Problem: When I press "ON" I hear a jolt vibration, and an orange LED light turns on, the screen stays black. Nothing after that. Stays black for two minutes; then the screen lights in "night blue" on the background. (Please see picture at bottom) I HAVE TRIED: hard reset, tried going into the BIOS (by holding windows+B). No luck. Please help with steps to fix. Will appreciate it. Thank you.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello I have brought a used MSI wind laptop off of Ebay and it comes up with a message saying 'missing operating system' .
This isn't the problem at the moment cause when I try to access the bios, there is a password, which I don't know, I have looked around online and it all says that you can reset password with taking out the CMOS battery which I have done several times and even left it out for about an hour once, also they say to find the jumpers which there isn't any of on the motherboard.
This is pretty much what I have got, any suggestions:

Okay, so I was playing world of warcraft when my computer started to beep at me every once in awhile. Later it happened more often and my screen would flicker. I thought perhaps it was my video card overheating and that something was overclocked within bios so I reset the bios settings to default.
Then when it went to load it said booting from cd, remove media etc etc. Insert system disc.

Hello Having some serious issues as it seems we all have So here's the situation As a nerd truck driver I bought a laptop for skyping with the family and playing games Laptop Drive booting in BIOS Hard now first not recognized not Windows, was working fine one night and the next morning I start it up and windows won't boot Just gives me a blank screen with the infamous blinking cursor in the top left After searching the forums it appears I need the Win install discs which this computer did NOT come with I may be able to get my hands on a reinstall disc but I doubt it'll be a samsung laptop disc I was however able to make a recovery disc from my wife's Dell laptop I thought she had a reinstall disc but we can't find it My current problem and the most troubling is that now BIOS doesn't even show the HDD I checked the connections and they are fine and I was able to put the SATA drive in my desktop and copied all my important data to my desktop So I know the drive is good Nothing is corrupted Hard Drive first not booting Windows, now not recognized in BIOS and all partitions including the recovery partition is Hard Drive first not booting Windows, now not recognized in BIOS intact I can't figure out why the laptop isn't showing the drive in BIOS now though I've tried the recovery disc a second time but it doesn't seem to want to boot correctly now It worked fine when the HDD was recognized but now it's getting to the blinking screen then the cursor jumps to the bottom right and pixelates across the bottom of the screen like it's trying to load I can probably get my hands on a reinstall disc if I can download one or ask around tomorrow but right now I need to figure out the HDD problem Any ideas PS I know this has been covered NUMEROUS times but none of the other threads have been any help with these issues Any help would be appreciated
Ok, I got the recovery disc to boot again, but still don't have the HDD in BIOS yet. Only option that works in the recovery disc is the command prompt. searching for the HDD that way, but so far, I have only found D: which has the Dirs: Boot, and Sources, and a file called bootmgr. This is along with X: which is obviously the recovery disc. So far, I can't find anything else.http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/224541-hard-drive-first-not-booting-windows-now-not-recognized-bios.html
Hi there I have recently had to buy a new SSD a lovely drive not and Bios data SSD recognising booting from not hard GB Intel Cherryville after my old SSD decided to die on me I had an existing data drive with my files artwork on The problem is when I boot up it tries to load normally a few cursors blinks on a black screen and then dumps me onto the bios I have specified in the bios that I want it to boot windows from my new intel drive but Bios not recognising data hard drive and not booting from SSD the problem persists I believe the problem started from the changing of the boot drive The bios also shows the data drive in a list of plugged in devices but does not show it in the boot 'order' options in EZ mode The strange thing is the only way I can get Windows to Bios not recognising data hard drive and not booting from SSD boot properly is to choose my data drive as the boot device in the temporary boot choice menu Windows is on my Intel SSD though Another strange item in the EZ mode boot order menu is the inclusion of the DVD drive which was certainly not there before I should mention that I did try try and fix my old corrupt SSD in the registry and this could be contributing to the odd behaviour of my data drive and bios settings -I have an ASUS z k Motherboard -Windows home bit So if you could specifically advise me on how to remedy this boot problem I would be very grateful
It appears that you left the data drive connected when you installed Windows onto the SSD, and the MBR got written to the DATA drive.
There is no way around it but to redo the system, IMO.
There's a possibility that you could do something about it in a command prompt, like "rebuildmbr" after selecting the correct disk, the SSD, but I've never managed to do it.
I have updated from Excel 2003 / XP to Excel 2013 / Windows 8 Enterp 64 bit.
The new Excel appears to take longer just to move from 1 cell to the next, even on a blank workbook
I have a Mac Pro, using Parallels 8, and the XP / Excel 2003 works faster, both virtual machines are on the same computer:
The Mac is a Dual Quad Core, at 667 MH speed
I have assigned 2 CPU's to the Wind. 8 virtual machine, ( and just 1 in XP)
I'm testing these one at a time.
Why ? Is W8 slower
Is parallels W8 slower due to their interface?
Are there settings that could fix this?
Looking forward to the new software benefits, but hard to get past the speed issue.
Any body smarter than me out there on this? I'm sure there are.
Thanks in advance for any help or comments.
Well, Office 2013 uses GPU hardware acceleration to perform those unnecessary animations that looks cool to some users. From your experience, it looks like Parallels is not supporting the GPU hardware acceleration that Office 2013 uses. Try disabling GPU hardware acceleration from Excel options. You can also disable animations to further improve performance.

