As implied in #7 if a BIOS update goes wrong then you'll brick the motherboard. It would probably void the warranty too.

Nothing lost by trying this:
Turn off, remove from domestic power and remove battery. Hold the power off/on button down for about 20 seconds. Put it back together - there's a small chance that it might help.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Have to admit I've never heard of Aptio… But Idid a quick trawl/search via google - using:

Aptio Setup

as the string/search term..

to see what might be regarding your problem as posted… There are more than a few who have had this problem… Suggest you repeat my search using the same search term/string and view the assorted responses…

This is just one of them; and refers to bios issues… (bios updates…) - which is presumably/possibly what you were doing to get the problem you have now?

http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...

As I say… do the search and have a good read and see what may be out there to help?

Meanwhile… What make/model laptop do you have; and what were you doing with it when the problem arrived?

I did discover/learn though via the above trawls… that that Aptio is a recent (next generation) bios firmware from AMI… One lives 'n learns…

Try this.

1. Press and hold F2 while powering on to access BIOS
2. On the Boot tab disable Fast Boot, press F10 to save settings and reboot.
3. Press and hold F" to return to Bios
4. On the boot tab enable "Enable CSM" (only accessible after disabling Fast Boot)
5. On the Security tab set "Secure Boot Control" to Disabled.
6. Press F10 to save settings.

Not everything in bios setup is configurable. So for example you usually can't alter ram amount and hard drive. And I recall some old Asus motherboards that would automaticaly open bios setup if it detected a problem with the cpu frequency or multiplier.

But that said, it does sound like your problem is more than that. If you can't get it working right you might consider a bios upgrade, if available.

I would first try a clear CMOS using jumper and if that does not work, a BIOS update. Of course, if it is under any type of warranty, contact the manufacturer first and let them tell you to do the update. That way if it fails, they are responsible for replacing the board.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
