Phoenix is the make of you BIOS chip which is controls access to the microprocessor and system buses. Its settings are held in the ROM using the system battery (the small circular one) on the mobo.

F2 will allow you to enter this BIOS setup menu if the battery is faulty then change this for a similar its normally a CR2305 or something similar.

You could try setting you BIOS to factory settings and pressing F10 to save and exit.

Hope this helps.

Setup is your BIOS settings, the basic input/output instructions to the computer. It regulates all that happens on the laptop. Phoenix is the maker or programing company of the BIOS which runs the system. Tap F2 when you see the screen that shows the laptop maker's name, then a BIOS screen will come up. The first thing I would do is go to the last page and set the laptop's default settings. Then hit F10 to save the settings and reboot the laptop.

Phoenix, is the brand of BIOS installed on the system. BIOS = Basic In Out System and is the imbedded software (also known as Firmware) of the motherboard that coordinates the communication of the hardware (Motherboard, drives, video card etc) with the operating system (Windows). The SETUP refers to the parts of the BIOS that can be configured by the user. (You can turn components on or off, and change various settings or see what componets are installed in the system.)

When i swicth on my lap top then my lap top hangd waht can i do


reboot while pressing ,which should send you into ROM BIOS SETUP.
Note that "" is the single key on your keyboard labeled F2, and may reside above the "2" key.

Execute any/all diagnostics you find, then, if it passes, try to boot into Windows SAFE MODE,
then if that works, let the system boot into full Windows.
