Preferred Solution: How to Access Advanced HP Bios

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've been having a super annoying problem with my mouse, it keeps shutting off after about an hour of use, for like 2 seconds or so, then comes back on and keeps doing it repeatedly, it is not the mouse as i have tried another one and it did the same thing.
After googling all about it, i think it is a power problem related to the laptop, and i see people saying to go into the Bios advanced options, and turn off the stuff in Power Management. But i cant seem to figure out how to get into my Bios' advanced settings. The bios info is-- InsideH2O, Version F 2.9 i believe.

I have a dv6-7135nr laptop and the hard drive failed in the system. I purchased a Samsung SSD as a replace. The laptop does not see the new replacement drive and the Bios is locked down so tight you can change any advanced settings. I am sitting here with an un-operational laptop. Please suggest a fix or the key combination to change the bios settings. I need this laptop functional!!!! Jerry Crazy that the bios is locked down! Very frustrating!!!

A:Pavilion dv6-7135nr Advanced Bios access and SSD drive

By locked down you seem to think there is another whole layer of options available if you can just get some kind of access. Not so. The BIOS are just simplified for consumer laptops. What do you mean the SSD is not visible? What operating system are you trying to install and how? The storage controller is set to RAID and a Windows 7 disk, for example, will not see a hard drive until you introduce the right F6 driver to enable the storage controller.

Not sure if this is the right place to post such a question, if it isnt, please direct me to the right board. I need to access the Advanced Tab to use IDE Compatibility mode, dual booting Windows XP to use legacy programs that dont work on a virtual machine. (poor 3d support) I know support for it dropped 2 years ago and some drivers might not work, but I need XP regardless. Anyway, after digging around the internet after my laptop kept shutting down during XP setup, I found out that I needed to enable IDE compatibility mode, but when I checked, the option wasnt there. My BIOS is  Insydeh20 Rev 3.7, version F.12. I am aware that accessing the advanced tab is risky, but I know there are safe(r) ways to do it. At this point, anything at all helps. Even if I can only access the advanced tab once. Thanks

I had wanted to change the minimum amount of memory to my intel HD 515 graphics and make some other tweaks for gaming, and I turned off my laptop, pushed the novo button on the side, it booted up and I chose the Bios setup option. I started going through the menus and I HAD an advanced menu which gave me the graphics memory options, it had overclocking options, option to enable NFC, 3D Camera and a bunch of other stuff. I even showed to someone, so I was NOT hallucinating haha. I had decided to reboot and wait so I could google a lot of the options as I didn't understand some of the super-super advanced settings. When I went back to the bios, no advanced menu is present and I can NOT get it back. A lot of stuff says you CAN'T get it, but I DID.  Anyone? Was it some super weird glitch or did I bump the right key combo? I did a google search and have found a few others that have also accidentally done this, including a screenshot of the SAME menu I got from another Lenovo user.

Hello,

I have a computer that is stuck in a loop and won't boot into normal or safe mode. There is a blue screen flashing up, but way too quick for me to be able to see the STOP code.

The problem I have is that the American Megatrends BIOS 2.51, has an option on the boot screen "Press F8 for BBS Popup". Therefore I can't use the F8 key to get into the Windows XP Advanced Options menu. Why the hell has a BIOS manufacturer hijacked an important Windows key?????

I have also tried pressing the F8 key AFTER the BIOS screen, but even by doing that you still get a boot order list by pressing F8, and not the Advanced Options menu.

Does anyone know how to either:
1. Disable the Press F8 for BBS Popup in the BIOS? (I've looked, so has a workmate, but we can't see it)

or

2. Is there an alternative to using the F8 key to access the Advanced Options menu?

Hope someone can help.
 

A:Windows XP - Can't access Advanced Options menu (F8 key hijacked by BIOS)

If your keyboard has a "F-lock" key, press it before F8.

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?

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)

Hi, No matter what settings you will apply to the BIOS you will not see more options than you currently see. The settings which are not available are settings which are locked by acer. Thus you cannot change them, unless you make a custom/modded BIOS for the machine.
