Preferred Solution: stuck insydeh20 setup utility

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.)

Dear Sir,I have Acer V5-473PG laptop for more than a year now and using W8.1. My problem now is (since a month ago) every time I boot my laptop, the screen will come to "insydeH20 setup utility". Then I have to press escape, press enter for "Yes" and the screen will continue to Windows. FYI, my W8.1 is working very fine as far as I can see. This happens every time whenever I boots/starts my laptop. Is this a bad sign for me? Is my laptop going to R.I.P? Thanks in advance.

fenolly75,
 
Sorry to hear you are having problems, there are a couple things we can try:
 
Enter the BIOS and restore defaults to make sure there wasn't something changed accidentally.
Attempt a start up repair on your system to see if that resolves the issue.
Attempt a system restore to before you started having this problem.
Perform a refresh to try and repair the Windows operating system files, some programs may be lost with that function, which was why I listed it last.

okay, guys I praying for help! This is my situation.

I own a HP Pavilion dv6-6c10us Laptop, AMD Quad-Core A6-3420M Accelerated Processor.

Something happen to the computer that required me to reinstall windows. I booted the cd/dvd from start go through the process of installation however once I get to the point in which is ask drive to install it on..there are no available drives although my harddrive is in the computer.

I've heard that in order to get pass this step I have to change my bios to IDE ...but in BIOS setting I see 0 SETTINGS TO change anything to anything...again I've heard this is a common problem when using insydeh20 setup utility.

Now again I can't boot up my computer because there is no OS on my hard drive. consider that. IS there any possible way I can either get to the required tab in bios or is there another way that I can resolve this problems..its been months and I still cant resolve this problem.

if I could update my bios..im sure this would help..either way..please help

A:Windows 7 installation:insydeh20 setup utility

I'm not sure I can help, but I can give you a suggestion. Boot from the DVD, at the first window, do not select your language, hold down the shift key and press F10, you will get a command prompt. Type diskpart and press enter. Wait for the window to respond diskpart, type list disk and press enter You should see every disk in your machine. That should tell you the disk is there and functioning. When finished type exit and press enter, it should take you back to X sources, type exit and press enter again and you should be back at the select your language screen. It should not matter if you are in IDE or AHCI, if you have a raid array, you may have to load the floppy F6 driver. Most of those options should be in your BIOS. Just sometimes they are in a submenu and pretty well hidden. You should be looking for sata controller or sata mode or something similar. Different brands call it different things, but they are all pretty close to what I said you should look for.

I have an Asus laptop and I got the notification that I can upgrade to Windows 10 if I wanted to. So, I clicked to update it and it did and when I restarted it, my mouse pad would not work. I was able to go into programs and click repair for the mouse and then it worked. I used my laptop for a few minutes and everything was fine and then I closed it and set it aside. Later that day, I opened it and I clicked on Chrome and I got the hour glass. I waited for a few minutes and nothing happened. So, I pressed and held the power button down to turn it off and turned it back on a few seconds later.
When I turned it back on I was at the Aptio Setup Utility screen and no matter what I pushed, I couldn't exit. My battery died and so I plugged it in and turned it back on. This time it said that it was being diagnosed. After a long while, it said they couldn't fix it and gave me the option of restarting it or advanced options. I clicked advanced options and chose to go back to Windows 8.1 hoping that it would return to normal. After that, I assumed it was doing that and I left it to make lunch for my son. When I came back to it and it had been awhile it was just a blue screen and was like that for a long time, so I again shut it down.

I went online and did a search and someone said to enable the launch CSM on the boot section and to disable the secure boot menu and then to restart and I would be able to get to the advanced options/recovery screen. So, I did do that and was ab... Read more

my Asus laptop froze and when I restarted it, a screen that said ?Aptio Setup Utility? popped up. I googled it and tried what everyone was recommending:
Select the Boot menu in the Aptio setup utility, select 'Launch CSM' and change to enable

Select the Security menu n the Aptio setup utility, select 'Secure Boot Control' and change to disable

Select Save & Exit and press 'yes'

Hold down the power button until the unit switches power off completely

Switch back on and continually press the F9 button for about ten seconds; this should now allow the unit to boot up into the Windows Recovery menu

Select 'Advanced Start Up' and wait until the recovery menu appears

Select ' Advanced Options'

Select 'System Restore' and select a date prior to when the problem occurred?.

The only problem is that once I switch the computer back on and try to press F9, it does nothing. I get a black screen that says ?Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key? I can get back into the Aptio Utility screen from here but I can?t get into my computer. How can I fix this and get back in???? I don?t know much about computers so I?m totally stuck and I NEED what?s on there for business.

