How to reinstall Windows on Asus laptop? Step-by-step instruction

Good day, blog visitors.

Any computer, regardless of the “stuffing” and the software used, sooner or later needs a clean installation of the operating system. This is due to various reasons. a new version has appeared, the old one is out of order, there is a desire to remove errors and others. Of course, reinstalling Windows on a laptop on Asus or any other manufacturer will help in all these issues. But today I’m just going to talk about the process associated specifically with the equipment from this computer giant.


Well, now let’s move on to directly hosting Windows 8 or any other OS version on the device:

When the system restarts, the display will show a message telling you to press any button to continue. Do it.

A plate will appear where you need to specify your preferred language. As a result, we select “Install”.

The “License Agreement” appears. We confirm reading.

Then we need a “Full Installation”.

Now we decide whether the process will take place with or without the removal of sections. Personally, I recommend allocating about 50 GB to the system disk. If you already have one, just click on the desired drive and then “Format”. We confirm our actions.

Create bootable portable memory

It should be said right away that you can reinstall the OS in different ways. Previously, it was popular from disk, since there was simply no USB memory. In the early days, many motherboards did not support such devices. But over time, it became possible to carry out the necessary procedure from a flash drive. And even today this option often becomes the only one, since many models simply may not have a suitable drive.

We’ll look at a no-disk option using only compact portable storage:

We find the image of the required OS. Usually Windows 7 is downloaded from different torrent trackers.

Install the UltraISO application. Since the program is paid, in order to use it, we press the “Trial period”. this will be enough for our purposes.

Go to the “File” menu and then “Open”.

Add the previously downloaded system image.

We go to “Bootstrapping”, and then “Burn the image”. A new window will open where we select “USB-HDD”, and then “Format”. We confirm the action.

At the end we are interested in “Record”.

How to install Windows 10 on Asus X540 Laptop. Enable USB Boot in Bios Settings

Preparation ( )

If the installed operating system still allows you to work, there are three fundamentally important steps to take first:

Prepare the necessary drivers (for a video card, network). Having them, it will be possible to find the rest of the elements in the future.

Check your computer for viruses with Comodo Internet Security or AVG AntiVirus Free

Copy documents from system drive.

If your device no longer allows you to complete the above points, try to find another one with which you can still do this.

Important drivers for the Eee PC model or any others are on the official website.

But copying documents from the system disk in case of laptop inoperability will not be so easy. If the device allows it, we move it to a safe place. If not, open the laptop, take out the hard drive and try to connect it to other equipment. Pulling out the data you need.

Using the fallback area

Also on some models, such as x54h, it is possible to use the recovery area. This is some space on the hard disk, which makes it possible to restore the system without a removable disk.

Important! If, after purchasing a laptop, the operating system has already changed, most likely it will be impossible to do this.

So, in order to use the tools from the backup department, we do a number of actions:

Restart the system and immediately hold down “F9”.

A menu will appear where we need to specify “Windows Setup” and confirm the action.

A corresponding message will appear at the end.

Turn on the device and specify the settings, as usually happens when you first start.

Well, as mentioned above, such a solution will help to cope with many problems. Sometimes even it comes up when the FN button does not work. But again, not on all models.

Reset Windows 10 in settings from the installed system

The easiest way to reset Windows 10 assumes that the system on your computer starts up. If so, then a few simple steps will allow you to perform an automatic reinstallation.

  • Go to Settings (via start and gear icon or WinI keys). Update and Security. Recovery.
  • In the Reset this computer section, click Get Started. Note: if during recovery you are informed that the required files are missing, use the method from the next section of this manual. Also, at this stage, an error may appear: Unable to find recovery environment.
  • You will be prompted to either keep your personal files or delete them. Select the option you want.
  • If you select the option to delete files, you will also be prompted to either “Just delete files” or “Completely clear the disk”. I recommend the first option unless you are giving your computer or laptop to someone else. The second option deletes files without the possibility of their recovery and takes longer.
  • In the Ready to Reset This Computer window, click Reset.

