🚀 Solving BIOS Opening Issue on Startup: A Comprehensive Guide 🚀

When you power on your computer or laptop, encountering the BIOS instead of the expected boot sequence may signal underlying issues with equipment operation or configuration. Fortunately, these issues are often non-critical, and identification and resolution are possible.

📘 Understanding the BIOS Startup Scenario: Reasons and Fixes 🛠️

Before delving into potential issues, note that the initialization start screen might provide insights into the detected problem. This information can streamline troubleshooting and avoid unnecessary operations.

🔍 Boot Options Investigation: Key Steps to Follow

  1. Check if the correct device is set as the first boot device in the BIOS (preferably your system disk or Windows Boot Manager).
  2. If the issue arises after a BIOS/UEFI update, reset boot mode settings, considering enabling Legacy mode (or CSM) and disabling Secure Boot.
  3. Reset BIOS parameters if affected by a dead battery or electrical network issues.
  4. For Asus devices, explore Advanced mode (F7) and disable Fast Boot if present.

💡 Addressing Hardware and Connection Concerns 🖥️

If the above steps prove ineffective, hardware issues may be at play. Consider the following:

  1. If boot devices aren't displayed, reconnect the disk or try a different cable.
  2. Disable newly added hardware if the problem arises after an upgrade.
  3. Pay attention to USB devices and hubs; faulty connectors or equipment can trigger BIOS entry.
  4. Check SATA-connected drives; try with only the system drive connected.
  5. Boot without disks to identify potential HDD or SSD issues, including compatibility.
  6. In case of major changes, reset BIOS to safe defaults, following the manufacturer's recommendations.

🔌 Complete Blackout as a Last Resort ⚫

If all else fails, try a complete blackout:

  • For a PC: Turn off, unplug, press and hold the power button.
  • For a laptop: Turn off, disconnect charger, remove the battery (if possible), hold power button, reconnect battery, and turn on.
