L500 starts in Phoenix Secure Core Tiano Setup. What is this and why doesn't it start in safe mode when I press F8?


Sounds like the bios software. The bios is a configuration utility that basically tells the internal components how to work together. If the bios is all you can get to come up either changes have been made to the bios and your computer doesn't recognize your hard drive or your hard drive has in fact died. Which is most common.

Booting into bios is typically an indication that something has gone out be it the hard drive or ram memory or just something on the motherboard itself.

I would imagine there are a handful of YouTube videos that can guide you through bios and how to use it to diagnose what exactly is wrong or help you find the right settings too get everything running again. Good luck!

NEC laptop stuck in Phoenix BIOS Setup Utility


While in the BIOS setup utility, go through the tabs/menus looking for BOOT sequence. Configure the laptop to boot from CD-Drive before any other drive. Have the installation CD in drive.Save the changes made to the BIOS configuration, and exit the BIOS. Reboot.
If the installation medium itself does not have a problem, you should be able to boot from it and have the opportunity to install the operating system.

How do I reset the bios cause when I enter the setup wont let me click on it


When you go into BIOS Setup Hector, you can no longer use your mouse

You have to use the Keyboard

When you go into BIOS Setup you are automatically in the Main menu

To go on..........
There are 3 main BIOS manufacturers. Some smaller ones too, but doubt they wrote a BIOS program for your laptop.

Phoenix, Award, and AMI.
Award merged with Phoenix now.

There are also different versions produced by EACH BIOS manufacturer.
Therefore I cannot just start guiding you, without knowing.

Some examples however......

This style has the menu's across the Top.
One example - Main / Advanced / Security / Power/ Boot / Exit

Use the Left Arrow key to highlight the menu you want, then press the Enter key.
The navigation guide is at the bottom, and to the Right.
DOES NOT state navigation guide.

Tells you how to navigate around in BIOS, and how to make changes, and Save Changes.

Same thing for a BIOS Setup example, that has the menu's listed i n an order.

Standard BIOS Features (Standard CMOS Features)
Advanced BIOS Features
Integrated Peripherals
Power Management Setup
PnP/PCI Configuration
Etc.

Use the Down Arrow to highlight the menu you want, then press the Enter key.
The navigation guide at the bottom, tells you the key to press, to make changes.
THEN Save Changes.

IF you do Not Save Changes, it will be like you have done nothing at all.
It's because you HAVE done nothing at all. Just looked around, unless you save changes.

[Usually the Page Up or Page Down key; or the Minus ( - )
or Plus ( + ) key; is to make changes.
Change Value ]

You may see F12 to save changes, or a Y/N, or Yes/No

The Y is just shown as an upper case Y for clarity. Press the lower case y.
Then press the Enter key.

If everything goes bad:
Look at the navigation guide at the bottom, in BIOS Setup.
You will see a key listed to press, that is Load Default Settings.
Usually an F6, but don't quote me on that.

You made a boo-boo in BIOS Setup?
Go back into BIOS Setup. Find the Load Default Settings key.
Press it, then the Enter key.
Now you are back to square 1.

The BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into your computer's BIOS (Basic Input/Output System).


Your computer is already properly configured and optimized, and you do not need to run this utility.


However,if you encounter configuration problems, you may need to run Setup.


To activate the BIOS Utility, press

m

during POST (when "Press <F2> to enter Setup" message is promptedon the bottom of screen).

The setup screen displays BIOS as follows:Navigating the BIOS UtilityDuring setup,all Fn function keys and power saving functions are disabled.

There are five menu options:


Main, Advanced, Security, Boot and Exit.Follow these instructions:


To choose a menu, use the cursor left/right keys (zx).


To choose a parameter, use the cursor up/down keys (wy).


To change the value of a parameter, press p or q



Press

^

while you are in any of the menu options to go to the Exit menu.


