    What I need to press to get in BIOS on Toshiba Satellite A65-S126 PC Notebook?

  • keng1992 Jan 04, 2009

    Stupid me tried to install Windows 98 onto laptop that had Windows XP already installed.  During install after the hard drive was erased the screen went blank.  I was never able to complete the Windows 98 install.  Now I get a blank screen when I turn on the laptop.  Can't reinstall any operating system because I can't reach BIOS.  Will an emergency boot disc help even if I can't get to BIOS?  How do I get to BIOS?  Please help!

None of these work. know the computer before you post. there is no bios that you can access as far as i know. all you can do is choose which to boot from: HDD, CD, Network, PCMCIA, and something else.

Hey there jambure, the solutuion is follows: 1/ power up your machine. 2/ When system infornation begins to show, press F2 on an off until the bios setup screen arises. Once you are in and make some changes, ensure you save the changes made if you want them to have affect on your next boot. Hope this helps. Please update if you are not successful. Good Luck!

    Hey there jambure, upon further investigation, I have discovered that a compaq responds to pressing F10 during post to enter setup page. Good Luck!

Compaq armada 1571. Need to know how to access BIOS to check settings.


This machine ran Windows 95 making it an older Compaq. The following link describes how on older Compaqs bios was entered. On some machines, there was no hot key for entrance and another method was used. But try the F10, i. e. function key F10 at boot.

I have a Compaq Armada 1592 DMT laptop I cannot get past the user/password log in screen?


Ok the first step to try is logging into administrator most people never set a password on this account. if this does not work there is free software to remove passwords just let know and I can get the name of what I has used before.

Cannot get past the log in screen asking for user/password


There are Linux password recovery programs on the Internet that allow you to remove the passwords on User accounts.
You can Google search and download the program, you then need to make a boot CD with this program.

ALternately you can purchase a copy of Windows XP or Vista and wipe Windows 2K and install XP or Vista on the laptop.

My compaq armada 3500 wont boot up or only shows the welcome compaq logo


I think that has to do with the BIOS if it cant boot compeletly. Try pressing the key indicated to enter into SETUP if you cant just try and look for a jumper on the motherboard that is written CMOS it may be a button or something.

1 Answer

Boot up with no operating system


When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order). Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help. Alternative 1: With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options. Alternative 2: Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model. Since there was no exact model number Click here Please indicate whether this is helpful or not.
