If you can get in setup after pressing F2 check on the advanced chip tab,video and make sure 8mb buffer is selected. save and exit.

F-2 is for setup utility
F-10 is for network boot.

if it stll won't boot up correctly press F8 when booting up and select vga support then maybe get in to the os that way and adjust video display settings after.

MediaShield ROM BIOS 6.33 detecting array on the screen of an emachine pc


You need to be more clear than that. You say detecting an array? What kind of array? When does it say that? Do you mean you have an array of hard drives installed? If so, then so what?

That means that the hard drive is not detected properly on the computer.
Start the computer and keep tapping F2.
You will get a setup utility.
Press F9 and hit ENTER.
Press F10 and hit ENTER.
Now restart the computer.
If u still have the blinking cursor on that black screen, u need to check your hard drive.
If u are gettng some other error in windows or just a black screen, try doing recovery.
Recovery will wipe off all your datas in the computer.
For doing it, keep tapping Alt+F10 as soon as u turn on the computer.
If u are succesful, it will give a message that windows is loading files.
Just follow the prompts.

Keep me posted on the status of the issue.
If that helps, dont forget to rate me.

What is the key combination to access BIOS on a Compaq please


mike,
Del key is the general key to enter most of BIOS, but some BIOS has F2 some F10 and few Esc

You can easily see the button on POST screen, i.e. when you power on your PC just see on screen there may be a message like 'Press Del to enter Setup'

Thanks
