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.

I need to reset my bios password


Hello, locate the small round CMOS battery on the motherboard and take out the battery. Replace it after about 5 minutes and you can then reset your password. YouTube has videos to help locate your brand of computer's CMOS battery.
Open the computer case and find the battery on the computer motherboard, verify that it is accessible and can be removed. Today, most computers use a coin cell CMOS battery.

Reset bios 4052lci cmos 2310


Your computer's BIOS screen can be incredibly useful when you need to make certain hardware or system configurations.
How to access the BIOS on your laptop varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model.
Even though Acer laptops are created by the same manufacturer, not all models access BIOS in the same manner.
While accessing the BIOS setup screen in and of itself is not difficult all you need to do is press a key the difficulty is in figuring out which key to hit.
Restart or power on the laptop.
Hit the "Pause/Break" key the moment the Acer boot screen (not the OS start-up screen) appears.
If the OS start-up screen appears before you can hit Pause/Break, you will need to restart the laptop.

Press "F2" or "Del" to access the BIOS set-up screen.
Depending on the age of your Acer laptop, you may need to instead press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Esc" simultaneously to access BIOS.
Using the arrow keys navigate failsafe or optimized defaults press F10 to safe to cmos and exit to restart.

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.

When I turn the laptop on I see the Toshiba screen for just a second and then it instantly goes to this lovely black screen that says password= How this got there I have know idea. Can anyone help?


Dear beanbean,
This "lovely black screen" is a BIOS password screen. This shows up because somebody has set a boot-up password in the BIOS Setup. If you're lucky, the BIOS Setup is still unprotected, and you can access it as follows:
When you turn it on, look for something that says "Press [button] to enter Setup" or "Press [button] to enter Setup Utilities." Press the corresponding button on your keyboard, and you should enter BIOS Setup.

Now two things can happen. Either you are permitted to access Setup, or you are prompted for the password.
If you can access Setup, navigate to the Security tab and clear all set passwords.If not... then you can either reset BIOS by unplugging the computer, taking off the back, and removing the CMOS Battery (unrecommended), or you can call Toshiba support and ask for the master password (Most manufacturers have a master password, which will allow you to access Setup and remove the boot-up password)
Hope this helps,Ericthecmh

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:

--under 2 B for the procedure to clear the BIOS password.

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.

Hit what key to get into bios? are there restore keystrokes to restore?


Usually, for Compaq laptops, they Keystroke is F10. If this doesn't work you need to upgrade your BIOS in order to be able to do that. To do so, download this file: ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp10501-11000/sp10870.exe Download the file, create a diskette from it. Then boot from the diskette. Be very careful and make sure that no power loss occurs.
You might turn the notebook into a door-stop otherwise.

2.) Whatever you do, I would suggest to check whether access to BIOS-Setup with F10 on startup still works.
If not, the DIAGS partition where Diagnostics- and Setup-software is store would be missing.
