I changed a setting in the Bios because I can't get any network adapters to work. Anyway when I try to boot the computer will not go past the first screen. Pressing DEL does nothing. It won't boot from the support CD.

Resetting the BIOS to it's factory state usually helps. I changed a setting in the Bios because I can't - adracamas_0.png move the jumper from 1/2 to 2/3. Give it a sec to clear. Then move it back to 1/2.

Load the default settings in your bios. Then make sure your disc drive is the first boot device. Try restarting. If it doesnt work put your windows disc in and repair your computer. If it does start and you get into windows, download and install all of your drivers. These can be found on your software disc or the internet at the motherboards website. If you have to get them from the website get a flash drive go to another computer that has internet and download the files onto the flash drive. Then install them on your computer and you should be up and running.

When I turn on my Dell Inspiron 910 mini, it says tht media test failure, check cable. Operating system not found. Can somebody help me? I dnt know what to do


check the Boot order in the BIOS and make sure that is isn't set to Boot from LAN or Network first as the error "PXE *** Media Test Failure" ( where *** refers to the NIC card ID )

does in fact refer to a pc that is trying to Boot from the LAN or Network first.

If your boot order is set to boot from your Hard Drive first then I would suspect a bad Hard Drive.


Reboot your computer.

This is necessary, as entering the BIOS utility requires that you be outside of your normal operating system.


Press the key indicated during the startup messages to enter the BIOS.

This is traditionally either the "Esc / Delete" or of the "F2" key, but it can be anything, so pay attention to the screen as your computer loads up.


Navigate through the BIOS menu screens, using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter to which device has been set to boot from.


using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults this will change the boot order press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps

My laptop is not working and just keeps comin up with this messsege and i lookedup online and tried all the things it said to do on thr BOOT Settings, but it just keeps coming up with the messege:- Intel...


The computer is booting up using the ethernet. Usually this boot up is used on one of the workstations of a Network. The computer should boot up on the hard drive. Its just that the network is priority over the hard drive. For you to change this you must configure the Boot options on the BIOS.
1. Go to the BIOS settings 2. Go to anything that associates with Boot Options 3. Make the CD/DVD ROM be the first boot device 4. Make the Hard drive be the second boot device 5. Make other Boot Devices retain to 3rd and so forth Save the changes and restart the computer 6. If all fails make sure that the hard drive is detected on BIOS if not 7. Try to disconnect the hard drive and put it back in Go to the BIOS see if it is detected 8. If not replace the Hard drive

Compaq presario 2594 us laptop , after boot-up get message ( operating system not found) tried recovery disc, will not formate hdd , will get this message in windows set-up , SET-UP...


I've gist had the same problem after flashing bios ...
go to BIOS and change the SATA mode to IDE. it worked for me.
original instructions:
also You have to turn OFF (disable) the boot from network. The error your seeing is result of the network boot rom not finding PXE server to boot from. Again, be sure to disable boot from network.
PLUS it seems if only 128 MB is showing as memory then the memory sticks might be damaged and not able to retain information/data to complete the installation process. Best take them out clean it properly & replace & try again. Nothing to do with BIOS!

My Belkin F7D4101 wireless adapter stop computer booting up when if is not disconnected at shut down


It is very common for the bios to try booting from usb devices, this can be changed in the settings, go into the bios (one of the F keys that it asks for on bootup) and then look in the boot order, look for usb boot and disable it so it doesnt try to boot from usb. This should solve your problem.

Upon booting I get this error. for realtek


PXE means Pre-Boot Execution Environment. You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error.

You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system?

OS not starting properly


Your hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced. The whole thing about the network adapter is because your computer didn't see the hard drive's boot sector and tried to do a network boot, which you aren't set up for. So you got your error. When you turned that off in the BIOS, you get a partial boot of the hard drive but it reboots because it is bad. You can *try* just re-installing the operating system, but chances are it will stop midway or even get all the way through before rebooting again.

Can't recognize wireless adaptor


RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, ON REBOOT, CLICK F10 WHEN YOUR CHANGE BOOT OPTIONS SCREEN COMES UP. YOU MUST PRESS F10 QUICKLY OR IT WILL LOAD WINDOWS AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN. ONCE YOU GET INTO THE BIOS SETUP UTILITY GO TO SYSTEM CONFIGURATION, SCROLL DOWN TO BOOT OPTIONS CLICK ENTER. GO DOWN TO INTERNAL NETWORK ADAPTER BOOT AND ENABLE IT. THEN GO TO SAVE AND EXIT. AFTER YOU RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, CHECK IF THE WIRELESS IS WORKING. IF LATER IT FAILS AGAIN, GO BACK INTO THE BIOS SETUP, IF THE ADAPTER IS STILL ENABLED, DO A DIAGNOSTIC TEST FROM THE BIOS UTILITY. IT WILL DO A QUICK TEST (IT IS FAST) THEN IT WILL DO A COMPREHENSIVE TEST, THIS WILL TAKE AWHILE UNTIL IT FINDS THE PROBLEM. BE PATIENT IT WILL FIX IT!!! THE COMPUTER SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY SHUTDOWN WHEN IT FINISHES. WHEN YOU TRY TO TURN YOUR COMPUTER BACK ON, IT MAY NOT COME ON THE 1ST TIME, THIS IS OK TOO. JUST KEEP PRESSING AND HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON UNTIL IT COMES ON AND STAYS ON. NOW WHEN YOUR COMPUTER LOADS WINDOWS YOU WILL SEE YOUR WIRELESS ADAPTER IS WORKING.

The machine is attempting a network boot. You need to enter your BIOS setup program and change the settings to disable network boot or set it as last in the boot order (depends on the specific BIOS of the machine).

Password


that is because the password in question that you are trying to get past is the BIOS password most likely. Verify that your computer is turned off, remove power cord from back of computer, and find the jumper near the Bios chip on the motherboard. It will usually be close to the battery ( another option, temporarily remove the battery for about 30 seconds, then replace the battery into its proper position ). Be careful when you do this as some battery sockets are a pain to work with. Anyway in nearly all cases, the Bios reset jumper is located very close to both the battery and the bios chip ( firmware ). Removing the Bios reset jumper and positioning it one pin over from the initial position will usually reset the bios and get rid of the bios password requirement. Always put the bios reset jumper back into its initial position before re-appying power to the motherboard. Be careful not to leave anything loose lying around on the motherboard or in the case, else you might fry the motherboard..
Once you have successfully managed to get past the Bios password, then you should see the computer start to boot up normally and prior to Windows boot up and in the Bios routine you can configure the computer to boot to CD first. In many more modern situations, the motherboard is already configured that way.
