How to enter CMOS

by timwalsh In reply to How to enter CMOS

As I mentioned in your other question, CMOS cannot be accessed from within ANY operating system. You can only access CMOS at the beginning of the boot-up process. The actual procedure to enter CMOS setup will vary from manufacturer to manufacter.If you are watching your screen during the boot process you should see a prompt to "Hit <specific key> to enter setup" or something to that effect. Sometimes this prompt may be hidden behind a vendor logo screen. You may need to hit the escape keyto clear the vendor logo screen to see the prompt.

The PATH variable is a system variable (unlike the TEMP variable). You can view and edit this variable in the same location as the TEMP variable (i.e. Start menu | Control Panel | System | Advanced tab | Environment Variables button | System Variable section. Search the list of System variable for "Path." Highlight Path and click the edit button to view the entire path for the directory in question. Add the directory if required.

Hopethis helps.

In most computers, the CMOS Setup is entered by turning on you PC and before the boot-up hold down the delete key until you hear a beep. It should respond by saying "press F1 to resume, after pressing F1 you should get the CMOS Setup Menu. If it is not the delete key, it is usually the Num Pad + key. When I say delete key I mean the Num Pad delete key! Hope this helps! Tim
