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.

How can i load the bios setup if F2 or F12 keys are not working in my "Acer Ferrari 1000" notebook.?


You can do this by buying an external usb keyboard and connecting it to your computer usb port. When you restart your computer you should be able to enter your bios setup by means of pressing F2 or F12... Have a nice day friend. Hope this would solve your problem.

My keyboard on my laptop wont work at all!!


  1. Turn off the computer, disconnect all external mouse devices, keyboards, USB devices, and the port replicator or docking station, and then restart the computer.
  2. Ensure there is not any debris between the keys or liquid spilled on the keys.
  3. Verify that the NUM LOCK is turned off.
  4. Remove all the accessibility options for the keyboard in Control Panel.
  5. Remove and reinstall the keyboard driver.
  6. Using the System Restore utility, restore the computer to a time when the keyboard was working correctly.
  7. Reset the BIOS defaults.


If the keyboard does not work in the BIOS Setup utility, the issue is likely a failed keyboard and service may be required.

USB system is not working


nope..you can try to boot from an installtion cd..but without HI options(Human Interface) you may find it's locked..sounds a lot like the Motherboard went south.

You could try to reseat the memory, but that's a low probability approach to this sort of problem

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.
