Recently i noticed whenever i restart my PC, There is no BIOS screen, it's completely black, monitor doesn't load anything, it stays black for a long while (i don't know about 2 minutes or so), then the monitor turns on like it's black but lights on or you can visibly see that the monitor is on, after that the WINDOWS loads. So what's the problem here? This is an HP Pavilion dv6-7043cl entertaintment PC i am talking about, i have no external monitors connected, neither did i ever since i bought this laptop. It is a generic pnp monitor on Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 Here is more information: OS Name Microsoft Windows 8 Pro Video Graphics Intel HD graphics 4000 with up to 1696MB total graphics memory Hard Drive 1TB 5400RPM hard drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection Display 15.6-inch diagonal HD BrightView LED-backlit display (1366x768) Version 6.2.9200 Build 9200 Other OS Description Not Available OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard System Model HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC System Type x64-based PC System SKU B4T93UA#ABA Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz, 2501 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) BIOS Version/Date Insyde F.23, 12/14/2012 SMBIOS Version 2.7 Embedded Controller Version 52.24 BIOS Mode Legacy BaseBoard Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard BaseBoard Model Not Available BaseBoard Name Base Board Platform Role Mobile Secure Boot State Unsupported PCR7 Configuration Binding Not Possible Windows Directory C:\Windows System Directory C:\Windows\system32 Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume1 Locale United States Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "6.2.9200.16442" Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB Total Physical Memory 4.91 GB Available Physical Memory 0.98 GB Total Virtual Memory 8.78 GB Available Virtual Memory 3.95 GB Page File Space 3.88 GB Page File C:\pagefile.sys Hyper-V - VM Monitor Mode Extensions Yes Hyper-V - Second Level Address Translation Extensions Yes Hyper-V - Virtualization Enabled in Firmware No Hyper-V - Data Execution Protection Yes
they come up, you just aren't seeing them. hit the bios key once the system is powered on, usually either "del" or "f2". i usually just smash both of them, worst comes to worst you'll get a keyboard error prompt and that will get you into bios anyways.
Ok so today i tried presing "f2", "f10", "del" key after restarting my computer and all i saw was a black screen and then heard loud beeps whenever i pressed those keys and the bios screen did not show up. What could be the problem? However, if i do not press anything and restart my pc, windows does load, but i cannot access the bios screen O_O
