What function key gives entry to cmos


BIOS is fixed program that starts up the computer. BIOS is initialized during start up of HP Compaq-6715B which sets the computer settings to be uploaded. BIOS enables the creation of a bootable diskette, CD, or USB key that can be used to locally restore or upgrade the System BIOS in the supported notebook models with a 68YTT Family ROM. Only insert the USB drive that will be used to format and create bootable BIOS upgraded USB media. However, you should remove all unused USB drives and flash drives from the notebook before. In order to ROM family and ROM date, press F10 on the target notebook during startup to run the setup utility.

The tips to get into the BIOS of HP Compaq-6715b are:

  • Press F2 for setup
  • Shows logo
  • Independent of OS
Press F2 for setup

BIOS often has a blue background, and uses the arrow keys, PageUp, PageDown and enter keys to change the settings. After you have got into or accessed the BIOS, you can change the boot order settings so that the floppy disk is checked first to see if it contains a bootable program. Usually a message will appear telling you how to enter the BIOS setup program as the computer starts up, such as Press F2 for Setup.
Shows logo

Your HP Compaq-6715b might be configured to show your computer's logo instead of important BIOS messages. In this case, you can press Esc or Tab while the logo screen is visible. If you are facing problems pressing the pause button in time, turn on your computer with your keyboard unplugged. In this situation you will receive a keyboard error, which helps you in pausing the startup process long enough for you to see the keys necessary to enter BIOS.
Independent of OS

The PCs with both PS/2 and USB connections are configured to only allow USB input after the POST. If you are using a USB keyboard, it could be impossible to access BIOS. You would need to connect an older PS/2 keyboard to your PC to access BIOS. The BIOS accessing is independent of any Operating System on your computer because the BIOS is part of your motherboard hardware.

New system. Cannot enter bios with F2 key, apparently keyboard is not working, but works well in another computer. I tried bios switches 1_2 default and 2_3. With 1_2 it goes directly to PXE_E61 error,...


hallo there, tried the DEL key? (instead of the F2, some Bios of them use older input for F2, DEL sends same key. )
Also, please count how many short, how many long beeps mopbo gives when booting.
Also: try to connect with PS2 keyboard. Possible no correct keyboard connection or even worse, when its a wireless keyboard need tyo pair keyboard with receiver first.
Also possible: is the keyboard not IBM compatible?
As said: try first to use default PS2 keyboard, theyre cheap and most of the times problem is directly solved.
If that does not solve your problem, count the beep codes and tell us please, could be some other problem, ( wrong memory, memory not placed correct, voltage problems etc etc etc)
the bios codes would help us to help you fasst.

Mouse and keyboard freeze.


its a very common hardware fault with these laptops, can you open setup or bios? that is opened right when the power is turned on the and screen says press F2 to enter bios or setup, if you can't enter bios then you have a faulty motherboard, usb ports don't work either? (usb keyboard and mouse don't work?)

I can't install vista any mouse or keyboard detected


Often times this happens when using a USB keyboard / Mouse.

Or when using a USB keyboard through a PS/2 Converter.

Try using a PS/2 Keyboard if available
(Small Round connector with a small amount of pins, similar to a S-Video connector.)

Also. Access your BIOS settings and assure that you have Legacy USB keyboard support.
Depending on your computer the BIOS / Setup Menu / Options Menu/ Etc. can be accessed by pressing the following key during boot:
F1
F2
ESC
DEL
F12


Let us know your setup(KB and Mouse Port type), and if you have any other issues.

Good luck

On boot with battery or on power same result. The computer boots to window sign on screen but mouse and keyboard do not work. On reboot tried F2 for setup screen which does work but then once at setup...


i would have told you to go into the bios but seen as you say that F2 key does not work on boot indicates that the keyboard has failed, to check this try another keyboard and see if you get the same result, or if the keyboard is USB try it in a different USB port

hope this helps

kind regards

Can't load os do you computer Dell only has usb ports


Ensure the Keyboard and mouse are connected to the USB ports nearest the PS2 port on the back of the chassis.

Boot to the BIOS F2 and ensure USB emulation is ON.

If you can't access the bios, reset the BIOS using the Jumper on the motherboard, then USB ports should then work.

Keyboard & mouse are dead


I just fixed this problem by doing the following:

Hard power-off (hold the power button until the laptop turns off)
Unplug the AC adaptor
Remove the battery
Plug in the AC adaptor
Hold ctrl and turn the power on. You should arrive at a black screen.
Hard power-off again, then turn the power on.

I had this problem for a very long time as well. Turns out this is an encryption issue. It's off-balance. You need to reset the encryption, and here's how:

On the LEFT side of your wireless keyboard press and hold Ctrl+Alt, and press F12, then release all three buttons. Now push the Connect button on your Wireless Receiver, then the connect button on your wireless keyboard. Now press Esc. Try it. See if it works. It did for me.
