HELP!! Cant access Laptop BIOS


Recommended Posts

I cant get into Bios on a laptop, dont know why.

This was gifted to me on the understanding that I removed the H/D before accepting it! Which I did.

I bought a new H/D so i could install the O/S from disc.

After having to buy a new power adapter for it, and charging it up, I now cant access the Bios.

I have tried all the usual suspects, F2, F6, F8. DEL and the like and even searched Google for any others, but to no joy.

Its a lovely looking laptop, dual core, etc, and would love to have it up and running but I cant :(

Hve tried popping the O/S disc in to see if it will read it and install, but nothing happens. So I need to access Bios to see what the Boot Options are.

I dont want to end up binning it, cos that would be a waste.

Its, as far as I know, Phoenix Bios, and its a Medion WIM2200.

Have tried it with and without the H/D but I dont think it really matters does it??

Anyone else have any ideas or solutions to this problem?

:help::help::help:

Nope, still doesnt work, even with the hard drive connected and my XP disc in the drive, it still wont boot or access the Bios, I have emailed Medion Support and been told it could be upto 3 working days before I get a reply. :o:(

Are you sure the keyboard works, or that FN or CTRL or SHIFT isn't stuck or something?

 

I'd say, remove the keyboard (just to be safe/sure) and plug in a USB one and see if that works...