After that, the process of automatic reinstallation of the system will begin, the computer will reboot (possibly several times), and after the reset you will get clean Windows 10. If you selected “Keep personal files”, then the system disk will also contain the Windows.old folder containing the files old system (user folders and desktop content may come in handy there). Just in case: How to delete the Windows.old folder.

Automatic clean install of Windows 10 using Refresh Windows Tool

In the latest versions of Windows 10, a new function has appeared in the recovery options. “New Start” (formerly called the Refresh Windows Tool), which allows you to perform an automatic clean installation or reinstallation of Windows 10 with the preservation of files, but with the removal of preinstalled programs from the manufacturer. Using it allows you to reset when the first method does not work and reports errors.

  • In the recovery options, at the bottom under Advanced recovery options, click on Learn how to start over from a clean install of Windows.
  • You will be prompted to go to the corresponding page in the Windows 10 Security Center, click Yes.
  • Click the Get Started button in the New Launch section.
  • Check out what exactly Start Over is and, if you agree, click Next.
  • Wait for the Windows 10 factory reset to complete.

Upon completion of the process (which can take a long time and depends on the performance of the computer, the selected parameters and the amount of personal data when saving), you will receive a completely reinstalled and functional Windows 10. After logging in, I recommend that you also press the WinR keys, type cleanmgr, press Enter, and then click on the “Clear system files” button.

When you clean up your hard drive, you will most likely be able to delete up to 20 GB of data left over from the system reinstallation process.

How to reset Windows 10 or auto reinstall OS

Learn how to reset Windows 10 to factory settings, reset, roll back, or otherwise automatically reinstall Windows 10 on a computer or laptop. This has become easier than in Windows 7 and even in 8, due to the fact that the way of storing the image for reset in the system has changed and in most cases you do not need a disk or flash drive in order to perform the described procedure. If for some reason everything described does not work, you can simply perform a clean install of Windows 10.

Resetting Windows 10 to its original state can come in handy in cases where the system began to malfunction or does not even start, and you cannot perform a recovery (on this topic: Restoring Windows 10) in another way. In this case, reinstalling the OS in this way is possible with the preservation of your personal files (but without saving programs). Also, at the end of the instructions, you will find a video in which the description is shown clearly. Note: A description of problems and errors when rolling back Windows 10 to its original state, as well as possible solutions, are described in the last section of this article.

Update: in the latest versions of Windows 10, additional methods of resetting the system have appeared, including removing all programs preinstalled by the manufacturer of the computer or laptop. Automatic clean installation of Windows 10, Restoring Windows 10 from the cloud.

The video below shows both ways to run an automatic reinstallation of Windows 10 described in the article.

How to reset Windows 10 if the system won’t start or factory reset won’t work

In cases where Windows 10 does not start or a reset in the settings does not work, you can try using the manufacturer’s tools or with the recovery environment.

If Windows 10 does not start, but shows a blue screen with an error, then clicking on the “Advanced options” item, you can get into the recovery environment. If the system starts, but you cannot reset the OS, go to Settings. Update & Security and click the “Restart now” button in the “Special boot options” section.

After rebooting, go to the “Troubleshooting” section, and then click on the item “Reset the computer to its original state”.

Further, just like in the first described method, you can:

  • Keep or delete personal files. If you select “Delete”, you will also be prompted to either completely erase the disk without the possibility of their recovery, or simply delete. Usually (unless you are giving the laptop to someone), it is better to use a simple removal.
  • In the Select Target Operating System window, select Windows 10.
  • In the Reset this computer window, review what will be done. remove programs, reset settings to defaults, and automatically reinstall Windows 10 Click Reset.

After that, the process of resetting the system to its original state will begin, during which the computer may restart.

