How To Enter ASUS Laptop BIOS To Configure Before Booting

There are several reasons why you should enter the BIOS of your ASUS laptop to configure both the system and hardware to run properly.

At a glance, BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is a firmware or software that is used to regulate the basic functions of the hardware of a computer, both laptop and PC.

Unlike the operating system that is in storage such as HDD or SSD, this BIOS is stored in a CMOS (Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) ROM embedded on the motherboard.

The presence of the BIOS allows POST (Power On Self Test) instructions to be carried out to identify and configure each component of the system from the VGA card, RAM, processor, keyboard, mouse, SSD, HDD, CD / DVD Drive, to other hardware during the process boot.

Therefore the BIOS function is considered very important for a computer device. If you have a problem that causes your ASUS laptop to not turn on or boot, then changing a few things in the BIOS can be the solution.

For that, for those of you who want to enter the BIOS from an ASUS laptop, you can view the tutorial as follows.

How to Enter the ASUS Laptop BIOS

  1. First, you can turn on your ASUS laptop.
  2. Press the button immediately F2 on the keyboard before the operating system runs.
  3. If successful, you will immediately enter BIOS.
  4. On the main page, there are various menus that are served to configure the system and hardware.
  5. After completing what you want, then you can exit with the menu Save & Exit Setup.
  6. Furthermore, the ASUS laptop will boot the operating system as usual (if it is already installed).

Usually you don’t need to manually configure the BIOS of your ASUS laptop because the factory settings are already in ready-to-use condition so this method is usually used when you encounter problems only.

Because the BIOS is very important, you can also provide a password  so that the existing BIOS settings cannot be changed by just anyone.

Broadly speaking, the hardware settings in the BIOS are vital enough so you must be careful to change everything that is in it. Especially if you plan to overclock to improve the performance of existing components.

If you have set overclock wrongly, it does not close the possibility of ASUS laptops will actually be damaged. However, not all BIOS versions allow you to set important things like that to avoid user-caused errors.

So always be careful if you are dealing with the BIOS and do not change anything that you do not understand. Good luck.
