While it's relatively difficult to destroy data by changing values in the BIOS, it IS easy to make changes that would prevent the computer from booting.Generally, there is no mouse capability in the BIOS.Failure is normally due to invalid information and can be corrected by setting CMOS defaults.Further failure indicates either the chipset or the CMOS RAMMemory up to 640K is addressed in 64K blocks.Then reboot the system If the system cannot boot using the current CMOS configuration, the BIOS can override the current configuration with a set of BIOS defaults designed for the most stable, minimal-performance system operations Award offers a save-a-disk feature for notebook computers. If ESCD is valid, take into consideration of the ESCD's legacy information; Onboard clock generator initialization.This message may appear when the operator restarts the system after a save-to-disk shutdown. Disable respective clock resource to empty PCI & DIMM slots; Early PCI initialization - Enumerate PCI bus number, assign memory & I/O resource, search for a valid VGA device & VGA BIOS, and put it into C000:0Program MTRR of M1 CPU; initialize L2 cache for P6 class CPU & program cacheable range; Initialize the APIC for P6 class CPU; On MP platform, adjust the cacheable range to smaller one in case the cacheable ranges between each CPU are not identical Final USB initialization; NET PC: Build SYSID structure; Switch screen back to text mode; Set up ACPI table at top of memory; Invoke ISA adapter ROM's; Assign IRQ's to PCI devices; Initialize APM; Clear noise of IRQ's Enable L2 cache; Program boot up speed; Chipset final initialization; Power management final initialization; Clear screen and display summary table; Program K^ write allocation; Program P6 class write combining All information has been gathered with permission of the respective BIOS providers.
Also be sure the disk is formatted as a boot device. If CMOS checksum fails, use default value instead; Prepare BIOS resource map for PCI & Pn P use.Determine which setting is correct and then either turn off the system and change the jumper or enter Setup and change the video selector The EISA nonvolatile RAM checksum is incorrect or cannot correctly read the EISA slot.This can indicate either the EISA nonvolatile memory has become corrupted or the slot has been configured incorrectly.For most of our day to day use, the main operating system (Windows, Linux...) determines the capabilities of a computer.Before the computer can access the main OS, it's going to need a little help.
