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 (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

How should the BIOS be set up?

This is the recommended way to do it.Turn on your computer and press F2 to enter the system setup. If you have problems with the Bios you have to get a Bios upgrade by getting software from dell then you can do the following.Reset the boot sequence to boot first from the floppy drive or the CD drive (depending on whether your flash BIOS update is supplied on floppy disk or CD).Insert the flash BIOS update floppy disk or CD, and reboot the computer. The computer updates the BIOS and then automatically reboots. mmediately press F2 to enter the system setup program, and reset the boot sequence to the normal setting. Then exit the system setup program.

How can I change boot sequence in Compaq Evo N410c?

You need to access your BIOS configuration. 1. To do this, shutdown your computer and boot it by pressing the power button. 2. You need to hit F10 when the computer first powers up in order to get into BIOS (Note that the key is usually different for different computers. If F10 doesnt work, try F2, F12, Delete or F9. 3. Once in the BIOS, you should find the boot sequence option.
Hope this helps!

What does e1-00 mean

This is a possible fix. You need to enter the printer computer and do a reset on the MCU. Press # * C * in sequence within 7 seconds of starting. It should ask for a 2 digit number. Enter 14 and press the copy start button. Printer should recycle and clear the problem. You will need to press the CA button once it stops cycling. Good luck

Dell Dimension 5510

Normally you would set it up to boot from:
1. CD/DVD drive
2. Hard Drives

There may also be a floppy drive to add in whereever you want it.
This problem sound like some kind of drive controller or the drives are not being recognized in BIOS...check and make sure you see the hard drives when setting the boot order.

Found this drive in an old unit. Can I set jumpers to slave or secondary? No labels on it to show settings

presuming you are referring to a hard drive ,it depends on a few things , firstly when you removed this drive from the older system, was it alone or was there a second hdd presesnt, if the drive was alone ,chances are that it was a single standalone drive and is probably set as master or standalone,jumpers.gif
this is a good example of a jumper configuration on an older type [6 pin] ide interface hard drive, in my experience of these drives , to generalise ,
1 + 2 = master or single
3 + 4 = secondary
5 + 6 = cable select
if you follow this example and set the jumpers to 3 +4 ,on a working bootable system then you should be able to access the data from the other drive when your os has booted, if your system fails to boot check your boot sequence in the system bios is set to the correct drive , then restart the system, other than this, the best advice i would give is to experiment with differrent jumper shorts also try removing the jumper completely,
and always remember to turn the computer off ,unplug it , and earth yourself by touching the pcs case , every time you have to change anything within the pc,
i hope this has helped
please leave feedback if so
