I have a toshiba satelite L655-s5117 laptop and it won't boot up even when i try and boot from windows 7 disk it won't

Probably a faulty hard drive. go into the setup screen and verify the HD setting is correct. save your settings and reboot. if this doesn't solve it, then take out battery and disconnect power, remove hard drive and reconnect. try reboot. if none of that works, then replace hard drive and reinstall OS.

Mercury mother bord not loding satup manu with all f key and 'del' stop in start screen

1) Look at the bottom of the Mercury logo screen when it comes up.

2) Memorize or write down the -> enter BIOS Setup, or enter CMOS Setup key.

3) Restart the computer.

Let it go to Windows, then Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart.

Won't go to Windows? Hold down the CTRL and ALT and DELete keys AT THE SAME TIME. This will restart your computer.

AS SOON AS the monitor screen goes blank, (Windows is restarting), tap on the enter BIOS Setup key repeatedly.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

Hear a series of beeps? They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and you are causing them. Ignore the beeps.

Computer is off?

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the enter BIOS Setup (CMOS Setup) key.

The enter BIOS Setup window goes by F-A-S-T. The above method/s will get you into BIOS Setup.

. . . overclocking nightmare!!!

Motherboards, processors, and sdram must be timed properly to work together. Seldom have I found an overclocker who understands how timing works.

From your cryptic question it is not possible to offer a solution. Although in the United States, "won't give in," means to stand your ground, to prevail, stubbornness, to be uncooperative, failure to concede, continue to compete while injured, obstinacy in the face sound counsel, but I've never heard it used in reference to a motherboard.

I would suggest you make some reasonable settings in the BIOS setup program (hit del to run setup), and be patient. Microsoft Windows tracks previous boot outcomes, and uses the information to make adjustments in both hardware and software.

So, say your machine started to boot, but it froze or blue-screened. On the next boot Windows will make adjustments to hopefully improve the outcome.

If you make hardware-timing adjustments, Windows will already have planned the next boot, but now the user-configurable hardware settings have changed before Windows even gets hold of the machine!

Motherboards do the same thing. If the computer didn't start at all, but there were no beeps, the motherboard adjusts the timings so the computer can start.

After power-up, the BIOS might require you to run 'setup', but you can just hit 'esc.' As the BIOS turns control over to the operating system, it puts the timings back where you had them set (with exceptions), and Windows might even boot.

The conclusion is: be patient. Don't try to change a setting after every freeze or malfunction, unless you sure it must be changed. If two successive boot-ups fail, you probably need to show some mercy and loosen up on the timings.

My laptop is not allowing me to install OS (windows) i suggest mayb its bios securities now how can i remove the security

A) DO NOT post your email address. It's in the FixYa T.O.S.
(Terms of Service)

(Plus it's a worldwide forum. You are opening your email to all sorts of spam)

B) Are you trying to install the SAME operating system?
Example: Windows XP over Windows XP?

Windows does not like to be written over. A type of security.
It definitely does not like the SAME O/S being written over it.

(Same version and build)

Go to BIOS Setup, and to Boot Options.
In Boot Options make sure CDROM is set as the first boot device.

CDROM will be at the top of the list.

SAVE changes.

Your computer will now boot off of whatever is in the optical drive.

Need laptop manufacturer name, and Model Number, to try to guide you in entering BIOS Setup.

{ OR, soon as you turn the laptop on look at the bottom of the monitor screen. Look for;

A) enter Setup, or
B) enter BIOS Setup, or
C) enter CMOS Setup

There will be a key on the Keyboard to press, that is stated next to the above. (Example: enter BIOS Setup/ Delete, or enter CMOS Setup/F2)

Once you see the key, (Screen goes by very f-a-s-t), restart the computer.
(Press the CTRL key, ALT key, and DELete key, AT THE SAME TIME, to restart the computer)

As SOON as the computer restarts, start tapping on the key.
(Tap in 2 second intervals. If you hear a beeping, ignore it.
It is a Stuck Key Error Code )

You may want to try to reset the BIOS to DEFAULT setings.
If this does not work...Try this turn the pc on and then press F8 a few times to access controlled boot precedure. You will be given some options and you should select "Start Windows in Safe Mode" . Hopefully, you can boot and inspect you boot.ini file.

Hope this helps
