American Mega Trends is the BIOS. You need to insert your Microsoft Windows CD or CD/DVD of your chosen Operating System (Solaris, Linux, Windows etc) and restart your PC. If Windows is on there already, then inserting the CD/DVD and restarting should give you the opportunity to repair you OS/Windows installation. Good Luck.

Kind Regards,

That is the boot image that is displayed over the POST test. when an error is detected on boot it is supposed to clear that image and display the problem it found. 
If it does not clear on its own you can try pressing ESC and post here what it says.
if nothing happens at all pressing any key, then it is most likely found a problem that locked it up tight, such problems can be the CPU or a motherboard controller. Problems like that dont get much worse and can involve replacement of the motherboard, not for the faint of heart and quite expensive.
Let me know if ESC does anything or if there is any other text on the screen AT ALL.
Good Luck.

I would like to know how i'll be able to reset my bios password on this Yamaha system boards Part# Kj0-m4210-320. this board was using American Mega trends 486DX ISA bios.

Removing the CMOS battery will cause the system to loose all CMOS settings including the password. To do this locate and remove the CMOS battery on the motherboard for five minutes. After this has been done put the battery back into the computer and turn it back on.

Hp pavilion dv2000 lights switch on but boot or


Thank you for your query

Please try the folowing

1) Remove ALL wires and then press and hold the power button in for approx 20 seconds

2) Plug everything back in and then rerty

This may sort the issue out however from what you are descrbing, if there is no boot or display it is highly likely the motherboard and/or the CPU is faulty

I would recommend that you book the PC into a reputable PC repair shop if the above does not work

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

I start my computer display comes up ok until I log on then it turns black and won't display

Restart the laptop and tap F8 when you see the HP page. When the multiboot menu comes up, scroll to the heading choice "Last Known Good Configuration" This should boot the laptop normally. When the laptop comes back up, perform a virus and malware scan.

Takes 15 mins to boot after loading Micro trend

you have too much at startup. thats the programs the computer starts at boot up.i would go to last good configuration and see what happens if that works i would seriously get rid of some programs you don't need and defrag your computer.
