I'm not saying this is the reason this is happening in your particular situation but I'm just telling you that I've had the exact same problem and it turned out to be a stick of ram that died. If you have more than one stick of ram or a replacement, try alternating between them to identify if this is the problem.

I was searching months for a decent solution for this problem with same NP Samsung model. There are an incredible key-combination to boot from DVD-ROM and finally to get access. First thing is to reset bios configuration with RTC BIOS pins, located besides RAM slots (alternatively, you can remove the CMOS battery for a moment). Then, insert a bootable USB ...

It may be that your drives are "incompatible" in the meaning that the do not cooperate well on the same ATA-port/bus. Try every possible alternative that you have a option (jumper) setting for on each drive (Master, Slave, Cable sel). If you're lucky, one option of all possible will work. It is possible that there will be no working option.

Usually, there are two methods of doing this: Clear the CMOS by removing the battery and shorting the reset pins (requires moving a jumper usually not available on netbooks, refer to motherboard manual for that). Doesn't always work. Reflash the BIOS. You'll get rid of the password for sure, but it it fails you'll get rid of the motherboard too. The link ...

Try to add an admin password to your bios, reboot, enter bios and enter password. It's weird, I know, but some bios works this way. You should be able to access some more sections. If not, then do a bios upgrade. If it still doesn't have that option, then you are out of luck.

Plain and simple: No. The BIOS must support it. If it doesn't you are out of luck.

In some server and other "very serious" motherboards you can access BIOS via terminal connected to COM port, but I guess most of consumer motherboards have no such feature. There is also Intel System Management, but I think this is available for servers. It is designed to manage computers remotely and you can change BIOS options with this. Image source: ...

No you cannot change BIOS settings without a functional video adapter. However you can try following: Check if your motherboard has on board video output. For access to BIOS, you can use the cheapest video adapter you can find that fits in the slot on motherboard. You donot need a powerful 3D accelerated video adapter for gaming.

Continuous beeps on startup usually implies bad RAM. Try to open your laptop and take out the RAM and put it back in. If your problems continues use Memtest to test your RAM memory. If the tests fail than you know that you need to change your RAM. You can find Memtest here

This is a bios setting not an OS setting. You should be able to disable it through the bios, but it depends on the bios if you can replace the image. I imagine that some bios' are that configurable but not most.

From the OP: The problem has been solved. You need to hold the Insert key down while powering the laptop on. You will then get prompted for the supervisor password

I have worked through scenarios like this many times. It looks like you are doing all of the right things. I would try again with Ubuntu (text mode sometimes works better), and if the keyboard and mouse are not working then use an external keyboard and mouse plugged into the USB port. Usually, if you cannot boot an Ubuntu live CD with standard hardware ...

@Ramhound was right, after going through very basic troubleshooting with ASRock, they RMA'd it. I got the replacement in last week and it's been running for a few days now without any issue.

The most likely reason to get this error is that windows has a problem finding the disk it is trying to install itself on. This can have several causes, but you posted that you already had win7 installed. That probably means a system which is not decades old, which has SATA and which is probably set to AHCI mode. If this is the case then you can not ...

That isn't BIOS related. It is an issue with a Windows installation. And if you tweak the BIOS to boot off whatever hard drive, if it ever tries to load that Windows then it'll give that BSOD. You should google the details of the BSOD e.g. BSOD pci.sys And you would then see that -nowhere- does the information there say 'BIOS'. BSODs are almost never ...

Start over (sorry). Not sure what the point of having dual-drives & putting an OS on each...You'd get better performance with Win8 on the faster of the two HDD's. Then, change location of your user folders to the other HDD. Keep only Windows 8 & programs on drive 1). Next, create a VM with 7 as guest. Virtualbox should do the job fine. VM also gets ...

Then you would need to remove ...

Depends on what you mean by "get this to work". That drive support OPAL 2.0, which allows various software managed encryption schemes to use hardware accelerated encryption. It also allows for pre-boot authentication (PBA) for encryption, such as BIOS/EFI schemes. If you want to use PBA (ie a password/pin at the BIOS/EFI) then you'll have to switch to a ...
