Preferred Solution: Enabling GUI Boot - Entering BIOS

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

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.

Hope I gave enough info for someone to come up with an easy fix. If I could boot to the W7 x64 install DVD that I made with the non-booting PC, I would have just done a clean install by now, but it refuses to boot to the CD/DVD drive. It actually wouldn't even boot to DVD to install W7 x64 in the first place, I had to... Read more

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.

Hello,

I own Satellite Pro C50-A-1E2.

Default hdd has been replaced by a kingston v300 ssd.I also activated fast boot.
I'm desperately trying to enter BIOS but without success.

I tried every possible combination(Esc,delete,f1,f2,f8,fn+esc,fn f1...)

I found that piece of info via googling : "hold down f2 then press power".But still no success.
Any help with my problem?

Thanks.

A:Satellite Pro C50-A-1E2: Problem entering BIOS after fast boot activation

Hi

Fast boot can be enabled and disabled also using the Toshiba software called ?Desktop Assist?. Within this tool you would find the Toshiba HWSetup and this software part should contain the Fast boot option.

Check it.

By the way: for some notebook series pressing INS button and then F2 worked too.

I seem to have a very weird problem with my laptop, I am normally a linux user, and have due to work been needing win10.  I decided to install win10 on a second internal ssd by unmounting the cd , and mount a caddy with space for another ssd. I removed my linux ssd, before I installed windows, so no os would be able to interrupts the installation procedure, or atleast interfere with it. After completing the installation, I have been unable to turn on my laptop, the only response i see is the power led blinking twice, and thats it.  The weird part here is,  if I leave it for a couple of days, uncharged and with the batteries out, it will either startup by itself, or start up when I press the power button.  And then go back to the previous state, when I turn it off. It should be noted that I have previously done this, without no problems.. So this is a bit weird for me.

Under the Virtualization Support bios menu I have the following options enabled:+Enable Intel Virtualization Technology+Enable VT for Direct I/O But when I enable Trusted Execution, the system will reboot, pass the POST screen, immediately restart, and then pass the POST screen again and lock at the Intel Storage Matrix screen. Is this the expected behavior with this bios option enabled, or is it a bios problem?

What does it say the default factory setting is for that option on or off? If it says off keep it off and stop trying to mess with things you dont fully understand untill you read about bios options what they do and if the laptop benefits or supports such active functions.

System Specifications:- X1 Yoga (Gen 3) with i7-8650U (vPro) and 16GB RAM- BIOS Version: 1.21- Purchased June 2018 Just last week I enabled the Thunderbolt device support in Pre-Boot environment under BIOS (refer attached image). After saving the settings I was never able to restart the system. There was no display (BIOS splash screen) - just the blank screen with keyboard lights on. Pressing F1 gave me a single beep but screen was just dead black, though I could see the screen's backlight. Dropped the machine to Lenovo service center and they have confirmed that motherboard replacement would be necessary. I am surprised (and sad) that merely changing a BIOS setting renders this premium business laptop non-functional! I am also afraid that if I happen to enable Thunderbolt setting in BIOS again, will this scary issue recur and render my machine useless?Lenovo - Please rectify this bug or remove this setting in BIOS completely. I am afraid that after expiry of base warranty if I happen to enable this setting again, who will pay for motherboard replacement? Is Lenovo planning any recalls because of this widely reported BIOS bug issue?

HI, Please skip to paragraph six for the actual issue I am having--the preceding paragraphs include info that may help to identify how to fix this. I am posting this using my HP desktop running Windows 7 as my Lenovo Ideapad 110 cannot connect to internet as explained below: Firstly, Sorry if I am breaking community guidelines in any way with this post. I did multiple searches but only came up with "forgot my BIOS password-how can I reset it" type posts. I am looking for urgent help to get back into the "BIOS" of my Lenovo IdeaPad 110 running preinstalled Windows 10. Everything was running fine until yesterday. This is when I made the mistake of thinking I knew more about the system than I actually seem to lol :/ So, yesterday--I entered the "BIOS" screen upon startup using F2 (function key+F2). I went on to disable wireless connection ability (to test something unrelated), and also switched Boot from strait UEFI boot mode to legacy/UEFI boot-with UEFI being the default boot option.  I don't know if any of the above have to do with the issue I am now having but I wanted to share it just in case. Here is the real issue as of now: Also yesterday at the same time while in "BIOS", I also went on to set an "admin password", the one you must type in before you can even get to the lenovo splash screen to enter "BIOS".

Recently something strange happened with my pc and every keyboard I tried to use doesn't work.So I thought by formatting it the issue might be fixed,but since keyboards don't work I can't enter boot menu.Is there any other way to format it?
 