If your device was preinstalled with licensed Windows 10 upon purchase, then the easiest way to reset it to factory settings is to use certain keys when turning on your laptop or computer. For details on how to do this, see the article How to reset a laptop to factory settings (also suitable for branded PCs with a pre-installed OS).

Windows 10 factory reset errors

The first and simplest methods when you have problems resetting Windows 10 to factory settings consist of the following steps:

  • Make sure there is enough free space on the system disk partition (drive C). Ideally 10 GB or more.
  • Remove all third-party antiviruses and other protection programs before starting recovery.

If, when you try to reset Windows 10 after restarting, you see the message “Problem returning your PC to its original state. Changes not made ”, usually this indicates problems with the files required for recovery (for example, if you did something with the WinSxS folder, from the files in which the reset occurs). You can try checking and restoring the integrity of Windows 10 system files, but more often you have to do a clean install of Windows 10 (however, you can also save personal data).

The second error option is that you are asked to insert a recovery disc or installation media. Then there was a solution with the Start over function described in the second section of this guide. Also in this situation, you can make a bootable USB flash drive with Windows 10 (on the current computer or on another, if this one does not start) or a Windows 10 recovery disk with system files included. And use it as your required storage device. Use a version of Windows 10 with the same bitness installed on your computer.

Another option in the case of a requirement to provide a drive with files is to register your own image for system recovery (for this, the OS must work, the actions are performed in it). I have not tested this method, but they write that it works (but only for the second case with an error):

  • You need to download the Windows 10 ISO image (the second method is in the instructions on the link).
  • Mount it and copy the install.wim file from the sources folder to the previously created ResetRecoveryImage folder on a separate partition or computer disk (not the system one).
  • In the command line as administrator, use the command reagentc / setosimage / path “D: \ ResetRecoveryImage” / index 1 (here D acts as a separate section, you may have a different letter) to register the recovery image.

After that, try again to start the system reset to its original state. By the way, for the future, we can recommend making your own backup copy of Windows 10, which can greatly simplify the process of rolling back the OS to a previous state.

Well, if you still have questions about reinstalling Windows 10 or returning the system to its original state, ask. Let me also remind you that for preinstalled systems, there are usually additional ways to reset to factory settings provided by the manufacturer and described in the official instructions.

Distribution of new, sometimes interesting and useful materials from the website. No ads and free computer help for subscribers from the author. Other subscription methods (VK, Odnoklassniki, Telegram., YouTube, Yandex.Dzen)

Yes, the reset seems to be completed and Windows has already started loading, after the cycle.

And this cycle is never interrupted, for example by a blue screen with a button “additional parameters”? She could help with recovery. Well, and so, perhaps the fastest way without going into reasons to decide is to make a bootable USB flash drive with a 10 somewhere and put it cleanly from it (if there is important data, then you can do it without formatting).

Good day! Please tell me, if you reset to the factory ones for a licensed win 10, then the license will also be lost?

Good day! Is it possible with such a reinstallation to install Windows on another disk (SSD, currently on HDD). I would be very grateful for your help

How to install Windows 10 on an Asus laptop with UEFI (using the ZenBook UX310UA model as an example)

Good day.

Not so long ago, I got a compact laptop complaining about the impossibility of installing Windows 10 (the error “Installing Windows on this disk is impossible. Perhaps the hardware of this computer.”). Well, I had to figure it out.

In fact, the problem was (I think) related to the fact that the user incorrectly created the bootable media and tried to install the system from it. Although, I will immediately note that in some cases, incorrect BIOS / UEFI settings may be to blame.

In this article, I will show you a step-by-step example of installing the OS on an ASUS ZenBook UX310UA laptop (I will add that on many ASUS laptops, especially from this line, the steps will be similar).

Installing Windows 10 on an ASUS laptop

Creating a bootable USB drive

To work, you need the Rufus utility and a boot image with Windows 10 OS.

