Asus Only Boots Into EUFI BIOS Screen After Upgrade?

Feb 10, 2016

I have an Asus AiO ET2221A upgraded from Win8.1 to 10 3 months ago, and today only boots into the EUFI BIOS screen. There are no errors reported on Boot, just the BIOS screen

I was able to run Memtest from a DVD - fine, but couldn't boot into Hirens on USB or DVD. The BIOS does list the hdd partitions, plus I can search the hdd partitions/folders from within BIOS(!!).

I did remove and run Chkldsk on anther PC which showed/replaced several errors (20 bad sectors). I also loaded the latest BIOS download onto the hdd which in theory I can access from within BIOS. However after replacing the hdd after the chkdsk repair, it still wouldn't boot into Windows.

I am surprised as I would expect the BIOS to report it can't find the Windows (if it is the disk), rather than stick in BIOS without any diagnostics.

So I am still in a quandary as to whether this is a BIOS issue and/or a HDD issue, plus by upgrading from 8.1 to 10 the latter usually corrupts the Windows (8.1) recovery partition.

I am no expert on EUFI BIOS, but I understand that the Windows License is stored within the BIOS. If I try and re-install the BIOS is the license retained? And from that could I also re-install WIndows 10 from a download?

Edit: since posting I have got the system to boot into Hirens, but as soon as XP starts to load it turns off the USB mouse/keyboard so becomes useless. All I did was to switch off secure boot, and specify the boot order, either optical or USB. Progress but not sure what it tells me, or how I can get the usb mouse to work in Hirens in a eufi system (not had this issue before with non-eufi systems).

BIOS Startup Screen Gone Since Upgrade

Dec 7, 2015

When running windows 7, for the first few seconds upon booting my laptop, it would display a startup message,

"Press ESC for boot selection, F2 for setup, etc......."

Now, nothing. I cannot choose to enter setup, BIOS, get to ESC for a boot selection screen in case I might want to boot from a flash drive or a floppy just once. How to get it back either.

ASUS H81M-A - Can't Access BIOS Since Upgrading

Oct 6, 2015

I recently updated my pc to windows 10 and ever since I can't access BIOS because I have no chance to (?) I try pressing F2 and DEL multiple time when starting up but it goes straight to the Windows start up. On Win7 it showed a screen which had some information on it and said "Press F2 to enter BIOS" or something like that and only then it would go to the Windows start up.Maybe I need to re-install BIOS?

Upgrade On GT60 - Laptop Powers On / No BIOS Or MSI Splash Only Black Screen

Sep 22, 2015

Yesterday I got a notification that my windows 10 upgrade was ready on my MSI GT60-0NE laptop and decided to give it a try because I really disliked windows 8.1. Windows update went through downloading the files and preparing the computer for installation. It then did the usual, configuring updates on the blue screen, got to 100% and just shut down completely. I left it there for about 5 minutes and decided to try to power it back on. When turning the computer back on, it stayed on for about a minute and then cut itself back off.

After waiting a minute it turned back on, then back off again. It kept repeating this for about 5 minutes. During this phase I saw absolutely nothing on the screen, no MSI loading splash screen, no cursor, absolutely nothing at all. I couldn't enter the BIOS, couldn't run recovery or even get into safe mode. Absolutely nothing worked. The battery light was also flashing blue which I had never seen before. During this time the hard drive light was flashing and flickering the usual red light.

I did a hard reset on the computer and then turned it back on. When i powered it back on the screen was still completely blank, no MSI splash screen, no cursors, couldn't enter the BIOS or anything. During this time the hard drive light was a steady red. The blue battery light was no longer there and it was back to its usual constant red light. After about 10 minutes the computer turned itself off. Being frustrated I left it overnight and tried again this morning.

When I power the computer on now, there is no hard drive light. It doesn't even give a single flash of red. The computer will stay on but just stays there at the black screen. I've tried to look for solutions but I can't get anything to work. The only thing I can hear running is the fan.

I've tried to remove the hard drive and boot to see if I could get into bios, still a black screen.
I've tried removing the video card and booting to see if I could get anything through integrated graphics, still a black screen.
I've tried to plug the computer into another monitor, still a black screen but it does recognize the signal.

Specs for the GT60-0NE 403-US:
Intel Core i7 3630QM (2.40 GHz)
Nvidia GTX 680M (4GB)
Windows 8.1 64-bit (Windows 10 now?)

Performance :: OS Commonly Boots To A Black Screen With No Cursor?

Oct 21, 2015

I upgraded my preview build of Windows 10 (10130) to the pro final version because the preview wasn't able to find additional builds and kept crapping out on standard updates. All went smoothly, but the first thing I noticed is that the next time I booted cold, Windows 10 would get past the "starting windows" screen and play the startup sound.

