Dear f1at3r1c

Righteo then, you should be starting by resetting your BIOS, and you can do this by removing the outer casing o the PC tower. Once yoiu have done this you then need to find the jumper that clears the CMOS/ BIOS. Now if you are somewhat unsure of what a jumper switch is, it just consists of a smallplatic cap which covers two metal conductive pins on the motherboard. There is usually a pin which is not covered.

Now once you have found the CMOS/ BIOS jumper setting, you will need to first remove the motherboard battery. The battery is nothing more than a glorified watch battery of the CR2032 type, and it will be silver in colour and obviously round in shape (typical cell battery).

Once you have removed the battery, you will need to then clear the CMOS/ BIOS and this is done by moving that jumper switch into the clear position. The pin that is exposed will need to be covered withthe plastic jumper, and the pin on the opposite side will need to be exposed. Leave the jumper in the clear position for about 10-20 seconds or so, and then replace it back to the original position. (doing this discharges all of the electricity in the BIOS/ CMOS chip). Once you have done this, you put the battery back in place and then start the machine, then you are good to go. Start the machine and enter the BIOS as you planned to do. You might want to consider ormatting your hard disk and re-installing windows or whatever operating system you have, and this is eeasy enough, just change the boot sequence to boot from your CD/ DVD drive first, the your hard drive second. Once its loaded up, re-enter the BIOS and reset it back to HDD first.

Now f this has not worked, then you have an oooopsie (this is my saying of oh ***T, oops, something has malfunctioned. Its more than likely to be hardware driven, so take out your hard drive first and try to boot, if it lets you bios, then you found your fault. Try this with all devices until you either find the fault, or you have narrowed this to your processor/ motherboard.


Now im sure this will solve your problem, but there is one thng you should need to know about, and it is how to identify the correct jumper. This will have either any of the following markings written on the motherboard very close to the where the jumper is. You may need glasses/ magnifyer lens in order to read the lettering, but it should say one of the following things.

CLRCMOS
CLCMOS
CLRBIOS
CMOSRST
RESET
CMOSRT
BIOSRST
CMOSCLR
CLEAR
could also be under J1, JUMPER1

Now im sure that this is the fixya for you, but if this still does not work, then please get hold of me, and i will provide you with more info.

I wish you all the best, and hope you manage to solve this issue sortly

kind regards

yours sincerely

Oz

This is THE single most common problem with the Acer Aspire L100. Initially really happy with it, but then after five months, mine started freezing and then refusing to boot. Since then it's been very tetchy so I just bought a new computer. The problem lies in the design, it's TOO small to allow adequate ventilation to all the components - something Acer should have figured out before selling the machine. If you can boot your machine up to bios, go into it and change the temperature settings so it runs the fan at full blast. This may help, but I cant garantee it, sorry! If your warranty is valid, demand a refund.

SOURCE: Processor update..

The problem with Store bought PCs is that there is no way to tell how fast a proccessor you can safely put into one before it becomes overclocking, but in theory your exact motherboard should support an AMD Athlon X2 5800+ 1000 Mhz FSB. Now if your willing to take a risk, you could buy a 6400+ but be warned, the computer may not recognize it, or it may just underclock the proccessor, if the processor supports 800 Mhz FSB. I said the 1000 Mhz FSB because it can underclock to that speed, and also because they no longer offer 800 Mhz flavors at the sites i order from. Hope that helps.

What is the boot order for acer aspire 7741


To use the Acer recovery CD you need to boot up with the CD.
Go into the BIOS setting and scroll through the settings until you come to Boot order. Then move the CD/DVD drive up as the first boot device and the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
When you boot up the Acer with the recovery CD in the CD/DVD drive then it will boot up with the Recovery CD.

I have acer aspire 3000+ and cant change bios setup to boot first from cd rom and erecovery doesnt work


Why can't you change the bios setup to change the boot order or boot sequence?

Also you can change the boot order or boot sequence temporarily by just rebooting the laptop then watch the screen for which key it says to hit to change the boot sequence or boot order, then hit that key when you see the message.

Only booting after pressing f12 and select boot devise


Hi,
You must change the boot sequence from your BIOS.
To do this, when your computer starts press F1 or F2 until you enter the bios setup menu. Usually on Toshiba is F1 or Esc key.
Now that you are in the BIOS, you must locate the boot order section. Just go through every page until you see something like Boot Device, Boot Order, Boot Management, Boot Sequence, etc. (its different for each computer)
There, change the boot order to move the Hard Disk or DVD ROM in the top two items in the list.
Save your settings and exit the BIOS.
Your computer will restart and it should boot up normally.
