Asus bios utility EZ mode startup - sign of death??

Q: Asus bios utility EZ mode startup - sign of death??

i have an ASUS piece of garbage thats not even a year old - model X751N - that opened up today with a series of start-up errors. one was "Inaccessible Boot Device" and it tried repairing itself multiple times. then it opened up automatically in ASUS Bios Utility which i couldnt get out of. i looked online and found a way to get around it, but my overall question is, when im getting these errors and auto-repairing and bios utility...is this generally a sign that the laptop is a goner? i dont think i can trust this unit anymore. its running windows 10 if you need to know.

thanks for reading.

Preferred Solution: Asus bios utility EZ mode startup - sign of death??

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.)

Hello SF members.

Note : I dont know where to put this topic. If you know better , move it.

I already asked some questions here, some members helped me a lot but I need help again.

In one topic I asked how to Overclock. I learned it , and know more about it.
But now my problems is my BIOS. I dont know how to use it. That isnt classic....
I dont have to edit time or HDD slave, not to do anything harder !

My BIOS is same as http://images.anandtech.com/doci/4499/ASUS%20BIOS%201%20-%20EZ%20Main.png

My motherboard is ASUS P8H61-M LX2 and it have latest ASUS BIOS (EFI BIOS Utility- EZ mode , I attached one link here to see).

My questions are :
1. Can I back normal BIOS like one old ?
2. How to use that ? Is there any tutorial for this ?

That is all for now.
Thanks in advance.
Trinty.

A:How to use ASUS EFI Bios Utility - EZ Mode ?

Did you read your MB manual. It has a section on the Bios that explains all the options. If you click on the Advanced Mode it will look a lot like the old bios with lots of options.

Hi there,
My sister just bought a new desktop. It was working fine and all. But this morning, she forced shut down a windows update. The next thing happen once it gets past through BIOS is
"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"
So I told her to look at the BIOS setting and it only recognise the Optical Disc Drive of
"SATA SM: TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-2"
as shown in the picture below

Is there anything I can do? I tried opening the desktop case and see everything is loose, but everything was still in tact.
Any suggestion would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

A:Hard Disk Drive not found in ASUS UEFI BIOS Utility - EZ Mode

Try reinstalling the driver, changing cables. If it can't be recognized then boot the maker's diagnostics DOS CD scan to test it - Seatools if there isn't one - or Partition Wizard bootable CD surface scan. If these won't see it you can slave it to another PC to try Disk Check or see if it will see it. If not then I'd replace it.

Do a Clean Reinstall on the replacement drive from tutorial in my signature below if you want it perfect.

I am trying to update the BIOS and went here to use their update utility:

ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P5Q-E

However, the software Afudos BIOS update tool V2.36 will not load (3rd item of the above web page's list)!?!?

What do I do now? Any other BIOS update utility compatible to the Asus P5Q-E?

I am having these problems: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...ing-start.html

You could have a corrupt file. I would down load a new copy and try it.

Here is a link to Asus for your board.

If that doesn't work here is a link to an engineering ver of AFUDOS that may work.

Now my computer appears to be functioning normally however when I restart my computer:
-the screen remains black until the windows log in screen shows. (No bios splash screen shows, I have an ASUS mobo)
-If I try to enter safe mode the computer freezes and is inoperable until it is restarted again.

On my computer, for about a little bit over a week now, I've been getting the blue screen that automatically restarts the computer. The blue screen text goes by so fast I can't even read it. I found out online that it was the SmitFraud, so I checked out the guide and downloaded the SmitFraudFix.exe. When I ran it in safe mode, it started working, but then it disappeared and all of my icons and everything on safe mode disappeared. The safe mode screen became a black screen with the words safe mode in the four corners, and I think there was the computer type or something on the top center of the screen. I couldn't run the fix properly in safe mode because after I tried running the fix, safe mode is not useable anymore.
What I tried to do was let my malwarebytes and my anti virus try to detect it, but they couldn't find it. I was thinking of system restoring my computer back 2 weeks, but I also couldn't find the restore points( as there weren't any). What can I do to get rid of the problem? It's really annoying.

Hi there

1. Which is the version of your Operation System?

2. Do you have the installation CD of the Operating System?

3. Is Normal Mode completely inaccessible?

4. Do you have a clean computer on which you can download tools in order to be able to transfer them to the infected computer?

I am guessing that something quite wrong was done in 2.20 (and it persists into 2.21). There was no such errant behavior with 2.19, as I've confirmed by reinstalling 2.19.  Works perfectly and boots promptly and the BIOS Setup utility works lickity-split with 2.19, just like it always has.  But with the install of 2.20 the behavior changed drastically.
 
Looking at the README for BIOS 2.20 this definitely seems like the culprit:
 
[Problem fixes]- Fixed an issue where fan might rotated with max speed due to not reading CPU   temperature correctly.- Fixed an issue where system might not boot to OS when attached an external monitor   and its USB3 devices.- Fixed an issue where network boot might happened at reboot after resume from suspend   by Wake On LAN.
 