However, the logon interface never appeared, or the cursor. All that was displayed was a solid black screen. I hard reset by holding down the power button and tried it again, which gave me the same thing. Again, hard reset. This still commonly happens, along with my CMOS date/time settings apparently being wiped after such reset. Sometimes the cursor appears, but mostly it doesn't.

Usually after trying enough times it'll pull through or by starting it after selecting a recovery option from F8. "Enable low resolution video" I know worked before, but it didn't give me low res display. (Not that I'm complaining) It could likely be because I installed over the preview, and in-place installations typically have issues. I'm also running a program to provide titlebars with aero styled glass transparency, and my graphics driver is up to date.

No Video Signal After Upgrade (ASUS GTX 650 Ti Boost)

Jul 30, 2015

I was installing everything with relative ease so I left my computer unattended. When I came back, the computer had restarted and sounded fine except there was no video output. (I aIso couldn't hear the hard drive spinning), thinking this was normal, let it sit for about 3 hours before I got suspicious. So I tried all of the available video ports (except displayport) and none of them had a signal. I let it sit for about 2 more hours, still, nothing. So I tried turning it of and back on again. Still, nothing.

Laptop Boots Up To Black Screen With Cursor - Shows Signs Of Activity

Oct 8, 2015

I am trying to figure out what is going on with my mom's laptop. Two days ago she told me she was using her laptop and everything was fine, but then she left to do some things in the kitchen and came back a bit later to the screen off. Upon waking it up by moving the mouse, all she got was a black screen with a white cursor. I have looked at it and upon manually restarting, it shows the Windows 10 logo, and then it goes to the black screen with the cursor. There is no login screen either but I do also hear the welcome music. One thing I noticed though is the cursor does have the blue loading circle next to it like it is actually still doing something, and it flashes and spins now and then, as well as the computer sounding like its working, but I have left this on for almost 40 minutes now and it is still just a black screen. It sometimes goes to the off screen and have to move the mouse to wake it up again. Some people online suggest task manager and opening up other windows but nothing works, I can just move a cursor.

Installation :: Asus Zenbook UX31E Not Working After Upgrade

Sep 24, 2015

Some weeks ago I upgraded my son's Zenbook. Initially it seemed to work fine. So I did a clean install. I can vaguely remember an odd miss start-up after the clean install.It seemed to work allright after that. Anyway my son skyped a couple of weeks ago to say it isn't working. Generally speaking, can I fresh install the original W7, it was home premium. I haven't a disk and wonder if there are any ISO's available at MS for download?

BSOD :: Upgrade Locks Out ASUS Motherboards And USB Sockets

Dec 10, 2015

Having Windows 10! automatically upgraded the computer Operating System (OS) you find your ASUS Motherboard has become inaccessible due to no mouse or keyboard controls. You may also find your BIOS/UEFI is inaccessible or refuses to start.

First, if you have ASUS AI Suite versions 2 or 3 when Windows 10 installed and ASUS had USB+ power controlled app, then Windows 10 on starting disables all USB 2 and 3 ports. Only solution is crash the computer 2 or 3 times whilst Windows 10 is loading the basic system; I did this by holding down the power on button for more than 6 seconds. after the computer tries to reboot the third (3) time it should start with an accessible screen asking for the user to input a decision how to reboot.
Two Options; 1. start in safe mode and hack ASUS AI Suite by manually uninstalling the program. 2. Revert to Windows 7 and uninstall AI Suite correctly.

Second, if you cannot access BIOS/UEFI, it is because Windows 10 loaded something into the motherboard active memory; to recover switch off or remove mains power and wait until BIOS goes to battery backup; about 5 minutes. If you have additional graphics cards like I have, switch off power until the LED's on the cards go out. Then switch mains power back on and you should be able to access the BIOS/UEFI with the delete key before Windows 10 logo starts.

Asus Vivobook Restarts When Waking From Sleep Mode After Upgrade

Aug 6, 2015

I have an Asus Vivobook. In windows 8 I used sleep mode all the time. after the upgrade to windows 10 whenever the computer enters sleep mode either by closing the lid, automated or manual, when I wake it it restarts. I entered the BIOS and the AHPC mode was enabled, and was the only option. I looked through the computer power options, but I can't find anything.

Asus P7H55 And Sony Bravia - HDMI Not Compatible Since Upgrade

Sep 11, 2015

I just upgraded my htpc computer from win7 to win10 this morning. I have an Asus P7H55 motherboard with onboard Intel HD graphics H55 series. things were not perfect to start with.

