How to disable press F1 every boot?

Product Name: HP Prodesktop 400 G2 MT
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I've changed the CPU casing (tower) for a better air vent and to avoid overheating because I used it excessively. but after the casing has been replaced, I need to press F1 everytime I use the computer. Is there any way I can disable this F1 process?

 

Thanks.

Re: How to disable press F1 every boot?

Hi Bishop2031!

 

I understand that you are having to press F1 every time that you start the system to continue to boot.

 

Generally this should happen only once when you make a hardware change or clear the CMOS. If it is continuous, this indicates that something may not have been connected or re-seated properly when you changes the case. Could it be possible that the RAM or the RTC battery may not be fully engaged? Have you taken a look at all connections to insure that everything is fully seated/attached? Is the date and time in the PC correct?

 

You might try to restore your BIOS default settings to see if this might resolve the issue. Also, do you have any bangs in the Device Manager?

 

If you really would like to disable your post messages, you can go into your BIOS, under the Advanced tab, select Power-On Options and disable your Post Messages and disable your Bypass F1 Prompt on Configuration Changes.

 

I hope this helps.

Thank you for your kind reply.  All connections are properly secured.

 

Anyway, I will take a look on your advise about CMOS thing and hopefully to get rid of this "press F1" .

 

Thank you and have a nice day!

Hello Lea,

 

Sorry I just cameback from a long business trip. anywy, after disabling the post messages in cmos, the f1 still needed everytime my desktop start and re-start.

 

Now there's 2 errors show:

 

917-front audio not connected

 

922 front USB 2 not connected

 

all cables are already connected but still these errors shows everytime I boot up my computer.

 

Thanks!