i had the system switch off. and unplugged. in the morning when i plug it back in, it comes up with an error in the bios, the date/time etc... is not set. i had to go in and set the time again, once it is set, it bootup fine, until it get's to the window's and it keep resetting itself.
anyone have any suggestion to why the bios got reset? the battery is dead?
right now i'm trying to get into safe mode to disable the "automatically restart" so i can see if the window reset is cause by the blue-screen-of-death.
I'm betting that you have a bad CMOS battery...
I have a Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W700(I5 Core) and i am trying to factory reset to the default settings again because of the stupid problems i am having on the tablet.
Here is the problem i am trying to get into the BIOS which is the 1 step on the Acer website but for some bizarre reason when it is completely off i press the Windows button and the power button to get in to the BIOS as it says on the Acer Website but it keeps going to the start menu/desktop now instead of going to the BIOS. :/
I have factory reset/hard reset on my Acer Iconia W700 a couple times and i never had this problem before, i gone in to the BIOS no problem!!!
Can someone help me please?? Thanks!!!

I m hoping someone can help as I have read many of the posts here and have tried alot of Booting hanging, no prob, reset things that I have read The Problem I am getting hanging at any time where the harddrive light is on continuously but the monitor is on standby I sometimes get the blue screen and other times it Booting prob, hanging, no reset just won t boot to the Windows start-up screen In all cases though when I do have a problem a simple pressing of the reset button does not do anything as the monitor never does come back on therefore no reboot Only after powering off and on a few times does it finally kick in I am on the same computer right now which leaves me to believe it Booting prob, hanging, no reset isn t a software or Windows problem but perhaps hardware either memory or video card I have not installed Booting prob, hanging, no reset any new hardware though I have tried the following unplugged all USB port plugs updated BIOS updated Video drivers Cleaned all spyware Virus scanned Restored to previous known Good date disabled all power options Any suggestions would be very helpful Thanks nbsp
i would say since it's that the monitor sometimes doesn't start it's a video problem. Nrmally if it's either a video problem or memmory you would hear a number of beeps. Instead of the normal short one. DO you hear any beeps whn it doesn't want to start? I have come acrossa couple of computers which seemed to have the prob that the monitor didn't wanna come out of stand by and it got solved simply by replacing the video card.

Hi Guys This is my first question here so I hope I m at the right place Little back story to my PC I got it pretty much exactly year ago It s custom-built although by the company I ordered it from This included the choice of them Overclocking it which I took Everything has been running smoothly until now Now my problem About a month ago Win did some rather big update Since that day everytime I boot up after a longer period of being turned off like a few PC crashing Settings cold, after reset? OC booting hours so most nights it takes PC crashing after booting cold, OC Settings reset? about min to just crash without any warning and restart I then get told that all settings were reset to default values and that previous overclock settings have failed I then get the options to load the default values or load the OC profile by the PC crashing after booting cold, OC Settings reset? company Now PC crashing after booting cold, OC Settings reset? no matter what I load it will run smoothly forever from there on The crash happens every single time without exception and after that it runs just fine for days if necessary without exception A quick restart also doesnt make it crash again only if it s turned off for a few hours Which leads me to believe it s not really a problem with the actual settings Especially since they worked just fine for a year and it all started with an OS update My Specs OS Win Pro -Bit Version paid MB MSI Z -GD CPU IntelCore i - K Ghz RAM x GB Kingstong HyperX Fury DDR - HD Samsung SSD EVO gb Seagate Barracuda TB Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX I uploaded screenshots of my OC settings aswell since I don t really know what s important http imgur com a KCIMs I m happy to provide any more Info you might need Thanks in advance and a happy new year - Drycee nbsp
OK, you have not included the most important part; your pw supply. Post the exact brand and model# of the pw supply.
Next overclocking does entail a degree of risk; parts work harder and their lifespan is shortened. Here is what I would do;
1 Return ALL settings to stock by clearing cmos [read your mb manual for detailed instructions for clearing cmos]
2 Once all settings are stock, boot windows and start running some stability tests ie prime95 or IBT [intel burn test] Both of these are free downloads.
3 I never build with msi boards however I do believe they [msi] has monitoring software to monitor temps and voltages. This should be on the support page for your board. Download and install the monitoring software.
4 With the monitor running, run prime95 for at least 10~15min. Check your temps and voltages while running prime95. Post those here.
Last thing. Kingston hyperX memory. There are a number of those; open the case and find out the color of the memory chips. Some of those need a higher vdimm [ram voltage] set in the bios/uefi.

