Preferred Solution: Stuck on Aptio Setup Utility Screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an Asus laptop and I got the notification that I can upgrade to Windows 10 if I wanted to. So, I clicked to update it and it did and when I restarted it, my mouse pad would not work. I was able to go into programs and click repair for the mouse and then it worked. I used my laptop for a few minutes and everything was fine and then I closed it and set it aside. Later that day, I opened it and I clicked on Chrome and I got the hour glass. I waited for a few minutes and nothing happened. So, I pressed and held the power button down to turn it off and turned it back on a few seconds later.
When I turned it back on I was at the Aptio Setup Utility screen and no matter what I pushed, I couldn't exit. My battery died and so I plugged it in and turned it back on. This time it said that it was being diagnosed. After a long while, it said they couldn't fix it and gave me the option of restarting it or advanced options. I clicked advanced options and chose to go back to Windows 8.1 hoping that it would return to normal. After that, I assumed it was doing that and I left it to make lunch for my son. When I came back to it and it had been awhile it was just a blue screen and was like that for a long time, so I again shut it down.

I went online and did a search and someone said to enable the launch CSM on the boot section and to disable the secure boot menu and then to restart and I would be able to get to the advanced options/recovery screen. So, I did do that and was ab... Read more

my Asus laptop froze and when I restarted it, a screen that said ?Aptio Setup Utility? popped up. I googled it and tried what everyone was recommending:
Select the Boot menu in the Aptio setup utility, select 'Launch CSM' and change to enable

Select the Security menu n the Aptio setup utility, select 'Secure Boot Control' and change to disable

Select Save & Exit and press 'yes'

Hold down the power button until the unit switches power off completely

Switch back on and continually press the F9 button for about ten seconds; this should now allow the unit to boot up into the Windows Recovery menu

Select 'Advanced Start Up' and wait until the recovery menu appears

Select ' Advanced Options'

Select 'System Restore' and select a date prior to when the problem occurred?.

The only problem is that once I switch the computer back on and try to press F9, it does nothing. I get a black screen that says ?Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key? I can get back into the Aptio Utility screen from here but I can?t get into my computer. How can I fix this and get back in???? I don?t know much about computers so I?m totally stuck and I NEED what?s on there for business.

I'm sorry if I'm posting in the wrong form. I have a ASUS G75VX I was just finished cleaning my fan filter and went to turn my computer back on when the blue and grey Aptio Setup Utility popped up.

It took me to a screen saying "Reboot and Select proper boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key" I don't know what that means. Can someone please help?

You might have knocked loose the cables for the hard drive. It is saying it has nothing to boot from and since you were messing around inside it sounds like you may have knocked something loose.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5000 series laptop that keeps getting stuck in the Aptio utility loop and BIOS stuff and doesn?t allow me to load Windows 10 successfully. The other day my PC randomly had a blue screen of death and crashed and now it?s preventing me from getting back to my OS ever since. Sometimes upon booting it loads a PCI white screen saying ?Hard drive not installed.?

I ran the ePSA diagnostics to check and scan the system, but it only keeps saying it finished the tests with a yellow caution sign next to my hard drive. Is there anything I can do to get a successful boot? I just don?t want to lose everything I was working on.

Last night I woke up to find that my computer had on its display the aptio setup utility. I had never seen this before and turned off my computer. I restarted it in safe mode and after about 5 min or so my computer went to the blue screen of death for like a second then to the aptio setup utility. Now, before this happened I had been downloading files from utorrent for like 3 days straight as well as watching some on my computer (which is an Asus G55vw), so I'm not sure if this is maybe a virus of some sort? Or didn't know if my computer had been working too hard for the past too days? Either way I have no idea what to do and was wondering if I could get some help! Im on my gf's computer right now and still staring at the aptio setup utility screen.

Hi.

I have an Asus laptop, model X551C. My laptop was working fine until recently when i switched it on and it asked for a password in a strange screen. (See screen shot below)
When i entered my normal password it took me to this screen.
If i press any button it just repeats the message and does nothing. When i first noticed the strange password screen it took me here.

To the aptio setup utility screen. I looked online and read that my boot up order may be wrong so I tried to resolve it by going to the boot menu section of aptio this is what I see.


It doesn't appear that my hard drive is listed (I may be wrong) I have tried everthing to get it to start Windows with no luck.

I may have some of the other menus configured wrong not sure.

