Configuration – BIOS

To enter into the BIOS you will need to mash the appropriate key for your computer. This will require a keyboard to access. 20170106_112854[1].jpg

The BIOS is the very first thing that loads and works when you open your computer. You will need to spam click a key the INSTANT your computer turns on. For me it is F12 to open the BIOS menu. Your then greeted with the simple menu of boot drives, which you will want to click ‘Enter Setup’.

From here you will be greeted with a full screen menu with a larger interface, and many more options.

After coming to this page, you can explore all the options available, these will tell you lots of information about the computer, as well as give you settings that you can change. As seen above, there is the controls menu on the bottom right, that gives you all the controls you can possibly use in the BIOS menu.

Thanks to the limitations on the BIOS menu in college, we managed to get this far with setting up the BIOS. The BLUE list entries are the only ones available, others, you can use to set up virus detection, and hard drive boot order etc. The Quiet boot mode allows you to boot up slowly, with no noise, compared to the disabled, quick and noisy boot. Remove invalid boot options is simply a list cleaning tool for if you use multiple hard drives. You will then have to save and exit with your changes. This is from the next tab across on the top. It will then restart normally with your applied changers already made.

“To set a PASSWORD you need to go onto the SECURITY tab on the top of the menu. You then need to scroll down to the password options.

You then need to click enter on the correct option, type your password and save, and exit.” – Not Necessary But though I Would Mention.