How To Install Upgrade to Windows 10 on Asus Laptop Free. Updated 2020

A small but very versatile utility for creating bootable media. Allows you to create flash drives for BIOS and UEFI (for GPT and MBR disks), with different OS (Windows 10 is supported!). In addition, it is completely free and supports Russian.

Windows 10 ISO image

Requirements: you need an image that does not exceed 4 GB in size. Second, discard the different 20-in-1s at once. you need a simple option like “Windows 10 x64 home”. those. in the image one specific system (ie do not use any “Win 10 home / Pro / Ent x32 x64, 5 in 1”). There are a lot of such images on the net. (for example, can be downloaded from the official Microsoft website).

And so, insert the USB flash drive and launch Rufus (Important! All data on the USB flash drive will be deleted, so copy everything you need from it).

Next, specify the ISO image (recommended for installation above), then select the option “GPT for computers with UEFI interface” (file system. FAT 32). “Standard Windows Installation”. Click the “Start” button (the settings are shown in the screenshot below).

Update from 01.24.2019 (since the Rufus program has been slightly updated, and its design has changed.I will give one more screen for version 3.4 so that no one gets confused).

In general, the flash drive is ready, you can move on.

How to create a bootable UEFI GPT USB flash drive with Windows 10, or why errors occur when installing the system on a new laptop (PC). a guide for beginners.

Loading the optimal settings in the BIOS. enter the boot menu.

BIOS settings are not always set by default (default). Therefore, first of all, I recommend to go into the BIOS and restore them.

By the way, you can immediately connect the bootable USB flash drive created in the previous step. I recommend connecting to a USB 3.1 port (installation will be faster, especially if your flash drive supports this standard).

We connect the flash drive to the USB 3.1 port (installation will be faster!)

To enter BIOS. Immediately after turning on the laptop (the ASUS logo should appear) press the F2 key (preferably several times to be sure.).

In BIOS (UEFI): first of all go to Advanced Mode (F7 key). see the bottom of the window.

In the “Save Exit” section, select the “Restore Defaults” option. Then save your changes. button “Save Changes” (you can just press the F10 button. after which all changes will be saved and the laptop will go to reboot. Enter BIOS again with the F2 key).

Restore Defaults. restore settings to default

After restoring the settings, entering the main BIOS (UEFI) window again, press the F8 button (enter the Boot Menu). In it you should see our USB flash drive. select it and press Enter.

Note: in the boot menu you (most likely) should display 2 lines with the name of the installation flash drive. You need to select the one opposite which “UEFI OS” appears ().

Boot Menu. select bootable media

Next, the laptop must start installing Windows. a “circle” should run in the center of the screen.

If the installation does not occur. check if you correctly recorded the installation USB drive and set the UEFI settings.

Windows 10 setup process

The first window is a greeting with a choice of language (I omitted it, just press Enter). In the next window. click the “Install” button.

Next, a window with the license terms will appear. agree and click “next”.

In the window with the choice of installation option, select “Custom: Windows installation only (for advanced users)”.

In some cases, reinstalling the OS may be the reason for the refusal of warranty service (although, this is quite rare, but still. Most often, the warranty is given for hardware, and you can install any software.).

deleting all partitions on the hard drive

After that, you can create one partition on the entire disk and install it into it (some recommend creating two partitions, one for installing Windows, the other for user data). If create two sections. then under Windows I recommend allocating at least 100 GB of space.

In my case, I just created one partition for the entire disk (931.5 GB) and clicked “Next”.

Boot Menu. select bootable media, if at this step you see an error that “Windows cannot be installed on this disk.” (see screen below). then you most likely created the bootable USB flash drive incorrectly (see the first part of this article). It is also possible that you downloaded an “incorrect” ISO image with the system.

Actually, if all is well. Windows installation should begin. Here you just need to wait while the files are copied (if you connected a flash drive to USB 3.1, then wait not long, 5-6 minutes).

When the files are copied, the laptop will reboot and the installation will continue. Several windows will appear in front of you: but there is nothing interesting in them, you will need to enter a username, set network settings (you can also skip all the steps and do it after).

