BIOS SETUP UTILITY
The BIOS Setup Utility is a program that sets up the
operating environment for your notebook. Your BIOS
is set at the factory for normal operating conditions,
therefore there is no need to set or change the BIOS
environment to operate your notebook.

■
■
Device control feature parameters, such as changing
I/O addresses and boot devices.
System Data Security feature parameters, such as
passwords.
Entering the BIOS Setup Utility
To enter the BIOS Setup Utility do the following:
1. Turn on or restart your notebook.
2. Press the [F2] key once the Fujitsu logo appears on

displayed.
3. Press the arrow keys to scroll through the other
setup menus to review or alter the current settings.
Navigating Through The Setup Utility
The BIOS setup utility consists of six menus: Main,

Entering the Setup Utility After a Configuration
Change or System Failure
If there has been a change in system configuration that
does not agree with the parameter settings stored in your
BIOS memory, or there is a failure in the system, the
system beeps and/or displays an error message after the
Power On Self Test (POST). If the failure is not severe, it
will give you the opportunity to modify the settings of
the setup utility, as described in the following steps:
1. When you turn on or restart the computer there is a
beep and/or the following message appears on the
screen:
Error message - please run SETUP
program Press <F1> key to continue,
<F2> to run SETUP
2. If an error message is displayed on the screen, and
you want to continue with the boot process and start
the operating system anyway, press the [F1] key.
■
If your notebook emits a series of beeps
that sounds like a code and the display is
blank, refer to the Troubleshooting section of your system Use’s Guide. The
Troubleshooting Section includes a list of
error messages and their meanings.
■
If your data security settings require it,
you may be asked for a password before
the operating system will be opened.

Be aware of the operating environment when booting from a CD-ROM or you may overwrite files by
mistake.
A bootable CD-ROM has either a floppy disk format or a hard drive format. When the bootable CDROM is used, the drive allocations change automatically without changing the BIOS setup. If a floppy
disk format is used, the CD-ROM becomes Drive A. The CD-ROM will only take drive C: (hard drive
format) if the internal hard drive is not present or is disabled. The bootable CD-ROM can never use a C:
designation if a formatted internal hard drive is present since the C: designator is always reserved for the
internal hard drive. The boot sequence ignores the new drive designations, however, your application
software will use the new designations.

Description
1st Boot Device
The boot selections determine the order in which the BIOS searches for the operating system during a startup
sequence. To view all devices related to a source, press [Enter]. To change the order, highlight one source by using
the [up] or [down] cursor keys and then press the [Enter] key to assign the selected device to the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd
position. To select a specific hard disk drive, return to the previous screen and click on Hard Disk Drives Priority; select
the desired hard disk drive. To select a specific optical drive, return to the previous screen and click on CD/DVD
Drives Priority; select the desired drive. If an exclamation point appear next to an item, it means the device has been
disabled in the corresponding menu.
NOTE: Be aware that if you use the CD-ROM drive as the first boot device, certain files may be overwritten,
depending upon your operating environment.

move to another menu. If you wish to exit from the setup utility press the Esc key to go to the Exit menu. If you wish to
move to another menu, use the cursor keys.
