BIOS SETUP UTILITY
n
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.
n
The BIOS Setup Utility configures:
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 the screen. This will open the main menu
of the BIOS Setup Utility with the current
settings displayed.
3. Press the [RIGHT ARROW] or [LEFT ARROW] key
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 seven menus: Main,
Advanced, Security, Power, Boot, Info, and Exit. This
document explains each menu in turn, including all
submenus and setup items.
The following procedures allow you to navigate the
setup utility menus:
1. To select a menu, use the cursor keys:
2. To select a field within a menu or a submenu, use the
3.
4.
5.
6.
2
cursor keys:
To select the different values for each field, press the
[Spacebar] or [+] to change to the next higher selection and [F5] or [-] to go to the next lower selection.
To activate a submenu press the [Enter] key.
To return to a menu from a submenu, press
the [Esc] key.
To go to the Exit menu from any other menu,
press the [Esc] key.
Selecting a field causes a help message about that
field to be displayed on the right-hand side of the
screen.
Pressing the Enter key with the highlight on a selection that is not a submenu or auto selection will
cause a list of all options for that item to be
displayed. Pressing the Enter key again will select
the highlighted choice.
7. Pressing the [F9] key resets all items in the BIOS to
the default values.
8. Pressing the [F10] key saves the current configuration and exits the BIOS Setup Utility. You will be
asked to verify this selection before it is executed.
9. Pressing the [F1] key gives you a general help screen.
Entering the Setup Utility After a Configuration
Change or System Failure
If there has been a change in the system configuration
that does not match 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 too
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.
PO INTS
n
If your notebook emits a series of beeps that sounds
like a code and the display is blank, please refer to the
Troubleshooting Section. The Troubleshooting Section
includes a list of error messages and their meanings.
n
If your data security settings require it, you may be
asked for a password before the operating system will
be loaded.

CAUTION
A bootable CD-ROM may have 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 CD-ROM 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.
CAUTION
Be careful of the operating environment when booting
from a CD-ROM or you may overwrite files by mistake.

ports of your notebook.
P O I N TS
CAUTION
I/O addresses, DMA channels, and Interrupt levels can
be entered in various ways, including via the BIOS setup
utility, the control software for the I/O device, or the
hardware. If any two ports or devices, serial or parallel,
have the same I/O address assigned, your notebook will
not function normally. Please keep a record of original
settings before making any changes in the event that a
restoration is required. See your hardware and software
documentation as well as the setup utility to determine
settings, limitations, etc.
n
To prevent IRQ and address conflicts, avoid changing
the default settings. If you must change the settings,
you can call 1-800-8FUJITSU for technical assistance.
