Always the same variables, deppending on the model...
just try one or the other or all together... rapidly and insistantly imediately when laptop is starting.

DEL, F1, F2, F10, CTRL+ALT+ESC .... or just slide your finger all over the Function keys F1 to F12... because It could be any of those combiantions.

If you're trying to get to the bios set up, when the initial Toshiba screen comes up it will tell you what to press for the set up towards the bottom of the screen.

Screen showing setup is starting services and want do anything else


When your computer won't boot past the title screen or start-up screen, it usually means you have software problems or a virus.
Almost all Acer computers come preinstalled with a Windows operating system, which allows you to troubleshoot the operating system before locking up during the start-up screen.
Whether your problem is hardware or software-related, this technique allows you to access your desktop to retrieve all the items you want from your hard drive before completely reinstalling your operating system.

Click the power button. Within the first 10 seconds, a BIOS keystroke should pop up.
The keystroke to access the BIOS is usually the "ESC"+"SHIFT" keys.
"F8" is also an option for getting to the BIOS.
After keying the keystrokes, the BIOS screen is displayed.
Navigate through the BIOS system, which is the first system that your computer accesses.
The BIOS contains several commands and options to scroll through to modify various ways to start up your computer or reinstall the entire system.
It contains the booting options of your computer.

Navigate to the desired option with the arrow keys and select "Start in Safe Mode."
Safe mode is an operation your computer can run in which it doesn't use full capacity of your computer's hardware or software, but allows you to navigate to your computer's desktop and hard drive, regardless of an existing virus.
Restart your computer in Safe Mode and wait for it to boot.
After navigating to your desktop, begin dragging and dropping any information you want to save onto an external hard drive or USB thumb drive before the virus corrupts the files.

Access cmos hp pavillion a200n


Exactly what are you trying to do? Are you talking about the Bios or System Setup? if so just reboot your computer and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to start again.

If you are talking about the CMOS battery that is on the motherboard: Remove the power cord, Remove the case, turn the computer on it's side and look inside for a shiny nickle size battery and use a small flat head screw driver to pop it out. The most common size is CR2032 and you can purchase it anywhere for $5 or so.

After replacing my hard drive my laptop hp compaq 6720 is asking for a power on password Ive never put one in


Using Computer Setup to Reset CMOS

To reset CMOS through Computer Setup, you must first access the
Computer Setup Utilities menu.

When the Computer Setup message appears in the lower-right corner
of the screen, press the F10 key. Press Enter to bypass the title
screen, if necessary.

-- If you do not press the F10 key while the message is displayed, you
must turn the computer off, then on again, to access the utility.

A choice of five headings appears in the Computer Setup Utilities
menu: File, Storage, Security, Power, and Advanced.

To reset CMOS to the factory default settings first set time and date,
then use the arrow keys or the Tab key to select File > Set Defaults
and Exit. This resets the soft settings that include boot sequence
order and other factory settings. It will not, however, force hardware
rediscovery.

See the Desktop Management Guide on the Documentation CD for
further instructions on reestablishing passwords. For instructions on
Computer Setup, see the Computer Setup (F10) Utility Guide on the
Documentation CD.

For more details and pictures see the help pdf:

How to reset cmos or bios


Hello Friend,

There are a few ways.
The easiest way is to enter the BIOS setup screen, and select the option to reset to default settings, it should be easy to find or it would be on the save changes sections.

If you can not access the BIOS setup screen, it will take physical access to the computer's motherboard. This means you will need to open up the computer case. From here there are a few options that you can do.
change the the CMOS jumper to reset.
Press the CMOS reset buttion
Or remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes.
Please note that not all manufacturer have a jumper setting or cmos reset button. Also a CMOS battery looks like a button battery.
Also if you are going to open up the case, make sure the computer is off, unplugged, and if this is a laptop the battery must be removed. Good Luck!

How do I reset my Gateway LT20 Netbook Series back to the factory settings?


Very simple! You need to go into Cmos for the setup which is usualy F2 on boot. Once in the setup you go to the end page whwere it asks you if you want to restore factory defaults. Simply click on it then press save and exit. If F2 does not work on the boot to access Cmos setup then look at the screen as it starts to boot and it will usualy tell you what function key is for setup. Good luck Phil

How disable my bios memory dump and bluescreen thans you


These controls are located in a part of the system called "BIOS Settings", "BIOS Menu", "CMOS settings", "CMOS setup" or some similar variation. This should be covered in your user manual.

You usually enter "BIOS Settings" menu by pressing a specific key or keys during the beginning of the boot-up process. The specific key(s) to press are usually mentioned in a corner of the display as the system boots. They should also be in the manual. It is sometimes the "F2" key, or "Del", or a combination like "Ctrl+S" keys.

Once you've entered the menu, you'll see it provides many parameter settings organized in "pages". Basically, walk through the on-screen prompts until you see the settings having to do with cacheing and shadowing.

Every system and even current BIOS version has a different way to present these data, so we generally can't give you a specific keystroke-by-keystroke set of instructions. Again, your user manual should detail this information.

If you don't have a current user-manual, you should be able to go to the motherboard or system manufacturer's website to download a copy. It will usually be in .pdf format which will (in order to be able to read it) require a free .pdf reading application like Adobe Reader or Foxit.

I installed an AMI Bios in place of my AWARD Bios when it crapped out and now I cant access the CMOS setup.Please asssist Also every time I restart I have to reset the CMOS and remove the keyboard othewise...


WHY did you do that???? BIOS systems are customised by the motherboard manufacturer and cannot be changed, only updated to versions available from the manufacturer directly. CMOS  will not be accessible unless you revert.
