'[OT] CMOS setup for Grid 1720 laptop'

I have been searching for a program to give me access to the CMOS setup for
a Grid 1720 laptop.  It uses a Phoenix BIOS.  It doesn't tell me to push
any key sequence to get in, so I'm assuming I need a program to give it to me.

Anybody have it?

Thanks!

Andy

Many laptops have a function key on the keyboard which will change
display settings (ie. LCD and external monitor, or numeric keypad on the
keyboard, etc) one of the buttons on the keyboard, when pressed with the
function key, will enter the setup utility.  It's nice as I found you
can change many of the settings without rebooting.

I hope this helps...

Andy,

First, are you sure it uses a CMOS type setup?
Have your tried Alt-Ctl-Del or Alt-Ctl-Esc or the DELETE key
at bootup?   I think every machine I've ever worked on has
used one or the other of these methods.  Of course, GRID may
be different though.

                                    Regards,

                                      Jim

Hi,

maybe e. g. Ctrl-Alt-S (I have seen that kind of BIOS...)

Also try F1, F2, etc. - and Alt-S, IIRC some laptops had that.

I know someone to ask, if none of these work, Andy;  bug me off list <G>

Good point.  No, but it's an AT class machine so it seems like it should.

Tried with ESC, never DEL I'll try those thanks.  Usually the display SAYS
what to press - this one doesn't.

I seem to recall that there used to be a F10 key to enter the CMOS setups on
some older computers.  Other variations would be Alt-F10, Ctrl-F10.

If it is a Phoenix BIOS, try CTRL-ALT-S to access the CMOS
setup.

Thanks,
Jamie

In many BIOSs there's an option to suppress that prompt, Phoenix may
well be one of them.

I have PHOENIX BIOS and it the access(and prompt) can be disable...

Hope this helps,
Andrew

Then how do you get it to change/fix things?

There has to be a way should the CMOS get corrupted so you can't boot to a
utility but still retain the lockout.

What was meant was that an indication of the sequence needed to enter the
BIOS setup would not be displayed.  You can still access the CMOS setup if
you know the "secret" key sequence.
