Enabling BIOS with Intel Mobo

Q: Enabling BIOS with Intel Mobo

I have picked up a fairly old PC with an Intel desktop mainboard and the bios is not accessible with the usual "delete" at boot up . I believe there is a switch on the board that i need to activate. I cannot find one - please does anyone know what i should be looking for and where about it might be positioned. Thx for any help.

Preferred Solution: Enabling BIOS with Intel Mobo

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.)

A: Enabling BIOS with Intel Mobo

It might as well be insert or F2 key that you have to press. The manual will help.

I really doubt th switch on the mobo thing. It would be ridiculous to force people to open up their computers (voiding the warranty) to change a BIOS setting.

A neat trick is to boot the computer without the keyboard to make the BIOS display an error message and tell you what key to press to get into setup.

I want to test Intel SGX technology on my Lenovo Tower S510 10L3-000JFM. I checked via https://github.com/ayeks/SGX-hardware that my CPU Intel Core i7-6700 supports SGX but BIOS does not, or may be not enabled (in BIOS). A BIOS update can fix this. However, a recent BIOS update from Lenovo in https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/desktops-and-all-in-ones/lenovo-s-series-all-in-ones/s51... does not explicitly specify that as I do not want to proceed to this risky operation without being sure. My question is: is this BIOS update supporting Intel SGX?

How do I enable the Intel Software Guard Extensions in BIOS?  My chip is an Intel Core i7 6500U which supports SGX; BIOS was just upgraded to 1.15, but SGX Platform Software installation fails with the error "This platform is not SGX-compatible.  Please check your SGX BIOS settings."  There are no SGX-related settings in the BIOS menu.

Hello, I have recently purchased Precision 3510 laptops with the intention of using them for research on Intel's new Software Guard Extensions (SGX). These laptops come with the required CPUs that support these new CPU instructions and (we thought) the required BIOS support as well.
In the BIOS for the laptops, there is an option for enabling SGX, but when enabled we are not able to install any of the official Intel SDKs on Windows OR Linux. Additionally, we ran an SGX test program that would dynamically detect the SGX features using CPUID and Machine Specific Registers (MSRs). It successfully detected the SGX hardware support (i.e. the SGX instructions are physically on the CPU chip), but it showed that the BIOS flags controlling the startup of SGX were not enabled (possible SGX specific MSRs have not been set). The specific CPU flag that needs to be set is described here: https://github.com/ayeks/SGX-hardware . Here is a quote from that page that describes what is needed for SGX to work, "The CPU and the motherboard BIOS must support SGX. SGX is turned off by default and must enabled via MSR.IA32_Feature_Control.SGX_Enable. Only the BIOS can make changes to the IA32_Feature_Control".
For reference, we are using the latest BIOS version for our model - version A07. Also, the CPU we have is the Intel Core i5 - 6300HQ CPU @ 2.3GHz. 
I hope we can resolve this issue in a timely manner as we are not able to use these laptops for their intended purpose... Read more

Hello everyone,

I recently purchased a P4 2.8Ghz processor and installed it on my board and nothing happened. The machine started but the HD's didn't start and the screen remained blank.
I attempted to update the BIOS with the provided updaters from Intel with no success.

I know that this mobo originally came out of a Gateway box (E-4000) and also tried finding a BIOS updater from Gateway. They, of course, no longer support this board/computer.

Hi! First time poster looking for a little help. I'm building a system around an Intel DX38BT motherboard. I was able to install XP fine. After I installed the MB device drivers and rebooted, the USB ports became unresponsive. I can get into and manipulate BIOS fine, but once the bootcodes disappear it seems like all the USB ports lose power - the numlock on the keyboard and the laser on the mouse go out. Windows boots, and hitting the power switch causes Windows to initiate a shutdown, so the system isn't locked. I've tried the following:

Booting from the DVD drive - system doesn't respond to KB at the "Press any key to bood from CD" prompt.
Tried all available USB ports
Removed all non-essential hardware (including FP USB ports)
Reseting BIOS to "Optimal" settings
Resetting BIOS using the HW jumper
Removing all hardware and reseating the motherboard
Replacing the CPU (longshot, but I was getting desperate...)
Removing the hard disk on the off chance USB drivers loaded *very* early
Booting from a USB drive (yea, I thought it was pointless too, but again...)
None of the above helped. I'm leaning towards "there's an issue" with the mb, but can't explain why installing new drivers in Windows would cause the issue. Thoughts..?
 

