Getting to ur computer's BIAS
so from my previous therads i still have this problem with unfunctional partitions which i am trying to get rid of..
I have Windows XP, how do i get into the BIAS there...Right in the boot up process before partition appear i press
F5 and/or F8 - does not get me into bias just type of mode i want my comp to run
Dlete still does not do sh*t
upon the bootup i c nothing that says how to get into BIAS, just press F8 which is not it.
i'm tryn to make the comp boot from a CD not hard drive

your computer is not biased.....
but, to get into your PC's BIOS - when it's starting up, scanning the memory, drives, etc, hit the Del key, sometimes F1 - it should say on the screen
F4 / 5 / 8 are just OS startup options

Ummm by the way the BIOS is not associated with the OS at all.

you dont want to go into the BIOS for setting partitions
you need to boot to a dos prompt, if you dont have it installed on a partition make a boot disk it will tae you to dos
then at the prompt type fdisk
this is where you manage all your partitions, its pretty self explanatory just make sure you dont erase the partiton with your OS on it

i just wanted to boot directly from the cd and not the hard drive as it was on my comp...i will than get to a blue sceen from the boot cd and start deleting and adding partitions....
BTW, my motherboard has the F1 options others may have Delete option to get to the bias...

I am in the bios:
set the primary boot from CD drive - secondary from floppy - third for HD....
i know its hard to mess up ur CD drive but it will not boot directly from it, i hear the CD spinning there, but the LED light in the CD drive is not coming on at all....
what i mean is...usually when the CD is in, the CD Drive spools hard and the LED light is on meaning everything is good togo...
But even when i am already in Windows puting any type of CD into the drive it slightly spins there but does not spool as it usully does.....I go to "MY Computer" click on "F Drive" is where my CD is in and the message pops out while the CD is inside the drive slightly spinning to put CD into the drive..
maybe its just a coincidence, but u think i need a new CD drive?
