Resetting BIOS settings on an ASUS laptop: why do this?

First you need to understand that the BIOS (BIOS) is the most important part of any computer. It is a system of customizable software tools that are responsible for the order of inclusion of components, ensuring the interaction between devices and their correct operation.

It happens that an ordinary user begins to make changes to existing settings, trying to increase the performance of his gadget (memory timing, bus frequency parameters changed, an incorrect parameter is specified), or sets a password for the input that appears when the ASUS laptop is rebooted. In this case, there is nothing else to do but to reset the BIOS.

How to reset BIOS on an ASUS laptop

There are several ways to reset BIOS settings on an ASUS laptop. Let’s look at some of them.

  1. Disconnect the gadget from the mains. After folding and turning the device over, look for the inscription “CMOS” on its back side. Next to it is a small hole. Insert a thin sharp object (a toothpick, a needle) into it and slightly press, hold for about 10 seconds.
  2. Another way is to remove the battery that powers the CMOS memory when the device is turned off. In some models, there is no technological hole that was used in the first case. Therefore, use a Phillips screwdriver to unscrew all existing screws. Then carefully lift the cover. For convenience, you can disconnect several loops. Next, find the battery on the motherboard (it looks like a flat washer), and remove it with a flat screwdriver. In most cases, a few hours of downtime with the battery removed are enough, but it is better to leave the laptop in this condition for a day. Then insert the battery back, carefully assemble the gadget and turn it on.
  3. Having disassembled the laptop, you can do without pulling out the battery. You will need to rearrange the special jumper (jumper) located next to the battery on the motherboard. Usually looks like a small blue cap. In the case of two contacts, just short them, and if they are 3-4, then rearrange them from the existing position to another for a few seconds (this is best clarified in the user manual for the motherboard). Some ASUS laptop models have special reset buttons that say “CMOS”.
  4. If the warranty period has not yet expired, then you can reset the BIOS on an ASUS laptop programmatically. After turning on the device, press the F2 or Esc key, there select “StartBios”. In the Main menu, select UseDefaultSettings or SetBIOSDefault, press Enter, then Y. Then press F10, then Y again. The laptop will reboot and will be with the standard (factory) BIOS settings.

You need to understand that resetting the BIOS on an ASUS laptop needs to be done only in the most extreme cases. If the OS and devices work stably, then you should not try to pull out the battery. It should be noted that such actions may deprive you of the warranty of the service center (provided that the warranty period has not expired).

How to reset BIOS on an ASUS laptop

Many problems associated with the operation of the laptop can be solved by simply resetting the BIOS, that is, returning it to the factory settings, which are guaranteed to work. Often users change critical settings, overclock the processor, or, even worse, set a password, and then forget it. And only a reset will solve the problem. This procedure is simple, and accessible to each user. Actually, there are always two options that will allow you to return the BIOS to the factory settings. hardware and software.

Hardware procedure

The very first and simplest is a mechanical reset of BIOS settings. Here’s how to do it: turn off the laptop, turn it over, and on the bottom side find the inscription # 8220; CMOS # 8221; (there should still be a small hole near it). Insert a sharp object, such as a paper clip, into this hole and hold for about 10 seconds.

Please note that in older models there are no such holes. But there BIOS can be reset. For example, you can remove the battery that powers the CMOS memory, though for this you will have to disassemble the laptop (usually just removing the bottom cover is enough). To reset the BIOS in this way, you need to be very careful, and disassemble everything very carefully. Finding a battery in general is easy, it is flat and always easily accessible. The battery must be removed from the socket and wait a while. On very old models, the battery may be soldered, but this is now very rare.

often, the issue with the BIOS on the laptop is not solved by removing the battery itself, but by removing or shorting the special jumper (jumper), which is responsible for the same CMOS. Sometimes you can reset BIOS by pressing a special button on the motherboard. this is an analogue of a jumper.

