    Wake on Ring Bios settings

    I have a regular toshiba A25-S207 laptop with no upgrades that I bought in 2003. How can I figure out if it supports Wake On ring? When I searched I found that I have to look in the "Bios settings". What are these settings and where can I find them on my regular laptop-?

    Thanks in advance, and yes DarquePervert I have learned to search, so don't act rude to me.

    press the del key as it boots you will get a message telling you to do it if you want to enter settings, thats the BIOS. Given that you dont even know what it is tho I wouldnt recomend you change any of the settings. If you get it wrong you have a dead laptop which is a pain to fix as it has to be taken apart to re-set.

    Nah, man. You're good.

    Also, the DEL key may or may not be what enters the BIOS setup on your computer. On most computers, it's the DEL key, but I've seen it be F2 (on IBMs and Dells), F10 (On HPs and Compaqs) or some other key.
    Usually, when you first boot up, there will be a message telling you a key to press to enter setup or something similar.
    Press that key repeatedly until you get to the menu.

    The manual for your laptop probably also tells you what key enters the BIOS config, so I'd check there too.

    Now, I'm going to say something that's going to be wholly unpleasant. I'm saying this for your benefit, and not to be mean.
    BIOS configuration is a pretty basic place for troubleshooting PC hardware. If you screw around with settings in there, you could render your laptop unusable until you change them back correctly.
    I suggest you learn what all this is, as it's going to be important to know for troubleshooting your setup later on down the road.

    You've gone into this project with an absolute minimal knowledge of PCs. It's amazing to most of us that you've gotten as far along as you have with the minimal knowledge you possess. My hat is off to you for that. However, you're at a point where you are going to encounter some pretty serious stumbling blocks that, if you don't know what you're dealing with, will frustrate you to the point of giving up and posting all your hardware for sale in teh Classified forum.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    When I searched for BIOS all 20 pages were shown, but only the first 3 pages would come up, the next 20 said "no results found"

    If your computer is a laptop, the possibility of having 'resume on power loss' is virtually Nil.