A:USB ports power off after BIOS on Intel DX38BT mobo

I think it is a simple case of not having all your drivers and downloads installed.
The secret is usually in the Chipset, rather than the BIOS, but also in the Embedded Controller... and other downloads. If you have all the possible downloads installed (BIOS, Chipset, Audio, Video Graphics, Ethernet, etc.) , then run Microsoft Windows Updates four times, rebooting after each install, and adding all your other microsoft software, you should see everything working.
After each round of updates... drivers, then Microsoft... check your device manager to see what is missing, or what is showing up as yellow or red alert flags.
Then go to www.belarc.com and download the free Belarc Advisor. Once downloaded, run updates. Then Belarc will give you a complete list of what is installed, and what updates are still needed. The Free Everest is better, but is not updated as frequently as needed... Belarc always shows any missing updates.

I replaced the mobo on my Dell 5510. Purchased from Dell. Sticker on mobo says BIOS ver A05. About every other day I get blue screen and physical dump of memory. My system info says my BIOS ver is A07. How do I go about changing BIOS? Is it as simple as pulling battery for 15 seconds? Some have offered this suggestion but I get a little worried at "friends" advice.
 

A:Replaced MOBO on Dell 5510 BIOS sticker on MOBO says A05, system in still has BIOS of A07

Removing the battery won't change the BIOS version. You need to download the version you require from the Dell site. From Windows you "flash" the BIOS. Take your time preparing for this. If anything goes wrong you will wreck your motherboard.

The above link is to the HP specs for the machine. The mobo is overheating and yes, i've done all the reg maint stuff. Let's call it dead, bury it and buy a new bride. I did upgrade the video and sound last year but those devices should be good for a few more yrs. This pc is strictly for gaming, music and my embroidery machine software.

I have never replaced a motherboard (nor cpu) before though I've done all else. My concern is that in my eagerness to get this girl back up an running, I overshoot and choose a board that won't support the current devices. I'd love to replace the cpu right now too, but w/ 2 bdays and christmas coming, I can't afford it.

So help me, geniuses. What motherboards would support the pos Pentium D 820 (S) DC 2.8 GHz socket 775, but still allow me to celebrate my 42nd birthday with a new cpu (a quad? ohh ahhh) next april? I have searched and searched, and it's probably staring me in the face, but I can't figure out the mobos.

I'm guessing some of these would work, but again, brain doesn't work as well as it should and I just cant figure it out. http://techreport.com/articles.x/8666/1

Hi all, I have a T410 that's from 2010 with the i5 520m cpu. I bought it used recently and I don't think the bios has ever been upgraded. When I follow the regular instructions of entering BIOS --> Config --> CPU, I saw a menu of four choices. The bottom two wereIntel(R) Virtualization Technology [DISABLED]Intel(R) VT-d Feature [DISABLED]I tried to change them, but strangely the menu only let me navigate through the first two choices (I can't recall them exactly now but they didn't seem to have anything to do with virtualization), nothing seemed to allow me to access the bottom two choices...  How should I go about fixing this properly?  I want to be very careful with upgrading/flashing BIOS as I really don't want to end up with a brick Thanks

A:Enabling Intel VT-x in a T410

Look for your BIOS Version and post it(You can find it on the start page of your BIOS)VT-x is supported by your CPU, but maybe there are conflicting settings..Maybe you really have to update the BIOS but that shouldn't be a real problem...Use a disk image, hook your thinkpad to the power and let it be for 20 minutes or so...

John - I'm not familiar with your motherboard or BIOS, however my first suggestion would be to head over to the ASUS website (http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx) and download updated drivers. There's an update under the Utilities category called "Microsoft KB817900 USB fail to enter S3 patch file for Windows XP." Try that.

I would also make sure that your BIOS is the most recent version.

Despite the warnings, I tried enabling RAID in BIOS (Intel chipset) and almost fried my Win 7 installation. So, I now believe for myself that the only way to enable RAID is to also reinstall Windows 7.

Does anyone know whether a data partition on the Windows boot drive would be affected?

Are there any clear advantages to RAID in a one-drive system? (I did not see a way to enable NCQ).

A:Enabling RAID in BIOS

I looked into old RAID technology because of the many problems it is giving with Win7 installations. It can require reformatting the drives with loss of data to set up RAID.

It also needs two drives to be RAID, I believe, as it is redundant array.

RAID is completely redundant IMO with drive imaging now even built into Windows 7. Best to set up modern AHCI config of your SATA controllers.

Just load the AHCI drivers from your mobo CD/Downloads page into the installer.

Hi!

I'm sorry for posting such a horrible mistake. I'll just break it down really easely and hope for someone to be kind enough to resque my stupid ***.

I just upgraded my OS from W7 to W10 doing a clean install and figured out I had to install a bunch of essential drivers all over again, so I though it would be a good idea to start out with my motherboard. My motherboard is a "P45 NEO-F", so I went over to it's support page (link) to download all of the latest drivers and utilities for that model. Then I saw the "BIOS" section, and thougt I should flash the BIOS first of all, for no reason. So I downloaded the "AMI BIOS 4.4", which was the latest one, extracted the files on to a USB-stick, booted the whole thing up, went to M-FLASH in BIOS, chose the "A7519IMS.440"-file on the stick, flashed the BIOS, rebooted and now I get a "bad checksum".

