Do you see a BIOS screen before the PC loads Windows?

Power off and complete a cold boot from switch. If you still can't see the BIOS screen then check that you have plugged the cable into the right socket. Some PC's have on-board outputs and when a High End Graphic card is installed these are disabled by default. Look at the pins in the VGA plug for bent pins.

If you see the BIOS and then lose screen then the refesh rate or screen resolution is incorrect. We Windows Logo shows press the F8 key at the top of the keyboard to enter safe mode and then change the screen settings down to say 800x600 or 1024x768 to start with. Also make sure that the screen refresh is in 60 hz to start with at these resolutions.

I press function key & the wireless capabillity still dnt turn on is there another way 2 turn it on? its a ms6837d

Most consumer laptops have a hardware wifi on/off switch located on the sides of the laptop or toward the top row or even near the trackpad.
Also, on some laptops and most netbooks, the Fn key has alternate uses, however, it most keyed in with other keys in order to make the shortcut execute the command. In this case, Fn might not work without also holding the "Shift" or "Ctrl" key + the F-key that corresponds to the enabling/disabling of wifi.
Lastly, you might also want to look into the BIOS screen (when booting the laptop) most portable devices offer a low-level disable from that menu so that even when enabling via the Fn-keys or directly from the Windows/OSX/Linux OS, it will not turn on and stay disabled until changed via the BIOS menu.

Our computer is telling us we need to update the BIOS computer shuts itself off

All BIOS components are serviceable via a firmware upgrade that is known as "flashing" this process is called "updating the BIOS". The process itself is fragile since any power fluctuation during a flash may irrevocably corrupt a BIOS' firmware. Great care will need to be taken in order to safely accomplish this.

This guide will help you flash your BIOS by taking precautions and walking you through each step. Not all computers will have the same BIOS manufacturer, let alone the same process, but many have similar steps and precautions.

Also check with your motherboard manufacturers website for specific BIOS updates and updating instructions. mpawlak908

Hi BIOS password fogoten

you will have to contact Toshiba. desktop units are fairly easy to reset bios passwords. laptops are very difficult if not impossible to do this with. if you are the original owner of the laptop they will assist you with walking through the reset process. if this is out of warranty they will charge you. good luck !

sounds like your floppy drive is failing, you could get it replaced or simply turn it off via the BIOS.
to turn it off simply hit the F2 key. On the first screen usually it will list your Hard Drives, CD ROMs', and the Floppy. scroll down to the floppy and hit enter ot the corresponding key form the bios's legend at the bottom or right hand side of the screen untill you see disable.
Next you can navigate to Save & exit or hit F10 to do the same. G/L.

Bios cheksum error

hi im josh in cebu phils. may i helped you? Friend you need to replace your cmos battery because The most common cause of a checksum error during the startup process is due to a faulty battery which is not providing sufficient power to the motherboard when the computer is off. However, motherboard malfunctions and viruses can also contribute to checksum errors. good luck.
