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.

Helloto the point: i want to underclock the speed of memory from 1333 to 800. But to do that, i need to go into BIOS Advanced option (chipset) and here is the problem. There is no advanced option in my BIOS version 3.7 in my Z500 ideapad. Is there any chance of getting there ? Or this option is locked ?

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over, any suggestions? Thanks!

For some reasons, when I when to my BIOS, i found my Video Ram option of 128MB, but i was not able to edit that option since i have 4 GB of RAM. I would like to seek help in solving this problem as I really want to edit my Video Ram to gain better performance in games. I really hope to seek replies in solving this problem. Thank you!

A:Why isn't the Dedicated Video Ram option available in my BIOS

You don't give details on which Acer Laptop model you have but the BIOS is probably locked by the OEM due to configuration limits. The OEM settings will most likely provide the best performance available for a given model. If there's an available slot, you may be able to add a video adaptor to increase video performance. That will depend on what model you have.

My W540 has Nvidia KM2100 graphics card. I have a dock, so, to enable Nvidia KM2100 for external monitors connected to the dock, I changed Video Settings in BIOS from "Standard" to "Advanced".  Then, strange thing start to happen. When close the lid, laptop goes to sleep. When I open the lid, laptop wakes up and I can use it for roughly 2 seconds before screen suddenly goes blank and it automatically reboots. There is no BSOD or crash dump. It just reboots. This happens every time I close and open the lid. Basically, I can't use "sleep" feature. This is very annoying. The OS is Windows 10 Creator Update with the latest graphics drivers for both Intel HD4600 and Nividia KM2100. As soon as I revert Video Settings in BIOS from "Advanced" to "Starndard", which sadly disables Nvidia graphics card for external monitors, this strange behavior goes away. Any solutions?  Thanks in advance.

Hello @awaise17, Good to see you back on the forums.  Now lets take a look at your video memory issue.  Thanks you for the pics by the way.  It is nice to have a visual.  Now the memory that you where pointing at in the second pic is dynamic.  So at that moment you system was using that much video memory out of the possible 4GBNow as for you COD modern warfare issue.  I am note exactly sure why this would happen.  I know myself I have a notebook that i can play WOW on and have it cranked right up.  Now when I tried to install and play Splinter Cell, it would not run.  Yet when I installed Battlefield that game ran just fine.  I thought maybe it was the copy of Splinter Cell was a bad copy so I went and picked up another.  Same issue.  Another issue I have run into with gaming is with my one computer I upgraded to windows 8.1.  On this computer when i run the install it goes all the way through but when i go to actually run the game i get a black screen with a cursor and nothing else. So I found a little helper out there called Can You RUN it.  it will allow you to test your specs and find out if your game will run or will not run.  Here is the link CAN YOU RUN IT! With this you will find out what the issue is.  You can have all the memory in the world but that is only the tip of the iceburg when it comes to playing games. I hope this helps.  Please...

Hey,
I have a HP Pavilion notebook. A bit older I think. It had built in windows Vista Home Premium. Somehow my hard disk crashed and I bought a new one. I installed windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and updated to service pack 1. I made a system image using windows default recovery console. Everything was fine. But today I needed to restore my computer to a previous restore point. Every time I press F8 to get to the advanced boot option I see everything is okay except the "repair your computer" option. Somehow the "repair your computer" option disappeared. I tried ctrl+F11 button and the F11 button too. F11 button worked for my previous vista home premium but for Win-7 it's the F8 key. Can anyone help me with this please? How may I get the "repair your computer" option back? Is there any way to edit advanced to boot option to get that option back? I would be needing it in case of system image recovery. Please I don't want to reinstall the O/S once again. Please somebody help me.

A:Advanced boot option doesn't show the option "repair your computer"!

On my clean OS install, the "repair your computer" option also does not appear in the F8 Advanced Boot Options list.
The option does appear on my ACER PC.

You can access this option by booting from a System Repair CD/DVD. A system repair CD is a must have.

After some windows update the dedicated graphic card stopped working properly (AMD Radeon HD 7730M).Some time after that it got worse and stopped working, giving an infinite bluescreen-crash boot loop.
Restoring factory settings didn't help. Booting in safe mode, and then disabling the dedicated graphic card drivers/device worked.
Now there was an important windows update that had some gpu drivers updated (shouldn't have enabled automatic windows updates installation), and it broke again. Bluescreens and/or blackscreen are the result. Problem now is that I'm unable to boot the laptop in safemode. I can however boot with live usb/cd.
I'm pretty sure the problem is the same and disabling the second gpu and drivers is going to solve it, so any advice about how enable safe mode from the registry or any other way will be appreciated. So far smashing the f8 / shift+f8 key doesn't seem to work in windows 8.1, and it doesn't seem to load by itself.
Other info: Windows 8 (from factory), Intel4000 as main gpu, HD 7730M as secondary.

Hi, I have a problem with Windows 8.1.
 
I have used 'Advanced Startup Option' and 'System Restore' a few weeks ago and everything worked fine.
 
Yesterday, I tried to log in to Windows and typed password and Windows said the password is incorrect. Hence, I now cannot log in to my computer.
 
I tried to use 'Safe mode', so I have pressed 'Shift' + 'Restart' (from this log in screen) to enter 'Advanced Startup Option' menu. There I can navigate through menu, but when I get to the screen where I want to use 'System Restore' or 'System Refresh' or even start computer in 'Safe mode' or 'Debugging mode', the system reboots itself and I am back to my login screen where password doesn't work.
 
Has anyone any idea why is that and how to correct this? Thank you very much for your help!
 
