Yes, so he should consult his user manual, obviously.
Pressing up arrow usually works, but again, it should be confirmed by either some eyeballs or experimentation. It has always worked for me, but you never can tell. Sometimes the menus don't wrap.

Would repairing IE be a better option than setting it back to its defaults, if repairing is possible?  If repairing is possible, how would I do that?  Thank you very much for all your help.
Take care.

Maybe. I just did not want to suggest that one for now.
So...
Tools>Internet Options>Advance tab.
Press the "Reset..." button and also check the "Delete personal
settings" check box.
Note this will also disable your add-on. So, for example, if you have a
download manager you need to go to add-on manager to re-enable it. It
won't effect Flash, however.
Happy trying...

Re: installing linux as a second OS, help please

Carlos
 

F12 is probably the most commonly used key, but some manufacturers use Delete, F10, and so on. Also, there is no guarantee that pressing Up Arrow once on the boot menu will select the flash drive. The order and available options may again depend on a couple of factors such as the manufacturer and currently connected devices.

To boot using the flash drive, you either have to change the boot sequence in the BIOS so that the machine
will boot from USB first or figure out how to access the bootable devices
menu so you can just select the flash drive directly.
The most common key to do this is f12. What I suggest you do is power off. Then, power back up and start hitting f12 for the next ten seconds or so. Your USB drive should, of course, be plugged into the board. After ten seconds, hit the up arrow key and enter. Then enter once more and wait a bit. You should then hear a Linux start sound.
The second enter is to get beyond the Linux boot prompt.

Hi, I'll try to help, better than nothing. From the main program menu, press h. Now, press h again, and this will open the chapter of how to use the help menu. Now, if you do a read all, or scroll the display, you will find the commands. I'd guess some keys, but you've asked us not to do that.

Re: installing linux as a second OS, help please

Carlos
 

You then have to boot from the flash drive. To boot using the flash drive, you either have to change the boot sequence in the BIOS so that the machine will boot from USB first or figure out how to access the bootable devices menu so you can just select the flash drive directly. The second option is easier, but you have to figure out the key for accessing the bootable devices menu for your particular model. Although as Rob says, on some systems the boot sequence may already be configured to boot from USB first so you can just try rebooting and see if it works.

What Linux distribution are you trying to install? Not
all
Linux
distros
are accessible and even those that are may not be
immediately
accessible
after installation. Two Linux distros which are
guaranteed
to
be
accessible
are Vinux
http://vinuxproject.org/
and Sonar.
http://sonargnulinux.com/
As for installing Linux in a dual boot configuration, it
partially
depends
on the distro, but usually you have to boot from the DVD
or
flash
drive
first, then when you choose to actually install it on to
the
hard
drive,
you
will be given the option of setting up a dual boot
configuration.

Press the "Reset..." button and also check the "Delete personal

Note this will also disable your add-on. So, for example, if you have a

won't effect Flash, however.

You may initially need sighted assistance since as when
booting
into
any
other environment, you have to either change the boot
sequence
in
the
BIOS
or access the bootable devices menu.

Hi, OK, downloading the ISO from the first link. While
that's
downloading,
though, question. So while booting, or setting up, will I
need
sighted,
or
will NVDA still be with me at that point?

What Linux distribution are you trying to install? Not
all
Linux
distros
are accessible and even those that are may not be
immediately
accessible
after installation. Two Linux distros which are
guaranteed
to
be
accessible
are Vinux
http://vinuxproject.org/
and Sonar.

As for installing Linux in a dual boot configuration, it
partially
depends
on the distro, but usually you have to boot from the DVD
or
flash
drive
first, then when you choose to actually install it on to
the
hard
drive,
you
will be given the option of setting up a dual boot
configuration.

Hi,
So, trying to install linux here. I got as far as
downloading
4.7,
the
entire OS, however, I'm confused as to how I would go
about
doing
the
actual process.
http://www.howtogeek.com/214571/how-to-dual-boot-linux-on-your-pc/
Says to: "Boot from that drive and install it on your
system,
making
sure
you select the option that installs it alongside
Windows -
don't
tell
it
to wipe your hard drive. It'll automatically set up a
Grub2
boot
loader
menu that lets you choose your preferred operating
system
each
time
you
boot your computer." Well, how would I go about doing
that,
please?
Or
rather, will I need sighted help?
