I have EliteBook 8770w with HP ProtectTools enabled and just turned on the TPM security. I restarted and tried to access the BIOS, my password is accepted but pretty much all the options are disabled. Is this from the TPM chip?
A friend ask me to upgrade her G70-460US Notebook PC to Win 8.1 from Vista. The bios doesn't have a secure boot option and when checking HP the update for this machine doesn't show it either. It this notebook to old to update to Win 8.1? If not where do I find the Bios upgrade with the Secure Boot option?
2 beeps I thought was a memory issue but the screen doesn't say anything about a memory problem. there are 3 options 1 boot to windows 2 boot options and the 3 I cant remember. option 2 and 3 may be out of order. I have looked in bios for memory test to turn it off but I don't see it. pressing F1 (first option) boots normally and system runs great as usual. 1 other thing, the battery light flashes red 4 times and then holds white for a second then cycles back to the flashing red. this all started at the same time. I tried to do a bios update but im already running the latest version so I get the window that says it wont be completed. the battery does seem to last a very long time as it usualy does, its a 9 cell battery.
I have a new dell latitude 6510 notebook and now i will install Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit again. When selected "Boot List Option" under bios settings i see legacy and uefi but i can´t "Add Boot Options" - Warning "File System not Found". Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit is installed and working under legacy but not working on uefi. When uefi selcted windows 7 pro 32 Bit is installed and when installation is finish can´t find bootable device.
Everyone: Absolutely cannot boot from CD-DVD even if I turn OFF Secure Boot and UEFI and my machine lists my CD-DVD as a boot option. When I then try to boot from the CD-DVD, I get an error message. (Optiplex 7010 Mini-Tower with Win 8 Pro 64-bit, an Intel i5 3470 processor, 8 GB RAM and 500 GB hard drive. It has BIOS version A16 right now.)
I started a thread on this issue in Desktop Hardware Forum - [URL]...
On my X1 Carbon, I had to move from Win 8.1 pro to 8.1 Ent. I did a fresh install from scratch to only install what I need.During my setup, I had to disable Secure boot, to boot on a USB Key, install 8.1 Enterprise. Now that everything is working, I would like to re-enable the secure boot option.
If I don't it directly in the BIOS, the laptop doesn't book any more.Do I have to import key from my 8.1 Ent to the Bios or something like this?
My laptop was running Windows 8.1 with SecureBoot enabled just fine. But I just swapped out my boot drive for a bigger SSD and, when I tried to boot from my USB installation media (to do a fresh Windows 8.1 install), nothing would happen (the screen would just flash when I tried to select the USB drive). I realized I had to disable Secure Boot in order to boot from the USB drive and then to enable booting from legacy/non-UEFI devices.
So now I've been able to install Windows 8.1 and it's running without a hitch, but Secure Boot is still in the disabled state. When I enable it, I can't boot from anything. How can I re-enable Secure Boot with my fresh Windows 8.1 install? Or if I have to reinstall, what steps do I need to take this time?
I am trying to disable UEFI Secure Boot on my Thinkpad Yoga S1 but it keeps getting re-enabled after a reboot. If I set secure boot to disabled I can boot into the non secure OSes installed on the machine imediately afterwards but if the machine is restarted the Secure Boot seting in the BIOS is re-enabled. It's important for me to have secure boot disabled as I use OSes without secure boot.
I try to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS on the following screen :

But if I re-enter the BIOS either after booting into an OS or simply re-entering the BIOS, Secure Boot is back on:

I have also tried to disable "OS Optimzed Defaults" but it also returns to enabled after a restart.
Link to image 3
Some of the other BIOS settings save correctly so I can't figure out why the secure boot settings don't. The BIOS version I have is the latest (1.18).
It's inconvenient to manually disable secure boot each time I want to use the laptop. The two operating systems (Ubuntu and Android x86) do work reasonably well once booted.
I have a W530, with i7 and 16G standard setup. I want to enable HV-X and found they are marked as Disabled, and gray-out in BIOS, also date is gray-out also.
i7 must support virtualizaion, while time setting is gray-out, I think this is either a security issue or a BIOS bug, but I had same problem with 2013 Feb BIOS, and also update to 2014 latest BIOS, same problem here.
I'm attempting to enable BitLocker on a Latitude E7440 running Windows 8.1. The system is in UEFI mode with Secure Boot enabled, so I'd like to use Secure Boot for integrity validation. I have the appropriate GPO set, but if I try to enable the TPM protector, I get the following warning event in the BitLocker-API management event log:
BitLocker cannot use Secure Boot for integrity because the expected TCG Log entry for variable 'SecureBoot' is missing or invalid.
This is immediately followed by:
BitLocker determined that the TCG log is invalid for use of Secure Boot. The filtered TCG log for PCR is included in this event.
The system therefore ends up configured with a regular platform validation profile instead of using Secure Boot. Is this a problem with the firmware on the Atmel TPM on the system, or is it something else?
Yesterday, I updated to win 8.1. The process appeared to go smoothly, but I now have a number of issues:
1 If I close the lid and reopen, the sytem does not wake up. It does not wake up if I press the power button. All I can do is a hard shutdown and reboot. This occasionally gives an error message on restart, but has not produced any solutions.
2 There is a message about secure boot not being configured
3 The support app has a cross on it and won't work
No doubt there are other problems, but number 1 is the killer....