I didn't even take a backup of the old file from BIOS, because I couldn't even think of this not working. Bonus points for that!

So what do I do now, being the sorry sod that I am?

I just bought a refurb Dell XPS 420 w/ Q9300, running Vista Home Premium x64 and downloaded/installed an activated version of Win 7 Ult x64 on an 80GB SSD [Sata1] I bought for it; dual booted w/ Vista x64 on old hard drive [Sata0].

W7 x64 was running stable and instantly fast, I wanted to enable RAID0 on the old hard drive [Sata0] and another new hard drive [Sata2]

I entered Intel Maxtrix Storage Manager (Ctrl-I), creating a RAID0 volume on [Sata0] and [Sata2].

After reboot, it says "No boot device available" after BOIS screen.

My subsequent boot attempts include (roughly in order):
1. disable RAID0 volume, boot to [Sata1]
2. disable [Sata0] and [Sata2], boot to [Sata1]
3. disable [Sata1], boot to CD/DVD-drive (W7 install/boot)
4. disable CD/DVD-drive, boot to USB flash (W7 install/boot)

I have done some digging around and cannot seem to find a solution. I have the use of my notebook (w/ broken DVD burner, still reads) running Win7 Ult x86 so apparently I cannot make my USB flash drive x64 bootable from what I've read. I also have 2-USB hard drives (80/250GB) and an eSata 2x docking station available, but no eSata on notebook.

A:no boot after enabling BIOS RAID0

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

You should be able to create a bootable USB for a 64-bit install using a 32-bit OS. Some users report challenges, but I suspect PEBKAC.

I believe that you stepped on your boot files on SATA0.

I ordered Thinkpad p70 with RAID 1 HDD's and planned on adding aftermarket m.2 drives (Toshiba OCZ RD400) to setup an m.2 SSD RAID 1 array... First machine they sent failed to recognize m.2 drives.  Now I have a replacement machine with BIOS version 2.08 that will recognize my m.2 drives without a problem, as long as the RAID option in the BIOS is disabled.  As soon as I enable it, it only recognizes the SATA drives and the m.2 drives disappear.  It's strange that when you select m.2 SSD RAID it will only recognize SATA attached drives and allow you to set up a "m.2 SSD" RAID volume with those drives... Very disappointed I can not setup a hardware RAID array with m.2 drives.  Even more disappointed with phone support... calling in is a nightmare where they just pass you back a forth between warranty (which only deals with hardware issues) and premium software support (which says they 'don't help with BIOS, only things inside Windows').   Seems like a BIOS bug or some kind of hardware whitelisting... Does anyone else have a similar issue? I'd appreciate any insight on the matter.

Hey Guys ,

when i tried to safe mode it's stuck at classPNP.sys and start windows normally is stuck at the windows logo and seriously i need help to get to bios so i can change the boot sequence to put the installation or repair disc

A:Enabling GUI Boot - Entering BIOS

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Are you able to access the Advanced Boot Options by pressing the F8 key at startup? It should list the following options:


Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable low-resolution video (640 x 480)
Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
Directory Services Restore Mode
Debugging Mode
Disable automatic restart on system failure
Disable Driver Signature Enforcement
Start Windows Normally
I'd be inclined to go for Last Known Good Configuration first.

Hi, We have a script using the HP BiOS Utility to change the vtx setting but we are currently experiencing problems. This script has been developped by a 3rd party and its been succesfully tested on multiple HP Models. In our environment, we are using the following HP workstations:HP Compaq 8100 Elite SFFHP Compaq 8200 Elite SFFHP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF By default, our BIOS doesn't have any password, the script will run the HP BIOS Utility with admin privilege, add a temporary password, enable the Vtx setting and remove the password. On the next reboot, we will run our software that needs vtx enable but the program will not see  that vtx is enable. If we enter the BIOS manually,  the Vtx setting will be enable, the only way that the software will recognize that vtx is enable is if we do another change to the BIOS and save that change.  It seems like Windows is not seeing the change that the BIOS utility did.  The intriging part is that on some machines, the script will work and the software will see the change. We have run the script numerous times, on multiple machines and on our different models but we can determine any patern and identify why it sometimes work. I was wondering if this is a known issue and if anyone already encoutered this. Thank you,

Hello,

I have purchased a new video card and I think I know what to do when it arrives... just not sure about the steps.

Ok, so I'm currently using onboard video. I was told that all I need to do is stick it in the PCI-E x16 slot and plug the power cable into the video card -- then enable it in BIOS.

How exactly do I enable it in BIOS? And do I need to disable the onboard video somehow?
Step by step instructions would be very helpful.