Note that the battery removal procedure is universal. So you can reset the BIOS not only on an ASUS laptop, but generally anywhere. A battery of CMOS memory can be reset to zero on any device, from expensive servers to ordinary PCs.

BIOS Reset Software Procedure

If you know how to enter BIOS, and you can do it, then hardware methods are not needed at all, you can make everything simpler. And for setting up ASUS laptops. there are several options that depend on the specific implementation. In general, everything is done simply. you need to turn on your laptop and at the boot stage go to the BIOS settings menu.

  1. It is necessary to pay attention to the messages at the bottom of the screen, it says the key combination you need. Typically, the BIOS is entered by pressing the keys # 8220; Del # 8221 ;, # 8220; Esc # 8221; or # 8220; F2 # 8243; at boot time, but options are possible. You will easily understand the principle of resetting BIOS on a laptop when you get to the settings menu. Please note that in new versions of ASUS laptops there may not be a text screen but a graphic one. But in general, the scheme of how to reset everything is general.
  2. Next, select the desired menu item. usually it is called # 8220; Set BIOS Default # 8221; or # 8220; Use Default Settings # 8221 ;. Select and press # 8220; Enter # 8221 ;, and then confirm your decision. press # 8220; Yes # 8221 ;. In principle, both how to enter BIOS and how to reset it. all this is also in the documentation for the laptop / motherboard.
  3. Often, resetting the BIOS on a laptop must also be confirmed by saving. that is, select the menu item. # 8220; Save Exit # 8221 ;, save everything, and then perform a reboot.

Car DVRs with a navigator have recently begun to appear on our market, but have already managed to gain the necessary reputation, because they can perform not only these functions, but also.

All owners of tablets sooner or later visit the thought of how to connect the tablet to a computer. This may be needed for various purposes: copy any files; upload music or fil.

Many people know the problem of damage to chargers by pets. In addition, the charger can simply fail, some microcircuit may stop working in it, and you are not charged.

How to set the boot from a flash drive on the Asus laptop? Some tips for installing Windows 7 from a USB 3.0 flash drive

Hello! Yesterday the new ASUS X501A laptop came into my hands. It was necessary to install Windows, and everything needed, turnkey shorter :). I twisted it and found that it does not have a CD / DVD drive. And this means that you need to create a bootable USB flash drive and install Windows 7 from it. Also, drivers for it on the disk are included, you also need to rewrite them to a USB flash drive. In general, it is strange that the laptop is without a drive, and the driver is on the disk. You need to put it on the flash drive of the driver in the kit, well, or an external drive :).

Anyway. I created a bootable USB flash drive. First created using a special program Windows 7 USB / DVD Download Tool (I wrote about this here). but I’ll say a bit before that for some reason the installation of Windows 7 did not go from this flash drive. The white cursor simply blinked and installation did not continue. I recorded a bootable USB flash drive using UltraISO and it worked. Why so, did not understand :).

Everything, the flash drive is ready. Now you need to install the boot from this flash drive in BIOS. Now I’ll tell you how to do it.

We expose the boot from a flash drive on an Asus laptop

We go into the BIOS. For me, and most likely for you, this is the key F2 (if not, then DEL still try). Press it immediately after starting the laptop.

The flash drive should already be connected to the laptop!

Next, go to the tab Boot and select the item Hard Drive BBS Priorities.

As you can see (in the screenshot below). under me Boot Option # 1 there is a hard drive. And under Boot Option # 2 flash drive. You need to install a flash drive under # 1.

To do this, click on Boot Option # 1 and select a flash drive. And the hard drive will automatically come in second place.

You can return to the previous menu by clicking on Esc and you’ll see that a USB device is installed under Boot Option # 1.

Do not forget to click F10 and Yes to save the settings.

Everything, after rebooting the laptop, boot from the USB flash drive should go (if it is created correctly).

There is one caveat. Maybe I made a mistake when setting the parameters in the BIOS, there probably just needed to create another rule for the boot (Add New Boot Option). But that’s okay.

