How do I restore bios?


If all you have done is change the CMOS battery then the BIOS should be fine but it will have been reset to default settings which may have changed the Boot device and / or boot sequence.

Go in to the BIOS setup when you power on the computer and check that you have your main hard disk drive set as the main boot device.

Laptop computer will not boot, error 'Can not read A: drive', a drive not installed


Check in your CMOS to make sure that your computer isn't searching for the A: drive, set it to disabled or off. Sometimes you need to tell the computer that the A drive doesn't exist, or it will always try to boot from it, regardless of what the boot sequence is set to.

Restarting while formatting


Hi, try to check your pc's cmos setup on boot sequence, you would be needing to set the sequence to boot the system on CD drive first then your hardrive; then disable boot virus protection - this will make your OS installation with no interruption. Then save your cmos changes. you have to put your operating system program installer on your cd drive then watch the message to boot from your cd drive. hope this helps.

Cmos cheksum bad


From your problem description, it sounds like a corrupt BIOS and or a failing motherboard.

Due to the system age, I'd say cut your losses, salvage what drives are usable, and get a new (or newer) system

Acer Desktop Won't boot up with new drive


Hi there,

You need to go the bois settings.... be careful there of you don't know what your doing.

The smaller cable is SATA and the one you are trying use is IDE.. your computer is set to SATA primary drive. You need to go to advanced seeting and change some seeting around to accept the IDE as primary. Please be careful you could end up messing your system if you don't know what you are doing. Please all the changes when you make them.

Please me know if you need telephine support at the time you do these changes.

regards,

Philip
