Try using F2 or F10 or Del. Check the Key board connection. You can use Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart the machine. If it doesn't work you have to change the keyboard and check again.

How do I access the BIOS settings for the P5LP-LE motherboard. The startup key says to press F1, but pressing F1 does nothing.


The instructions say:
"Hold down the F1 key during the startup process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter/reset any custom BIOS settings." I would also try hitting the F1 key multiple times from the very turn on of the computer because the key may have to register at some point after turning on.

Try clearing the CMOS settings as explained on this page, it should clear out any passwords and will set the BIOS settings back to factory settings.

As for "The CPU fan runs normally on boot, but as soon as the Windows flash screen comes up, the CPU fan slows way down."
This is quite normal. On start-up the temperature of the CPU is not being read, when the flash screen comes up just happens to be the same time that the computer recognizes that the CPU is cold and doesn't need to be cooled.

On the "Then the installation program starts running and the CPU Fan speed starts fluctuating wildly from slow to extremely fast."
This could be normal as when files are read from a DVD the CPU doesn't work hard, but when it unpacks the files or does calculations it does work hard. Or it could be that the thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink is not correct. Either dry , not making contact, or even too much. If the heat is not being transferred that would also explain the shut-down.

How to set up bios on toshiba laptop tecra m1


Hold down the Esc key and press and hold the power button until the on/off light on the system indicator panel illuminates (green) for approximately one second. When the following message appears on the screen: "Check system, Then press [F1] key," press F1. The System Setup screen appears.

If that doesn't work, try powering on the laptop and when the Toshiba splash screen comes up, hit F2 or F12.

One of these methods will get you in to the BIOS setup.

I toasted my school laptop, using it to seach arourd while taking break from studying and i am sure i now have a lovley viirus. while trying to restart laptop, all i get is the black screen with cursor...


This is a system board POST/BIOS error code (nothing todo with Windows). The ERROR 210: is a standard POST (Power On Self Test) errormessage that indicates an error with the keyboard. The error condition is thata keyboard scan code was received from the keyboard when none was expected,after the keyboard was reset.

If this occurs most of the time when you power on yoursystem, then it indicates that a key is sticking down or the key mechanical orelectrical parts are broken. Sometimes blowing out and cleaning out around thekeys will resolve this problem. Otherwise, you need to replace your keyboardwith a new (or at least a working) one.
