At boot up its suggested to press the delete key every two seconds untill the bios main menu loads.
If you have a hard drive connected & video display but can not get into the bios screen, clear the bios jumper on the board keep in clear mode for at least 15 seconds. Remove the battery too.
Check the battery for the correct voltage (3volt). Than move jumper back to normal & reseat the battery.
As shown in this pic.

I can't get to the Setup utility - 88439af.jpg If you press & hold the delete key chances are you'll get a keyboard error beep & have to restart the system.
You can download driver software, bios & manual from Asus web site below.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A7S333&SLanguage=en-us
Once in the bios go to Boot menu. Page 72 in manual. Set system boot cd-rom before the hard disk drive. You should be able to get windows CD to load.

Good Luck!

Hello,

What you have is truly unusual. This is the sort of thing some viruses are only capable of pulling off.

Within your setup pages, prior, did you have bios protections enabled? Asus, in general, is pretty good at protecting itself from infection, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.

In any case, I'll tell you how to defeat this, get back to your setup pages, at which time you will need to find the currently language being used to protect your Bios from changes. This used to be called onboard anti virus, why it was changed is beyond me. I've been building computers with Asus board for more than 10 years and what happened to you is rare, my friend... rare indeed.

You will want an Anti Virus program that can examine 'memory' on startup, schedule a bootup virus scan and thus scan for viruses before a Windows environment has loaded. The anti virus program I will suggest you download is free for home use is made by Awil. This program can run side by side with many other Anti Virus programs but not all. For this exercise, we need to scan your bootup sectors and this program is exceptional at doing this. Once you are virus free, or confirm you are virus free you can choose then whether to keep it or not. One of its selling points is that it is truly hands off. It updates itself and gives you a voice message each time it is updated.

You can get the software from Avast.com as your download begins go back to the Avast pages and register your copy. They will email you a key. Copy and paste this key into a Notepad document and save it to the same permanent location as your Avast installer location, such as c:\software\avast .

During install you may receive a message or two about some elements of Avast not being compatible with what you may be running now. Select OK for these, which are usually email scanners.

The first thing Avast wants to do after you install it is reboot of course. Choose 'no'. You will notice a new pair of icons in your system tray. One is your avast Virus Recovery Data Base. This is the reference set for comparing file sizes during a scan and thus identify some clever infections. Later, right click it and tell it to update VRDB when idle.

Right click the blue globe with the A on it and choose "Start Avast Anti Virus", you will be prompted for a license key or continue in demo mode. Copy the license key emailed to you and paste it in now. You will get a confirmation message. Allow the program to startup, it may take some minutes as it examines everything sitting in RAM and your Virtual Memory Page File.

Once it up and running click on the arrow on the interface near the top left, this drops down a menu of options, one of these is "Schedule Boot-Time Scan".

Once this is scheduled shut off (important) and once it has been off for a minute start your computer up and you can casually follow the bootup scan process. You will be prompted on what to do with an infection when found. You can choose Always for some of these but put everything in your virus Chest.

Now, this is how to get back to your bios setup screens. Remove the left side cover. Unplug the power cord to your PC and if there is a LED lit up wait for it to go out. Now, find the button battry for your system board, a shiny flat object smaller than a quarter larger than a nickel. You want to pop this out, leave it out for a minute and then reinsert the battery. Normally there is a press to eject point that isn't all that noticeable for its purpose. You can crimp on this with some needle nose pliers or you may also choose to slip the end of a sharp knife under the battery and pop it out that way. Either way, be prepared for the possibility for the battery to really pop free and go flying into your comptuer's case area. Once you have it in hand just set it aside while battery held settings are reset. Then, reinsert the battery by putting one edge in and then pushing down on the battery to seat it in place.

Reattach the left side of the case, stand your PC up and then insert the power cord. When your machine starts up press and tap the Del key until you get your bios pages. At the bottom is a legend that will tell you what F key to push to set system defaults, so press F9 if that is the one, check that bios protection is enabled and your boot up order of devices is floppy, CD Rom, Hard Disk, save your changes and restart. The anti virus program will run if you haven't run it yet.


