB device, make sure that the device has boot sequence priority over the hard drive.

BIOS Boot

BIOS (Basic Input Output Subsystem) is a programmable chip that controls how information is passed to various devices in the computer system. A typical method to access the BIOS settings screen is to press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the boot sequence.
BIOS settings allow you to run a boot sequence from a floppy drive, a hard drive, a CD-ROM drive or an external device. You may configure the order that your computer searches these physical devices for the boot sequence.
The first device in the order list has the first boot priority. For example, to boot from a CD-ROM drive instead of a hard drive, place the CD-ROM drive ahead of the hard drive in priority.
Before you set boot priority for a USB device, plug the device into a USB port.
To specify the boot sequence:
  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, a menu may appear.
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  5. To give a USB device boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:
    • Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    • Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    • Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
  6. Save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  7. The computer will restart with the changed settings.

Boot Priority Options

Some computer manufacturers allow you to select the device that contains the boot sequence from a special device selection menu. The example below uses a Dell system board.
To set boot priority using a device selection menu:
  1. When the computer starts to boot up, after the manufacturer's ID screen, press F12 several times. The device selection menu appears.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to select CD-ROM or

Got an Acer 4050 from ebay and it goes straight to enter boot password


can you click on f12 before it goes to boot password?
The F12 Boot Menu allows you to choose which device that you would like to boot the computer's Operating System from by pressing the F12 key during the computer's Power On Self Test, or POST process. Some notebook and netbook models have the F12 Boot Menu disabled by default.
If this sounds like your problem then try this:
If this sounds like
To enable the F12 Boot Menu:


  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Press the F2 key to enter computer's BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test, or POST, process while the Acer logo is being displayed.
  3. Press the Right Arrow key to select Main
  4. Select F12 Boot Menu
  5. Press the Enter key
  6. Select Enabled
  7. Press the Enter key
  8. Press the F10 key and then press the Enter key to save the changes and restart the computer.
Note: Not all Acer notebooks or netbooks have the F12 Boot Menu feature. Computers that do not have the F12 Boot Menu feature will not be able to enable the feature within the BIOS. I hope this works for you if not, then the problem is obviously not the boot menu. Go to Acer support for more help

You have a corrupt registry and it needs to be replaced.
Doing a System Restore will do this. Since you cannot run it from the hard drive, you will have to boot from a Windows DVD.

How do I enter setup when there is no option to enter


F2 is your bios setup, and F12 is the boot order selection, if you cannot access the two options there is no other way. That shows up when the Toshiba logo is visable. If your windows run properly I would not risk formatting the hard drive. But it might be worth contacting Toshiba, customer and technical support about the unusuall situation.

Hai my name is laman my lenovo laptop just haveasmall problem it's displays only press {f2} for set up press f12 for boot device selection & can not execute so any one please solve this problem


Pressing F2 is the shortcut key to enter in cmos setup or bios settings where you can setup interrupt request and the direct memory access and also changing system date and time. While the F12 key is a shortcut key where you can select a boot device which are the hard disk drive if it's loaded with the operating system like windows xp or windows 7 etc., and if you are going to install or reformat your computer select the cd/dvd room drive to be the boot device. Supposedly the computer will load after the F2 or F12 appears on your screen if you have the functional operating system. But if your computer still restarting and always appearing on your screen the said F2 and F12 keys that means it is required to be reformat your computer. But before that you try to tapping F8 key while turning on your computer and select safe mode and press enter, after loading and still restarting that is the time to format your computer but you must back up your data or files that you saved on your computer. Call a computer technician or IT that know how to back up and can format your computer. Have a nice day.

On start up a Intel screen apears saying press F2 to enter setup F12 to enter multiboot selection menu, When F2 is presses it says please wait but never enters set up pressing F12 makes no change


You will need to reset your CMOS. You can do this by either removing the battery from the board for about 20 minutes than replacing it. It will automatically throw you in to your F2 or F12 setup. Or look for a jumper near the CMOS. Sometimes depending on PC Brand, just holding down a keyboard button continously during boot up will give you a keyboard error and take you to Setup. If one of the above doesn't work, hit me back on this forum and I will provide more help.
