Bios not loading when hitting DEL

I'm trying to access the BIOS to change the device startp-up so I can do a fresh Windows Install from CD.

Upon powering the machine I get the "Press DEL to enter startup" message but it doesn't work. I have tried F1, F5, F8, F10, F11 and even a a second keyboard and still nothing. What can I do ?

Hi,

Have you tried using a PS/2 keyboard? Or the other way around, a USB keyboard.

Additionally you can try doing a reset on the motherboard by temporarily relocating the jumper on the CMOS reset pins (JP1 close to the Lithium battery) from 2-3 to 1-2 for a couple of seconds then back. Normally, once performed, the motherboard on the next boot will revert to default and auto request a CMOS setup. Alternately you can also temporarily remove the battery for about 15 minutes.

If the USB and/or PS/2 KB nor the CMOS reset does not allow you to enter the BIOS setup, perhaps you need to return the board for replacement since this is indicative of MB failure.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Im trying to change my hard disk but cnat reboot my pc with my pc using cd rom my cd rom is toshiba sd-r2312


You need to go into your bios and set your boot device priority. It's set to boot to the hard disk before the CD. You need to change that so the PC will try to boot to the CD first.
To access the Bios, you will need to it the key you are prompted to hit "to enter setup" You should see this while the machine is booting.
Typically you tap either F2 or Del to get into the bios. Once you fine the Boot device priority and change it, you will need to hit F10 to save your changes and exit.
If this does not fix your problem, you may have a problem with your cd drive. Hope this helps.

Check the BIOS ("del" key upon start-up or "F1, F2 or F10" depending on system to access the menu). Check for audio setting (may need to scroll through menu categories to see if onboard audio is enabled). If disabled, try to enable it by hit spacebar, left/right arrow key or + - keys to change setting. If it is an add-on sound card you may need to install or re-install the drivers and in this case the onboard audio should be disabled in BIOS.

Changing BIOS priority on toshiba satelite 5005-s504


as i recall, ntloader is software for the OS load, after hardware boot, so you already passed up your chance to enter bios, which you realize. i used to have a toshiba laptop, was it the delete key or F2 to enter BIOS? try delete, and make sure youre pressing it from restart like once a second as it's booting to make sure you hit it in the windows of time it's looking for key presses before it's time to load the operating system. you'll be fine. it's just unnerving to be locked out like that...

It's probably disabled in bios. Find out which key to hit during startup to enter bios (usually del or F2) and look for 'onboard devices' or something similar. Your soundcard will be in there.

Remember to save your settings as you exit bios. Drivers for the card should automatically install upon logging back into windows.

Hope this helps,

erch.
