How to correctly configure BIOS on HP laptop
How to correctly configure BIOS on a computer and laptop?
If you are a confident PC user, then you must have encountered a problem when the computer breaks or stops working exactly as you need it. It is difficult to imagine a life in which there would be no need for a personal computer. As soon as the user encounters similar problems, he is immediately taken to look for a solution to this problem. And it often happens that you have to eliminate the problem yourself. The more difficult the breakdown, the more difficulties in the repair you have to face. But what if you have to contact the BIOS (BIOS) to eliminate the consequences, the descriptions of which in the native language are enough? It is for such cases that information is provided with which you can understand what BIOS is in Russian.
You need to start naturally with how to go to BIOS. To do this, it is advisable to read the instructions for the motherboard or to the computer. Recently I did it myself. There was so much interesting. You can also carefully look at the monitor screen when downloading a computer. Usually in the lower part there will be an inscription which key needs to click in order to get into BIOS.
The most common are Del, F2, F10, ESC keys. If these keys do not work, you need to watch the instructions.
If you get into the BIOS, you will immediately find yourself in EZ Mode (see the picture below)
This mode is most likely made in order to adjust the various BIOS settings without going into an extended mode.
Above the left you see time and date in the system. By pressing the gear, you can conveniently and clearly set the current values and clearly.
To the right is information about the model of the motherboard-H87M-E and BIOS versions-0604. The version was updated thanks to the previous article. Below is information about the processor and its clock frequency. Even lower you can see the amount of RAM and the frequency in the brackets on which it works.
To the right is a falling menu with the choice of BIOS. In motherboard with chipsets 7 and 8th series, they made support of the Russian language. Now changing the settings will be even easier and more understandable.
Below you can see information about the temperature of the processor and its voltage. This information is updated in real time.
To the right you can find out almost all the information about the established RAM. You see how many slots you have on your motherboard. Which of them are set modules of RAM. What is the volume of each of the models and at what frequency the module works by default.
From this information you can find out whether the two.Channel mode is included or not. In this case, the memory modules are located in the channel A and B therefore the two.Channel mode is turned on.
There may also be a drop.Down menu, with the choice of XMP profile. If the memory supports these profiles. You can immediately choose the right. In our case, profile 1 was selected in which memory operates at a frequency of 1600 mhz.
Information about the installed fans is displayed to the right to the right. In this motherboard there are 3 connectors for connecting. One of them is for the processor fan, the other two are the chassis (body fans). Usually one is installed at the top on the back wall of the case to remove the warm air. Another chassis of the chassis is installed below in front for cold air. You can read more about the cooling of the computer here.
Below you can choose the performance of the system depending on your needs. It seems to me, if we choose energy conservation, then the system will quickly discard the processor frequency and the voltage thereby saving energy. I usually choose optimal.
Below we can use the mouse to change the priority of loading. This field shows all the devices connected to the computer. By changing them, you can simply install the loading from a flash drive or from an optical drive for installing the operating system. I recommend installing your drive (SSD or HDD) in the first position and if necessary to install the OS (I hope these cases will be rare) use the boot menu. The latter can be called when downloading a computer using a F8 key.
At the very bottom are the buttons: shortcut (F3), additionally (F7), SATA Information, download menu (F8) and standard (F5)
The shorter button opens a list for quick access to your chosen functions. These functions are selected from the extended mode by pressing the F4 key or the right button at the point. In this case, a window appears in which you choose where you want to add the selected point to the bookmarks (label) or to the Favorite tab
The button additionally allows you to go to the extended BIOS settings mode.
The SATA Information button displays information about your drives connected to SATA ports.
The download menu button displays the menu in which you can choose the download from the flash drive or from the optical disk for the Windows reinstall.
The button is standard. Allows you to drop the default BIOS settings. Universal settings will be installed] the motherboard [/Anchor]. With a probability of 99.9% the computer will work on these settings. Therefore, you do not need to worry to change the settings. Need to try. If you return everything by default. (This does not apply to voltage settings)
These settings in the window of Ez Mode should be enough for almost all inexperienced users. To save the changes or cancel them, or enter the additional mode, click on the button in the very top to the right
In the pop.Up window, select the desired item
Several options for entering BIOS on HP
1) if you are with a relatively new device (~ release after 2013.)
If your laptop is new, then when you turn on any loading screen, it will not show (. : on old devices after turning on, the download screen with the keyboards for entering BIOS was shown).
Whether it likes it or not, but now such a trend of manufacturers (in t.H. And hp): How to download Windows as soon as possible and present the opportunity to go to work with the OS (and, as a rule, because of this it is not possible to go to BIOS/UEFI).
Therefore, immediately after pressing the power button. Press the ESC key sequentially (several times!). The system menu should appear (as in the photo below) with several options (approx. : for entering BIOS. You need to click F10):
- F1. Viewing system information;
- F2. Diagnostics;
- F9. Viewing the boot menu;
- F10. Entrance to the BIOS/UEFI settings (what we need!);
- Enter. Continue loading (Windows).
System menu on the HP laptop (called on the ESC key)
If you do not have time to press the ESC button before loading Windows, then you can clamp the ESC button before turning on the laptop (and keep it until the system menu does not appear).
By the way, also on some models of laptops you can immediately press the F10 key (t.E. Enter BIOS without an intermediary in the form of a system menu).
2) if your laptop is already enough old.
In this case, immediately after turning on, you should display the download screen (on it, most often, the BIOS settings button is indicated). Below the photo shows a couple of options (in one case, the F10 key is used to enter. In another ESC).
Note! I also note that on laptops released until about 2008., The Delete button can be used to enter BIOS.
3) if you have Windows 10/11.
In this case, you can enter the BIOS without pressing any system buttons at all (though the method is suitable if the system is loaded and you can open its parameters).
So, first open the Start menu and move into the parameters of the system (see. Screenshot below).
Then we open the section “Update and safety”. Tab “Restoration”. It should have the “Reload now” button (see. Special boot options).
Next, your laptop will be rebooted, in the menu that appears, select the “Diagnostics” option. After the “built.In software”. Actually, here you are in the BIOS/UEFI settings (see. Screenshots below).
F1, Delete, F11. Pay attention to these buttons also. Some devices (mainly old ones) support only these keys for entering BIOS (when pressed on ESC. Nothing will happen on these laptops).
Specification. Pay attention to the documents (unless, of course, they are preserved) that went along with the purchase of a laptop. Almost always such information is indicated in them.
Connect the device to the network. The fact is that some laptops do not allow you to enter the BIOS when working on the battery (I don’t know if it is done specifically, or “glitch”. ).

I also recommend that I familiarize myself with a large article with the tables for entering BIOS on the mustache of different manufacturers.
