Reset the BIOS to Default Settings (BIOS)

Use this procedure to set the BIOS settings to factory default settings using the BIOS Setup utility.


Caution - Resetting the BIOS to factory default values overwrites any custom BIOS settings.

  1. Access the BIOS Setup utility.

    See Accessing BIOS.

  2. Press the F9 key to automatically load the factory default settings.

    A message appears prompting you to continue this operation by selecting OK or to cancel the operation by selecting Cancel.

  3. Confirm the changes by highlighting OK, then press Enter.

    The BIOS Setup utility window appears with the cursor highlighting the first value on the window.

  4. To save the changes and exit the BIOS Setup utility, press the F10 key.
