If you harddrive is not detected or you can't see any display on screen then open cpu cabinet. Reattach the RAM memory ,both connection to harddrive .Reconnect processor and it's fan pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes.Remove pci card or vga card if any then check.Make sure motherboard is not ground with cabinet.

You can enter BIOS setup or UEFI firmware via traditional method: Boot the PC, while the firmware starts to run, press F2/F1(Fn+F1 or Fn+F2). However, computer boots fast, maybe you often miss the trick to press F2/F1(Fn+F1 or Fn+F2). You can enter UEFI firmware from windows 8 or 8.1.
1. Boot up your computer and immediately hold down f1. If it boots up normally then restart your computer and try f2. try all of the f keys and try del or esc until it boots up into your BIOS setup. This will look like a bunch of very blocky graphics. (usually the buttons are either f1, f2, f8, f10, del, or esc) 2. Once in your BIOS, navigate with the arrow keys and enter until you find the option to boot into "safe mode with command prompt" select that option, save your preferences and reboot your computer. 3.Once you've booted into safe mode, log on as the administrator or guest. Usually it does not require a password. 4. At the command prompt type "net user *" but type that without quotes and where it says you're user name just type you're user name without the 's. 5. It will ask you for a password. Type in the password you would like (It won't show the keys or even * that you are typing so that's ok). It will ask you to retype the password so do that. 6. reboot your computer and hold down whichever key that you used to get into setup. 7. Once in setup change the option from booting into "safe mode with command prompt" to the default option which will usually say boot into windows or something to that effect. 8. Log in as yourself using the password that you typed in at the command prompt. Hope that helps
As soon as you turn on the computer start tapping (not fast, but steady) the F1 key, you could try F2, DEL, and other various keys that work on other boards.
Usually the screen will show you what to press in the corner or somewhere on the screen.
F12 for boot / F2 for BIOS / etc
Or it might say Press F1 or F2 or something to enter Set-up.
You have to catch it before the computer starts to boot into your operating system.
At this point you can push the power button for half a second and the computer should turn off instantly as you have not started booting up the computer.
Then you can try another key to enter the BIOS.
After locating the manual and skimming through it, I see that it states you need to press the DEL key to enter setup (BIOS).
Please let me know what is the make and the model of the pc that you are using.. Also, go to the bios, under boot menu, make sure that you have hard drive as the first boot option.. For further queries please get in touch..
Some very old Sharp PCs require a Setup Diagnostics Disk to access BIOS.
Shuttle - Glamor G-Series, D'vo, Prima P2-Series, Workstation, X Mini XPC, Surveillance
Press F2 or Del on startup.
Sony - VAIO, PCG-Series, VGN-Series
Press F1, F2 or F3 after turning on the computer.
Toshiba - Portégé, Satellite, Tecra
Press F1 or Esc after powering on to access BIOS.
The following companies are either closed for business or no longer manufacture or support mainstream computers systems so verifying the following BIOS access information is nearly impossible. I have included what I could dig up for anyone who might be interested: ARI / ALR / AST (Advantage) - Press the Ctrl+Alt+Esc or Ctrl+Alt+Del keys. Cybermax - Press the Esc key. Tandon - Press the Ctrl+Shift+Esc keys.