You should have a setting in BIOS to give hard drives time to spin up. Look for "HDD delay" or something similar. You can also just disable quick startup, so the HD has time to spin up during the memory test.
I recently got my laptop back after having a new HDD fitted.The technician told me to reset my BIOS.Could anyone tell me if this was necessary and what difference it would make to my laptop?
The technician told me to reset my BIOS
To reset what option?
Or something along those lines. I was having RAM/CPU issues with my computer and everyone kept asking me "did you install all the drivers?"...of course I did! I'm not retarded! So the next thing they suggested is updating my BIOS. Alas, I did that, and now my BIOS won't even start up. If anyone can help me reset the BIOS or install new BIOS it would be greatly appreciated.
NOTE: I've tried putting the BIOS files on a CD/Flash Drive and it doesn't work. The manufacturer won't replace it because they say it's 'not their problem'. This is my last hope.
whats the process of resetting bios?
I accidentally disabled all the internal and external USB ports to my All in One touch screen. As a result I have no touch screen, no keyboard and no mouse control and can't get any. I pulled the CMOS battery and discharged the system but that doesn't seem to have reset it. There are only two jumpers that I can find on the board. I'm hoping one of these is a CMOS reset but I have no idea which one and I don't want to start randomly shorting things. Can anyone tell me how I reset the BIOS via the hardware? Thanks!
@Archer01?, welcome to the forum. I suggest that you go into the BIOS to do the reset: Tap "Esc" key as the computer boots / Choose BIOS setup / Reset default settings and Exit (May be a bit different wording.). This should do what you need.

Can anyone tell me how i can rest the Bios on a PC.I have heard it can solve wireless issues.Is there any truth to this?Desperate at this point.
i can't see how 'resetting the BIOS' could solve wireless issues (unless you have an onboard wlan controller that has been disabled in the BIOS)
you should provide detailed info on the real problem which i don't think is related your BIOS settings.
if you really want to 'reset the BIOS', there are 2 options:
1. open the computer case, refer to your main board manual, find the correct jumper switch to clear the CMOS on the mainboard and follow the instructions.
2. enter the BIOS setup utility and load the Default settings.

A while ago I tried to put a new HDD in my laptop and got a message saying something a long the lines that the disk wasn't recognised (forgot exact message)
I took the computer to my computer repair shop and they installed the HDD I asked them if it would be easy for me to do it and they said yes it was just a case of resetting the BIOS.
Can anybody please tell me how to reset the BIOS so I can install a new HDD?
I've installed HDD's in windows 7 machines and it was just a case of inserting the disk- I didn't have to mess with the BIOS!
Check your BIOS to see if the hard drive detection is set to "auto." If so, your hard drive should have already been detected. If your hard drive is not recognized by the BIOS, take it back to the repair shop. What makes you think the BIOS is not already recognizing your new HD? Did you try inserting the installation disk? If so, what happened?http://www.eightforums.com/drivers-hardware/27839-how-reset-bios-new-hdd.html
Hello! i want to reset BIOS for my advent 7094. How do i do it? pls help
I'm currently running Windows XP (Service pack 3) and recently there was a Power outage .
The Computer won't reboot and stays on a Blue Screen after the WINDOWS XP by MICROSOFT Message
Default settings can't be activated and sometimes the Curser does'nt move. A normal restart won't work either.
I've taken pictures of the on-screen messages if anyone needs to see them.
Can Images be uploaded to this Website ?.
The Machine is at the repair place now and I was told the 'Bios needed resetting'.
Assuming this happens again, how could the job be done at Home. Please be as detailed as you can.
I hope the operating system has'nt been damaged.
What exactly are 'Bios' anyway and why are they important ?.
How could loss of Electricity cause such a problem ?.
Hoping someone can help.
I recently upgraded my BIOS. The orginal was a dual BIOS from Award. Pheonix's eSupport (for a fee) provided me with an upgrade, which has worked fine. I have had a couple of strange system hangs, though. These have resulted in in my having to restart the system (as in turning it on and off). When I have restarted, the old BIOS is in place. I can easily fix this by re-flashing the BIOS, but does anyone have idea what is going on?
I have, obviously, checked the system for viruses but my checker (Norton 2003 with all the relevant unpdates) can't find anything.

