Procedure This bulletin documents the several different methods for gaining access to the BIOS Setup feature of most models of Toshiba computers. These setting are stored in non-volatile CMOS memory, hence the alternative term "CMOS Setup". The settings are managed by a utility program built into the computer's BIOS (Basic Input/Output System).
For Toshiba notebook PCs manufactured since the introduction of Windows XP One or more of the following methods will be effective:
F2 key method Turn the computer on. If you see an invitation to press the F2 key to enter Setup, do so. The Setup screen will appear.
Toshiba Hardware utility method Run the Toshiba Hardware utility from the Toshiba Console. It may also accessible (as 'HWSetup') from the Windows Control Panel. Changes to some of the settings will require re-starting the computer. This method is the only way to access the BIOS settings on some notebook PCs (Satellite 5000 series, for example). (For these machines, pressing and holding the F12 key immediately after powering-on the notebook will allow you to alter the notebook's boot priority.)

If the Toshiba Hardware utility is not present, try the F2 key method and the Esc key method (see below). The Toshiba Hardware utility may be downloaded from the Toshiba support website at
http://support.toshiba.com
If the computer is fully off, and/or to avoid having to re-start it (and Windows), use one or the other of the following two methods. The PC will have to be truly off (not suspended, or in standby mode, or in hibernation mode). If an external keyboard is attached to the notebook (either directly or via a docking station or a port-replicator), disconnect it until you have completed this procedure.
Esc key method Turn the computer on. If you do not see a prompt to press the F2 key, then immediately press and hold the Esc key for three seconds, and then release it. When prompted to, press the F1 key. The Setup screen will appear.
For Toshiba notebook PCs manufactured before the introduction of Windows XP One or more of the following methods are appropriate:
HWSetup method Run the HWSetup utility from the Windows Control Panel. This utility provides a relatively user-friendly way to change the BIOS settings. Changes to some of the settings will require re-starting the PC (and Windows). HWSetup was pre-installed on all but early Toshiba notebook models. If it doesn't appear as a Control Panel applet on your computer, you may be able to download it from the Toshiba Support website as part of the Toshiba Utilities package for your model.
Esc key method If an external keyboard is attached to the notebook, either directly or via a docking station or a port-replicator, disconnect it. Turn the computer on. Immediately press and hold the Esc key for three seconds, and then release it. When prompted to, press the F1 key. The Setup screen will appear. The PC will have to be truly off (not suspended, or in standby mode, or in hibernation mode) for this method to work.
TSETUP method Run the TSETUP utility, under MS-DOS. TSETUP runs correctly only when executed from a 'native' MS-DOS prompt, and with the processor running in real mode -- so not from a Windows 'DOS box', and without any memory manager software running (EMM386.EXE, HIMEM.SYS, or QEMM386.EXE, for example). TSetup was pre-installed on most early Toshiba notebook models (except for the very earliest models). It is available from the Toshiba Support website.
For Toshiba desktop PCs and servers Press and hold the F2 key immediately after turning the computer on (during the Power-on Self Test (POST)).

Computer will only start in safe mode hp cue root and hp help and restore are not working? what is the best resolution? hard drive failure?


I have included some directions from HP about using an embedded Hard drive test. This is done using the BIOS. Try this to rule out a hard drive problem. This is supposed to also repair some hard drive issues. Then, we can go from there.

Perform a hard drive self test Many computer problems are related to soft failures on the hard drive. The comprehensive portion of the HP Hard Drive Self Test repairs soft errors on the hard drive, but does not report the errors. After the test completes, be sure to restart the computer to determine if the test repaired any problems you are experiencing with your computer. To use the HP Hard Drive Self Test, follow the steps below. NOTE: If the notebook computer is configured with two hard drives, then it may be necessary to test each drive separately.
  1. If the notebook computer is running solely on battery power, plug the AC adapter into the notebook.
  2. Shut down the computer if it is running.
  3. Press the power button to turn on the computer.
  4. Press f10 when the HP/Compaq logo displays.
  5. After the BIOS Setup Utility displays, use the Right Arrow key to select the Diagnostics menu.
  6. Select HDD Self-Test options .
  7. Press enter to display a list of HDD/Self-Test options.
  8. Select Notebook Hard Drive and then press f10 to display an Estimated test time .
  9. Press f10 to continue. The Hard Drive Self Test executes a Quick test , a Comprehensive test, and a SMART test.
If any test fails , contact HP for instructions on how to order a replacement hard drive. If all of the tests pass, the hard drive is not damaged. As a rule, HP does not replace a hard drive that is under warranty if it does not fail the HP Hard Drive Self Test.

Hp pavilion tx2000 screen stays black after power up


There are several things that can cause this. Basically your laptop freezes during POST (power on self test). This happens when one or several hardware components do not pass through the test. It can be RAM, processor, motherboard. Not so likely but still possible because of a failing hdd, cd drive or even touch pad (I had this once on a Toshiba A45 laptop). So if this laptop is still under warranty it is definitely the case when manufacturer should fix the issue. If it is not under warranty it would be hard to determine the problem without testing your system and each of its components.

When i boot up i get a message that my hard disk failure is immenent is there anyway to repair this problem


if you get a "Disk Controller Error" error messages that may occur before Windows XP or Windows 2000 is started. Imminent Hard Disk Failure This error may appear when the hard drive detects that it will fail or stop working sometime soon.
Backup Data Before Proceeding Although the notebook may continue to start Windows after displaying the message, it is advisable that you immediately backup your personal data from the PC by copying it to a Network Drive, CD, DVD or USB storage device. After completing the backup, use one of the following methods to resolve the error. Step 1: Test the Hard Drive Use the steps below to test the hard drive in a Notebook PC using the HP Hard Drive Self Test.
  1. Plug the AC Adapter into the Notebook PC.
  2. Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the PC.
  3. Press and hold the F10 key while you press the Power button to turn on the PC. Release the F10 key after text is displayed on the screen of the PC.
  4. After the BIOS Setup Utility is displayed, use the Right Arrow key to select the Tools menu.
  5. Select Hard Drive Self Test
  6. Press the Enter key to start the test.
The Hard Drive Self Test will provide an Estimated test time . A Quick test, a Comprehensive test, and a SMART test will execute when the Enter key is pressed. If any test fails , order a replacement hard drive. If all of the tests pass, the hard drive is not damaged.



If all tests pass , press the power button to restart the PC. The error was most likely a result of a shock to the PC triggering a SMART error from the Hard Drive. Since the Notebook PC passed the Hard Drive Test, it is safe to use.

Hp laptop froze


Hello,

I understand that notebooks boots into safemode, but when you are trying to reinstall the OS it is freezing, let me assist you in this regard.

As the notebook is frezing while installing the OS, first we need to check the Harddrive.

In DV6000 notebooks, there will be option to do Harddrive selft test.

1 Restart the notebook
2. At HP logo screen keep pressing the F10 key to open BIOS.
3. In the BIOS you can find the Diagnose Tab. (Select it)
4. Under that click on harddrive self test.

If the test pass, you need another set of recovery disks to Restore notebook to factory settings.

If the test fails, then you need to replace the harddrive.

If the notebook is under warranty, then you will get new harddrive from HP.
