Question about PC Desktops

Old Pentium III

I need to get into the setup to change the RAM configuration but it doesn't recognize the DEL key or the TAB key (which is displayed during Windows XP Home bootup). Is there any other way to do that?

Thanks,

Jack Null

Are you refering to the system config utility at the begining of the boot up? I am guessing that is what you are trying to get into . .... Simply press F1 durring the first few moments of boot up and it should take you right into the setup.

P4 bios setup boot


You haven't supplied much information on the boot problem ?

Restart your computer and enter BIOS mode.
On most computers this is done by pressing the Delete ot F2 key but will vary depending on your computers bios other keys Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc , ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc) , Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc).
Scroll over to the "Hard Drives" tab, and make sure your computer has the hard drive assigned to be on.
Often during BIOS you can select auto-detect or change options with your hard drive to make sure Windows can recognize it.
Once you've selected your desired options, continue to boot.

Compaq system board 686,0MB (320756) board manual


That's an old mainboard (Motherboard), used in a Compaq Presario 5716 desktop computer. (And perhaps a few other Compaq Presario's)

1) Uses a Slot 1 (Intel) processor slot.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slot_1

2) Maximum Intel Slot 1 processor that can be used, is an Intel Pentium III, with a 100MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (100MHz FSB)
Maximum frequency rate for the processor is 700MHz.
('Speed')

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-III/TYPE-Pentium%20III%20%28Katmai%29.html

(Scroll the page down)

3) Ram memory is SDR Sdram at 100MHz. Or also known as PC-100. (168 pin. 82 on each side. Two Locating Notches on bottom. Commonly just known as Sdram, but that is a misnomer)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC100

Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory is 384MegaByte.
Maximum Amount for each ram memory slot is 128MB.
There are 3 ram memory slots.

4) Do not know what the jumper settings on the motherboard are.

5) Do not know what the Front Panel header pinout is.

6) Can run Windows XP Home Edition, but do not expect a world of performance.

My hp pavillion intel pentium 4, cpu 1.05 does not display bios setup at all what can i do?


I presume you have pressed the "delete" key on boot up (keep tapping it) it could be "F2" with some HP computers it could also by the "F10" key and you might have the option from the safe mode "F8" key. The answer is to start with tapping the "Del" key on boot up and go from there.

Make sure harddrive is recognized in bios. You can check it in bios setup for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del aLT+F2 key to enter in bios then you can see bios setup load optimal defaults settings Check your harddisk is recognized in main bios page. Open cpu cabinet then reconnect RAM memory and both connection to harddrive . Then check. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Computer saying error loading operating system


You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.

inform me of what happened after you have done this.

The bulletted list contains the system requirements from Valusoft on this game:
  • Operating System: Windows® 98/Me/XP
If you are running win XP, then you probably meet the OS, Processor, and RAM specs.
  • DirectX®: 9.0
To find your version of direct x, click run and type dxdiag in the command box. The Direct X version is on the main page of the Direct X diagnostics page.
  • Processor: Pentium® III 700 MHz or 100% compatible (Recommended: Pentium III 1 GHz or higher.)
  • RAM: 128 MB (256 MB Recommended)
  • Hard Drive Space: 500 MB Free
  • Drives: 8x CD-ROM
If you are running Win 98 or Me, right click my computer and click on properties. The general tab of the system properties will tell you the CPU, Operating system, and RAM. (Almost all CD-ROM drives fit this minimum spec.)
  • Video Cards: 32 MB DirectX compliant video card (Recommended: 64 MB DirectX compliant video card), DriectX compliant sound card.
To find your video adapter, go to:
Start/control panel/system and on the hardware tab click device manager. Then click the + sign next to display adapter. Please report back what under display adapter.
(if it says Intel, Sis, or VIA, you have onboard graphics and the game will not work) You will need an upgraded video adapter to play the game.