Under Control Panel, Sound, Speakers and Headphones Properties, Tone Controls Tab, the Apply Button is grayed out for my Bass/Treble settings which reset to 4 every time my PC restarts if I change them. I cannot set the Bass/Treble levels permanently where I want them (Bass - 4 and Treble - 0) because the Apply Button does not work. I have two identical models of this PC with the same problem - both HP Pavilion dv6-7138us with Beats Audio and AMD cpu. Can the Apply Button be fixed? The Beats Audio Control GUI (also in Control Panel) has Bass and Treble settings that remain where set.Perhaps Beats is overriding Sound in Control Panel? I have a boxed Windows 7 32-bit installed on another PC and Sound has different control options - no Beats Audio. I would think if Beats modifies Sound controls in Control Panel, those controls should work. Otherwise, the modified Sound controls would not be there unless they are there in case Beats Audio is uninstalled or disabled? I see no way to uninstall or disable and have no desire to uninstall. IDT Audio is listed in Programs and Features.
I have HP pavilion dv7 which won't let me in BIOS to change boot order.
I have windows 8 32 bit installed and it keep booting normally no matter which key (Esc,F9,F10,F1,F2 etc) at start up, is pressed or keep pressed.. it wont stop booting and wont let me in BIOS. All it does it that if keys are pressed it will start beeping but then boot anyway.
I want to boot it from USB and install WIndows 8.1 64 bit.
HP Pavilion 14-b109wm Windows 8.1 How can I get the BIOS to boot from USB Drive first? I change the order in the BIOS but goes to Hard Drive first even when saving while exitting the BIOS? Trying to use a Password Recovery Program from my USB Drive to redo my admin password?
I updated BIOS (it's now Hewlett-Packard F.49) with a download from HP's website. I wish I hadn't done that because it made my laptop ill. When booting up it freezes and the only thing I see is the black screen with HP logo. No button works.
Later I've found out that BIOS itself ain't the problem (I tried to recover the old version for long without any success), it's the USB devices attached or the USB ports, dunno. My laptop boots normally and works perfectly if I take off all the USB plug-ins before I press the power button. After the black screen has passed I can plug in the USBs and they work too.URL....
System: HP Pavilion DV4-1125nr Notebook PC Product#: FR922UAR#AB System Board Id: 30F7 BIOS Version (before update): F.12 OS: Windows 7
I tried to upgrade the BIOS to F.55 which was provided by HP. After successfull installation of new BIOS windows shutdown properly. I start the PC again, HP Logo appears, and then nothing happen. The OS does not load or boot at all.
I also tried to boot using Windows 98 Second Edition CD (to load DOS) but this also did not work.
When changing the advance boot options in msconfig, I think I have found a bug. with the option of maximum memory selected, after the restart the computer will only read 3GB (when it should be 4GB). Also when going back in the advance menu of the boot tab, the maximum memory value is 0. (I also have no GUI boot selected, if that changes anything)
Here is my HW: Dell inspiron 15iR-2105 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits
My wife said she just fell a sleep with her computer on, ok but now her comp won't boot at all.
Here is the history:
1) At first boot the next morning she was getting IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I have tried all the options after pressing F8 without any success the comp kept on rebooting and showing the BSOD or 2 options start windows 7 normally or start windows 7 repair (recommended). When I select either of these I get the BSOD (IRQL....)
2) The command prompt was getting stuck on aswRvrt which I found out to be an avast file. 3) I wanted to secure my wife's data first so I removed the HDD used an USB adapter and connected to my computer and was able to get all of her data. I also was able to remove (so I think) avast from here comp by using www.avast.com/uninstall-utility and run it on her HDD. I also removed all avast driver in windows/system32/driver from her comp because after removing only the aswRvrt another avast driver was getting stuck (aswVmm)4) Now I still get the BSOD and when using command prompt, it gets stuck on classpnp5) I found that ALT + F9 would show me this:
Edit boot optionEdit windows boot option for: Windows 7Path:WindowsSystem32Winload.exePartition 1Hard Disk 9430081d
Press Enter To Sumbit
I do not know how to use this option so I just hit ENTER.
In the past we've restrict the boot options on our laptops vis bios sequence to prevent unauthorised reimaging of machines. However I've just noticed our newest Latitude e6230 still list all the devices as available despite these settings. Screenshots attached.
I want to update BIOS on freshly bought HP 350 G1 notebook from F.11 to F.12 - which does have only FeeDOS installed. This is why (on my Lenovo) I downloaded URL... which is HP Notebook System BIOS Update, to create bootable USB to update BIOS. Now, after going through first few steps and getting choices what exactly I want to do, I get all options disabled.
After few hours of trying different things, all 4 USB ports (2x 3.0 and 2x 2.0), 3 different USB sticks I gave up and turned to you Why I want to update BIOS: To install Windows 7, because now It stops at a point that CD/DVD drive driver is not found and need to browse for it. On windows site it was written that updating BIOS.
I have a T430 (2342-CTO) with an i7-3520M processor that I purchased at the beginning of 2013, and I loaded Virtualbox along with an appliance. When I ran the appliance, it gave me an error something to the effect that virtualization is unavailable on my machine.I went into the BIOS and found the settings for dynamic frequency and hyperthreading for the CPU, but I didn't see any entry for virtualization - where to look or what to do to enable this feature?
I have a training environment using W530 laptops that are enclosed in an area in front of the desks. It is not pratical to get to the computer as it is hidden away and therefore I need to be able to use the dvi cabled external monitor for bios setup, boot order, etc.
Right now the boot options are hidden from the external monitor until windows loads. Then the external monitor becomes active. Any way to bypass the laptop monitor altogether?
I was originally under the impression that my laptop (Thinkpad T510 4384-DS9) had NVIDIA Optimus display technology, however, I cannot find any OPTIMUS options in the BIOS under display (or any other section for that matter).
The reason I would like to know is that I have recently purchased a docking station (model: 4338) and 3 external monitors which I would like to use simultaneously.
Forgetting the fact that I'm using Linux, and that for most people this wouldn’t be a challenge worth undertaking, I would just like to know if my system actually supports 3 external monitors and the laptop screen concurrently using the docking station.
