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.)

Since we don't know what system the other person had we can't help you. And a bios by the same manufactures doesn't mean their options is the same as your option based on your system. So don't think what happens on another bios is the same as yours. And since we have no specs or P/N from theirs to verify what biso version they have know one can know for sure. And maybe their bios upgrades gives them that options but for you system that isn't available. So before trying to tie two different bios from different system is like comparing Apples to Oranges.

Default users may not have access to certain option of the BIOS and would require a supervisor /administrator password and access to allow . 
 
Be careful not to lose the password since there is no reset to it if you forget it.

Welcome to the Forums.
 
Are you referring to the hidden additional options in the BIOS (like in this image)? AFAIK there are no special combination keys to do this and these options can only be unlocked if you flash a modified version of the BIOS (which, unfortunately, is not officialy supported).
 
For backing up your current BIOS, check this article.

A:How to acess Advanced Options in InsydeH20 BIOS?

Hi, No matter what settings you will apply to the BIOS you will not see more options than you currently see. The settings which are not available are settings which are locked by acer. Thus you cannot change them, unless you make a custom/modded BIOS for the machine.

Hi, I will try to explain myself the best I can (i do not speak english).
Here we go: I bought this (Satellite C655D-S5518) from a friend, thinking on a proyect for this laptop. The problem is despite all my efforts browsing the net i can not find a way to display all options in Advanced Features. The bios is the lastest (1.80), the version of the insyde is 3.5.
The options I need is basically the FSB, multiplier, voltage, etc. I don't care if this laptop fries o burn in hell, i bough it for less than 50 US dollars.
Is there a way to acces that part of the BIOS?, something, key combination for example?. I don't want to make a backup of the BIOS, learn how to modificate the code to display that information and flashing it. If theres no option I will go for that, but i want to explore all the options before go to the atomic-nuke solution.

I hope is a easy solution.

Hello,

I have a computer that is stuck in a loop and won't boot into normal or safe mode. There is a blue screen flashing up, but way too quick for me to be able to see the STOP code.

The problem I have is that the American Megatrends BIOS 2.51, has an option on the boot screen "Press F8 for BBS Popup". Therefore I can't use the F8 key to get into the Windows XP Advanced Options menu. Why the hell has a BIOS manufacturer hijacked an important Windows key?????

I have also tried pressing the F8 key AFTER the BIOS screen, but even by doing that you still get a boot order list by pressing F8, and not the Advanced Options menu.

Does anyone know how to either:
1. Disable the Press F8 for BBS Popup in the BIOS? (I've looked, so has a workmate, but we can't see it)

or

2. Is there an alternative to using the F8 key to access the Advanced Options menu?

Hope someone can help.

However, this is now gone, and i have been unable to enter my bios. The "windows starting" appears and everything else is as usual, it has been working fine, so i dont know for how long my bios have been gone.
Now, what i really want is ree-booting some USB options, since this is done in BIOS i discovered i no longer have acces during startup. I dont know if my faulty USB and the BIOS-gone-bye-bye is related...

I have edited msconfig, tried safe modes etc., disabled "Hibernate" (due to someone having my problem and seeing the message "resuming windows" instead of "starting windows", however i just dont get a message like that)

a black screen, white letters, a quit look at "Pheonix Trusted core... BIOS version .. system ID... 1 processer detected " ie the ususal stuff. But there is no line with "Press DEL to enter setup" it is gone!

I set the High Performance under Power Options to turn off display and put the computer to sleep after 3 minutes as a test.

I have connected the UPS via USB and the Device and Printers, USB Input Device show the drivers are fine and the UPS is working.

Am I misunderstanding what Win 7 will do on its own without mfg monitoring software?

The attached are screen shots how I set the advanced settings

A:How to set Advanced options in Power Options (64 bit Ultimate)

Welcome to 7Forums!

With those options, you can set how much time windows will take an action after you are not taking any action
So if you set 3 minutes for turning off the screen or going to sleep and leave it alone it will scedule these action after 3 minutes.
I don't really understand the part where you explain that the timer stopps. I do not recommend setting the same values for both options under 'on battery' or 'plugged in' state.
I would just increase the 'on battery' / sleep time to 5 or 10 minutes and see if it works.

Hi

I have a server 2008 Domain Controller and 35 Windows7 desktops. If a user was to lock a desktop, is the only way to unlock to "switch user" and start task manager to disconnect a user?

Used to be with a XP locked desktop in a domain, you could simply CTRL-ALT-DEL and log over a user with a "As you sure you want to logout htis user" message.

Any other setting, GPO, local settings to change that?

That is because xp in domain environment can only have 1 user logged on at a time. So anyone logging in will prompt to kick the user out.

