Question about iBuyPower Gamer Extreme 573D3 Phenom II X4 965(3.4GHz) 4GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 6850 ... PC Desktop

1 Answer

When I start my computer, I'll get a black screen with a bunch of text with "American Megatrends" as the header. The screen is unusual, and on the bottom it says "CPU fan error!, press F1 to continue." If I simply press f1 and ignore it, my computer eventually shuts off, and restarting my computer doesn't get my display back, I have to wait for a few minutes. Now, the fan actually works and spins at normal speed, so i have no clue what the issue is

You need to plug in your CPU fan. The CPU fan is VERY important in that it constantly cools your processor, making sure your computer doesn't over heat. If the computer runs and the fan isn't running, the CPU will over heat and cost you hundreds of dollars.
Turn off the power Unplug your computer Open up the case of your computer Find your CPU fan Find the cord coming from it Find the plug on your motherboard labeled CPU fan Plug it in there Plug your computer back in Turn it on

How to Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password using Software:


!BIOS is a freeware utility which is designed to be a whole BIOS and security suite. It has the ability to decrypt the passwords used in some of the most common BIOS makes such as Award, Phoenix, American Megatrends, IMB etc..<br /> It also has the ability to brute force the password (known as "blasters"). However, this method is dangerous and can result in some unexpected and unwanted results. Note: Because of this applications password cracking abilities, some antivirus software may report it as a virus/trojan. This is a false positive.<br /> To start using !BIOS, reboot your computer and take note of the BIOS type and version you are running. For example, If your motherboard uses Award BIOS you should look for the text "Award Medallion BIOS 6.0&prime; or something similar.<br /> Download !BIOS <a href="http://www.technibble.com/downloads/misc/BIOS320.EXE">from here</a> and save it to your desktop. Then, open a DOS command windows by going to <i>Start &gt; Run</i> and type: <i>cmd</i><br /> Once you see a black screen in front of you, type: <i>cd desktop</i><br /> You should now see something like: <i>C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Desktop&gt;</i><br /> Now type the name of the file you just downloaded, if you haven't changed the name just type in: <i>bios320.exe</i><br /> <a href="http://www.technibble.com/articlecontent/2007/12/bios320.jpg"><img src="bios320.thumbnail.jpg" /></a><br /> Use the down arrow and choose "Crackers" and then press the right arrow. Using the up and down arrows, select the BIOS that the motherboard is using and press Enter.<br /> You should now see a menu asking what you want to crack, in most cases its the Supervisor or System Passwords you want to crack, so <i>press the 1 key on your keyboard</i>. It will then show you another menu asking how you want it to be cracked. Option 1 is pretty good so try that first by pressing the 1 key on your keyboard. You should now have your BIOS password.<br /> Reboot the computer, enter the BIOS and try it out.<br />

How do i change the boot order in bios on a clientpro 385 running xp?


Each retail manufacturer sets the BIOS screens up a bit different with different headers, but I can give you a generic "what to look for". Judging from your question, I am guessing that you already know how to access the BIOS setup screen in your computer. There will be a header which may be titled, "boot", "Boot Setup", etc. Sometimes under the old American Megatrends BIOS screens the boot order is found under the Storage Drives section, with other BIOS screens it may be different. I will use a Phoenix BIOS for an example. In general, here is what you do:
1. Restart the Computer and enter the BIOS Setup Utility; this is done by tapping a key repeatedly, usually the DELETE key (but not always).
3. Locate and Navigate to the Boot Order Options in BIOS
4. Make Changes to the Boot Order
5. Save Changes to the BIOS Setup Utility
6. Confirm Boot Order Changes and Exit BIOS
7. Start the Computer With the New Boot Order

I will use an example (I hope this website allows multiple pictures to upload, but here I go):
The first screen will look something like this, with a general posting of your components:
63649b72-4cb6-43bc-a443-d617d897cc2d.jpg


Tap your right arrow key to move this hilight over to the "Boot" header in the top, blue header bar (as below):
40b9c75e-09c2-4cc7-a7d2-568a69854882.jpg


Now you have to figure out how this manufacturer set it up; usually guidelines are in the right column to help you, but the general rule is that you hilight the hard drive and (somehow) move it up to the top for the first boot device. Sometimes you hilight "Hard Drive", then press "Enter" and it gives you more options for moving it to 1st boot device. Other times you may be able to directly move it from this screen (above) by pressing a different key. Just work with it and eventually you will figure it out. If you still have the original manual that came with the computer they may (or may not) give detailed instructions.
When you finally get it configured, be sure to save it. This is usually done by pressing F10 key, it will ask you if you want to save settings, press Yes and you are done. If you need additional help, I hang out with a bunch of other techs at the (free) compute help forum, www.suggest-a-fix.com This website is not set up for easy back n' forth communication. Hope this helps you.
