In the opening window, select the box Use BIOS Default and press Enter. After running the alert box click Ok and again press Enter.
With constant reboots of the mobile computer, check the state of the battery and cooling system of the laptop. Unplug the power cord from the computer.
Remove the battery and reconnect the adapter 220 Volts. Turn on the laptop and check the quality of his work.
The main symptom of overheating mobile computer – periodic spontaneous reboot of the device. Disconnect power from the laptop. Remove the lower part of the body. This requires you to Unscrew a few screws.
Vacuum internal elements of the computer. Moisten a cotton swab weak alcohol solution. Clean fan blades of dirt. Make sure that on the motherboard of a laptop is no swollen capacitors.

Advice 3: How to revive a laptop battery
Most batteries of modern notebooks lend themselves to good recovery. Sometimes it is enough just to install the necessary program or use the built-in function mobile computer. But most often need mechanical intervention into the structure of the battery.
You will need
- - screwdriver;
- - multimeter;
- - the cyan-acrylate glue.
First, determine the type of battery used in your laptop. Usually it is a Nickel metal hydride (older models) or lithium-ion (relatively new) items. To do this, visit the website of the manufacturer of the mobile computer. Sometimes it contains information about the methods of recovery of the battery by using the utility built into the BIOS.
If to revive the battery using the program is impossible, remove the battery from the laptop previously unplugging it from the mains. Disassemble the battery and remove all items from the unit.
When working with Nickel metal hydride batteries using these steps. Separate from each other all the batteries. There may be more than ten pieces. Prepare a few light bulbs. It is better to use a car bulb (21 watts). Solder the wires to them and connect one lamp to each battery. Leave the device for about 10 hours. It is necessary to completely discharge the batteries.
Now load all the elements. You can use the power supply of the mobile computer and the aforementioned lamp. Connect the bulb to the batteries in series and connect the battery with the charging block of a laptop. Repeat the cycle of discharge and charge elements 2 more times. After that, collect the battery and connect it to the laptop.
When working with lithium-ion batteries, you will need the cyan-acrylate glue. Without it you will not be able to connect the elements after recovery. Be sure to fully discharge the battery. Remove all batteries from the case and carefully detach the interconnected units. They usually consist of two or three batteries. To do this you have to unsolder the metal plate connecting the battery.
Measure the voltage of each element. If it is significantly below 3.7 V, the unit will need to be replaced. Using 5-Watt lamps lower the voltage of each cell up to 3.1 V. This same procedure be done with new batteries. Assemble the battery, insert it into the laptop and connect the charger.
