Lcds broken: need to change setups to use external crts

I do not know a) what brand are the bios; b) how to enter the Acrobat setup; c) how ...

Fujitsu Lifebook E6570 will not correctly recongnize my CPU

I recently updated my laptop CPU from 750mhz to 900mhz everything works fine but the bios/Windows XP/WCPUID/Intel frequency utility all report the frequency of 700mhz as oppose to 900mhz!

I already have the latest bios for the laptop,, I have 2 theories for my problem. 1) is that the E6570 was already the fastest model at the time so Fujitsu did not specify a mutiplier greater than 7.5 for any cpus faster than a 750mhz ...

Help! Did I kill my mobo with the setup program?

I flashed the bios on my BCM QS440BX motherboard (award bios). I double-checked the version, etc. and the flashing process apparently completed successfully. On rebooting and entering setup, I entered setup, reset the bios to defaults, then changed a couple of settings (latency, boot order, and power management settings) to where they were before. On rebooting a 2nd time, the initial screen appears, indicating bios version (the updated # is shown), but nothing happens from ...

ieee 1394 boot support for toshiba notebook

Hi to all on this board,

I have a general question about firewire (ieee 1394) boot support. My notebook (Toshiba Satellite 3000-514) has an iLink (=ieee 1394=firewire) connector but even the newest bios downloaded from the Thoshiba-Homepage does not offer the "ieee 1394 boot support". I want to use it for an external hard-disk. Knowing that there is nothing else than a Phoenix-Bios in my computer, I looked up their Homepage, reading that there is ...
