BIOS SETUP UTILITY
P O I N TS
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 should be no need to set or change the
BIOS environment to operate your notebook.
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.
To enter the BIOS Setup Utility do the following:
1. Turn on or restart your notebook.
2. Press the [F2] key when a message appears under the
Fujitsu logo prompting you to “Press <F2>: BIOS
Setup”. This will open the main menu of the BIOS
Setup Utility with the current settings displayed.
3. Press the arrow keys to scroll through the other
setup menus to review or alter the current settings.
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.
If there has been a change in the 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
too severe, it will give you the opportunity to modify
the settings of the setup utility, as described in the
following steps:
The BIOS setup utility consists of six menus: Main,
Advanced, Security, Boot, Info and Exit. This document
explains each menu in turn including all submenus and
setup items.
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.
The following procedures allow you to navigate the
setup utility menus:
].
2. To select a field within a menu or a submenu, use the
cursor keys:

Selecting a field causes a help message about that
field to be displayed on the right-hand side of the
screen.
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.

CAUTION
■
A bootable CD-ROM may have either a floppy disk or hard drive format. When the bootable CD-ROM 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.
■
Be careful of the operating environment when booting from a CD-ROM or you may overwrite files by mistake.

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

restoration is required. See your hardware and software
documentation as well as the setup utility to determine
