Try to turn off the laptop. Remove the cables and battery on it. Then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Then reinsert the cables and battery on it. Turn it on and press F2 instead of F1 for BIOS setup....

Laptop not used for some years. could enter bios OK to reset Replaced U/S CMOS battery with no problem. Restarted............ Message press F1 ibm bios setup press F11 to invoke IBM product recovery...


I received an IBM laptop with same issue a few months back. The error message due to the drained out CMOS RTC (coin-cell battery), which retains and other BIOS settings.
The system is OK and all you have to do is to get the CMOS/RTC battery replaced by the a professional.
Good Luck!

Cannot seem to find how to enable the sata ports. I've tried all the solutions suggested with no good outcome.


With the SATA drive properly attached to the cable, try clearing the NVRAM (CMOS). By clearing the NVRAM (CMOS), the system will redetect all the installed hardware including your new drive. Just follow the procedure I have outlined below. After the clearing of the NVRAM (CMOS) you may get a warning at boot up about the Diskette Drive if you do not have a floppy drive installed in the system. If that happens, just go into the BIOS Setup and disable the option for the Diskette Drive. The error message will be gone on the next reboot.

  • Reboot system and enter the BIOS Setup by pressing F2.
  • Turn on Caps Lock, Scroll Lock and Num Lock.
  • Press ALT + E then ALT + F (should hear beep) then ALT + B
If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact me again.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time

Cant get 4600i started. powers up but will not get past intro screen. screen shows F1 to continue and when i press F1 it tells me to press it again to retry reboot, F2 for setup options.


you need to go to cmos or bios setup, set all the date and time and proper boot setting there save and exit, it is a cmos or bios failure that causes these problems try replacing the cmos battery if the message still continues

Can't get into the bios for a presario 4716


This is what the Compaq site had to say about the BIOS utility for your system (Source: Compaq): • • • •You may have difficulty accessing the BIOS Setup utility screen, because you must press a specific key(usually F1) very quickly before the Windows screen appears. If you do not enter the BIOS Setup screen on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful.

To open the BIOS Setup screen:
1. Turn off the PC and wait about 5 seconds.
2. Turn on the PC.
3. When the first screen appears, press the F1 key on the keyboard. (You can press the key more than once.) The BIOS Setup Utility Main menu appears.
NOTE: On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.
4. Use the keyboard to navigate through the menus.
You may need to remove the battery and then back in.

Bootup Problem of Dell PE6650


Your NVRAM was corrupted (probably by a dead CMOS battery) or your hardware configuration has cnaged (deah boot disk, etc). Enter setup to see if the date/time has reverted to a previous date. If so, the CMOS battery needs to be replaced and the BIOS reconfigured for the server. Otherwise, check to ensure that your disk configuration is correct. If the battery is not dead and your disk configuration is incorrect, you may have a bad hard disk.

Plug & Play Configuration Error


this may not be your ethernet card that is causing the fault, it is probably a flat cmos battery (CR2032) disc shaped battery normally close to the memory slots. This will need to be replaced, it's a simple job, just remove side panel of tower and flip the battery out and replace, probably cost $3.00. You will then be prompted on the next boot up to press f2 to set the date and time and then save and exit again for a reboot
