What do I press to access the bios to reset?

Re-start the computer and well before it starts loading windows press the F2 key continuously until the screen pops up. If it does not and the computer loads and opens windows you were too late hitting the key or you were not hitting the key frequently enough. In that event you need to start the process over again by re-starting the computer again.

When im on browser everthing large and i pressed something on accident on setting while i was on internet and it wont go back to norman please help

If you mean you pressed something and everything you see now is LARGER... I've done that often. Easy fix.... hold down the "CONTROL" or "CTRL" as is is on my computer.... and while holding it down... hit the - (minus key one time). If still to big hit the key again while still holding down the ctrl key. The same can be accomplished to make things larger.... by doing the same thing.... (holding down the control key (ctrl) and hitting the + key one time. (or two times to make it smaller. Hope this fixes the problem.

My acer Aspire 7551 will not boot up, when i turn it on it says press F2 for settings?

I am no tech and don't say this is the way to FIX the prob but I was having major issues getting my ASUS to "waike up" after leaving on into hybernation or sleep. I could try 6-10 times but it would always hang at the ASUS screen and after a few minutes "ding" again like it was trying to restart. I then would have to hold power key down until it shut off agin, retry and retry. NOW.. I have the printer on before I hit power button and right after I do, I turn the power off to the printer - Canon MX860...I guess it somehow forces the computer do something but the bottem line is it has worked every time. If I power down the computer, have not yet had any probs starting it back up. Hope it helps though I am sure there is a "right" way to fix

Hiiiii friend i have problen with my phone last night i update my phone and when process completed and i started phone doesn't starts and show me startup failed and contact retailer so please help me buddy...

Hard Reset ?
Try the green/3/* thing again (until you get it to work).
- Turn off PIN code requests or remove cards
- Charge the phone fully.
- Turn off the phone.
- Remove the memory card (not really needed, but I usually do it to be on the safe side).
- Put the phone on a table (easier to press the keys then, in my opinion).
- Press the three keys mentioned above ( "green" , "*" , "3" ) and keep them securely down and do not release.
- While the keys are still down, turn the power on.
- Do not release the three keys until you see the prompt for the home city.

If it doesn't work, retry until you get it right. It is easier if you have three hands

or the solution is : Nokia Care Service .

We have deleted booting passward

Try to hit ESC key instead of ENTER key.

Hope this trick works for you.

If not consider the old passion way disconnect the cmos battery for the meantime then plug it again this should reset the password but it more tedious.

RAM installation

Hi hunter555,

First off, you've done a lot of work for nothing. What you need to do is put back the new memory. When the Dell Bios boots, it confirming that it has detected the new memory. What you need to do is hit the F1 key to reboot and continue on to the XP installation. When you open the case, it will say the same thing. Don't worry about it, it's only confirming that the case was opened. Typically, I shut off the case intrusion detection, only because I'm always adding things to the machines and it's just a extra step I have to take to boot. However, it's good to know that your bios is confirming that you've opened the case, and that you've put in new memory. You want to make sure that the setup recongizes the entire memory in the banks. So, go to the system information page and make sure that it's reading the original and the additional memory 256k you added. Otherwise your done.

Good Luck

Age of empires 3 wont download

May be that particular file is corrupt and this happens rarely.You said you are being given a ignore option.So keep pressing ignore untill all the corrupted files are skipped.Indeed this may effect the game play in any of the levels but something is better than nothing. Or else, if yours is a legitimate copy,Then you will have the manufacturers warranty, so you can replace it. Also try if its having the same problem when installing on to a different computer.