You might have knocked loose the cables for the hard drive. It is saying it has nothing to boot from and since you were messing around inside it sounds like you may have knocked something loose.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5000 series laptop that keeps getting stuck in the Aptio utility loop and BIOS stuff and doesn?t allow me to load Windows 10 successfully. The other day my PC randomly had a blue screen of death and crashed and now it?s preventing me from getting back to my OS ever since. Sometimes upon booting it loads a PCI white screen saying ?Hard drive not installed.?

I ran the ePSA diagnostics to check and scan the system, but it only keeps saying it finished the tests with a yellow caution sign next to my hard drive. Is there anything I can do to get a successful boot? I just don?t want to lose everything I was working on.

A:I need BIOS, not HP Setup Utility

Hi: Why do you need to change the setting to IDE? A BIOS update won't add that feature anyway. If you are trying to reinstall XP and get the blue screen stop error, simply add the SATA AHCI drivers. See this guide below.  Read the Intel section and then read the downloadable document for how to slipstream all of the sata drivers. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/SATA-drivers-for-XP-solution-on-... I have zipped up and attached the drivers you need to slipstream below...

I am working on a Toshiba Satellite with Insyde H2O bios. It says to use F2 for setup and F12 for boot manager.

I've tried all the function keys, as well as esc and del and they only get me to Windows Boot Manager. (This includes F2.)

The machine has Vista that stops loading when it gets to the network drivers. Could a corrupt BIOS be the cause? If I download a new BIOS can I install it from the command prompt?

If the BIOS is still OK are there other ways to get into setup?

(Meanwhile F2 works just fine on my Dell Lattitude)

Hi
I bought a new laptop (Asus x75a) and when I received it I turned it on and it went into the aptio setup utility so I set the time and date and went over to save and exit only to return to the same screen. I've restored defaults and loading optimised settings but it always returns to it.
I disabled secure boot and enabled csm and this time it loaded the asus screen and went to a black screen saying reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device.
It should be preinstalled with win8 and no where in the user manuals does it detail the setup utility.
I've searched the web for a solution but I'm yet to find one. I've contacted the seller but I thought whilst I wait I would seek help here.

You need to remove the battery for a longer time like about 45-60 minutes. If this does not work remove battery at night and go to sleep. Wake up in morning and check your computer. Also do not forget to unplug the AC cord as well.

Hello. Please forgive me for this off-topic-post, but i would like to tell everybody, why i really like APTIO Setup Utility, the best BIOS-Settings.


The great advantage is not only the great user interface and the accurate help descriptions (that Ins?deH20 also has), but what i really love is:
The APTIO Setup-Utility does have ?Boot-Override? in the Exit-Tab‼
I don't have to press F12 to override. I can simply go to the BIOS-Settings. And if i am inside of the BIOS-Settings, i can simply override without exiting the settings and press F12. That's Aptio's greatest advantage. My Samsung 700G7A-S02 does also have APTIO.
Aptio Setup Utility Screenshot:


Other Setup Utilities:



Disadvantage: If Windows is hibernated, DualBoot (e.g. Hiren's Boot CD) is not supported, which did already cause a problem. But other BIOS-Firmwares do also not allow DualBoot with hibernation.

Please note, that this is no sneaky advertisement. This is just my opinion. The screenshots are not from my Computer.

Hi all, I am new so please bear with me.

Just recently I tried to dual boot xp and fedora and was successful, but then realised that everything had slowed down quite a bit and my wife just wanted it all back to normal.

So I repaired the ms boot record with the recovery console and xp now boots directly from bios, but I now get the set up utility that gives me the option of booting xp or the setup utility for a new xp install. It won't just boot xp straight, and if I leave it it will go straight to the setup utility and I can either install xp again, repair it (which I have already done) or exit. If I exit then the next time I reboot it all happens again.

Please tell me how to get rid of the set up utility so I can go back to normal.

I own a Dell Dimension 3000 with Windows XP. A month ago I got the BSOD with the 000000024 error. Since I wanted to upgrade the 40 GB hard drive anyway I purchased a Western Digital 80 GB hard drive. I installed the HD and the computer beeped two times and took me to the "strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility" screen. If I hit F1 it just repeats the same command. If I hit F2 it takes me to the BIOS screen. When I go into drive configuration it shows that the primary master drive is the hard drive and the secondary drive is the cd rom device. the diskette drive A is off since my computer does not have a floppy disk drive. When I try to save changes and exit it beeps twice and takes me back the F1, F2 screen again. I have tried resetting the computer by pulling the battery out for 10 minutes and replacing but nothing has changed. Any ideas?
 

A:I can't get past the F1 to retry boot, F2 setup utility

Is the date right? Is the battery good?

Is the drive set to autodetect in BIOS and/or does BIOS recognize all the correct drive parameters?

What is on the new drive? Did you install an operating system? If it is blank, nothing will boot up.