In vista and 7 yes if a user is logged on and someone switches user, the only way to log them off is to have the user do it, restart the pc, or task manager disconnect.

When I boot up, I have no more F8 startup options, such as booting to safe mode. Instead what comes up is a simplified boot order menu that allows me to choose what boots up in what order.

I need to log on as an administrator to fix my other (self-inflicted) problem...

In a moment of sheer idiocy I went into the proprties for the RPC Service. I then went into the Log On tab and changed the log-On to the "Log On As", "This Account" option, and browsed to find my profile name. All this because I was trying to be able to change settings elsewhere that needed administrator privileges...I can't log in as the Admin because I can't get to the startup options menu by pressing F8.

Now Windows comes up, but all services dependent of the RPC won't work because the RPS service itself can't work....services like system restore.
I've been hunting through the System32 file hoping I would find something to help.
I tried using the XP CD to restore or repair, but neither worked; the repair option never even came up.
I replaced my NTLDR from the CD because the computer wouldn't boot at one point, and said it couldn't find it.
I've been able to get in and do a file transfer wizard and back up some other files to my other HD, but I really don't want to reinstall XP if I don't have to.

Any suggestions or knowledge on whether I can find that line of code telling the RPC service what its Log On is, so I can repair it manually? Somewhere, it just needs to be told N... Read more

A:Advanced Startup Options Gone, RPC off!

OK, people are reading this but not replying...I wish I knew what that means... anyway,
UPDATE:

I figured out which files on the OEM XP cd were the ones for the RPC service, and expanded them directly into the system32 file, overwriting the old ones (rpcns4.dl_ and rpcrt4.dl_ on the XP install CD). I'm quite proud I figured out how to do this.

The good news: it's no worse than before, but the bad news: it's no different than before either.
I can't get into the properties for the RPC service via the Services console. All talk I can find on different sites for restoring default settings involve using the Service Console and have to do with the startup type, not logon.

I run Avast AV, COMODO internet security suite/firewall, Spyware Blaster, Ad-Aware, Spybot, Autoruns, HijackThis/Kaspersky, and Sisinternals suite.
Full scans came up clean, although I got something weird back in August that I still wonder if I worked out all the kinks...that's when my F8 options disappeared.

Somebody tell me something! Am I on the right track? How can I reinstall/reset all the settings for the services? I need to change that logon, it;s the source of all my current problems...except the missing advanced startup F8 menu for after the POST...

Good day

I am having trouble setting up my Laptop to ask me what to do when I hit the power button. I go to advance power options properties and set it up there. But only to find that minutes later the settings has changed back to default. This applies also to the power option schemes where you set the time to go into standby and so forth. I set the settings all to never, but after a few minutes i can go and look and it will be back to defualt....

Please can someone help?

Kind regards

Advanced Boot Options has been coming up on its own everytime I have started my computer up. It first started doing this when I was running Vista 32bit then 64bit and has followed me onto Windows 7 64bit. How do I go about disabling it? Thanks in advance.

A:Advanced Boot Options

Hello Mike, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check to see if your F8 key may be stuck pressed down or broken. You might also test rebooting your computer with another keyboard to see if it may be your current one or not as well.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

I'm trying to search for a specific type of file that contains a particular word. Ive looked at the "Tips for finding files" article in Microsoft and it mentions an advanced search button but I can not find it anywhere. It says its in the search folder but I have no idea where that is located. Does anyone know how to find it? If the advanced search button is not available, can anyone tell me how to search in only pdfs and docs for a file that has a particular word in its content?

Hi
I've been using a BT Home Hub for some time. I want to enable UPNP on my router so I can host a server for a game called Blockland. I type bthomehub.home in my address bar and hit enter. Then I click Advanced Options. Then there is a button saying "Continue to Advanced Options..." so I click that button, and then, a window pops up as pictured below:

And I don't know my username or password. Some say that both username and password are "admin" but it isn't. So how on earth do I fix this problem?

A:I cannot enter Advanced Options on BT

Hi, just to say your link is broken.

Do you have an old BT Homehub (white) or a new one (black)?

If you can't remember your password on the BT HH 2.0 then you have to reset your router to factory settings or if you never changed the password, take a look at BT Home Hub Help - How To Log On.

I hope this is of use.

So does altering anything in the BOOT Advanced Options allow for quicker boot times? In terms of Porcessors used and RAM allocated? Just wondering.

A:BOOT Advanced Options

Hello QuackPot,

These settings are mostly just for testing purposes only.

By default, Windows 7 is set to use all available RAM and CPU cores/processors in the Boot - Advanced Options window for maximum performance. If you change and reduce the amount, then this will decrease performance.
