Closer Look:

It's time to take a look at where all the magic happens. In other words, the BIOS! Like all BIOS, there is a main menu page. From here you can select different categories, each containing settings you'll be able to adjust. The first section we'll be looking at is the Standard CMOS Features. In this section you'll be able to adjust date and time, view information about IDE and SATA devices, and you'll be able to tell the system what to halt on during startup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next up, we've got the Advanced BIOS Features. Under this section you'll be able to change slightly more advanced features. These include changing boot priority and enabling the flash screen on startup. You'll also be able to enable S.M.A.R.T., which can prove to be extremely useful. Another useful feature in this section is the ability to back up a BIOS image to the HDD. The following two sections are Integrated Peripherals, and Power Management. Both sections will allow you to adjust things that fit their respective names. For instance, in Integrated peripherals, you'll be able to adjust the SATA controller, the eSATA controller, or manage G-SATA RAID settings. In Power Management you'll be able to adjust things such as Power On By Mouse, or Power On By Keyboard.

 

 

 

The final section is PC Health Status. Here you'll be able to view things such as temperatures and voltages. The two BIOS password sections simply open a red box. In this red box you'll input the password you'd like to use. Or you can do what most of us do, and just not use a BIOS password.
