F11 will load up the setup to restore factory settings to the computer, meaning all data will be lost. If you need further help, tell em and I will begin troubleshooting.

How do I reset the bios cause when I enter the setup wont let me click on it


When you go into BIOS Setup Hector, you can no longer use your mouse

You have to use the Keyboard

When you go into BIOS Setup you are automatically in the Main menu

To go on..........
There are 3 main BIOS manufacturers. Some smaller ones too, but doubt they wrote a BIOS program for your laptop.

Phoenix, Award, and AMI.
Award merged with Phoenix now.

There are also different versions produced by EACH BIOS manufacturer.
Therefore I cannot just start guiding you, without knowing.

Some examples however......

This style has the menu's across the Top.
One example - Main / Advanced / Security / Power/ Boot / Exit

Use the Left Arrow key to highlight the menu you want, then press the Enter key.
The navigation guide is at the bottom, and to the Right.
DOES NOT state navigation guide.

Tells you how to navigate around in BIOS, and how to make changes, and Save Changes.

Same thing for a BIOS Setup example, that has the menu's listed i n an order.

Standard BIOS Features (Standard CMOS Features)
Advanced BIOS Features
Integrated Peripherals
Power Management Setup
PnP/PCI Configuration
Etc.

Use the Down Arrow to highlight the menu you want, then press the Enter key.
The navigation guide at the bottom, tells you the key to press, to make changes.
THEN Save Changes.

IF you do Not Save Changes, it will be like you have done nothing at all.
It's because you HAVE done nothing at all. Just looked around, unless you save changes.

[Usually the Page Up or Page Down key; or the Minus ( - )
or Plus ( + ) key; is to make changes.
Change Value ]

You may see F12 to save changes, or a Y/N, or Yes/No

The Y is just shown as an upper case Y for clarity. Press the lower case y.
Then press the Enter key.

If everything goes bad:
Look at the navigation guide at the bottom, in BIOS Setup.
You will see a key listed to press, that is Load Default Settings.
Usually an F6, but don't quote me on that.

You made a boo-boo in BIOS Setup?
Go back into BIOS Setup. Find the Load Default Settings key.
Press it, then the Enter key.
Now you are back to square 1.

Reset CMOS on IBM 2847


  1. cmossave.jpgEnter CMOS setup.
  2. In CMOS setup look for an option to reset the CMOS values to the default setting or an option to load the fail-safe defaults. With many CMOS setup screens there will be a function key to do this; for example, the F5, F6, F9, F11, or F12 key like shown in the picture to the right. Other setups may actually list an option that you can arrow over to using the arrow keys and press Enter.
  3. When found and selected you'll likely be asked if you're sure you wish to load the defaults press Y for yes or arrow to the yes option.
  4. Once the default values have been set make sure to Save and Exit and not just exit.

Reset the BIOS on a Compaq server 740 jumpers settings


Don,t do that insatead:

Nothing happening


Hi,

When you start up the laptop, tap the F2 or F10 key like a piano in four four time and see if you do not get a bios setup screen, sometimes called a System Setup Screen. If you do post back to me as soon as you can and await my instructions, but basically you want to page through the setup screens until you find a setting for the external display default. Change this back to the laptop panel. It is probably set to an external display monitor or LCD panel.

On your keyboard are special keys you are probably familiar with. These are used in conjunction with the Fn key. To activate an external monitor and turn off your LCD display, you would press the Fn key + the F key that has an icon on it in the same color as the Fn keytop. The icon for the external monitor looks something like this |O| with the circle here being replaced by a rectangle. Often this is just replaced with two rectangles, one filled with shade one not. The F Key is almost always the F5 key.

To test this, start your computer, then press the Pause key. Then press the Fn key plus F5 or which ever key it was that you found with an icon as I attempted to desribe.

My guess this is what has happened, the alternate external display is activated and this needs to be changed. Sometimes you have to go into the System setup pages and tell the laptop you are on the Panel display by default and not the external monitor, otherwise you will have to press the Fn key sequence every time you boot.

Let me know how you make out.

Worldvet