I lowered all these windows, tk. they are of no practical interest, and I think that everyone will cope with them and independently.

Actually, this completes the installation. Then you can start installing the drivers (in my case, it was enough to go to the official website on this page:

But to be honest, just in case, I also resorted to Drive Booster and for extra. 5 minutes I updated not only the drivers, but also all sorts of libraries: DirectX, Visual C, Net FrameWork, etc. (without going anywhere and not looking for anything).

A short video with the sequence of installing Windows on a device from ASUS.

Let’s summarize

In this article, we looked at a large number of useful settings that can make it easier to install and get started inside the Windows operating system. However, the mission of Starus Recovery does not end there. we strive to continue to share with you effective tips that can help you both in your daily work with a PC and in a professional office environment.

Account management

Account management is a kind of command post, with which you can work with a large number of simultaneously functioning accounts. There are not many important parameters in it, but let’s focus on some.

E-mail address; app accounts

A handy utility that allows you to group all your mailboxes, thereby eliminating the need to visit various resources. You can check all mail in the built-in Microsoft application. Mail.

In this window, you can set up the Windows Hello service, which works by recognizing the user’s face, change the password or PIN code of the computer.

A useful option if you are not the only PC user. Set it up if a child uses a computer and needs his own desktop.

System settings

Convenient battery level tracking and energy management. By clicking on the battery icon located in the right corner, you can always adjust the operating mode of your mobile PC depending on your needs:

In the Power and Hibernation settings tab, you can easily configure how long Windows should be in a working state before going into hibernation mode, whether on AC power or on battery power.

Don’t like annoying system messages? In the Notifications & Actions tab, you can always turn off Microsoft’s suggested tips and tricks.

The well-known sound mixer allows you to adjust the volume settings for each application separately.

Let’s say a program is working too loudly and its intrusive sound does not give you the opportunity to comfortably watch YouTube videos. Mute it with the mixer and focus on what matters most.

20 ways to speed up Windows 10

Not so long ago, the Windows 10 operating system got its start. Its main difference from the previous ones.

Quick installation of Windows 10

Contrary to popular belief that the process of installing an operating system is long and tedious, this is not entirely true, especially if you are using an SSD. Connect a bootable disk or USB flash drive to your laptop and press the power key to turn it on.

Note: The process of installing Windows on a mobile PC is not very different from a similar process on a stationary PC. Some points can be swapped, however, you will get a clear idea of ​​your next steps.

You will be greeted by the Windows Installation Wizard. Enter your geolocation and confirm that the selected keyboard layout is correct.

At this stage, the installer will offer to connect to the wireless network. We recommend that you complete this step, as in this case Windows may involve fresh additions in the installation process. However. if you do not have Wi-Fi or for some reason you do not want to connect to the network immediately, you can skip the item.

License agreement

Wait until the operating system installer completes the quick settings and read the license agreement, which, of course, no one will read :).

Computer control circuit

Now Windows will offer to choose exactly how you plan to use the operating system: for personal use or for managing an organization. We recommend choosing the first option.

This step will require you to log in with your Microsoft account. If you have not created it before, register. Those who have an account from the days of older versions of Windows can get personalized OS settings according to the old data. This is a great way to save some time when setting up a new computer.

Two-factor authentication

If you use this account security tool, you will need to enter a text code after entering your account password. Perhaps you think this is superfluous and just a waste of time. However, such a slight inconvenience allows you to significantly protect yourself and your data.

Face recognition function

If you are the proud owner of a laptop that supports Windows Hello, the installer will prompt you to customize it. It will enable the face recognition service to simplify registration in the operating system.

A simple yet effective way to keep your data safe. Enter the PIN that will be required to authorize the user.

At this point, Microsoft will offer you personal privacy settings. As a rule, I don’t bother with geolocation and other tracking features, however some users don’t like them. You can always enable or disable them if you want.