P.S. I don't have access to the web on this particular computer.

I have w7 ultimate x64, a recent upgrade from Vista x86. However i can't find the "advanced search" options, whereby previously in vista, I right clicked on the drive or folder I want to search then I could input my search parameters.

Windows 7 seems to have extremely poor search capabilities, because I can't specify a lot of things like I did before.

For example I am unable to set the search to files more than 1gb in size, because there is only "gigantic" which is pathetically small at 128mb.

How to fix this?

Hi I am posting this for a friend, his advanced boot menu pops up every time his laptop is started even though it shuts down correctly. Windows 7 OS, It is up to date Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 advanced boot option

Ask your friend to go Start - type msconfig - press Enter and under the General tab that Normal startup is checked and/or under the Boot tab that Safe boot is unchecked.

If they are as they should be, then select Repair your Computer when in the Advanced boot mode and navigate to the Recovery Environment to select Startup Repair.

If that returns that it is unable to auto repair then run the Startup Repair another twice to see if that resolves.

Let us know if either msconfig or the Startup Repair fail to resolve.

Hi Everybody.

Ive looked thru many threads here about Easy Transfer Tool and i didnt see my question anywhere..... I just finally done away with Windows XP and used the easy transfer tool to store my user accounts to be put back on the new Windows 7 system... Now that i have installed most of my programs and set my settings, ive decided that i dont want to move all of the user account stuff to my new windows 7 machine

My Question is, (can i use the Easy transfer Tool "advance option" when i connect it to the new windows 7 and only transfer my photos, music and internet explorer favorites from the user accounts).... I dont want my settings affected in anyway..... Ive created a restore point so i could go back to it just in case something went wrong but wanted some advice before i connected the easy transfer up to the new windows 7...

Thank You All For Your Help

A:Easy Transfer Too Advanced Option

You say "photos, music, and Internet Explorer favorites".

You don't need Easy Transfer to move that stuff around. I'd think it would be an unnecessary complication for that purpose.

Are you locked into Easy Transfer and no longer have direct access to the original copies or backups of those 3 things?

Hi I seen that this should be ticked on other forums but just wanted make sure here as this forum seems to no what your doing more and seems more legit. But does PCI lock need to be ticked or un ticked in boot advanced option. I no that leaving number of processors and maximum memory un ticked uses auto but if I chose to use all 8 processors my self and maximum memory could this improve system just incase auto not using them all or working right?.

Main question though is PCI Clock.
Thanks.

A:PCI lock boot advanced option?.

PCI lock or clock? very confusing post.

If that option is what I am thinking is, then do not mess with it unless you want to risk burning your PCI-e devices/corrupt hard disk

Default clock is 100Mhz, and almost only increased by experienced overclockers sometimes to ensure stability. Most of the time it is manually set to 100Mhz so it doesn't scale with FSB (Front Side Bus) speed.

I am not a overclock person though, (I will ask help regarding this in due time) so if I am wrong friends will correct.

Try some online scans from various antivirus vendors. They are all free. Bitdefender, ESET, Kaspersky and Trend Micro. If they report a problem. Then post in the virus removal sub-forum to get help.

I need help.  Bottom line up front: I want to reflash the BIOS/UEFI on my Lenovo G50-45 Type 80E3.  Attempts to do this from Windows have failed.  Is there are way to do this from a flash drive or DOS?  Symptoms and details follow.             The problem machine is one of ten identical (both hardware and software) laptops occasionally used in a classroom.  The other 9 laptops are working perfectly.            The problem machine (and all the others) were fine 5 months ago when updated to Windows 10 v1607.  When taken out of storage the problem machine started to boot to Windows but hung before the lock screen.  After >30 minutes waiting, I was able to do some recovery options, but all failed to fix the problem.  Restoring the original OEM image or even a complete image from another working machine had no effect.  Of some significance:  if I waited >1 hour sometimes I got a Windows error, "thread stuck in device driver."            I wiped the HD completely with secure erase, and then installed a vanilla ("Clean") copy of Windows 10 v1703, the current 'Creators Update.'  This worked fine until connected to the Internet, upon which it quickly hung and crashed.  By installing drivers off-line one-by-one I traced the problem to the AMD Video devic...

On a friend's computer, when I access the advanced boot menu using F8, the repair your computer option is missing. I found this info on a Microsoft page:

Repair your computer
Shows a list of system recovery tools you can use to repair startup problems, run diagnostics, or restore your system. This option is available only if the tools are installed on your computer's hard disk.

Does anyone know if these tools can be installed on a computer that is missing them? This is an Asus laptop.

Thanks

I was wondering if it is possible to programmatically change the Advanced Sharing -> Homegroup connections option? I would like to run a script to set it to "Use User account and passwords to connect to other computers".
I have looked around at different registry settings and the group policy editor and haven't found it yet.
Appreciate the input. Much thanks.

Is this option worded differently on 7? Because I cannot find it. I need to do this for a program.

Thanks

A:No "Turn off advanced text services” option for windows 7?

It looks like the feature was removed. What program are we dealing with here? I found a MS database article, but it mentions Office XP.

When accessing the Windows 8 Advanced Startup Options (ASO), I am expecting to see a menu option called Troubleshoot – see screenshot (from Microsoft).

..but when I access this screen on my brand new Windows 8 XPS12, the Troubleshoot menu item is not displayed – see screenshot.

This is contrary to standard Windows 8 functionality.
I would be grateful for any advice on getting access to the Troubleshoot menu of Windows 8 ASO. Thanks!
 
Regards,
David.

I have a VN7-572G. 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?