In any menu, you can load default settings by pressing t

You can also press u

to save any changes made and exit the BIOS Setup Utility.


hope this helps

Boot sequence for emachine M6811


As SOON as you press the Power On button, start tapping on the DELete key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

You may hear beeps. This is a Stuck Key Error Beep. (Or beeps)
Ignore the beeps.

You will now be in the BIOS Setup utility.

The BIOS program is made by Phoenix.
It is Version NSF03.P0
Release date - 07/28/2004

http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=2170#specs

Scroll the page down a little, until you come to the bold heading -
EMachines Desktop Replacement Notebook Specs

Scroll down until you see the sub-heading - Detailed specs
Left-click on - Click here to See appendix for detailed specs
Now look under the bold heading - DMI, and [ BIOS ]


When you are in the BIOS Setup utility, you CANNOT use your mouse
anymore. You have to use your Keyboard.

At the top of the BIOS Setup utility you will see headings;
Main, Advanced, Security, Power, Boot, and Exit.

The BIOS Setup utility automatically opens to the Main screen.

Use the Right Arrow key, and stop on the - Boot - tab

What is listed is a Boot Order.
In the list of the Boot Order are Boot Devices.

What is at the TOP is the first boot device the laptop will boot from.

Should be;
1) CD-ROM Drive
2) Removable Devices
3) Hard Drive
4) Network

Having CD-ROM Drive at the top allows you to install a different Operating System, that the laptop did not have from the factory.

ALSO; Windows DOES NOT like to be written over, with a lesser operating system, or the SAME version of operating system.

Examples;
Trying to install Windows 98SE, on a Windows computer that has Windows XP on it.

Trying to install Windows XP, on a Windows computer that has Windows XP already on it.

Using CD-ROM Drive as the first boot device, will allow you to install what you wish.

[ Doesn't work for installing Windows XP over Windows Vista. There is a special procedure ]

Dropped laptop today, switched it on and it starts up, but comes up with black screen with following message: Boot from AHCI CD Rom: operating system not found But before that screen comes up...


It sounds like you might have damaged your HDD when you dropped it. It's saying that the operating system isn't found, and it's trying to boot from your CD ROM. Either that or you might have left a disk in the CD drive, I'm guessing that is unlikely but worth checking maybe. By pressing F2 at start up and going into your BIOS (the Phoenix SecureCore Setup you talked about) Without changing any settings look through it until you find the HDD, or the BOOT options, if it lists a HDD don't get excited as it should be there even if it was damaged and is now unusable. Did you have your laptop on Hibernate, they say to shut them down if your transporting. Since when they are off they park the HDD, but when they are in Hibernate the HDD really isn't off it's on stand by. Making it easy to damage since the HDD is ready to read or write at the click of a button.

I need to install an operating system on a Samsung q1 ultra


Suggest you use an external DVD drive, and put your installation disk in it. Then access the BIOS Setup utility.

In BIOS Setup, find the Boot Order menu. (Generally, along the top headings of the main menu, in BIOS Setup, or located in Advanced BIOS Settings) Set the first boot device to be CDROM. Be sure to Save your change.
This way the handheld, will boot from the installation disk, in your external DVD drive.

Should you be trying to downgrade from Vista to XP, you have to change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM. If not, Vista won't let you overwrite it.
Vista is an upgrade over XP.

Computer freezes when trying to detect S-Ata drive


Hi Eamon, download Samsungs drive setup utility, tools from Samsungs web site. Creat a bootable floppy drive setup disk or a CD bootable disk.
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/ES_Tool.html
Enable the SMART function using the setup software.
If you are going to use the Samsung drive as the primary master drive as the new C:\ you will need to enter the bios & set the Hard Disk Boot Priority, page 30 in you're manual to see the Samsung drive.
Connect only the Samsung into the system. Boot the system & use Samsung's software to setup the drive & format.
Disconnect any other hard disk drives that may have windows installed in it.
