Advice 1: How to set bios

BIOS – base input-output system, the basic system input-output is a set of parameters defining a mode of operation of computer hardware. These settings can have a major impact on the computer performance, affecting the operation of the CPU, memory, hard drives, floppy drives and other systems.

First boot is produced with First Boot Device.

  3. In section Power management of the CPU cooler and case (para Hardware monitor). It is recommended to enable (Enabled) the control of all coolers (CPU Fan and Chasis Fan) and the Fan Profile set to Optimal. This will help avoid overheating and system failure of the processor or volatile of his work.

  4. In the section Boot Settings Configuration you can disable Full Screen Logo (Disabled) — then when you boot instead of the manufacturer's logo will be visible to more meaningful information about the results of testing the system.

Of course, it is possible to configure the bios in many other settings, however, we emphasize again the seriousness of any transactions with the BIOS. As a rule, most of the bios settings in an optimal way, providing if not the most productive, the most reliable operation of the system.

Advice 2: How to set the BIOS graphics card

The three-dimensional graphics accelerator or graphics card, may be built into the motherboard. Often used external video cards that do not need to do any settings in the system. But for the built in option to fine-tune. To configure the BIOS in the graphics card, you will need a minimum knowledge of the English language and the ability to navigate the text menus.

Specify the largest possible number from the available list to the selection, for example, 256 MB or 512 MB. This will allow the video card to work with the specified amount of memory and speed up the work of the graphics subsystem. Keep in mind that the used memory. If you have less than one Gigabyte, then at higher values of memory, the computer may slow down.