Does anyone know what may have caused this and how I may fix this frustrating issue ?

Thanks

Hi
I bought a new laptop (Asus x75a) and when I received it I turned it on and it went into the aptio setup utility so I set the time and date and went over to save and exit only to return to the same screen. I've restored defaults and loading optimised settings but it always returns to it.
I disabled secure boot and enabled csm and this time it loaded the asus screen and went to a black screen saying reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device.
It should be preinstalled with win8 and no where in the user manuals does it detail the setup utility.
I've searched the web for a solution but I'm yet to find one. I've contacted the seller but I thought whilst I wait I would seek help here.

Hello. Please forgive me for this off-topic-post, but i would like to tell everybody, why i really like APTIO Setup Utility, the best BIOS-Settings.


The great advantage is not only the great user interface and the accurate help descriptions (that Ins?deH20 also has), but what i really love is:
The APTIO Setup-Utility does have ?Boot-Override? in the Exit-Tab‼
I don't have to press F12 to override. I can simply go to the BIOS-Settings. And if i am inside of the BIOS-Settings, i can simply override without exiting the settings and press F12. That's Aptio's greatest advantage. My Samsung 700G7A-S02 does also have APTIO.
Aptio Setup Utility Screenshot:


Other Setup Utilities:



Disadvantage: If Windows is hibernated, DualBoot (e.g. Hiren's Boot CD) is not supported, which did already cause a problem. But other BIOS-Firmwares do also not allow DualBoot with hibernation.

Please note, that this is no sneaky advertisement. This is just my opinion. The screenshots are not from my Computer.

Hi everybody, I have a small big problem: my laptop asus is blocked on aptio setup utility in the sense that every time I start it it redirects me to this menu. Why it's urgent: it's because I do not have access to my 2 OS window10 / ubuntu that contain important files for my studies that are happening right now. So, it is of paramount importance that I can solve this problem.

Then I tried some stuff for sure. In fact, there is a lot of result on google on this problem, but it's still the same solution: disabled fast boot, enabled launch CSM and do F10 or F9 at startup (I even tested F4, F5, F6, F8) and nothing works. If you do little research you will come across a solution has kind 10 steps of microsoft, bah the one does not work.

Then I tried to boot the Ubuntu installer on my USB key, but I can only test ubuntu without installing or installing it, but I want to access my old data. I then did the same for Window with the Window installer that offers troubleshooting. I tried the restore options but it asks me to select a system at startup but that's exactly what I do not have access to. Then boot diagnostic tool, good jme recalls more of all the options, but roughly there's nothing that works.

Finally I have to type on the console: bootrec / RebuildRbc and it says that it detects no installation windows, suddenly, it is a trick with the hard disk literally.

How I had this problem: I switched off my computer under ubuntu.

Greetings forums!

Firstly, thanks for taking the time to read this post. I've done my best to google, try everything I possibly could imagine and still things aren't going my way - you're my biggest hope!
Background information & my probable earlier mistakes
The computer in question is an ASUS K55D that, used to, run Windows 8.1. Since this OS did not cooperate with our home network I decided it was a good idea to install Windows 7.

Long story short it doesn't boot via USB or DVD so I try to do it from inside W8.1 (under the presumption that it'd install it on the same disk and do the "Windows Old Folder" thing) - works fine until the reboot when it forgets about the installation, then goes into a weird boot loop that finally ended up in continuing to install W7.
I let it finish and, lo and behold, the computer crashes and boots into chkdsk (or some similar utility) claiming there's loads of issues. Que a long time of non-sensical information (did not look like any tool I've ever used before) and a lot of error messages (this is in post, by the way) that lasted for a few hours. So I decide to reboot again.

Suddenly the laptop decides it DOES want to boot into the DVD, since it can't get into W8.1 anymore. I try to install but when I try to select my newly formatted HDD it gives me "cannot install to partition of the GPT format".

So I press "delete" in the hopes of my computer understanding that ... Read more

Some how there must be a change in your bios. Aptic Setup is the name AMI uses for the setup program built into your bios.

You will need find the proper key to press when starting your Acer to enter the bios. Maybe something has been changed but the change was never saved.

You might choose Save changes and reset, Discard Changes & exit, or Restore Defaults.

How to enable hardware virtualization in Aptio Setup Utility?
I am not able to enable it in BIOS.
I want this because while installing Androin 4.4 in Virtualbox it is giving some error.