 
At first I thought I had blown the BIOS update, since my screen was simply black for what seemed like 1-2 minutes after displaying the Lenovo logo and "press ENTER to interrupt" message.  I pressed ENTER repeatedly but nothing happened, for a long time.  Eventually, the hard drive activity LED on the P70 started flashing, and seemingly almost 2 minutes later, the machine came to life and boot process continued normally.
 
Then, once I entered the BIOS, I used the right-arrow key to navigate through the tabs.  No problem until I got to the Security tab and then pressed right-arrow one more time to navigate into the Boot tab... and it hung!  Didn't go ri... Read more

It's not really about overclocking, but power savings. I have not used it myself. You can certainly do without it, but if you are interested in seeing what effects lower energy usage settings have (if any) on performance in day to day use, you might be able to save some energy.

It's plugged in to the board.

What's wrong, can anything be done to fix this?

I hate to turn the utility off, but don't want to listen

A:ASUS Mo Utility Suddenly Doesn't Recognize Fan

the asus probe reports a fan problem when a fan is either running to slow or does not register at all (and therefore is considered stopped)

if the fan uses a 3-pin connector that goes into the motherboard, the yellow wire is ised to detect the fan's speed. you have to make sure that there is, at no point, a loose electrical connection, or one that is blocked by dust.

you can disable the alert in your bios, and probably in the asus probe utility as well.

Hi Seven Forums,

I have a problem with my Asus X52JK laptop.
Upon getting a new laptop and my sibling's laptop (conveniently) breaking down it was decided that I would give the X52 to her.

I backed up all of my personal files to an external HDD so no worries about retrieivng them. When I went to create the Recovery Discs through the utility mentioned in the title that all went smoothly and so I began the recovery process.

Booted from discs first and went through the moitons and when that was done I was expected the W7 installation screen however I was greeted with my old login screen with user account still there.

I repeated the process with the same result then decided to check the Recovery Utility and says partition does not exist yet I used MiniTool Partition Wizard and the partition is in fact there. I have tried to use EasyBCD to get around this but with no luck. I have spent roughly 2 days on this problem.

So is there a remedy for this or will I just have to download a Windows 7 ISO and install that?

I appreciate any help I can get.

Hello all, I've been messing with and Googling this problem all day and am stumped. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

My laptop:
Toshiba A105-S4134
XP SP2
MCE 2005
Intel T2400 Duo Core
2 GB RAM

1. Two days ago I had a glitch - a bunch of browser windows were open and the system just sort of froze up. I ended up doing a hard restart. The PC then took a longer than normal time to boot back up.

2. That made me nervous, so yesterday I made True Image images of both partitions on the HD, that is C: (OS and apps) and D: (data).

3. This morning I decided to run a memory diagnostic disk (I had memtest86+ and Windows Diagnostics CDs on hand). I set boot priority to CD/DVD ROM using Start > All Programs > Toshiba > Utilities > Toshiba Assist > Optimize > Toshiba Hardware Settings > Boot Priority

Hello,

was long time member unfortunately it seems that my account got wiped? Or im assuming you guys have some cap on non-active accounts.

Non the less, im here about my x751s. Today i turned it on and it made 5 rapid sequential beeps and goes straight to the BIO's menu.
Ive tried launch csm route, but that gives me the " No bootable driver" error, On startup ive tried esc, f1, f8, f9, f10, f11, f12 none of them work.

I opened my laptop and looked around, safely unclipped the mother board connections and nothing looks out of place i unscrewed the HDD it looks good none of the small slits are moved and the pins are also fine.

Any ideas?

Thank you,
David

One of our computers, running Windows XP, has something wrong. I suspect a virus.

When it turns on, it goes to the Welcome screen and then the BSOD.

Being the knowledgeable chap I am, I tried Safe Mode and it starts up perfectly fine.

Other than that, I have no other information unless you want what the BSOD says.

Thanks for any help.

I found a computer a while back with a asus a7v600-x board in it, and when i turn it on with my hard drive i put in it it gives me a bios rom checksum error. I heard reflashing the bios could save me here, so i went to the asus site and downloaded the latest bios for it. Im just wondering how do i reflash it, i have never done this before. And what will i need for this process? i believe it has an amd sempron 2200 in it, any tips and link would be greatly appreciated.

Hi...When I sign on to MSN Messenger 6.1, it works OK, but after a few minutes of being idle, it goes into a 'signing out' mode and the only way I can back into it, is by rebooting. I just installed the MS Win Security Update, Feb 2004 and in the same package, there was a freebee antivirus and firewall software (EZ Armor LE) which I installed too. Could these be the cause of my problems?? I would appreciate any suggestions how I can get back to using Messenger normally. My OS ..win98 se...IE 6
Thanks.

