Startup problem!

[ Edited ]

I press the power button the laptop and have to wait about 3 ~ 6 min for the post bios appears. After waiting all this time. I use the laptop normally without apparent problems.

 

PS: Bios 3.23

Type: 2768-D92

Re: Startup problem!

It is hard to diagnose from far away, but go into the BIOS and see if the boot order is correct? (the LAN adapter should probably be below the disk and DVD) Are the built-in devices working? (sound, USB, fingerprint, bluetooth)

Re: Startup problem!

boot order is correct, being only DVD and HDD.  Downgrade bios? You can you tell me a pretty hardware diagnostic app.

Re: Startup problem!

I think, you just had updated your BIOS.

 

Go into BIOS, keep the setting under "Config" - "SATA"  in mind, press F9 - load defaults, F10 - yes and turn off computer.

Turn computer on, and re-set under Config - SATA the last setting.

 

If the POST still is too long, remove the BIOS battery for a few minutes (take care to know the BIOS passwords if there are set any).

Re: Startup problem!

Hello --

 

 

I have the same problem as well: it takes 10 min. 21 sec. after I push the startup button to ge to the POST screen, and then everything is fine.

 

Mornsgrans: how do I access the BIOS battery?

 

Thanks,

Re: Startup problem!

Hang at the startup screen usually means damaged USB ports
