Unable to get to CMOS using any of the 3 methods

Neither of the 3 posted methods of entering CMOS will work. Using the ESC key when powering up will display "Use F1 to enter the default setting". However when F! is depressed the system continues to load Windows (XP Prof). I downloaded the Setup Utility but when it finishing unzippind and runs the install program the message "You can not install this program". So, how can I get to CMOS or the setup program?

    Using F2 key on power up will load OS and not enter setup.

    Using ESC key ALWAYS stops at F1 to load defaults.

    Using F2, F10, F12 or DEL keys will not allow entering setup

    Am I using the wrong sequence?

    Still unable to enter setup.

This machine is one of the first "legacy free" models which means there are no BIOS options to change. All settings and resources must be assigned by the OS.
For details, please check the "legacy free" FAQ on MS Knowledge base.
If you are trying to access the BIOS to change boot order so that you can boot from a CD, hold down the 'c' key during POST/boot. This will case your laptop to boot from CD-ROM.

Usually, it is the DEL key that will get you into the setup... If there is a "post" logo (ie, Emachines logo) then you press ESC, then DEL....

Or you can try the following:

F2 key method: Turn the computer on. If you see an invitation to press the F2 key to enter Setup, do so. The Setup screen will appear.

Esc key method: Turn the computer on. If you do not see a prompt to press the F2 key, then immediately press and hold the Esc key for three seconds, and then release it. When prompted to, press the F1 key. The Setup screen will appear.

Pressing F1 is in general the key to set things to default, then carry on, not enter the bios where you want to go.

F2, F10, F12 and Delete are the keys you need to access the bios page. Only one of course, not all together.

    Ok, just found your user manual.

    Hold down ESC and turn the power on

    Then you will get the message to press F1 to enter SETUP from there.



    That should solve the problem =)

Unable to get into BIOS SETUP


hi there,

On most systems, the key or key combination to press to enter the BIOS program is displayed on the screen when the system boots up, at the time when the BIOS is ready to enter Setup.

take a look at some default keys:-
  • {Delete} (modern Award and AMI BIOSes)
  • {F2} (modern Phoenix BIOSes)
  • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{Esc}
  • {Ctrl}+{Esc}
  • {Alt}+{Esc}
  • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{S}
  • {Insert}
  • {F1}

Problem with keys used to enter the cmos


For Toshiba notebook PCs manufactured since the introduction of Windows XP, one or more of the following methods will be effective:
  • Toshiba Hardware utility method: Run the Toshiba Hardware utility from the Toshiba Console. It may also accessible (as 'HWSetup') from the Windows Control Panel. Changes to some of the settings will require re-starting the computer. This method is the only way to access the BIOS settings on some notebook PCs (Satellite 5000 series, for example). (For these machines, pressing and holding the F12 key immediately after powering-on the notebook will allow you to alter the notebook's boot priority.)

    If the Toshiba Hardware utility is not present, try the F2 key method and the Esc key method (see below).
  • F2 key method: Turn the computer on. If you see an invitation to press the F2 key to enter Setup, do so. The Setup screen will appear.

  • Esc key method: Turn the computer on. If you do not see a prompt to press the F2 key, then immediately press and hold the Esc key for three seconds, and then release it. When prompted to, press the F1 key. The Setup screen will appear.

IBM compatible users may need to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup to setup or change how their computer's hardware is currently configured.
Solution: Because of the wide variety of computer manufacturers and BIOS manufacturers over the evolution of computers, there have been numerous different ways to enter the BIOS or CMOS Setup. Below is a listing of the majority of these methods as well as other recommendations for entering the BIOS setup.
Notice: If you are unable to get into the BIOS or CMOS setup because of a password please see document CH000235.
New computers Thankfully, computers that have been manufactured in the last few years will allow you to enter the CMOS by pressing one of the below five keys during the boot.
A user will know when to press this key when they see a message similar to the below example as the computer is booting. Some older computers may also display a flashing block to indicate when to press the F1 or F2 keys.
Press <F2> to enter BIOS setup
Tip: If your computer is a new computer and you are unsure of what key to press when the computer is booting, try pressing and holding any key on the keyboard. This will cause a stuck key error, which may allow you to enter the BIOS setup.
