Reboot your computer and hit f2 to enter into setup. This will take you into the BIOS configurations. Arrow over and look for the option that says load setup defaults and hit enter. Then hit f10 on your keyboard to exit saving changes. This will reboot your computer and your defaults will then be loaded.

Hi Girdhari

Try this..

Go into the BIOS first and reset all to DEFAULT.

Open the BIOS. If you're not sure which key is used to open BIOS, it's either any of the following or it's listed on the first screen that appears on the monitor, before the Windows logo appears.Possible keys: Esc, Del, F2, F8, F10 or F12

Once there, at the bottom there should be F1 F2 F3 etc.,.one to display "Default". Press that F key and reboot the machine.

If you have the Windows XP Disc in the drive, it should boot up and guide you through the setup.


Hope this helps

I am running Windows XP Home edition. I changed some setting in the "Setup" using the F2 key, and then like an idiot changed something in the categories I think called "Bios"


There are several ways to reset your Bios. But until you are locked out of it, there is an easy solution. You need to reset your bios. The location and wording of this option varies for every different BIOS.It will typically be called "Reset to Default", "Factory Default", "Setup Defaults", or something similar. It may be located in one of the tabs or it may be an option listed near the navigation buttons.

What you need to do is reboot your PC, press F12 or DEL until the bios screen arrives. Then you need to just navigate to 'Defaults' or "Load Defaults" or "Load Reset to Defaults", select it, press yes and select "save and exit". The PC will restart and the BIOS should be reset to original setting.

I forgot the admin password. i'm using IBM computer windows xp. I have the CD for the password unlocker but when i go to BIOS it asks me for a setup utility password....Help! Thanks!


You need to turn off your computer and unplug the power cord. open up the box and find on the motherboard the jumper for the battery. Cut off the power from the battery for 30 seconds. The BIOS will reset to the default values.
Now, when you turn on your computer, will be able to access the BIOS, no password requested (default value for password). You also need to reset all your parameters as required by your specific setup.
Advice: if you don't have a strong reason to password the BIOS, don't do it.

Motherboard stop recognize SATA HDD after BIOS reset (default)


You'll likely need either a driver disk for your SATA drive to be recognized by Windows XP during installation or Windows XP with Service Pack 2 built in to install without a driver disk.

Creating a Windows XP installation CD with Service Pack 2 or "SP2" built in is fairly straight forward. This is called "slip streaming". Step - by - step directions can be found in the following links:
