Having problems with your HP OmniBook XE3 Notebook ?

Can anyone tell me how to locate the CMOS on hp omnibook 6100 laptop please thanks


Answers :

I can definitely help you with this. To get to the CMOS (also called the BIOS) of your Omnibook 6100 you will need to click start, then go to shutdown. Once the computer is off, turn it back on and as soon as you see the first HP screen (should be immediately upon turning on the laptop) start pressing F2 (may want to press it a few times until you get into the CMOS) at the top of the keyboard. If this is done correctly / fast enough you will be taken immediately into the CMOS.

If it starts to boot into Windows you have gone too far. At that point let it boot all the way up, once booted repeat the process, start, shutdown... Then this time the second you turn on the laptop start pressing F2.

I guess the main focus of my response is that F2 is the key you need to hit immediately upon booting up the laptop.

Thanks for your time, this should do it!
