Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop

Screen does not light up

I have an old IBM NetVista. When I switched it on today the screen has remained black although I hear Windows start and I hear the fan running etc. Do those screens burn out? The screen and CPU are all one piece.

Don't listen to this turkey. IBM has a security feature on their computers which you'll need to disable. Reset the BIOS and when you first start up the computer, press the F1 key to access the BIOS and disable the security chip.

I want to change language of my ibm netvista desktop


The IBM Netvista should have options to change the language settings built in if you read the manual but generally, if you follow these instructions it usually works.

Go to the BIOS utility and change the language:

To run the Setup Utility program, use the following procedure.

1. Shut down the computer and wait for all lights go off.
2. Start the computer.
3. When the Setup Utility prompt appears on the screen during start-up, press F1. A Setup Utility menu will appear.
4. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5. When finished, select System Summary to verify that any configuration changes have been accepted.

Computer is on when plugged in and will not turn off with the power switch. computer will boot up to sign in window but freezes with instructions to register windows but keyboard and mouse do not work at...


First of all you have a couple of issues..

The power button on those old systems don't allow for shutoff by power button when there is an issue, odd i know but I just had one in this week...

As for registering it sounds as if the system just went through a reinstall atleast more then 30 days ago.

Try starting the system with the disc in the drive, when the system starts up try clicking ESC button or F12.

that should allow you the chance to click start from disc and restart all over again.

Unable to Acces BIOS on IBM Netvista 607931u w/ Phoenix ROM BIOS


When the IBM Setup Utility program prompt is displayed, quickly press F1.
The prompt is displayed for only a short time.
if you dont see the prompt, tap F1 repeatedly as the computer starts. If it says "starting windows" you've let it go too far and will have to restart again and repeat the process to get into the bios
REGARDS..
