I just built a new machine and at bot, by default, the logo covers everything that would normally be shown. so i blindly kept del pressed when starting and then i could be able to enter BIOS and switch that logo off! (it took quite a while to boot up, probably because everything is at autodetect? but it took at least 2 or 3 minutes)

Need help figuring this out. Complex!


Configuring your computer to boot from a USB drive allows you to boot into a separate operating system stored on a bootable USB drive.
This is handy when needing to troubleshoot a computer or access the hard drive without booting into the main operating system.
In order to boot from a USB drive, your computer's motherboard and BIOS must support USB booting.
If they do, then a simple tweak to the BIOS settings is all you need to do.

Shut down your computer and allow it to completely power off.
Insert your USB drive into an open USB port on your computer.
For ease of access, try to insert it into a front port if you have one.
Turn on your computer and enter the BIOS menu.
When your computer first boots, the manufacturer's logo will appear on the screen.
On the bottom of the screen is a note telling you which button to press to enter the BIOS.
Quickly press the button to enter the BIOS menu.
All manufacturers are slightly different, but some common buttons for entering the BIOS are F2, F10, F12, ESC and DEL.
If you are unsure, refer to the owner's manual that accompanied your computer.
Use the arrow keys to scroll down to the boot device menu.
It will be titled differently on different computers, but look for something like "Boot Order" or "Boot Devices."
Press the enter key to enter the boot menu.
Scroll down to "USB Drive" and set it as the first boot device.
Exit out of the BIOS menu and reboot your computer.
When your computer boots up it will boot from the USB drive first.

Disable intergerated video card to allow for pci card to function


You need to access the BIOS to disable the on-board video. Do you have Windows 7 installed or have you upgraded to Windows 8?

For Windows 7, turn off the computer and then turn it back on. After pressing your on switch press Delete repeatedly to access the BIOS. (Some computers use Tab or another key, you should see a screen indicating the correct key.) If Windows starts to load, try again. (I usually have to try 3-4 times to press the key at the correct time following the POST.)

For Windows 8, the boot sequence can be too fast to hit the key. Use the Advanced Restart option. Access the Charms menu and choose Settings > General > Advanced Startup. Alternatively, Charms > Settings > Power > press Shift and then select Restart. This should give you a Boot options menu and you'll be able to access the BIOS from that.

On my machine, I need the Advanced BIOS and then the System Agent Configuration. Then I select Initiate Graphics Adapter. Your BIOS may be slightly different. Go through your VGA graphics for disabling the on-board graphics and enabling the correct PCI/PCI-e graphics option.

I hope this helps.

None of the keys work on hp logo screen F10, f11. f9. esc system won't boot from hard drive or cd


Hi,

are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

Won't boot up. the xp logo shows up and it goes to the advanced startup screen. no matter what i choose ( safemode) etc.., it won't boot up. it just keeps on rebooting.


It's an open case... could be practically anything!
First check in the BIOS the configuration for the SATA controller. Try changing it to Native or Compatible (if possible) and see if it boots up.

Next, I would do a Repair installation using the Windows installation disc.

If setup fails in the middle it indicates a hardware failure.
* Do a bad sectors check/repair using HDD Regenerator.
* Try using different memory modules (RAM) and/or other power supply.
* Remove any non-crucial add-in cards such as modems, PCI USB, etc. and see if it helps in any way.
* Try replacing the graphic card or use the onboard one instead (if exist).

Good luck!
Pelu.

Unable to boot up - NIC failure message appears when attempting to startup. Can't start in Safe mode


Try to change the boot sequence or set your bios to defaults. Restart the computer. tap f2 on the dell logo. Press alt and F together. press alt and B together. Press Y if you get a prompt to 'save changes and exit?'.

If it still doesnt work. go back to the bios. restart. tap f2 on the dell logo. go to 'Integrated devices'. disable the network interface card'. Press Alt and b together. then try to boot the computer. Pls post back if it works.

No signal input


this sounds like fried graphics card... the clue being the error message before it died,

Does the PC boot so that you can see the Bios Screen, (the very first info that displays) the BIOS screen does not use the windows drivers and would be unaffected if a driver failure occurs,

if this is the case then press f8 on boot to select SAFE mode so you can remove/replace the graphics drivers (in device manager)

if you cannot get bios or safe mode, then try reseating your graphics card first as it may have just worked it way out of its slot (due to expansion of card/slot as system heats/cools)

if this fails to work then a replacement of the graphics card is probably what is required.