Wait for the installation process to complete.

Windows Insider Program

If you are a fan of new products, then this parameter will be very interesting for you! It allows users to be among the first to try out new features introduced by Microsoft.

To do this, open the Update & Security menu, open the Windows Insider Program tab and click Get Started.

Following further prompts from Microsoft, set the options you would like to see on your PC.

Applications and features

One of the most popular built-in utilities aimed at managing all programs and applications installed on our computers.

Have you ever encountered applications that struggle for supremacy when opening a file of a particular format? We had to and, unfortunately, sometimes it can be very annoying. However, before allowing users to despair, Microsoft came to the rescue and introduced a useful default Apps feature. With it, you can easily set up programs once and for all that will open only certain types of files without interfering with others.

The Startup tab remains no less important. After all, as you can imagine, the number of applications launched together with the operating system directly affects its performance. Using this parameter, you can enable and disable autostart of any program you are interested in.

Configuring Security Settings on ASUS Notebooks

Unlike many computers and laptops, modern ASUS devices are equipped with a special protection against system overwriting. UEFI. You will have to remove this protection if you would like to install some other operating system, for example, Linux or older versions of Windows.

Fortunately, removing the protection is not difficult. you just need to use this step-by-step instruction:

  • Go to “Boot”, which is in the top menu.
  • Further to the section “Secure Boot”. There you need to put “Other OS” in front of the “OS Type” parameter.

On ASUS notebooks, you need to configure the BIOS in rare cases, for example, before reinstalling the operating system. The rest of the parameters were set for you by the manufacturer.

Configuring the BIOS on an ASUS laptop

BIOS is the basic system of interaction between a user and a computer. It is responsible for checking important components of the device for operability during boot, and with its help you can somewhat expand the capabilities of your PC if you make the correct settings.

Setting up on ASUS laptops

Since all the settings have already been made by the manufacturer, you just have to check their correctness and / or adjust some to suit your needs. It is recommended to pay attention to the following parameters:

  • Date and time. If you change it, then in the operating system it should also change, but if the time in the computer is entered via the Internet, then there will be no changes in the OS. It is recommended to fill in these fields correctly, as this may have a certain effect on the operation of the system.

Configuring the operation of hard drives (parameter “SATA” or “IDE”). If everything starts up normally on a laptop, then you should not touch it, since everything is configured correctly there, and user intervention may not affect the work in the best way.

  • If the design of the laptop implies the presence of floppy drives, then check if they are connected.
  • Be sure to see if USB support is enabled. This can be done in the “Advanced” section in the top menu. To see a detailed list, go from there to “USB Configuration”.
  • Also, if you see fit, you can put a password on the BIOS. This can be done in the “Boot” section.
  • In general, the BIOS settings on ASUS laptops do not differ from the usual ones, therefore, checking and changing are performed in the same way as on any other computer.

    How important is it to configure BIOS

    It all depends on whether you bought a fully assembled laptop / computer or assembled it yourself. In the latter case, you need to configure the BIOS for normal operation. Many purchased laptops already have the correct settings and have an operating system ready to work, so you don’t need to change anything in it, but it is recommended to check the correctness of the parameters from the manufacturer.

    I have an elementary question. On the ASUS laptop, in the BIOS there is no data in any of the sections about which OS is installed and which one you can choose.

    Hello, before installing Windows, I dropped the BIOS settings to standard, the laptop now does not see the hard drive, tell me what to do.

    Artem, hello. Try changing the settings in the “Boot” tab. In this article, the author mentioned hard drives in the second paragraph of the section “Setting up on ASUS notebooks”.

