Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

2 Answers

E-Machine T1100 I am trying to access the BIOS settings on an E-Machine T1100. I've tried tapping on all the "F" buttons during startup. I've tried pressing "Ctrl+Alt+Insert", "Ctrl+Alt+PageUp", "Ctrl+Alt+PageDown", Ctrl+Alt+Home", "Ctrl+Alt+End" and "Esc" with no luck. All I see at startup is an E-Machine logo. How the heck do I access the BIOS settings?

Press "DEL" when you see the white emachine screen.

However, the amount of time it takes for the monitor to come out of sleep mode is quite lengthly, so it is easy to miss seeing the white screen altogether.

One way to get around this is to cycle the power on your monitor just before turning on the PC, so it will be on when the PC starts up.

The lazy way to get around this is to turn on the PC, and immediately start tapping "DEL" at 1-sec intervals, which will usually have you at the BIOS Setup screen by the time the monitor turns on.

How can i find my bios? i need to fix it because the blue screen is saying bios memory or cauche or shadowing things


Try powering off the machine then turning it back on. When it comes back on, immediately press the key to access your BIOS settings (it should be on the startup screen, if not try the F2, DEL, or ESC buttons)

Locked out from eee box 1035 need to reset bios how?


Try this. Right out of the manual. The reset button is the little pin hole next to the power. Will need a paper clip that is straightened.

Entering the BIOS Setup
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) stores system hardware
settings that are needed for system startup in the PC.
In normal circumstances, the default BIOS settings apply to most
conditions to ensure optimal performance. Do not change the
default BIOS settings except in the following circumstances:
An error message appears on the screen during the system
bootup and requests you to run the BIOS Setup.
You have installed a new system component that requires further
BIOS settings or update.
WARNING!
Inappropriate BIOS settings may result to instability
or boot failure. We strongly recommend that you change the BIOS
settings only with the help of a trained service personnel.
Quickly enter the BIOS
Windows8 boot time is quite fast, so we developed the following
three ways for you to quickly access the BIOS:
Before booting up the system, insert a straightened paper clip
into the BIOS Reset key.
BIOS Reset key
Press the power button for at least four seconds to shut down
your PC, then press the power button again to turn your PC back
on, and press F2 during POSt.
When your PC is off, disconnect the power cord from your PC's
power connector. Reconnect the power cord and press the
power button to turn on your PC. Press F2 during POST.

Back up your most important data to an external storage device in case anything goes wrong while changing the BIOS settings. Remove any disc that is currently inserted in the IBM Thinkpad X41's disc drive.
2-Shut off the Thinkpad X41 laptop. Turn the laptop back on and wait for the "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" message to appear on the screen.
3-Tap the blue Access IBM button at the top of the keyboard. Click the "Access BIOS" button when the "Rescue and Recovery" menu appears.
4-Click "Yes" and wait for the BIOS to load. Type in the current BIOS password for the IBM X41 and press Enter.5-Navigate over to the IBM's "Security" heading by tapping the right arrow key twice. Scroll down to the "Supervisor Password" listing and press "F5."6-Type the IBM's current BIOS password and hit Enter. Leave the next field blank if you want to completely remove the BIOS password, or instead type in a new password to replace the old one.

    Hi, i want to set up cd drive on first boot. How do i can access to setup?


    If I don't know what computer you have It makes helping you more difficult.

    Here are some options for different computers:

    • Turn on the computer, immediately hit the F2 button. - Most computers with Phoenix BIOS.
    • Turn on the computer, during POST hit the Delete button - Most computers with AMI BIOS
    • Turn on the computer, hit Ctrl+Alt+F3, Ctrl+Alt+Ins, or Fn+F1 - Older Lenovo.
    • Turn on the computer, immediately hit the F10 button. - Some Dell computers.
    • Turn on the computer, hit Fn+Esc or Fn+F1. Older Dell laptops.
    If you tell me exactly what you have, I'll tell you exactly what to do ;)

    I Have an old HP pavillion model N3410. I am trying to access BIOS or change boot order but it won't let me. I've tried pressing f2 during reboot but it goes straight to normal windows me startup.Also...


    Turn the computer off.
    Hold down any key on the keyboard, and turn the computer on.
    You might get a "keyboard error, press <something> to enter BIOS SETUP".

    Also, instead of F2, try F1 or F10 or F11 or F12 or DEL.

    Acer 3000 Series Laptop Splash screen does not appear at startup when pressing F2 on the post page. Therefore unable to acces bios. Has e-manager but cannot access bios through it either. Welcome all...


    It sounds like the Acer logo has been turned off in the bios settings. As soon as you hit the power button, start tapping the F2 key until you see the test appear "entering setup". Once you are in the BIOS, look for the Logo settings as far as being visible during Boot up. I've seen this setting on other systems so I am thinking the Acer should be similiar.

    Emachine hesitates when typing to fast


    go into the bios and change the typmatic rate setting to a shorter interval. Usually the BIOS is accessable by tapping the "del" key as the system starts or another key combination as flashed on your screen during startup. If you get to the "starting windows" screen you will have to restart and try again.