Situation before the upgrade:
- if I was watching a moving in full screen on Netflix and went away forgetting to come back to the main web page, 9/10 when I would come back to the PC, the TV would somehow have forgotten it was connected and flash as it had lost its signal. I had to hard-reboot the computer, then the problem was fixed until next time. I never was able to figure out why it did that - overheating? incompatibility when going to idle / screensaver if in full screen? was it specific to the TV? I just went with it.

Situation after the upgrade:
Now, the TV just won't display the computer, period. I know something changed during the install of win10 - as the TV screen suddenly went dark then an error message "incompatible" started showing at the bottom of the screen.

What I tried so far:
- I went on Asus' website to try to download windows 10 drivers. Somehow they seem to have forgotten putting them on their website. The 8.1 ones dont work either.
- I tried downloading stuff from Intel (they provide the chipset and graph card) but so far haven't had much success

What I'd like to avoid:
- in some research, I found that some people had to connect using VGA instead of HDMI to fix this problem with their Sony Bravia TV. I'm not thrilled with this idea as the resolution and quality would degrade compared to HDMI.
- if at all possible I'd also like to avoid having to purchase a brand new graph card for this computer.

My setup:
motherboard: asus p7h55
tv: sony bravia

Performance :: ASUS G74SX Doesn't Boot Past The ASUS Logo?

The other day, I tried to do a factory reset on my laptop, but it failed, and I could only click cancel. Now, when I booted up my computer, it goes to the ASUS logo, then a black screen, still backlit, with an underscore flashing in the upper left corner of the screen. I can access the BIOS, and have been trying to do boot overrides. I don't have the ASUS Recovery partition installed on the laptop, and I don't have any possible ways to install an ISO. T

Should Flash BIOS To Upgrade?

Aug 4, 2015

I'm currently trying to upgrade my Windows 7 computer to Windows 10. My attempt at upgrading to Windows 10 fail time after time. That's when i remembered I didn't install the optional update KB3064209 .Unfortunately, the infamous "death loop" happens when I do install; this only happens for Pentium G3258 users which I happen to be one. So to fix this I found out Asrock, my motherboard is the Asrock B85 Anniversary, released a bios update that says it's for the "update microcode 19". This happens to be what KB3064209 is... a microcode update.

Link to new bios (it is the version 1.40): [URL] .....

The question is should I flash my bios for this situation? After all the warnings I've read about never flashing bios unless something is a catastrophe?

Can't Upgrade Because BIOS Isn't Supported

Jul 31, 2015

I currently own a Dell Inspiron N5110 laptop with Windows 7 installed, but just received the last part to build my own desktop today! I'm looking to get Windows 10 on my new PC.I recently received the "Get Windows 10" button in the toolbar on my laptop, but when I click on it, it says I can't upgrade to Windows 10 because "the BIOS isn't supported".

However, I don't really want Windows 10 on my laptop; I'd much rather have it on my new desktop. So, my first question: is there a way that I can download a bootable Windows 10 file to my current laptop, transfer to a flash drive, and use that to install Windows 10 on my new PC right out of the box, all for free?

So my next question is: will buying and downloading the version of Windows 8.1 Pro in the above link work for my situation? That is, is it a full install in the sense that I will be able to make it a bootable file on my flash drive to install on my new PC? I believe I would have to download a Windows 8 ISO file to start.

My last question: is there an easier alternative to getting Windows 10 on my new PC, and if so, what is it? I think I can download Windows 10 here: URL... I'm not quite sure how that process would work either.

Installation :: Upgrade Stuck And Can't Enter BIOS

Mar 11, 2016

I've trying to update an Advent netbook to windows 10 from 7. It's been a hassle all the way with hangs on 'checking for updates'. However, I got through that but now it's stuck on 'Get going fast' screen.

I had selected 'use express settings' and now it's stuck on that screen. The mouse still works but nothing happens. I left it on all night. It's still on the 'get going fast' screen.

If I reboot (even remove battery) I get the initial advent boot screen but no bios info. Del, f12, f11, f2 etc do nothing. The blue 'win 10' logo appears briefly then back to the 'get going fast' screen.

I also tried the usb flash drive that had the old os on it but it won't boot from it despite that being the initial boot setting in the bios. Has win 10 bricked my netbook?

Installation :: BIOS Power On Function Disabled Since It Upgrade?

Aug 1, 2015

I have the BIOS setting to auto power on every day at a designated time. It has worked with a dual boot Win 7/8.1 system. However, since upgrading the Win 8.1 to Win 10 (dual boot Win 7/10) it no longer powers on at the designated time. Its still set up correctly in the BIOS.

This is apparently not the "fast boot" option that was in Win 8.1 as I can access the BIOS on power on (couldn't with the Win 8 fast boot).