If you have any questions, ask using the comment box and I or another will get back to you as soon as we can.

Regards,
Worldvet

I got a Motorola wired modem and it dosn't let me play xbox live why?


you may have to open a port that you xbox can use to connect to xbox live
    • 1 Connect only your Xbox and computer to the Internet. Disconnect all other devices. This is done to easily determine the Xbox's IP address, which is used in the Port Forwarding process.
    • 2 Open the Windows Command Prompt from the Start Menu. Click "Start > Run...," then type in "cmd" and hit "OK."
    • 3 Enter "ipconfig" n the command prompt. A list of IP addresses pop ups. Write down the IP address of your computer.
    • 4 Open your router setup utility through a web browser. Use the given directions from your router manufacturer to do so. Generally, the configuration page is opened by inputting the router IP address into the URL in the following format: http://123.456.7.8/ (where the IP Address number is unique to the router manufacturer).
    • 5 Open the "DCHP Client List" section of the router setup utility. This lists the devices currently connected to the Internet through the router, which is your computer and Xbox. Write down your Xbox's IP address (in this case, the one that is not your computer's IP address).
    • 6 Navigate to the "Virtual Servers" or "Port Forwarding" menu in your router setup utility. Most manufacturers have a side menu on their router setup utility, which is generally a section under your "Firewall" settings.
    • 7 Input the following port numbers and your Xbox's IP address into your router's port forwarding configuration:
      TCP 80
      UDP 88
      UDP 3074
      TCP 3074
      UDP 53
      TCP 53
      Placing these numbers in the port forwarding menu opens up the required ports that your Xbox needs to connect to the Xbox LIVE network. Save this configuration.
    • 8 Start up Xbox LIVE to check your connection. If you have no problem connecting, then you have successfully forwarded the required ports.

I recievced a dell pc desktop dont know what model it is but its set up for a corp network. cant get pass password would like to wipe drive and install xp have disks. how do i go about this. i think its...


The model name, and model number is usually on the back of the computer tower, next to the Windows Product key, or up on the side of the computer tower case.

Sometimes you have to open a door on the Front Panel, and it is located inside. (Not on the door. On the computer. The Front Panel is the plastic front of your computer)

You have XP Installation disk/s?
You are aware that Microsoft's User's License states,
"Only one genuine copy of Windows per one computer"

(Microsoft makes a Master disk of an Operating System. The copies made from it are bought by the consumer. These are GENUINE copies)

If the Windows XP installation disk you have is a fresh disk, I suggest you go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options change the first boot option to CDROM.

Windows doesn't 'like' having the same operating system installed over it.

Making sure that your optical drive, (CD or DVD. Player or burner, doesn't matter), is the first boot device, will override the above.

How to get into BIOS Setup for a Dell? (It's actually BIOS Setup utility)

Dell uses different keys on the keyboard for their different models.

A) The Dimension models usually use either the DELete key, or the F2 key.

B) The Inspiron models use the F2 key

C) The Latitude models (Desktop computer) use the F2 key

D) The Optiplex models may use either the F2 key, or the DELete key.

E) The Precision models use the F2 key.

Computer off, right after you press the Power On button, start tapping, (In 2 second intervals), on the appropriate key for your Dell model.

Note that I stated two different keys for some of the above models.

The procedure to find out which is the correct one, is to simply try one that is listed, and if it doesn't work, try the other one.

HOWEVER, you try using the first key.
Doesn't work?
Then you need to start all over.
You need to reboot the computer. (Restart)

Press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME.
This will restart, (Reboot), the computer, where you can try the other key.

Once you are in the BIOS Setup utility, you need to look for Boot Options.
There are many types of BIOS setup utilities, and Dell didn't/doesn't use just one.

You may see Boot Options in the top header of the BIOS Setup utility.
You may not.
If it isn't listed at the top, scroll down to the listing similar to,
Advanced BIOS Options, and open it.

[In the BIOS Setup utility you can no longer use your mouse.
You will use the Up/Down Arrow keys to highlight the area you wish to open, and then press the Enter key]

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
