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?

My Acer D250 netbook starts show a white screen the reboots it self, sometimes it not only shows white screen but also gray or it run colourful lines then it restart. When it restart it start working fine...


Suggest using Acer eRecovery Management to attempt problem resolution as follows...
1. begin with the D250 powered off ...
2. if present, remove any external monitor (unplug its VGA connector from D250 left side)
3. power on and immediately press F2 to enter the BIOS / setup utility
4. using the right cursor key, cursor over to the Main tab of the InsydeH20 Setup Utility
5. if D2D Recovery is not enabled, cursor down to it, press Enter key and enable in pop-up
6. save any changes by pressing F10 to save and exit, otherwise press Esc to just exit
7. press Alt and F10 together while the Acer logo is showing to get entry into eRecovery.
8. eRecovery entry is indicated by message at bottom of screen "Windows is loading files...".
9. if not successful, power off, wait a minute then power on again and immediately
10. press Alt and F10 at the same time - do this several times while Acer logo showing.
11. once in Acer eRecovery Management (V7.0.10) screen, just leave it there........
12. if after a day or so, the screen has not changed, the problem is likely NOT hardware.
13. on the other hand, if your screen problem occurs after awhile, then it is hardware.
14. if it is not hardware, then your Operating System is likely corrupt or has a virus.
15. If it is not a hardware problem, you can completely restore system to factory defaults.
16. board level hardware repairs best done by sending D250 to Acer's authorized shops.

When i turn on laptop acer screen comes up then goes to black page n says eroor insert a boot disc


The problem comes up if the operating system is not detected on the computer.
This could be if the hard drive is not detected, the hard drive is not select in the boot order or the OS has gone corrupt.
Also if you have a non bootable Cd in the Cd drive this can happen. Make sure you do not have any CD in the drive.
To check the hard drive you'll have to go to the BIOS. This can be reached by tapping F2, DELETE or F10 depending on the computer model.
In the BIOS look for the hard drive. If you see it load the BIOS defaults.
If loading defaults does not help the next steps can be reinstalling or repairing the windows installation.

Rate if useful.

My Toshiba A215-S4747 Crashes every time I move it.


This sounds like the Toshiba Blacvk Screen of Death issue with early A215 models. Re-boot and hold down the F2 key to bring up the BIOS screen. If your BIOS version is less than 1.9, you must update the BIOS.Go to the Toshiba support site and search by model. If your BIOS is ver. 1.9 or later, then go to the power opetion settings and set BOTH the minimum and Maximum power to 100% for BOTH battery and AC. That will fix this about 90% of the time.

Packard Bell Easynote M5255 - Will not boot up


option f2, go into bios setup and see if the hard drive is listed or detected. Auto detect hard drive save and exit. System will reboot if the same error occurs then the hard drive master boot record is probably corrupt or the hard drive has totally failed.
