BIOS Setup Utility

The BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into your computer's BIOS (Basic Input/ Output System).

Your computer is already properly configured and optimized, and you do not need to run this utility. However, if you encounter configuration problems, you may need to run Setup. Please also refer to Chapter 4 Troubleshooting when problem arises.

To activate the BIOS Utility, press M during POST (when "Press <F2> to enter Setup" message is prompted on the bottom of screen).

NOTE: Some images below are captured from previous model (TravelMate 290E) cause the setup images are not ready for current model, therefore, the information of the CPU type, speed, base memory may not be accurate. Please refer to real BIOS setup screen for correct information.

Navigating the BIOS Utility

There are five menu options: Main, Advanced, Security, Boot and Exit. Follow these instructions:

To choose a parameter, use the cursor up/down keys (QQ). To change the value of a parameter, press p or Q. Press ^^ while you are in any of the menu options to go to the Exit menu.

In any menu, you can load default settings by pressing g. You can also press g to save any changes made and exit the BIOS Setup Utility.
