Some users told us that their Windows computer automatically booted into the BIOS each time they turned it on. Even if they leave the BIOS and restart, it starts again in the BIOS. In this article, we'll look at possible solutions that can help you solve the problem.
Windows computer starts to BIOS every time
When a Windows 10 computer starts, it performs several steps. One of the steps is to check for any hardware problems, including hard drives, peripherals, and external devices. If there is a problem, the computer stops the boot process. Let's look at potential solutions:
- Check devices and external devices
- Set the right boot device
- Reset the BIOS
- Check if there is a key pressed.
Make sure you have a secondary computer to test existing hardware devices.
1) Check external devices and devices
Try to remove any external drive, device, keyboard and even mouse. It is possible that you have changed the keyboard, which works well on another computer, but does not allow you to start on another computer. If you have an old keyboard, try it.
2) Set the right boot device
If the boot manager does not find the right boot device, it will open the BIOS. Once in the BIOS, check to see if there is an appropriate boot device. It should be available in the Boot Priority section.
If you can not find your hard drive or SSD in the boot device list, you must change your hard drive. Check if it is plugged in correctly and if it is running on another computer.
If it works properly on another computer, your motherboard might not work properly. In this case, check with your supplier for an appropriate solution.
3) reset the BIOS
Take out the CMOS battery for a few seconds and replace it. Once done, restart the computer and it should boot directly into Windows. It will also remove any password set for the BIOS. You may need to change your CMOS battery if it does not work. Reset the BIOS settings if necessary.
4) Check if there is a pressed key
It may sound a little childish, but check if you pressed the F2 or F12 key or the Delete key. These hardware keys are usually set by the OEM to boot into the BIOS.
We hope that these tips will help you solve the problem and that the computer will start on Windows. You can also check with the motherboard vendor support team or where you purchased the notebook.
