Does not display setup or boot menu


When I start my machine it seems to go through the POST ok, displays the prompts for setup (del), boot menu (f11), network boot (f12) etc. It also detects the hard drives. However even if I press del or f11 during start up it never actually displays the setup or boot menus.
This means I can't boot off of the CD - in fact nothing happens at all after the hard drives and cd rom drives etc are discovered.
The system has been working perfectly for year and has just started exhibiting this problem. I've never had this before (ie previously f11 or del produced the correct menu).
And of course the machine doesn't boot the operating system.

So I'm stuck: I can't display the setup or boot menu.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Re: Does not display setup or boot menu

R u kidding me? Clean the dust off of your motherboard is the best you can come up with? It's CMOS moron and you shouldn't lightly suggest EVER clearing it unless you are positive it will work. Stop annoying people.

Press DEL to enter Setup, Press TAB to display BIOS POST message"

Hello here is the homepage:

Try to download the manual, by selecting your windows system.
Open the manual folder, and click on global for download.

You might need to upgrade the bios, to support windows 7, and certain harddrives.
You also need at least 2 gb ram, for the install.

Good luck

How to boot from cd in ga 6wmmc7

When you turn on the computer and BIOS just begins to load, the computer will display something like..." Press (some key) to enter Setup". This key is usually "DEL", "F12", or something like that. This would bring you to the BIOS Setup Menu. Explore the options there, there's an option for boot device order. Make sure that CD comes before HDD. Of course, your CD must be bootable in order for it to actually boot.

Gday mate , you will have to start with BIOS settings on boot when it detects the drives at the bottom of the screen will be a press ( this button) to enter setup probably delete or F8 go to there and probably set standard defaults would be the best option in the list do tha and follow the prompts back to startup screen, unless it comes up with NTLDR missing which is in the OS files

Asus m2v won't boot

Press delete to go to setup. In the boot menu tab of the BIOS make sure the correct boot disk is selected, and that hard disk boot has first priority. Also make sure there aren't any bootable disks in the cd/dvd drives that might prevent the computer from booting.

Montherboard in troble poor response from the dealer

Dear Rajamoni,


please confirm that which selection u select after pressing F8.


If u select Safe mode (top option) and your system running normal in safe mode. Then the problem in your monitor refresh rate settings...under display properties(desktop-rightclick-properties-settings-advance-adaptor-list all modes-800x600 16bit 60Hz) apply all settings .your system may be normal.
