BIOS doesn't have the Advanced Tab

Q: BIOS doesn't have the Advanced Tab

I was trying to overclock when I saw that BIOS is unable to do it because it is missing the "Advanced" tab. Is there any way to fix this?

Preferred Solution: BIOS doesn't have the Advanced Tab

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.)

Hi!
I wanted to ask why do i not have an advanced tab in my Bios?, everyone else seems to have it but i don't ; /. I've done some research but still couldn't find the answer to my problem/question. Apparently some people say that in some manufacturers it doesn't allow to use the advanced tab in Bios but am not really sure if that is true or not. I also have another problem because i wanted to use the most i can of my Intel HD graphics card 4000, i've seen a lot of posts and videos of how to do it in the Regedit, but it doesn't work ; / I've restarted my laptop many times to update the change but i still have the same amount... i have 8gb of Ram.. so that means i should be available to use about 1024mb of dedicated memory

When i got home today didn't my computer work, my girlfriend has been the last one using it. So don't know how things were just before the shutdown or anything.

when i turn on the computer i get to the screen where "touch bios" is and where i can see the options like Bios settings, boot menu, xpress recovery.
but i cant press anything, and after about two seconds on that screen the PC shuts down again.

The keyword lights up so there is a responds on it, but just doesn't work to press anything before it shuts down.

I've got BSOD upto several times a day for a few months time.
believe that my computer is affected by some virus or something is delaying my computer. might be an combination of several things.

I got no external things hugged up to the stationeer computer right now.

it is a windows 7 x64 machine.

usually when i get issues i can access advanced boot up or bios, but can neither in this case..
I wonder if it might be a hardware issue.
If so what do you think it might be?
and how can i diagnose the problem when i can't do anything with the machine?

thanks

I have a VN7-572G. The presented BIOS settings are sort of lackluster for a gaming laptop and I know what I'm doing enough to tinker with more advanced settings. I've examined the BIOS for this laptop and there are a ton of locked-away settings. Unfortunately, there is some sort of BIOS security implemented that prevents me from just flashing a modified BIOS onto this laptop. Is there perhaps some sort of way to officially access more advanced settings or any way of requesting one from Acer?

Hi
I have Outlook 2007 on XP (I think SP2). The Advanced find doesn't work. When I right-click a message and select 'Find All' then either Related Messages or Messages from Sender, I get the Advanced Find popup and no results. I have enabled Instant search and downloaded the search software but it doesn't seem to make a difference to Advanced Find. Instant Search works fine.

Any suggestions? I'm sure it's something simple.

Hello,

I'm not sure if this is the best location on this forum for this post, but I'm hoping someone can help!

I'm running Win 8, upgraded from Win 7, and I first noticed that I could not run LocalDB when I tried to create my first LightSwitch app in VS 2012. The error reported there is that it cannot start, but later I found in the sql error logs the following output:
2012-09-04 12:28:02.43 spid4s Cannot use file 'C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances\v11.0\master.mdf' because it was originally formatted with sector size 4096 and is now on a volume with sector size 3072. Move the file to a volume with a sector size that is the same as or smaller than the original sector size.
2012-09-04 12:28:02.43 spid4s Error: 5178, Severity: 16, State: 1.
I've checked and verified that the sector size on this drive is indeed 4096, and some research seems to suggest that some Dell bios's may have to do with the incorrect reporting of the sector size to some applications.
Does anybody have any suggestions on what I can do to get this thing running?

Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

A:Advanced Help Needed with BIOS Update

I'm a software geek so I'm a bit out of depth with advanced hardware Dx, but a HW buddy of mine suggesting pulling the HD to verify the board....before doing so I swapped the RAM sticks (moved the original from bottom slot to top and new from top to bottom) and compressed air'd the entire section.

removed HD, blew out bay, and powered on. Displayed Compaq splash, auto refreshed to display splash again, auto refresh to solid black with rapid cursor at top left corner. Can hear and feel the fans spinning, but otherwise nothing. Does this confirm BIOS problem (as I suspected) or is it something else? (would call the buddy, but he's at the movies with his cell off :X)