What happens or changes when you reload the defaults in the BIOS setup utility?
it restores everything in the bios to it's original settings.<br>
for example: if you put a system password, it will reset that.. or the bios clock/date will be reset.

HelloI forgot the password to the bios. How can i reset it ?
Hi, Unfortunately, business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. If you Contact HP Business support they should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.

I garbage picked this old Optiplex GX 260. I upgraded the Ram to 1 gig, put in an old video card with no trouble at all. then I try to upgrade the Hard drive and it says 'primary hard drive 0 failure'.
I checked the jumpers on the hard drives the primary is set to DS (Primary) and the secondary is set to DS (Secondary). Hooked up the Ribbon Cable accordingly (was not easy, let me tell you). I've even checked the Bios settings and made sure that the order is cdrom, hard drive, floppy disk.
At this point I'm pretty sure the bios needs to be reset, but I can't find the jumper to do that (if its possible at all).
Usually resetting the bios is easy. But I have a dell dimension 4600c and I can't seem to reset the bios. Anyone know how ?

Hello,It is possible to have a tool created to reset the BIOS password. You would need to contact commercial support at 1-800-334-5144, and provide to them the UUID number, which can be found in the System Information section (press F1 on the Hp splash screen) in the preboot environment. You would also have to have a USB to put the tool on, and you should be provided further instructions after contacting the support line. -I am posting on my behalf, I hope this is helpful to you-

Hi, There was BIOS password set and don't have now.How do I reset the password?Model: Compaq 2150p Grately appreciate help from the community. Thank youRegardsSenthilkumar
Hi, Try the following. Shutdown the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and remove the battery. Remove the rtc cell from the system board - see Page 57 of your Maintenance & Service Guide. Hold down the power button for 60 seconds. Leave the machine like this for a few hours, then re-insert the rtc cell, plug in the AC Adapter ( leave the main battery out for now ) and start the notebook. Unfortunately, if this procedure doesn't clear the password, it probably indicates that 'Stringent Security' has also been enabled in the bios - if that's the case, there is no way of removing/resetting the password.

Those are not jumpers If you want to reset BIOS settings, you could just unplug power(cord off the PSU), discharge power by pressing the power button for 10 secs, then take the CMOS battery off, and wait for half an hour or so. Put those wires back their place. Refer to motherboard manual...

Best to try the Safe Mode to get into Windows and track this problem. Tap the Function 8 key when you start the machine and if you see "Disable automatic restart on system failure", highlight that one and hit Enter. If that isn't there, try Safe Mode with Networking.

I had a problem with 1 of my hard drives and i read somewhere that reseting the bios was the answser. After reseting the hard drive worked again but everytime I turn the power off the mobo the bios resets. Ive tried a new batery and the jumper is in the correct position. Any ideas?
I bought a CMOS battery once, and it was flat !
You could try another battery. Or possibly clean (scrape with small flat screwdriver) the contacts where the CMOS battery fits into.
Also re-confirm that the CMOS jumper, is not jumpered at all

You will need to contact HP. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.?html?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0003 Or look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-?Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Or replace the BIOS chip. http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Probook-655-650-645-640-630-G1-470-455-450-445-440-430-Bios-Chip-No-Password-/301245340058?pt=US_Motherboard_Components&hash=item46239f199a#ht_3434wt_1312 REO I must inform you that these services are not endorsed by HP, and that HP is not responsible for any damage that may arise to your system by using these services.

@banerr? Look here. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/HP-5101-5102-5103-BIOS-password-... REOhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/RESET-BIOS-PASSWORD/td-p/5733382
To remove the BIOS passwords you need to short the 2 contacts marked RTC RESET. Remove the memory cover. Look for the 2 contacts between wireless card and memory. Remove main battery and AC. Use a small flathead screwdriver to short the 2 contacts. Passwords are gone. If STRINGENT SECURITY is enabled this will NOT work. Let us know if it works for you.

Used an x-acto knife because the blade is thinner than on a screwdriver. When attempted to short with the screwdriver, the short did not happen because the spacing is extremely small.
