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.

Cant boot up EMachines T3882 no quick boot and f8 does nothing, what do i do?


If you can't get into the bios, you can't start a repair, when it's booting, continually press F2 to get the bios up, if that does nothing reboot an continualy press Del, this is for the bios menu and set the cd drive as first boot device.

If not continually press F8 on boot up this is safe mode, then when youre in highlight last known good configuration and press Enter.

Give this a try as your pc will not be set to boot from cdrom as default and will just try to boot into windows.

Press delete enter to set up so what can i do nothing is working


Sound you are trying to get into the BIOS, some use key F2,F8, or F10, it will say very fast what the correct key is, it might be very fast.

The first item is the key or key combination. The second is the model of PC or the maker of the BIOS. You'll see some companies listed many times, with different keystrokes. That's normal. (It's not that manufacturers can't make up their minds. It's just that they change suppliers and use different BIOS setups.)
Delete: AMI or Award BIOS.
Esc: Toshiba
F1: Toshiba; Phoenix; some IBM PS/1 models.
F10: Compaq.
F2: NEC.
Insert: IBM PS/2.
Tab: eMachines.
Reset button (press twice): Some old Dells.
Ctrl-Alt-+: Various computers.
Ctrl-Alt-?: Some old IBM PS/2 models.
Ctrl-Alt-Enter: Some Dells, others.
Ctrl-Alt-Esc: AST, Tandon, others.
Ctrl-Alt-Ins: Zenith PCs, Phoenix BIOS.
Ctrl-Alt-S: Phoenix BIOS.
Ctrl-Alt-Shift with Del (on number pad): Olivetti.
Ctrl-Esc: Many PCs.
Ctrl-Ins: Some IBM PS/2s.
Ctrl-S: Phoenix BIOS.
Ctrl-Shift-Esc: Tandon

Emachince t3604 with vista wont boot just a blank screen tried to get bios screen safe mode etc. but nothing shows on the monitor. n e advice?


Make sure --- turn power off, leave off for 30 seconds. Power up again, holding the F2 key down. This WILL take your eMachines into Setup (BIOS). If it doesn't then your keyboard is most likely defective. If it does get you to setup, press F10 and Enter. Reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del and this time hold the F8 key down ... just hold it down till something happens, choose Start in Safe Mode with Network Support. Again if F8 doesn't work probly says Keyboard is bad. This is for whatever Operating System you are using.

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.
