Can't enter BIOS setup with F2

I can't enter BIOS setup by pressing the F2 key on start-up. F11 works and lets me set the boot order so I know it's not a keyboard problem.

I've also tried clearing CMOS as well. That didn't help.

I've also upgraded the BIOS to the latest version. That didn't help. I still can't enter BIOS setup.

    Yes, sorry I forgot to add that I also verified that the F2 key actually does work.

  • SBal May 08, 2008





    To XRAYRON, yes I repeatedly hit F2 as soon as power on. Sorry for not clarifying. I've worked with enough mb that I kind take it for granted as that being the way of getting into the BIOS setup.

    To Danmart, I'll try those tonight after I get home from work. And yes, after posting this yesterday, I tried a different keyboard -- no dice.

    Those alternate key combos didn't work. It also dawned on me that none of the normal POST output is displayed. Might be time for a new motherboard.

    I'm curious if you have pressed F2 over and over and over as soon as you turn the PC on. Like hit power and start hitting F2 I've had a few mobos that would only goto bios like that.

Found this solution online. This suggestion did resolve my problem: " I confirm for my Microsoft Natural Multimedia keyboard. It has an F-lock key at the right of F12. By default, all function keys do the actions Microsoft assigned for them: Help, Undo, Redo, New, Open, Close, Reply, Forward, Send, Spell, Save and Print. If you want them to work as regular F1...F12, you have to enable F-lock after every reboot. Very aggravating. There's a way to swap the function roles in Windows, but F-lock still needs to be enabled at boot time after the keyboard is reset to be able to use F keys normally in BIOS or DOS."

Try using another application that has a use for the F2 key. I'm not totally convinced that your keyboard is good. It is possible for just one key to fail. Happens quite often.

Floppy diskette seek failure during start-up


Hello,
You can disable that by changing the boot sequence of your computer.
Turn on or restart your computer and watch for a message while your computer is restarting about a particular key, usually Del or F2, that you'll need to press to ...enter SETUP. Press this key as soon as you see the message.

You will a screen where it says BIOS Setup. Use the arrow keys to navigate to it and look for the option that says Boot Sequence or Change Boot Sequence. Each computer differs so I can't tell you the exact appearance of your computer's Bios Setup.
You can find the instructions on how to navigate in Bios by looking at the bottom part of the screen.
Change the boot order from there. Make your main hard drive as number one and the floppy drive in the last. You can see the instructions on how to do that in the screen in BIOS setup.

After changing the order. Save and Exit. It will restart automatically and observe if you still see the issue.


I hope this helps!


Please let me know if you need more assistance.

HAVE REALTEK RTL8101E/8102E ETHERNET CONTROLLER PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE PXE-MOF EXITING PXE ROM LOOP. HAVE TRIED ADVANCED BOOT . CAN I USE RECOVERY DISK INSTEAD OF VISTA DVD WHICH I DO NOT...


It is important to isolate the cause of the "PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, Check Cable" error and solve it. To do this, follow the steps below:
  1. A loose or improper hard disk cable connection can be the cause of the error. This typically happens if the hard disk has recently been installed or moved. Check all of the hard disk's cable connections before trying anything else to solve the error.
  2. Make sure that no other storage device is connected to the computer. If there is a storage device connected, remove it.
  3. When computer start up is being attempted, enter the BIOS to see if the hard disk has been set up correctly and detected in BIOS. To enter the BIOS, follow these steps:
a. The key that must be pressed to enter the BIOS varies depending on the computer model. The key is most likely the Del key or one of the F keys. Many computers refer to this as Entering Setup and Setup is just another term used for the BIOS.
b. Try setting one's BIOS to any safe default settings. That might fix the error.
  1. Verify that the boot options in CMOS are setup correctly. Follow these steps to do this:
a. Enter the CMOS by pressing one of the following keys: F1, F2, Del, Esc, or F10. Press one of these keys when trying to start up the computer. If these keys do not work, try holding one or more keys on the keyboard when the computer is booting. This may cause a Stuck Key Error, which should allow the user to enter the setup.
b. If the CMOS setup shows an option to boot from the LAN, disable this option.
c. Try to set the CMOS settings to any safe default settings, then save and exit. After changing any settings, reboot the computer.
  1. It is possible that physical failure caused the error if the hard disk cannot be detected. If this is the case, replace the hard disk and restore one's data if a good backup is available. If one does not have a good backup, contact a company that provides data recovery services. These companies perform hard disk recovery and securely retrieve one's valuable data.


Check that the drive is detected in BIOS:
  1. Press F2 during boot to enter BIOS Setup.
  2. Go to the Boot menu.
  3. Check the Boot Drive Order.
  4. Press F10 to exit BIOS Setup.
If Boot Drive Order shows No Boot Drive:
  • Check that the drive is properly installed in the computer.
  • Try installing a different known good drive.
If PXE Boot is enabled in BIOSTo check the BIOS option:
  1. Press F2 during boot to enter BIOS Setup.
  2. Go to the Boot menu and check for Boot to Network.
  3. Press F10 to exit BIOS Setup.
If you do not plan to boot to a network, disable this option.

If you do want to boot to a network, check that the network cable connection is working properly.

How to install change first boot divice on ibm thinkcentre computer


You must enter the "BIOS" at start up (sometimes called SetUp). Press F2 or F8 or F11 or other function key that will be required by your computer. Should tell you at boot.

Enter the BIOS settings, find the boot sequence and edit it. remember to save your changes.

BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU SELECT!


Thanks for your visit today.

My laptop doesn't boot my windows 7 DVD please help me


This problem can be happen if DVD ROM of laptop is not working or BIOS setting is not set for booting from DVD drive. If DVD ROM is not working then change it. Go to BIOS setting and choose first boot device as DVD ROM if it is BIOS setting problem. This can solve your problem. It is always good to buy licensed copy of OS and other software.

Thank you..

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...


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.
