How to enable Windows 7 and view basic settings and settings on Windows 7
Sooner or later, many usersto face the question of how to go into BIOS. On "Windows 7" or in any other system this can be useful when crashing and reinstalling the operating system when the distribution is on removable media, or if some additional parameters are included. Let's consider the basic methods. This can be useful in the future.
What is BIOS: general information
Before we start to consider the question of how to include the BIOS on Windows 7 and make the necessary settings, let's see what this system represents, why it is needed.
In simple terms, the BIOS isa small device located on the motherboard, in memory of which all the basic information about the "iron" components and settings of the devices installed in the computer system are stored.
In addition, the BIOS setup ("Windows 7"or any other OS) allows you to set completely different boot sequence, get information about the characteristics of hardware, enable or disable the devices themselves or their additional features, and even overclock the processor.
How to log in to BIOS on "Windows 7": the standard method
Now we turn to the main problem. How on "Windows 7" to include BIOS? Yes, it's very simple. Any motherboard manufacturer initially embeds the BIOS BIOS and assumes the use of special keys to enter.
For sure, many owners, for example,stationary computer terminals paid attention that at the moment of switching on after the signal of the system dynamics signaling that BIOS checked all the "iron" components, one can see in the middle or bottom of the screen an inscription suggesting pushing this and that to launch the BIOS.
Most often this is the Press Del to run Setup (orsomething else like that). Thus, the question of how to "WINDOWS 7" include BIOS, is solved by pressing the Del key. However, depending on the manufacturer, such a technique may prove ineffective.
Most often this applies to laptops. Here the situation is somewhat more complicated, because the keys used differ. However, most of the keys are F2, F12, F1, Esc, less often - F3, or combinations like Ctrl + Del + Esc (or Ins), or Fn + F1. Typically, laptops are expected to use several basic combinations, which on the initial download screen are indicated after the label with a suggestion to use any push to enter the BIOS. True, this line on the screen is displayed for a very short time, so immediately it is worth paying attention to it. In principle, if the user did not have time to see which key it needs, you can reboot and press the pause button (Pause / Break key) when the inscription appears.
How to open BIOS on "Windows 7" and see basic information
Now a few words about the fact that the majorityusers just do not know. The fact is that in any OSes from Microsoft there is a special section of information about the system. And the Seven is no exception. Just here you can see the data not only about the hardware, the software environment or the operating system itself, but also get information about BIOS. Often this may be necessary in case of installing a more recent firmware BIOS.
You can go to that section, of course, and throughstart the main menu using administrative tools or utility utilities (it all depends on the version of Windows itself), but it's better to apply a universal solution - enter the msinfo32 command in the "Run" menu, called by the Win + R keys. On the start page, general information and basic data are displayed.
Interestingly, the system information componentsare constantly updated, and that's why sometimes you can see that there is an inscription opposite the BIOS operating mode stating that it is obsolete. What does it mean? This means only that you need to change the firmware BIOS on a newer one. But to do this without certain knowledge is not recommended categorically.
Instead of an afterword
Here, in fact, briefly and all about how to"Windows 7" include BIOS. As for the settings, you need to be very careful. Nevertheless, there are some recommendations. For example, you need to set the system date and time exclusively in the BIOS, and not in the system, by calling the appropriate settings from the system tray. In addition, it is in the BIOS settings that you can connect additional features such as the Virtualization Technology, and also change the priority of devices in the boot sequence (Boot Sequence) to use the first device optical disk or a regular flash drive.
You can generally reset all parameters to the factorysettings, etc. You can, of course, use the "native" utilities of the motherboard manufacturer, but, as a rule, they do not allow fine tuning of the BIOS. However, we are not talking about this now, since it is possible to talk about the settings of the basic and additional parameters for a long time.