A:How to format my pc without entering bios?

You will have to remove the hard drive and format it in another pc.
But you can't install Windows O/S on the second pc as it won't run on your original pc.
After you have formatted the hard drive and fitted it back in the original pc, you might find the keyboard works properly again.
This assumes that you have the original Windows DVD and product key, or you have a saved image of your 'C' drive complete to copy back again.
( I would be more worried about why none of your keyboards work, but if you can reinstall Windows again that would solve any keyboard driver issues anyway.)
Hope that makes sense.

My daughter has Win 7 Professional running on a 2013 vintage Dell desktop and would like to make sure that the bios is configured to start from the optical drive when a CD or DVD is in the optical drive. She has a Macrium Reflect Rescue Media on a CD and in the event of a HDD crash or related OS failure she wants to be sure that she can boot her PC to enter the Macrium Restore feature.

She has not been able to enter the bios setup - with the Dell PC one does not see a bios setup screen during normal boot up and she is unsure when to tap F2 or F10 (the common keys used) or other key to enter the bios.

Anyone have suggestions or guidance for entering the bios?

The key for your Sony model is F11. As you power the laptop on, continuously tap the F11 key until the Vaio logo screen disappears.

That should do it.

Hello to everyone on the forums! I have a strange issue with my Lenovo Y700. Here's the thing: everything works just fine, along with the GPU (I tested it, there seems to be no hardware issue, since the GPU works just fine in demanding 3D applications), but the GPU only works after I access BIOS during boot! Without that, the card is not working at all, and Windows 10 says the card was stopped because it encountered errors (the infamous error 43). That started happening after updating to the latest BIOS version. This seems completely random, although I have tested multiple times and the result is always the same - tens of restarts without accessing BIOS, and I get the error every single time; similarly, I get the card to work properly every time I access BIOS during boot. No turning on/off of the card, no drivers reinstalls inbetween. Simply: start without accessing BIOS - not working, restart with access BIOS on the way - working, another restart with no BIOS - not working. I am using the latest video drivers from NVIDIA (375.70), I have had ~369 previously and saw the same issue. I tried updating BIOS again, but it won't let me install the same version on the current one (screenshot of my BIOS version attached). I'm on a fresh install of Windows 10, 64bit (same thing happened on the old system installation, so it seems irrelevant). Additionally, when I was trying to update BIOS, cdcn53ww.exe said "your machine does not match with this bios", wh...

I have been rebuilding my wifes computer after her other one fried. I put in a Asus A7N8X-X MB (older board but had never been used) with an AMD 2500+ and replaced every other component except sound and video cards. I have had a few snags getting it going. It seems to run fine now except the bios resets the date and processor speed when powered down for a while. I replace the battery on the board and thought it was cured but it reset everything again after being off for a few hours. I checked the battery and it tested good. Another thing is that after i reset the clock and processor speed (or any time I check the BIOS) after I save the settings it will not restart and I have to manually reset it and then it boots up fine.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Forgive me if you`ve already tried all this.

Try clearing the cmos.

If it`s still a no go, then I`d suggest taking the heatsink off and after cleaning off the old thermal paste/pad, applying some new thermal paste and reattaching the heatsink.

Check the mobo for bulging or leaking capacitors. See HERE for more info.

Try a different psu.

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.

Hello Lodgik mate is this the laptop you are trying to install on or the old Dell? which is what I think you are trying to install to.

Mate if you are using the Dell the just get a new hard drive and be done with it. Mind you I have the exact same model Dell that you have and I don't know if the specs would be up to it as mine only has 2GB RAM and some slow old CPU so be prepared for a fairly slow machine and don't forget you will need a 32bit version of 7 and if you do go new hard drive you can get the OEM 7 and that is going to save you a lot of money even if yo up the HDD and some more RAM.

Some system specs on the Dell would be handy - Speccy - Download < download from piriform and post back results of the run using the XP.

This has been discussed before. When using an external monitor you cannot access the bios as the graphics are loading after BIOS. When booting you do not see the Lenovo logo, only the Windows starting screen, correct?

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? Or not? Any help or resources are welcomed. Last BIOS update is on 01/09/2016 and last CPU microcode update is on 07/01/2016.













Solved!

A:Enabling Intel SGX in BIOS

May I know your current BIOS version? And you need to know if M0UKT31A (released on 22 Jun 2018) support SGX, is that right?

I need to enable Wake on Lan in BIOS for 300 laptops. Is there a utility like Dell's DCCU that I can run an .exe to update the BIOS settings on these laptops. We currently using Carbon's and Yoga's.
