  1. Hi,
    Can anyone help with a problem with my PC ? on startup I get "Please enter setup to recover BIOS setting"
    Action I take - press F1 into setup, press ESC -press OK . machine then boots up normally?
    The date time etc are all current so they have been retained (so don't think its battery)
    This happens on every startup. I have tried updating the BIOS and flashed that from Asus site so thats current.. Any suggestions greatly appreciatied.

    Go into bios.
    look for where the date and time menu is located. change it to reflect your current time and date and save.
    look for where the storage drives (hdd/ssd/dvd-rw drive) menu is located. detect all storage and save.
    change boot order to hdd1 (first), hdd2 (second, if applicable), dvd-rw or usb devices (third) and save.