I just ran across this little utility on another forum. For those of you that find it hard to get into "Safe Mode", for whatever reason. Just download it to your desktop, click on it & you can get into "Safe Mode- Minimal", "Safe Mode-Networking", or "Safe Mode-Directory Services Repair". I've been experimenting with it just for a little while now, but it seems to work as it say's it does. With no spyware, adware, etc...
Very Handy!!

About a month Ago i got a computer virus that wont boot me into Windows 7. When i turn of my computer, it starts up with the computer logo, then freezes to a black screen with a blinking underscore in the top left hand corner not processing anything. I can't even go into safe mode, and Alt-Ctrl-Delete just restarts it. The most i can do is enter boot mode by pressing F2 and enter ASUS express Gate just fine. Does anyone have any tips or solutions for this? It would be very much appreciated by me and my family.

Well Hello Evryone!
Gautam here from india!

Well, i Recently bought this ASUS V7100 geforce2mx 400 pro tv, a PCI based graphics card! After spending literally all the 95$ i collected through the last six months, i still am in a situation where all i can do is bang my head after every 5 seconds my system crashes!

Ok, now coming to the core of the problem,
u see, i have a compaq 7500 presario with intel 810e chipset based motherboard (it really pi**es me off coz it doesnt have any AGP slot in it), anyway so that was the reason i went for this powerful PCI based graphics card!

Well, after i have inserted my card into one of the 4 PCI slots, i literally am running out of every moment of happiness in this world!

The card is very well detected by windows, i have installed the LATEST POSSIBLE DRIVERS (version 12.90 as per current release).
Now, whenever i boot my system, the card gets very well recognised in the begining, but after 5 to 6 minutes (in the windows enviorment), the ENTIRE SYSTEM FREEZEZ !!

If in case i am lucky, the system remains stable for 8 to 10 minutes!

Ok, now before i proceed to anything else, let me tell your that the compaq presario 7500 machine doesnt have lots of option which we can set in the BIOS !
So, i have fiddled with every possible IRQ (interrupt request) settings in the BIOS (BECOZ OF THIS MY ORIGINAL SETTINGS ARE ALSO LOST

Well, whenever it comes to playing games (the only reason i bought this), EVERY POSSIBLE GAME RUNS WELL TILL 2 TO 3 M... Read more

I am having a problem with my computer and need to sign into safe mode to remove a program. The problem is that I am not prompted with a sign on in safe mode. How do I remove a program without using safe mode??? or how do enable the sign on for safe mode. Thanks!

A:No sign on prompt in safe mode

Hi newbreed424,

Do you mean that when you boot up your computer and click on the F8 key repeatedly, you do not come to the menu which includes different options for bootup including safe mode? Or do you mean, that when you come to the menu which includes Safe Mode and click on this option, you do not get the logon page and user names?

Normally programs are uninstalled via add-remove programs in Normal Mode. Is there a special reason why you need to remove this program in Safe Mode? Which program is it? What problems are you having? Is it a newly installed program?

Recently I have been getting unusual BSoDs while trying to sign in from sleep mode or shortly after sleep mode. The first time this happened, it told me that the hibernation driver malfunctioned causing the BSoD, this time I don't know what it is telling me. Apparently there were a few other BSoDs too when I was at school and family were trying to use the computer.

I have a gaming keyboard, and it has backlit sections. After the BSoD, I restarted and now my PC seems to be working fine, but the top and lefthand sections are unlit (F keys, ESC, etc.). They work properly, but I thought I should just mention this.

I had multiple issues with this computer (custom built) from the getgo, but I found out that the first hard drive I had was bad. After replacing it, I haven't had any troubles at all for about the past 4-5 months. These blue screens are the first signs of any troubles I may have, so being cautious I just wanted to see if they are something normal or if I should be concerned.

I have attached the ZIP file that was made while using DM log collector.

Hi WiredHF.

Your motherboard is a Gigabyte retail one.

Code:
SystemManufacturer = Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
SystemProductName = Z97-HD3
But it is OEM license of Lenovo.

Code:
Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00497
Only possible with hackers activation exploitation which makes your windows installation counterfeit. And a counterfeit windows installation is not any worthy for troubleshooting. It is subject to BSODs and other issues.

If the activation exploitation is done without your knowledge, ask the system builder to rectify it and give you genuine windows. If the exploitation is done by yourself, get genuine windows and expect a trouble free OS.

want to restore backup files to new windows7 computer. read all the posts. successfully downloaded and installed kbid974674.
can see the external drive (MyBook) with 31gB backup file.
can see the main screen for the Restore Utility
but when doubleclick on the box next to File on the left side, that is supposed to give me a tree of options for which files to restore, it can't find any files.

if I doubleclick on the external drive's 31gB file, back under the external drive, under 'computer', it automatically goes to the Restore Utility Advanced Mode, and again doesn't find any files.

Yes, we were careful to download the version of 974674 that is for 64bit Windows7.

??What do we do now? I don't see why this won't work. Can someone give me some advice regarding what else to do to make the Restore Utility work properly?

Thank you in advance for your help.