Laptop Screen Won't Turn Back On Without Closing Lid (Asus Ux501vw)

Mar 23, 2016

I got a Asus ux501vw laptop a couple of months ago and have been having an issue with the screen not be able to turn back on after it turns off.

I'm running Windows 10 x64. The issues happens in any resolution (it's a 4k screen but usually I run 1080p for better software compatability).

This happens when it goes into power saving mode or I use fn7. I can't get the screen back on unless I close the laptop lid and sign back in again. When it happens I can sometimes change the brightness and I can hear notification noises which suggest the laptop is running fine without the screen being on.

Steps I have tried with no result:
- rolling back gpu driver to version thathat came with laptop
- updating bios and chipset (recommended by asus)
- resetting the power management settings

Some weird findings:
- in safety mode there is no issue (though when the screen shuts off I can see the backlight is on full which is different to normal boot)
- If there is a second monitor plugged in the issue goes away (in either extend or duplicate)
- if there is no second monitor plugged in and I hit f7 the screen won't turn back on. As soon as I plug in the second monitor the screen comes back on.

What could be causing this? Is there some monitoring program I should use to find out what is happening when the screen is supposed to be back on but it's not?

After Upgrade Can't Access BIOS To Change Boot Order For W7 Reinstall

Jan 6, 2016

Have a Lenovo H420 desktop that was upgraded about 2 months ago. We backed up everything and want to reinstall Windows 7.

But I can find no way to get into the Setup screen. I've gone to Settings, Update & Security, Advanced Startup and Restart Now. But I have no option to Use a Device. If I choose Troubleshoot then Advanced Options, the subsequent screen has no option for UEFI Firmware Settings.

I've disabled Fast Boot through Power Options in the Control Panel, then tried F2 and the Delete key when starting. Nothing...

The fact that I can't do something that was so easy in Windows 7 is enough reason in itself to remove 10. Throw in the fact that the scanner part of my printer no longer works is just icing on the cake. I have the Windows 7 disk. I just can't figure out how to use it.

Drivers/Hardware :: Hard Drive Not Appearing In BIOS After PC Upgrade

Nov 18, 2015

I just did a complete upgrade of my PC replacing motherboard, video card, processor and power supply but keeping original hard drives. I did a fresh install of Windows 7 and then upgraded to Windows 10 soon after completely smoothly with no issues. My boot drive and external survived, but for some reason, even though it was handled with great care, my other SATA hard drive doesn't appear anywhere anymore. I can hear it spin when I boot the PC but it doesn't appear in BIOS or in Disk Management. I changed the cable and the port it was plugged into but no dice.

If it is indeed dead...what are my options in recovering the files? It is essential I get these files back!

It kind of worked on and off when plugged into my brother's PC which uses a different make of motherboard...

Stuck On Logo After BIOS Screen

Jan 9, 2016

When i boot my pc up, it can successfully go into bios, but once it reaches the windows logo where there is usually a loading indicator underneath it, it freezes. the loading indicator is not there, it seems that my usb ports quit working (my keyboard and mouse stop lighting up).

I've been having this problem for quite a while now ever since i upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10 however i was able to successfully do a usb boot and wipe my hard drive and install windows over again, and I've been completely fine for about a month now, but the same thing is happening again.

I am guessing it is a corrupt windows file but i find it odd that its recurring even after i did a total wipe. Also I ordered a new ssd (500gb samsung 850 evo) to replace my current hdd, maybe that will fix this problem? I am also planning on upgrading my cpu, mobo, ram, and gpu soon. i will leave my current pc specs below.

cpu- AMD Phenom II x4 955
mobo- Biostar TA790 GX 128m
gpu - Zotac GTX 560 1gb 256 bit DDR5
ram - 2x2gb DDR2

I have not found any problems similar to this online. to make things clearer, i cannot get my pc to do a complete boot at all. it always freezes on the same screen, the only way i can get out of it is to do a force shutdown. I am starting to think that perhaps the problem may be my video card? also i do not have any spare parts or other computers to switch parts and test unfortunately.

After doing multiple things to find a fix (swapping ram slots, unplugging hdd and gpu and plugging back in, etc.) while on the frozen windows logo screen i unplugged my mouse and keyboard, plugged them back in, hit the restart button on my pc, and.. it started up? now i have noticed lag-like performances with my mouse (razer deathadder chroma) its as if it loses connection for a split second and the lights on it will simultaneously flash. the mouse is only a month or two old and i do not remember if i had problems with my old mouse.

I have just plugged it into a usb port that is on the side of my pc instead of plugging it into one of the back ones. I will update with if needed for the "lag" however i am still concerned with why exactly it froze like that during boot up. im not going to shut down my computer until i know what the problem was and how to fix it. ill just keep it in a low power setting when i am not using it.
