    I would need to understand what setup you are looking for on your new PC. Setup the Operating system, setup a certain program you want to run or the actual Setup that appears when you press delete when the computer boots up? Thanks.

Are you going to Setup, as in F2? or are you looking to set up some part of the computer, or a printer, perhaps?

The internet button is on, but I don't get internet from the router, only directly from the modem.


This an wire setup gone wrong!
The wire you use to get the internet from on your modem, plugs into I believe a Yellow port at the back of your router.
The rest of the ports are for hardwiring each computer.
So your computer, We say #1, will have a wire from you LAN card at the back of you computer to port #1 on you router.
you will have to go into your windows internet setup to change some settings. So to do this
My computer, Control Panel, Internet setup.Internet wizard setup.
You no longer SAY you use modem for internet, but setup through router.
This will NOT be a new setup but an existing setup

I bought Streets and Trips recently. I downloaded it to my computer. Then my computer died. I now have a new computer. How do I go about downloading it onto the new computer without paying for it twice?


You can use recovery software to recover setup from your previous computer or make hard drive of your previous computer salve to this new computer and install. But if you have lost setup files then you need to contact website from where you downloaded to get your new copy.
Thanks

How do i format the seagate 5400 160 gig hard drive?


Configuring the BIOS
After completing the drive installation, restart your computer. Your computer
may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not
automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.
1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system
setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually
done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 during
the startup process.
2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect
your new drive.
3. Save the settings and exit the setup program.
When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive.

MY LAPTOP(hp compaq presario v2000)BEEPS TWICE AND DISPLAYS PRESS F1 TO RESUME OR F2 TO SETUP!pls help


Hi, and welcome to FixYa
The computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
1. New hardware has been recently installed.
2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:
New hardware has been recently installed
If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS.

Error or confliction with settings in CMOS
If no new hardware has been added to the computer or the new hardware has been removed and you continue to receive the error, it is likely that there is an error or confliction with the CMOS. Press the key requested to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct. If everything appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults and/or Reset Configuration Data. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000976.
If all settings appear to be correct, save changes and exit CMOS setup. If the error continues to appear, enter setup again and restore all CMOS values to default.
· See our CMOS page for additional help and information with the CMOS.
· Additional information about getting into the CMOS / BIOS setup can be found on document CH000192.
CMOS battery is bad or failing
If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, it is also possible that the CMOS battery may be bad or failing. Generally; when this occurs, the computer is not holding the time or date correctly. If this is occurring it is recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.

How to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup.
Reasoning: 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.
