Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Emachine Can you help me with my friend's emachine t2895? i cant enter BIOS, how do u? i tried all the f keys, tab, del, ins, shift, nothing each time. i tried closing the comp and opening again but nothing. It seems clear now that the real problem is that the cpu is unable to read the keyboard after the computer starts. We know it is in working condition because if we press a directional arrow key, the computer will go from off to on. However, the original boot device should have been set to hard drive, but it somehow has managed to go to DVD drive as boot 1, CD-RW drive as boot 2, Floppy A as boot 3, and either no boot 4 or hard drive as boot 4. I tried an XP cd in both cd drives, the CPU could not boot up. Then i tried an older win 98 bootup disk. This you could call "successful", the CPU read it and was able to give the options: 1. boot from hard drive, 2. Boot from cd-rom. From here i knew the keyboard was not being detected, because i was unable to try and select either one. As far as another keyboard, i tried an HP one i know to be in working condition (ps/2) and a wireless usb one, which is also in working condition. Neither of them could be detected, and i could not select "boot from hard drive" or even "boot from cd-rom". For the same reason, it is impossible to enter BIOS because the keyboard and mouse are not detected. I have even tried switching the two PS/2 plugs (mouse w/ keyboard and vise versa), as instructed by someone else. This has not helped. If i am able to make the keyboard and mouse detected in any way, i will be able to enter BIOS and fix the problem. Please help me in figuring out this problem.

Emachines screen says no bootable device insert boot disk. I have no boot disk


This error indicates that the system is not able to find a boot-able device to load the Operating System. It could be something as simple as a disconnected hard drive, or it could even be a corrupt hard drive.

You can check if the hard disk is being detected in the BIOS. The key to enter BIOS in E-machines systems are Tab, Del or F2.

If the hard disk is being detected in the BIOS, it could be a faulty hard disk. You can try booting from the recovery partition by pressing Alt+F10 when starting up the computer. If you're able to get into the Recovery Partition, you can try a recovery, but you might lose all your data. If you're not even able to get into the Recovery Partition, you'll need to get the Windows disc for installing the Operating System again.

You can refer to these links for further information:

Default boot order for emachine laptop 732


Step 1:
All computer systems go through a set of instructions called the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) when they are turned on. The BIOS checks all of the hardware and software installed on the computer to make sure they are working properly before loading the operating system. You may need to access the BIOS menu periodically to find out the current version of the BIOS you have if there are upgrades available. The command you use to access the BIOS settings on an Emachines computer will vary depending on the specific model you have.

Access the Start menu and click "Shut Down." Select the "Restart" option. Wait for the Emachines logo to appear on the screen as the computer begins booting up again. Press the "Tab" key when the logo appears and see if the computer switches to the BIOS menu. Press the "Escape," "Delete," or "F2" keys if the "Tab" key doesn't take you to the BIOS menu screen. Use the right arrow key to highlight the "Main" entry and press Enter. Scroll down to the heading labeled "BIOS version." Check the long string of numbers and letters under the "BIOS version" heading to locate the current BIOS version your Emachines is using. Press the "F10" key to exit the BIOS menu screen and finish booting up the computer's operating system.

Ideapad Z560 neither accessing BIOS setup or is starting normally


Your bios seems corrupted. You will probably need to reflash from a thumb drive which is bootable. The F2 should get you to booting screen to access the thumb drive to boot from to flash the bios.

When i open my laptop it doesnt display something like press del or f3 to enter bios setup... I cant acess my bios.. NEED HELP


Try F6 or try another function key (one at a time please) when you first turn it "on". Be careful when messing with BIOS, write down what you change first and then change it. This way you can change it back, in most cases. Read the manual on the Toshiba site, if you want to cut the chase to find out which function key it is.

Have a friend that can't boot his computer to windows xp


Before trying to use any of Dell-net's suggestions, we've got to get you into the bios.

It looks generally like this:

You should see a message displayed when you start the computer that says press "Del or F2 or F10" to enter setup.

Once we get here, we can proceed.

Can not get laptop to enter bios


On many of the MPC laptops, the bios can be brought up at boot by pressing the F2 key. Generally, while booting, the screen will show you the button to push. Here are some more of the most used key combinations you can also try. On our mpc support site, there is no manual available yet for this model. Also, mpc laptops have the capability to lock out the bios at users request so many used models obtained cannot be changed. We'll have a new support site for mpc up this summer. Details at mpcsupport@cox.net
Most of the time during boot-up the key (combination) will be shown. If it is not, then you could try the following key combinations:
  • Del
  • F1
  • F2
  • F10
  • Ins
  • Esc
  • Ctrl+Alt+Esc
  • Ctrl+Alt+Enter
  • Ctrl+Alt+Ins after Ctrl+Alt+Del
  • Ctrl+Ins
  • Ctrl+Alt+S
  • Ctrl+S
  • Ctrl+Shift+Esc
  • Shift+Ctrl+Alt + Num Pad Del
  • Ctrl+Esc
  • Ctrl+Alt and +

Emachines


Make sure the power is completely off. Turn the power back on. Try using Esc key, F1, or the delete key. If you press the wrong key, it will give yoiu a keyboard error indicating an option to press the correct key. I'm pretty sure one of those keys will work on an emachine.

Let me know.
