When I start up my laptop won’t boot to Windows.
When I tried to get to BIOS, won’t let me do this as well. I can see only the Toshiba logo. When I press F2 or F12 I got message:
Entering setup. Please Wait or
Entering MultiBoot Selection Menu. Please Wait
I tried ESC + Power Buton and after that F1 key. I can see all information:
Phoenix Bios 4.0 Release 6.1
Cpu=1 processor Detected, Cores per processor =2
Intel Core 2duo T5800 @ 2.00GHz
3070M System RAM Passed
2048 KB L2 Cache
System Bios Shadowed
Video Bios Shadowed
Fixed Disk 0 : Toshiba MK2552GSK
ATAPICD ;Rom DVDRom….
Press F2 to enter Setup or Press F12 to Enter MultiBoot Selection Menu
but after that the laptop just freeze but processor is still running.
I removed the HDD and tried put different one (from working laptop) – still not working
I removed the memory and tried put different one (from working laptop) – still no working
I’ve got no idea what is it causing the trouble.
I’ve got this laptop about a 2 months.
This is due to the bios locking up, to fix this you have to unplug the cmos battery for around a minute, this will reset the bios and your laptop will come back to life!
The cmos battery looks something like the picture above and is usually around the ram or the wifi card, in order to access it you will have to take out a couple of screws but it’s not as hard as you think. Just google your laptop model and add “cmos” and you will find plenty of tutorials on how to get to it!