I have also uploaded Speccy CPU configuration which states that virtulization is supported and few pics of my BIOS.
Thanks.

A:How to enable hardware virtualization in Aptio Setup Utili

Hello,

Most important question: What is the error? We're not all-knowing here.
It might not be VT-x related at all, Android should be x86 in a VM and expect it to act weird.

Check the Virtualbox forums for specific details.
But a bit more on the VT issue:
I got a pc (here Medion) with Aptio as well. Problem is that I have AMD cpu on this one so the comparison won't help much.
Here the BIOS reports virtualization is on, I think. If your pc is new this year/last year, than VT-x should normally be on by default.

BUT: here Speccy says virtualization is disabled as well! Be careful, it might be a false warning. I can use virtualization in Virtualbox: the tab is enabled and I don't get any errors/warnings. So VT is ON even if Spaccy says it isn't. Check multiple sources to make sure.

Actually a good place to look is the VM log: Vbox.log in the VM folder: I see in my case AMD-V is used so virtualization is enabled.

Code:
00:00:03.677075 HM: Using AMD-V implementation 2.0!


In your case for Intel you should search for VT-X because it will report it ON or OFF.
Sorry, I'm not on my Intel machine at the moment but the previous lines should tell you what you need.

Good luck.

Look for an option to Reset Your BIOS To Factory Defaults. If that doesn't work, consult your owner's manual for other options (clear cmos, reflash bios, etc). I'm assuming you did not delete anything in Windows 8 (or from the physical hard drive directly) because you only mentioned bios access.

My laptop runs Windows 7 HP 64-bit.

HOW THE PROBLEM STARTED:
I was trying to repair install the OS from setup from my hard disk. When I returned after two hours, there was a black screen, and system was non-responsive. I waited for another half an hour, but decided to restart the laptop.


Since then there were two options in the boot menu:
1.Windows 7 2.Windows Setup Rollback

Either of them lead to the same black screen(even the backlight is off) after the windows logo.The black screen stays indefinitely long until I repeatedly press Esc/CtrlAltDel/CtrlShiftEsc, which causes reboot after some time

when I selected Windows 7 option and ran in Safe mode, a low res setup screen saying that
"Windows cannot complete the installation in safe mode. to continue installing windows, restart the computer"
appears and then the system restarts

Then tried repairing the OS from Command Prompt in the repair options. I tried bootrec, of which FixMbr and FixBoot ran successfully, but ScanOS and FixMbr showed 0 windows installations.

Since this step, the "Windows Setup Rollback" Option has disappeared from the Boot menu, but the back screen after booting and the "setup cannot continue..." screen still appears in safe mode.

The problem started Yesterday when My HDD went bad I could see it was a bad hard drive it was already making noises and very slow so I knew it was going to happen. I had a few other HDD's laying around 1 IDE 60gbs Tried that one but It just would not install windows saying that it could not install windows because the system might not be able to boot from it. So I went and got another HDD I had laying around which was a 60gb Sata drive I plugged it back in the same spot. Then I loaded it up had the Windows 7 disk in already I got to the post-boot screen where it says Press DEL for Bios and Tab for SETUP? it kept freezing at that point so I finally restarted and Pressed TAB real quick which got me to a screen that says AMERICAN MAGATRENDS. That's when I noticed that it was saying the Drive was 3rd Master which seemed odd to me because It was not set for that before.

I am not trying to install Windows 7, it came on my computer and has been working fine for over a year now. I restarted my computer a few days ago (after it had been working just fine) and now it will not load past the "Setup is Starting Services" screen. I keep getting the error message "Install Windos: The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click 'OK' to restart the computer, then restart the installation." I cannot figure out why it is mentioning anything about installing windows when it came on the computer and has been working until now. I have hit "ok" and it does nothing but come back to the same stuck point. I do not have a disk for this computer as it never came with one. It is a Toshiba Satellite L455D. I am posting on here from another computer that works fine, so just tell me what I need to do to the other one to get it running properly again. Thanks!

Hi,
Are you getting similar symptoms when you boot into safemode(f8 on reboot). Are you wanting to save any data/files ?? if not then you can restore your machine back to factory (out of the box state) settings by pressing and holding down the zero key, release the key as soon as the recovery windows opens, you will be prompted with a few options the one you want to pick is 'box state' this process can take quite a while so be patient, also before doing you MUST make sure you have NOTHING plugged into your machine.. i.e .. mice/flashdrives etc...

Iain.