If you did everything like me, then most likely, during the installation of Windows, after rebooting, loading from a USB flash drive will begin. And you need to drive C to continue the installation. I’m just at the time of reboot pulled out a flash drive. And when the download started from drive C, I inserted it back (although it seems like it is no longer needed for installation, the files are already copied, but I could be wrong).

Possible problems when installing Windows 7 from a USB 3.0 flash drive

You may have noticed that my USB drive has a new USB 3.0 interface. And Windows 7 does not support USB 3.0, the necessary special drivers.

If the drive itself is with USB 3.0. it’s okay. Just plug it in on your laptop USB 2.0 and everything will work.

This is what the USB 2.0 connector looks like on a laptop:

And it looks like a connector with USB 3.0:

The third blue and two letters SS near the icon.

Well, if you have all of USB 3.0, you will have to integrate the drivers in Windows 7. This is a topic for another article. Maybe I’ll write how to do it. In the meantime, you can find this information on the Internet.

You can still find and download the assembly with Windows 7, which already has integrated drivers for USB 3.0. There are such.

On this site there is probably all the information that may be useful for installing the operating system and for solving problems that may arise during the installation process. You can use the site search. And if you can’t find something, then ask in the comments, I will tell :). Good luck

I bought a laptop for mom on DR, ASUS x552e, it goes without Windows, and the wood on the disk for 8k is sharpened. I need 8, but they didn’t want to install any images, either through a flash drive or through a disk, after clicking the install button, a window appears in which you need to enter the key. I tried, there were keys under these images, I entered them. He writes either the key could not be verified or the wrong key. I’ve been sulking for about 5 hours, today my mother has DR, I need to somehow bring the laptop into working condition.
Do you have an image with a key? And if it’s easy, advise how to do it right.
I put 8-ku on my pc more than a year ago, litsuha, I didn’t even take a steam bath, there was activation by phone, but here the complete nonsense.
radik-kuram@yandex.ru here is the soap by the way

We don’t have any Windows 8 disk images at all. Watch the Internet.
Try the seven, maybe the drivers will work.

If you carefully read this post, it’s strange that you didn’t notice
in a post there are a lot of messages that users demolish 8-ku and
put 7-ku. If you need exactly 8, look for torrents, which
very much now.

In general, the problem is this:
I downloaded Windows, recorded the image on a USB flash drive (via UltraISO (before that I formatted the USB flash drive)), I inserted the USB flash drive into the 2.0 connector (I also tried 3.0), inserted the USB flash drive, the laptop starts up, I go into the BIOS, I launch from the USB flash drive # 8230;
There is a temporary copying of temporary files, then at the time when the installation should begin, an error pops up (blue screen with error 0x0000A5)
What is the problem?

I have not encountered such an error. Look for the code # 171; 0x0000A5 # 8243; for sure there is something on the network.

Dude, thank you so much, you saved us, this bios is something with something! Your article is unrealistically useful))

The problem is of the following kind. Laptop ASUS x200ma. It was purchased without an OS. When installing the OS offered a choice of WIN 7? WIN 8. Downloading WIN 7. Not loading. NOUTE rebooted. After rebooting, the BIOS does not boot. Only the manufacturer’s logo is displayed on the screen. How to reanimate?

I did not understand the problem at all. What exactly is failing now?

In ASUS laptops, to install Windows 7 instead of the preinstalled Windows 8, you must first go into the BIOS, in section # 171; Security # 187; disable # 171; Secure boot # 187 ;, then in section # 171; Boot # 187; enable # 171; Launch CSM # 187; # 8212; transfer from # 171; Disabled # 187; at # 171; Enabled # 187; (Launch CSM in this case stands for Launch Compatibility Support Module (activation of the compatibility mode)). After that, save the settings and exit BIOS. Then you need to go back into the BIOS and in the section # 171; Boot # 187; change download priority # 8212; select as # 171; First boot device # 187; (first boot device) optical drive
