I assume that you are talking about going into the setup screen at the startup of the computer. Bios shadowing usually refers to the video bios which when enabled allows it to be copied to the system dram for better performance. Bios caching enables segments of the system bios to be cached to main memory for faster execution. Cached essentially means saved to. As for the blue screen stop error- I refer to this as the Blue Screen of Death because usually the only way to fix it is by reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling the operating system. Hopefully this was a little helpful. Good Luck.

Welcome to Fixya

Make sure first that there are no devices plug in to the usb when you boot up the computer. Check if the harddrive is being detected by the computer. Press F2 to go to BIOS menu and see if the computer can detect you harddrive. It should be under the main menu and will say below harddrive. It should give you infromation of the harddrive. If there is no information of the harddrive then the problem there is the harddrive already.

Please reply to this email for any update.

Operating sysmtem not found. Cannot re-install either. Blue screen saying to disable shadowing and cacheing in BIOS!!! Cannot access F8. Installed new hard drive and the same message.


If you have a new hard drive,it must be formatted and the OS must be reinstalled upon it. You are getting this error because there is no OS on it currently, according to what you are telling us here.

Blue screen on my P.C.,windows shut down


If you are using an AGP or PCI graphic card try disabling the on board video adapter from BIOS.

Ensure that you have the latest drivers for this video card installed.

If the video adapter is using shared memory, then you may have a faulty RAM module.

Reinstall Direct X and any graphic acceleration software.

Go to BIOS and disable memory caching and shadowing options, this usually does not solve the problem, but you never know.

Contact video card or Motherboard manufacturer, there may be an issue between video adapter and your motherboard, or the specific software that you are using. In that case manufacturer may require to download a patch.

I have no Idea, except if it using winows, then it could be a case of right clicking a blank desktop, select setings or personalize or whatever, and change you display properties from therw. I do not know your mechine. Windows is a diferent matter.

Bios shutdown


Mike:   Look in your manual to see how to get to the BIOS setup screen. Find the BIOS shadowing or catching and shut it off.    If you need a manual download it. If you cannot get it going again, doing that . Try using the reload CD's. If you don't have one ,again look in the book and see if it is on the hard drive or wher.e If you need additional help, just ask.
