Please send me the system service tag or express service code through a private chat, I will see what best can be done. Once you tell us what your model iswe can probably find a manual for the model that shows what you need to check, where the cover is, if you need that. I am wondering why this unknown brand of drive was bought. If it can be returned I would do that. You may have to format your system by , or you may have installed a new hard drive. Also, unplug all devices that are connected to the system and then try entering the bios. That is what was happening.
Laptops would not have multiple connections. Click the link below for more information. The connection adapter that plugs into the harddrive leaves 4 pins on the drive without a connection. Right now there are serious communication problems with this machine. I'm losing my mind over this and I reached the end of my wits. All the peripherals work as expected, both graphic cards perform normally, keyboard, everything, name it.
Dell lappie's are a pain in the rear end. Even though the key isn't dead maybe it is locked similar to caps lock so that it is giving the wrong signal. You're not really green until you're soylent green. If you fiddle with the drive, you must disconnect those. It is not a password issue, i do not even have a chance to be asked for. This way, it is important to change the list to define the order the system may boot from specific devices.
Have you run any diagnostics, to see if your F2 key is even working? When the Bios opens, make your changes to the boot sequence. If so then the controller is good. The model is often displayed on the Dell logo graphical screen early in the boot. Have you tried an external keyboard? Some models have a small white plug on the motherboard with a 2 wire connectoer, but others connect through the Touchpad connector. I just got a Precision M4600 laptop and I'm setting it up. Were you trying to flash the bios? When I hold down the F2 key it never does that, but if I instead wait a few seconds and just tap the F2 key it goes into the boot manager.
My laptop monitor stopped working thats why I bought an external Dell monitor. That should allow you to enter the bios by pressing the appropriate key F2, del probably while powering on.

She said no charge so I said go ahead. I tried loading failsafe defaults and it doesn't seem to change anything. Knowing your model will help us determine whether two hard drives can be installed on it, and how old it is, and whether it's likely to have bios limitations.
Apparently with windows 10, it really does not shut down completely when you say shut down. I can run a bunch of things. I've tried all the function keys, as well as esc and del and they only get me to Windows Boot Manager. All help would be very much appreciated. Anyone up for the challenge? Thanks for making it this far.
After that, the Intel Management setup option didn't appear. They are designed that way, so should it fail, you go out and buy a new one, as often it's too costly to repair. I'm running Windows 7 Home and the model of my laptop is Dell Inspiron N5110. The Toshiba performs this exactly like my Dell. Your Dell laptop includes three main diagnostic options used for locating and fixing problems, which are all accessed by first restarting the laptop's operating system. Does it boot to windows? If that is necessary, I'd like to know a bit more about how to do it - I've never really poked about the inside of a computer before - at least not one that I wanted to work. I haven't gotten that method esc to work yet, but it could lead to something.
Most controllers will make adjustments for this but laptops may not. When I run it on my Dell it warns of an illegal operation and asks if I want to ignore which is what I would expect when run on the wrong machine. The bios update was my last option to try and get this thing to boot to bios and it is still doing the same thing so I don't think the update is the problem. If you hold the shift key while you click on shut down, it will shut down completely. I yanked the hard drive and powered up.
