You can try to manually reset the CMOS by locating the CMOS jumper on the motherboard, unplugingg the computer and removing CMOS battery (small watch style battery). Move the jumper over to the empty and center pins. Re-install the cmos battery for a minute. Then remove the CMOS battery again and put the CMOS jumper back to it's original position. This should reset the bios. If you can get into the CMOS memory settings before the computer tries to boot to windows, you can use the reset option thru the BIOS. Get to the bios usually by hitting either the delete key or F2 key right after the computer starts up.

Sometimes, a computer will do this if a piece of hardware goes bad. So, you can try to remove all drives, except for the hard drive, from the motherboard and try starting the computer. If this works, you can connect one piece of hardware (CD drive, etc) at a time until you get the same problem to find the bad hardware.

There is a possbility that your motherboard is damaged, which is the reason for your symptoms. All you can do is use a process of ilimination to be certain.

Please let me know if this information is helpful and if I can assist you further. Please provide as much detail as possible so I can give you the best possible assistance. Also, I attempted to get some information on your particular board and was unable to find anything under N 15235. Is there any other identifying information on your board?

Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

None of the keys work on hp logo screen F10, f11. f9. esc system won't boot from hard drive or cd


Hi,

are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

I have a foxconn n15235 I get a blue screen F10 setup,esc Boot,F11 exc. Nothing happens How do I access the cmos. took battery out.

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to

cmos to restart (this is only a guide on how to enter BIOS)

it sounds like you have a faulty lead

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty


hope this helps

It sounds as though you might have a problem with BIOS.
You should remove your motherboard battery (little round silver disc) and if you can find (or Google motherboard model#) the CMOS reset jumper, you can remove the battery for 30 seconds and put it back in and reset the CMOS, then see if it boots. If it doesn't, you might need to flash the BIOS, which is not recommended unless you know what you are doing.
