Every time I start up my laptop it goes to the setup utility screen. how do I fix it


Hi Shawn!

I'd try changing your boot order by entering your BIOS. Keep an eye out for when you start up your laptop as to which key you should hit. Usually it's F2.

Hope this helps!

Starts to the Fujitsu Screen then nothing


No Actually its fixable

There are a number of issues that can cause this but all of them are hardware related.. Mostly its eighter the hard drive or them main board (bios)

1.) Open up the laptop
You do this by removing the hinge covers, then removing the
face panel(part with the power button)
remove the kwyboard and you wiull have axcess to it..
2.) there is a battery on the main board, simply disconnect it, then remove your laptop battery and hit the power button(switch now) seven times.. Hopefully this will discharge any remaing power and reset your bios..

now try booting, if that works, simply enter your bios(setup) and load the optamised defaults then save and exit..

If that fails, Open back up the laptop again and try disconnecting the hard drive.. If it boots and says no boot disc, then your hard drive is defective and needs to be replaced..

If all that fails you will need to replace your mainboard.. if you are not qualified enough to do this i suggest you take it to a technician,,, Let me know what happens and if you need additional information, just post your question here and i shall reply asap

Black screen blue box saying


some one must have put in a boot password to your laptop,
follow this:
When booting up, enter your BIOS setup (usually by pressing the F2 key at the appropriate time).

Locate the BIOS Password section and turn the ON STARTUP password to off. There is no standard setup for BIOS, so I can't give you exact instructions.

If this does not work, try:
remove cell & start your pc you will here beep...beep...beep...

then turn off your pc & restore your cell.Start your pc and
password is removed.

there is a battery on motherboard,a button cell,you can try removing that and start computer, then put it back, bios settings will be lost.
you can also try removing any hardware like ram,if you have two,when system is off,turn on , it will prompt for changes , enter bios and try remove password.

When I turn the laptop on I see the Toshiba screen for just a second and then it instantly goes to this lovely black screen that says password= How this got there I have know idea. Can anyone help?


Dear beanbean,
This "lovely black screen" is a BIOS password screen. This shows up because somebody has set a boot-up password in the BIOS Setup. If you're lucky, the BIOS Setup is still unprotected, and you can access it as follows:
When you turn it on, look for something that says "Press [button] to enter Setup" or "Press [button] to enter Setup Utilities." Press the corresponding button on your keyboard, and you should enter BIOS Setup.

Now two things can happen. Either you are permitted to access Setup, or you are prompted for the password.
If you can access Setup, navigate to the Security tab and clear all set passwords.If not... then you can either reset BIOS by unplugging the computer, taking off the back, and removing the CMOS Battery (unrecommended), or you can call Toshiba support and ask for the master password (Most manufacturers have a master password, which will allow you to access Setup and remove the boot-up password)
Hope this helps,Ericthecmh

I need to find the CMOS setup utility for an assignment in my computer class. I cannot find it after pressing F2. Is this a software issue or a hardware issue? How do I get to CMOS setup utility?


Several Gateway computers use F1 to get into BIOS. Also you may not be hitting the Function button at the right time, you might be hitting it too early or too late. What usually works is hitting F1 or F2 buttons repeatedly right after you switch on the computer.


Hope this helps ;)

What is the boot up sequence please


You need to go inside BIOS to find out whats the boot sequence. To activate the BIOS Utility, press F2 during POST (when “Press <F2> to enter Setup” message is prompted on the bottom of screen).
Press F2 to enter setup. The default parameter of F12 Boot Menu is set to “disabled”. If you want to change boot device without entering BIOS Setup Utility, please set the parameter to “enabled”.
Press <F12> during POST to enter multi-boot menu. In this menu, user can change boot device without entering BIOS SETUP Utility. Navigate to BOOT page on top.

Hope this helps!

After turn on is asking for password (bios) and no body set up any password.


Hi, "Reboot" the Computer, look at the bottom of the [Screen] there will be (2) two, "Options" F2 for {Utilitiys Setup} and F12 for [Boot Options]; you want to "Press" the F2 button immediately at "Startup!" Once your in the Utilities, you can change the [Password]. If all go well, let me know by giving a "helpful rating," thanks.

Want to re-format MSI Notebook S420. Screen continuously shows windows 'loading' but never boots. I have the recovery CD but because the computer never actually starts, I'm not sure what to do with it!MSI


Hello megan_van

While your laptop is on, eject the optical drive and insert the recovery CD. Turn off your laptop via the power button, and turn it back on. The recovery CD should boot. Follow the on-screen instructions to do a clean install.

If the recovery CD doesn't boot, try holding down the C key after turning on your laptop. If it still doesn't boot, you will have to change the boot order in BIOS. Don't worry, this is easier than it sounds! Follow these instructions:

1. Turn on your laptop, and look for a message that says something like PRESS (USUALLY F2, F8, DEL, ETC.) TO ENTER SETUP / BIOS. Hit that key before the Windows logo appears.

2. After hitting the relevant key, you'll be taken to the BIOS setup utility. All BIOS utilities have different appearances, but it is basically a set of menus containing different settings for your laptops hardware. Somewhere on the screen (usually the bottom), is a set of instructions for navigation your way around the BIOS. Follow these instructions to navigate your way to the option for changing the boot order.

N.B. Since every BIOS setup utility is different, the specifics on where the boot order options are located varies from computer to computer. The menu option or configuration item might be called boot options, boot, boot order, etc. The boot order option may even be located in a general menu like advanced options, advanced BIOS features, other options, etc.

3. Once you've located it, use the navigational controls to place the optical drive above the hard drive (usually the +/- keys). To be certain that the recovery CD boots, it's probably best to move the optical drive to the top of this list.

4. Within the navigational controls, there is usually an option to SAVE & EXIT. Press this key. If there isn't, look for a menu option with the heading EXIT. A SETUP CONFIRMATION box will now usually appear asking you to confrm the changes you've made to the BIOS before exiting.

N.B. The SETUP CONFIRMATION box can sometimes be worded cryptically. Read the message carefully to be sure that you're saving your changes instead of exiting WITHOUT saving your changes!

Your computer should now restart automatically, and the recovery CD should now boot.

Hope this helps. If you require further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.