    Herman, hello. In your laptop, the SSD is integrated into the motherboard, because it is in m2 format and is connected via a PCI-E slot. In this case, it is quite possible that the drive is not displayed in the BIOS before the operating system is installed on it. In your case, you need to solve the problem with displaying the SSD when installing the OS. You do not need to install any additional drivers, since you are installing Windows 10. Just make sure that the following parameters are activated in UEFI:

    First go to the “Advanced” menu, find the item “PCH Storage Configuration” there, and then open it. Set “M.2 SATA mode” to “Enabled”. Such manipulation will help in the event that the SSD and HDD use the same physical channel. 2. Now you need to go to the “Boot” section and select the “CSM (Compatibility Support Module)” item there. Find “Boot from PCI-E” or “Pci expansion device” and change the value to “UEFI” if Legaсy is there. Not every SSD like yours supports Legasy mode, as it is simply unnecessary.

    After rearranging the system, the error “Reboot and select proper boot device” came out and then it is thrown into the BIOS all the time. I do not know what to do other sites did not help with the problem, please help!

    How to install Windows 10 on a laptop

    In general, installing Windows 10 on a laptop HP, Lenovo, ASUS, Samsung, Acer or any other does not differ from a computer one, except for a little entry into the BIOS. in both cases, you can install it for free.

    You will need to enter the BIOS if you decide to install from a USB flash drive or disk. how enter and configure BIOS of all kinds in a computer or laptop, you can find out right here.

    setting, windows, asus, laptop

    And so, and so it will be correct, only the second option is easier and all your data will be saved.

    Only this option is suitable if you have an old laptop, or rather Windows 7 or 8 is already installed on it.

    If you have a new laptop, or rather a clean one, then only the first option is through the BIOS. We will assume that we figured it out, entered the BIOS and set everything up.

    Installing Windows 10 on a laptop directly

    I note right away that if you install from a USB flash drive, and have not yet recorded it, then here is the program and instructions on how to do it correctly.

    The first thing you will see during installation is a white bar at the bottom of the screen. Wait until it runs from the left side to the right, then the process itself will begin and you will be prompted to select a language.

    There is not always a choice (depending on the assembly). if there is, we choose and continue further.

    There is nothing to choose in the next window. It has only one “install” option, which is what we do.

    Now, as almost always happens, you need to accept the agreement by placing a bird, it is not necessary to read it at the same time. decide and move on.

    You will now be presented with a choice of two options. First update and second clean install. We choose the second option. a clean install of Windows 10.

    Selecting the Windows 10 installation partition on a laptop or computer

    It is worth stopping here for a while. The partition on which Windows 10 will be installed needs to be formatted.

    Sometimes there can be only one, sometimes several. If there are several, but others have your data, then format only one, do not touch the rest.

    In any case, to format, you need to click on the section with LMB, then the format option will become active.

    If there is only one section, then you can immediately divide it into two or several. Decide for yourself.

    After formatting and pressing the button, the installation process will begin next. Here you will need to wait a little. 10. 20 minutes, the laptop or computer will restart.

    Next, you actually do not need to do anything, but only wait for the completion and the appearance of a window with a choice of settings.

    In it, I recommend leaving everything as it is. click on the line: “use standard parameters”.

    In the next window, select the owner and continue by clicking on.

    Now I recommend just clicking on the option to skip this step.

    Further, I recommend filling in only the first line, leaving the rest empty, if you wish, fill in this data later.

    The next window will provide you with a PIN-code. you want to put it, you want to skip.

    In the next window, I leave everything by default. if you want to use the clouds, you can customize them.

    The final stage of installing Windows 10 on a laptop

    I will not show further with pictures; without them, everything will be clear. In the process, you will be prompted to connect the network.

    I always skip this step and connect the Internet to complete completion. Somehow something went wrong with the Internet connected.

    At the final stage, the applications will be automatically configured, you have nothing to do there, but only wait about 5 minutes.

    It is also possible that some picture will not be an exact copy as here on the site, there will not be all of them, or there will be several more not included in this entry.

    This should not mislead you, the main point will always be as described and shown above.

    NOTE: it is rare, but it still happens that the laptop turns off during installation or does not complete the process.

    Why this is happening and what to do then you can find the answer in the lessons section of the menu (at the very top).

