Bios utility

BIOS Setup utility?

Dell laptop?

Lot of information here.......let me see if I can sift through it.........

Post the model number in a Comment.
The model number can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

As soon as you turn your laptop on, watch for the Dell logo screen.
WATCH the bottom of the screen.
What key does it state to press, to - enter BIOS Setup?

Write it down.
If Windows loads let it load, and run a few minutes. Then turn the laptop off normally.

THIS time AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on that BIOS Setup key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

You may hear beeps. Those are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it. Ignore them.

This will get you into the BIOS Setup utility.

If Windows doesn't load, press the CTRL key, and ALT key, and DELete key, AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart your laptop, and start tapping on that enter BIOS Setup key.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

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


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:

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

I cannot boot from the cd rom to do a fresh install of windows xp onto the laptop (Toshiba Satellite 1805-S274 PC Notebook)

Most computers need to have the boot order reset in the Bios to enable booting from cd. The following should be the correct way to access the Bios setup for this model.

Starting with the system powered off (not in sleep/suspend or hibernate mode)-Start with the system powered off. Press the power button and then immediately press and hold the Esc key while the system runs the POST (Power On Self Test). When the POST finishes, a prompt will appear telling you to press the F1 key to enter BIOS Setup. At that time, press the F1 key to access the BIOS Setup program.

Once in the Bios setup, change the boot order to boot first from cd, then save changes and exit. You should then be able to run the cd install.

Setup utility

I think you are referring to the BIOS setup. The BIOS is the very first code that is ran after you trigger POWER, and controls all of the hardware in the PC, and without this 64k of code, your computer would not run. No display, no nothing. There have been some viruses known to infect the BIOS, the most famous being CIH, which formats the hard drive, empties the CMOS memory (also part of the BIOS, where settings such as time are stored) and re-flashes the BIOS, rendering the PC unusable. Luckily, this only infects Windows 9x machines with ATX motherboards.

Can i boot from usb


I'm sorry but the answer is no.

You only have floppy, hard drive and cd-rom options. With some Dell models the USB is seen as a secondary hard drive from within the BIOS so maybe (if your bios supports it) you can change boot order there.

Usually thats not the case so you mainly have to boot from the CD/DVD to install or run a DOS or linux command.

I had installed one software that was bios update after installation that software Hp pavillion dv2000 bios configuration had chage. how can i solve this problem now my laptop cant detect the harddrive. it...

Restart your laptop, and immediately press DELETE to enter BIOS setup. Select "Load BIOS Defaults". Navigate through the menus;
you should see "auto-detect disk-drive". Run that utility.
Save the updated BIOS settings, and exit from BIOS-setup.

If all else fails, take the computer to a qualified technician.
It's probably just a 10-minute "fix" for an expert.

Screen just stays blue when powered up.

press and hold F2 key while turn power on to see can run bios setup or not.
if bios setup showed means your operation system on your harddrive is missing.
good luck.
