Question about HP Pavilion N3410 Notebook

1 Answer

I Have an old HP pavillion model N3410. I am trying to access BIOS or change boot order but it won't let me. I've tried pressing f2 during reboot but it goes straight to normal windows me startup.Also tried pressing escape during boot but get the same results. This is an old machine but still works fine, I want to get into BIOS or at least change boot order so that I can install a Linux OS and get rid of the windows ME OS. Any suggestions on what to do? Will the default boot order read the cd-rom first or will I have to change it. How can I access setup?

Turn the computer off.
Hold down any key on the keyboard, and turn the computer on.
You might get a "keyboard error, press <something> to enter BIOS SETUP".

Also, instead of F2, try F1 or F10 or F11 or F12 or DEL.

In order to change the boot drive you have to change the boot settings in BIOS, or sometimes you can get a separate boot menu which allows you to change this setting on a one-off basis. During the boot sequence you need to press the "F12" button during the POST testing to bring up the boot menu if one is available, otherwise you need to press the "Del" or "F2" button during the POST process to bring up the Bios screens. Navigate to the BOOT option and alter the boot sequence, save the settings, exit BIOS and reboot.

Go to boot and select the boot order.Use F4 or F5 to change.
First boot device: Cd/dvd drive
Second: the harddrive.
Leave the bios and save the settings.

Place your windows cd in the drive and reboot.
Now you can install windows again.

Good luck

I tried to install windows 7 on my HP Pavillion DV9, but it's not booting from CD-ROM, i tried using a USB CD-ROM, but it's still not booting. pls I need assistance.


Hi,

Try to check if the windows 7 disc that you are using is not just an upgrade disc. Make sure that it is a bootable disc. Try to use other bootable disc to test. Also make sure that the boot device priority is set CD/DVD drive.

Hope this helps.

How can I change boot sequence in Compaq Evo N410c?


You need to access your BIOS configuration. 1. To do this, shutdown your computer and boot it by pressing the power button. 2. You need to hit F10 when the computer first powers up in order to get into BIOS (Note that the key is usually different for different computers. If F10 doesnt work, try F2, F12, Delete or F9. 3. Once in the BIOS, you should find the boot sequence option.
Hope this helps!

Entering bios setup


Occasionally, most computer owners will need to access BIOS on their computers in order to change or update the computer's most basic operations; such as memory and boot order.

Different computer manufacturers will have you press different buttons to access BIOS depending on the model you have. For example, on my laptop, I press F12 to enter the BIOS setup utility.

Here's how to figure out how to enter your computers BIOS setup utility. 1
Turn your computer on or shut it down and restart it if it is already on.
  • Step 2 As soon as the computer starts up, watch for a message that informs you about which button you will need to push in order to enter setup, aka BIOS.
  • Step 3 The opportunity to press the correct key to enter BIOS passes by quickly, so you need to find that key and press it before the computer moves on to the next stage of booting. If you miss your chance, just restart the computer and try again.

    You can always access BIOS, even on computers that dont have an operating system installed. This is because BIOS is part of your computer's motherboard hardware and has nothing to do with Windows, Linux or whatever operating system you may be using.

    How do I Access BIOS screen in a IBM PII-6862-84U?


    As the computer boots press the DEL key to access BIOS
    note: some systems you must press F2 or Esc
    In BIOS under the BOOT tab options change the Boot order so that the CD drive is First
    Select EXIT and Save Changes to reboot
    note: make sure the CD is in the drive BEFORE you reboot!
    (it sounds obvious but a lot of people forget)
    If the CD is bootable it will start its own boot sequence.
