How to boot from usb on a powerspec


PowerSpec computers, as do all personal computers, have a motherboard inside that provides power and support to every piece of hardware that makes up the entire machine.

When your computer is first turned on, a small chip on the motherboard that houses a small piece of software called the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) fires up before anything else and directs the startup processes for the rest of the computer.

By entering the BIOS settings, you can alter these startup procedures and control the power flow to certain components or stop them from starting up entirely.

The BIOS settings are only recommended for advanced users, as an improper change can stop your computer from starting up. Shut Down


Shut down your computer completely.
Do not make it hibernate or reset.

You need a fresh startup to enter the BIOS settings.
Waiting Period

Wait about 10 or 15 seconds after shutdown to allow the computer to become completely dormant.

Rebooting

Turn the computer back on and immediately begin pressing the "Delete" button on your keyboard at regular intervals (every two seconds).

Eventually the BIOS settings appear.

The display will look monochromatic and antiquated when compared to a modern Windows display.

This is typical of the BIOS setup screen.
Using the BIOS Menu

Using the keyboard arrow keys to move around the BIOS menu advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to USB press "Enter" to select options once they are highlighted.
Press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
and

Don't make random changes to the BIOS, as an improper setup can render your computer effectively useless.

My computer screen started to show horizontal lines a long time ago. It's not the computer, it's the screen because I had this screen on my computer and went to buy a new one. About 2 to 4 years later


Hr scello try to renew or install the screen card driver.

I think your pc is missing the driver.
When the driver is not correct or missing, you get a bad picture on your screen.

Visit the pc or graphic cards homepage insearch for the screen driver.

Good luck

My Dell Optiplex GX260 just keeps rebooting what could be the problem


A bad power supply will do this but ,

Try this.

This link is to the motherboard to this computer
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/sm/sysbrd.htm#1111216
If you can find #20 thats is called the reset jumper. All you do is have to remove the little plastic peice thats on the 2 pins and power the computer on wait for 5 seconds . Turn the computer off and place the plastic piece back in and it will reset the motherboard. Power the computer on and see if it still reboots. If it doesn't great. If not check all the connections in the computer .Re-seat everything. If not take it to a computer tech and have them test your hardware. Hope that helps.

When the computer comes on it says to enter a password


someone has set a bios password. Remove the side cover of the PC. (usually a couple phillips head screws on the back .
look inside on the mainboard (motherboard) for a small button battery like you might put in a watch or calculator. remove it for about 30 seconds, (usually just a small clip on one side holding it) , Replace it.
fire up the computer. removing the battery causes the computer to reset the password.

Computer will not load up - frozen on acer start screen?


Are you sure the monitor is plugged into the correct port? Also, check the monitor cable for bent pins. A small move shouldn't make this kind of difference. Eliminate that power strip and just plug the computer and monitor into an outlet.
