How can i get into bios on Asus X53B laptop?

Postby divine_one » 23 Dec 2012, 17:16

It is not related with ET, so i post here.
My friend asked me to reinstall Windows on his laptop. I wanted to put a fresh system, without any unnecessary garbage that are preinstalled by the manufacturer.
The probles is that any of F1 - F12 keys, del, insert etc seems not work and i have no idea how to get acces to BIOS.
Maybe there is some combination of keys that i should press? Hmm... [smilie=dash2.gif]

Usually its F2 or DEL. Haven't heard that there would be some combinations to access in BIOS. Try start pushing the key right after you reboot. Maybe the there is not much time while it's pass this phase.

When i press F2 there is menu for diagnostic mode, debug mode, start wiondows normally etc. No BIOS. Same after pressing any other usual "BIOS" keys.

If you do not know what motherboard or BIOS manufacturer is on your computer. you can get it sorted out in this: Go Windows Start -> Run -> and write in the field Msinfo32 and then klik ok. It will tell you the lots information about the machine. I don't use windows and i don't have windows, so i can't test that how this works.

I found this list. I hope it helps.