I am using an Asus M2NPV-VM Motherboard.

I just got an HP h8-1237c, which has an i5-2320 processor. I thought it was a good move, but I need to run other copies of windows in VirtualBox, which I can do fine in my old ASUS i5 computer. This one tells me I can't because I can't enable VT-x, as there's no place on the bios to do this. HP tech support was not helpful at all, and I even had to define virtualization to the tech.

Is there a way around this so I can install and run a 64 bit OS on this new PC, such as Windows 7, 64bit, or even 64 bit linux?

Thanks for the guidance in advance.

So recently I purchased a Galaxy GTX 460 768MB video card. I was previously using a BFG Tech GTX 275. When I first installed the GPU I was on an ASUS P5B Deluxe WiFI Edition motherboard. I am now on an ASRock P64 Extreme4 motherboard. I mention the old mobo because the problem has been the same regardless. So I link the issue to the GPU.

Anywho, the new Galaxy card on boot, displays it's own Bios information before the mobo Bios page shows up. It's actually the first thing I see on my monitor. It just simply displays Galaxy Bios version (etc. etc. etc). It doesn't last for more than 3-4 seconds, but I personally feel it's an unnecessary delay. Especially since I'm so adamant about computer efficiency and I try to get my boot up times as fast as possible. Just a personal hobby I enjoy! So I was curious if there is a way to disable this initial Bios screen? I did many google searches and couldn't find the problem to a a perfect description. Some people did mention that it has to do with a motherboard conflict, but that's why I mentioned bother motherboards. One was old, and the one I'm on now is brand new. I've never purchased a Galaxy card until now, so I'm curious if it's unique to their brand? I've never updated Bios on a video card before and I'm not sure if it'd cure the problem either. Anyone familiar with this situation? Thank you!

Edit: I'll take a picture of the Bios screen and post it quick. I just thought about doing it, but I typed this entire message and I can't ... Read more

Lenovo, it is much appreciated if you can provide an updated BIOS that allows the owner to enable/disable the hotkey function.The advantage is, that the owner can make a clean maiden Windows installation without 3rd party software, or use other operating systems such as Linux that lacks this feature of switching between the hotkey function and standard behavior for F1-F12 keys. Looking forward to this, as it gives me freedom of choice and it also is a key for buying Lenovo products future-wise. Thanks!

Greetings Everyone,

My laptop suddenly shut down and sometimes showing Whea_Uncorrectable_Error(BSOD) on loading while logo shows up but when I disable the second core and set it to "always low" my laptop boots normally. I tried to reinstall the heat sink with new Thermal Paste(maybe this is low quality TP) but still no luck

Some relevant info:
System specs: Toshiba Satellite L505-S6959, Windows 10 x64 Enterprise, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6500, 4GB RAM DDR2, Insyde Bios 1.50

Blue Screen View has red highlight on hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe

I think the cpu over heats or some software error
Please don't expect my reply immediately
Thanks for the reply in advance

Ok so I'm at the point of upgrading to a newer CPU and Motherboard and I need some direction. Intel seem to be offering some processors with tasty clockspeeds which are similair prices to some of the Athlon 64 range. Do these Athlons handle 32 bit applications better than a dedicated 32-bit Intel?

I have £300 - £350 to spend on both a CPU and Motherboard. I do kind of fancy the 3200 or 3400+, but I want to hear a good arguement to make me consider going Intel, just to help me in weighing up my options.

In terms of motherboard I dont know whether to go with a socket 939 or 754? I have been reading about various motherboards and the following seem to be popular: 'MSI K8T Neo 2', 'ASUS A8V Deluxe' and 'ASUS SK8V'.

What do you think I should go for?
 

A:Do I go Intel or AMD? What is best Mobo?

It all depends on what you will be doing the most on your machine. Games & compiling are faster on the Athlon64 platforms & media encoding is faster on P4 platforms.

If you go Intel with a LGA775, a lot of your budget will be spent on the expensive DDR-2 memory. If you go for a Socket-939 (dual channel) Athlon64 system, it's the CPUs themselves that are expensive.

The good bang for buck systems right now are Socket-754 (single channel) for Athlon64s or Socket-478 for Pentium 4s but both have a limited upgrade path.

I need some good advice for MOBO.

I visit Asus site but i cant seem find Cheap MOBO or im missing it?

I visit Intel Site and found the cheapest MOBO for my processor which is DH55PJ and max is 8 GIG memory which is mostly $70 - $80 cost.

Im thinking 100$ for MOBO?

If their is a cheap max 16Gig memory would be good.

A Pricelist link would be good.
Also what is the difference on Intel Extreme Series, Media, Classic, Executive and Essential MOBO?

A:MOBO for Intel i5-760

ASUS makes good motherboards with Intel chipsets and 16GB memory support, check their website or an online retailer in your country.