    Today I cannot put a link, because only tomorrow I will write this article. Good luck with the new OS.

    Overclocking the CPU on a laptop

    In principle, overclocking on both stationary computers and laptops is identical. That is, the overclocking scheme itself, simplified and roughly speaking, consists in increasing the values ​​of the motherboard bus multipliers, as well as the processor, and increasing the voltage supplied to the processor and the bus. There are no fundamental differences in this process, no matter what PC you have. But there is also the most important detail. the fundamental differences between the cooling system of a stationary PC from those used in laptops. In an ordinary computer, there are several coolers responsible for the flow of air into the system unit and, accordingly, the outlet, not to mention the separate cooling of especially hot CPU and GPU.

    In laptops, the cooling system is most often represented by one cooler that blows out the heat removed through copper pipes from the processor and from the video card. That is, on laptops, more miniaturized and squeezed cooling due to design features, which is not a fact that it will cope, with the increased heat generation from overclocking.

    Step 1: Prepare the cooling system

    Due to the design feature mentioned above, overclocking the laptop processor requires more thorough preliminary preparation. In particular, this applies to the maintenance and modernization of the cooling system. We recommend that you pay special attention to this before starting overclocking.

    Change the “native” thermal paste to a newer and higher quality third-party.

    Also, consider purchasing a dedicated laptop cooling pad with built-in coolers. With the right choice, such an add-on can significantly reduce the operating temperature of your laptop.

    Having carried out all the necessary maintenance and possible upgrades of the cooling system, you will not only increase the level of personal comfort when working with the device, but also provide an opportunity for overclocking.

    Stage 2: Configure Windows Power Consumption

    Before moving on to overclocking by multipliers and voltage, you need to set the computer to such a power consumption mode, in which it will not be “shy” to use all the energy offered to it. For this:

      Open the “Start” menu, use the search bar to find “Control Panel”, then open the desired application by clicking on its icon or by the “Open” button.

    Change the value of the “View” option to “Small icons” and go to “Power Options”.

    Install the High Performance schema.

    Attention! Keep in mind that the “High Performance” mode will drain your laptop faster even during normal operation and idle times.

    With the permission to consume as much power as possible to ensure the appropriate level of performance, your laptop can run an order of magnitude faster after choosing a circuit, at the expense of taking higher average clock frequencies. However, if you want a significant increase in performance, you should do overclocking specialized.

    Laptop processor overclocking

    Overclocking any element of a computer, from RAM to CPU, is a specific occupation, fraught with some risk, especially on a laptop. However, if you are determined to increase the performance of your mobile PC in this way, have patience and are willing to proceed with caution, then there is a chance of success. This article will cover the procedure for overclocking a processor on a laptop.

    Stage 3: Acceleration

    The procedure itself is performed in the BIOS or UEFI of your laptop. It is important to understand that both the motherboard and processor are overclocked and are not multiplier locked models. You can check the compliance of the components with these requirements by the BIOS itself by the present or absent settings. But if for some reason you cannot or do not want to enter the subsystem immediately, then you can check the characteristics of the components on the manufacturer’s website and on the corresponding forums dedicated to overclocking.

    When your processor and motherboard support overclocking, and you have prepared the cooling system and power consumption and decided to overclock, you need to enter the BIOS, set the bus and processor multipliers, and increase the voltage supplied to the CPU. There is no difference in comparison with a stationary computer here, so we suggest you read the detailed information on overclocking in our other materials using the links below.

    Be extremely careful when overclocking your laptop. Increase multipliers and voltage readings gradually, in minimal increments, while performing system stability tests. Remember that a laptop is more vulnerable to overheating and power surges than a desktop computer.

    In this article, we have analyzed the laptop overclocking process. By completing the steps outlined in all three steps, you will consistently ensure the required level of cooling to remove the increased heat generation, adjust power consumption for maximum performance and, finally, overclock your laptop by multipliers.
