It depends on the board. The second you turn on the PC Repeatedly press "DEL" if that doesn't try These:

ESC

F1

F2

F10

F12

Then you should be in the BIOS. Look for something related to a Hardware monitor, or Power Options. and when found, enter, and look for "Shutdown for CPU thermal" Either turn that off or raise it to 80C. and that should fix the computer. if it still shuts off 10 min later, it's a hardware issue where you should take it to your local Computer Shop.

Dvd drive not seen in bios


Your computer's BIOS is an critical part of your system when it comes to hardware integration. This especially true when it comes to setting up hard drives and optical DVD drives. You can access your BIOS settings menu during the boot process of your computer. Different computers have different protocols when it comes to accessing the BIOS settings but many can be accessed by pressing "F1" or the "Delete" key before the operating system is loaded up. Consult your computer's documentation or pay close attention to your boot prompts displayed on the screen to enter the BIOS settings menu.

Turn on or restart your computer system. Press the appropriate key during POST in order to load the BIOS settings screen. You will have a short window of opportunity to press the appropriate key before the operating system loads. Search your BIOS menu settings for the appropriate menu concerning your attached hard drives and CD/DVD drives. If you are not sure where to navigate, consult your computer's owner manual. Check the drive menu to see if your DVD drive is listed. Many BIOS manufacturers give the user the option to scan for attached drives if the component does not appear to be listed. If the DVD drive does not appear after the hardware scan, turn off and disconnect your computer, take off the case cover and double check the data and power connections to the drive. Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive if it is of the IDE variety; SATA drives do not have any jumpers to set. There are three jumper settings for IDE based DVD drives: "Master", "Slave", and "Cable Select". Make sure the jumper is set to "Cable Select". Put the computer back together and plug it in. Turn on the computer and re-enter the appropriate BIOS settings menu. If the DVD drive shows up on your drive list, your computer has recognized it properly. Enter the boot settings menu of your BIOS. Change the boot order of your DVD drive to the first position so the computer will read it first during start up. This step is optional; however, you may wish to have this arrangement in case your computer needs to be started from a DVD boot disk later.

Laptop SONY VAIO VPCEB32FM: how to remove BIOS password


The BIOS password is probably the Power On Password.
This method may not work. Remove the BIOS battery for 20 mins until the charge in the BIOS is depleted. Insert the BIOS battery go into the BIOS setting and set the Date and Time etc.
If this does nor work then the BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery won't work and there is probable no backdoor passwords.
The Sony support maybe able to offer a solution, check the support WEB site..

How do I change the battery on my PC?


Yes you need to install a new BIOS battery. The old BIOS battery is flat and it cannot keep (store) the BIOS setting. Most motherboards use a coin size lithium 3 volt battery type CR2032 button battery.
Check the type of BIOS battery your motherboard uses.
When you replace the BIOS battery, go into the BIOS and set the Date and Time.

When I start my computer I get the message PXE E61 Media Test Failure:check cable. Please, help me.


Make sure first boot device is NOT set to network in the bios or maybe the hdd has gone and its looking for a operatin system to load Check cable connections (reseat),
Check jumpers on hard drive for Master/Slave or CS settings,
Check BIOS settings for boot order,
And lastly have your BIOS rescan your HD or reset your BIOS to defaults.

Put 'Hard Drive C:' before 'Network' in the boot order
(If the hard drive does not appear in the boot order, that's why the PXE network boot agents start)

Note : Check that the hard drive is seen in the BIOS setup

    Everytime we boot up our computer it says press f1 to do something and f2 to enter setup mode?


    generally an indication that something is wrong in the system setup. Press F2 and enter setup, check the time and date settings and the system event log (If BIOS has one) for incorrect settings, also check and see if the BIOS shows a hard drive installed.

    If time and are wrong, set them to correct and save settings. If system keeps losing time and date after power is removed, then the backup battery may need to be replaced.

    If HDD is not detected, then reseat it. If still not detected replace it.
