How do you enter BIOS Utility Setup?

Post by Kurt.Krueckeberg »

According to the Airtop3 Owner's Manual (page 12), you bring up the BIOS settings by turning on the PC "while holding down the DEL key."

When I do that, the 'B' light on the front stays amber-colored and never turns green, and the Airtop doesn't enter the BIOS settings utility or boot the OS.

Thanks for the reply.

However, the only way I was able to enter the BIOS Settings (after pressing the DEL key while the B light on the front of the Aritop3 was amber-colored) was to disconnect the HDMI cable from the discrete graphics port and connect it instead to the on-board video port.

Should I have had to do this in order to see the BIOS settings? I had previously set the BIOS setting for "Default Display" to "On-board Graphics".

Really this is a first time I hear about such issue. I know about the issue with entering BIOS under Windows10 and we even have a Application Note for this:

But possible there is a some reason behind your findings - entering BIOS and display output should be connected - so if you set 'on-board graphics' and you have one display only, the signal should be send to the embedded GPU and not external.
