Recently I closed my laptop, set it on a table then the next time I went to pick it up it went from boot up straight to the BIOS. I immediately pressed ESC and tried to exit. The computer would go black for a split second and then come back to the BIOS. I tried resetting default BIOS settings and the computer reset then went straight to bios again.

Here is the info about my laptop

Brand:             ASUS
Model:             UX302L
RAM:               8GB (installed myself)
Processor:         i5-4200
Operating System:  Windows 8

My question is how do I get past the bios into windows or at least windows start up repair?

  • If you're getting into startup repair (as mentioned in your question) you're actually getting beyond the BIOS already. It sounds like your OS is corrupted somehow. – James Mertz Aug 8 '14 at 16:00
  • My questions asks how I can get past BIOS into startup repair. I can only get into BIOS right now – user3913218 Aug 8 '14 at 16:08
  • Before your computer dumps you into the BIOS, it should be telling you some sort of error message. Also, since you can get into the BIOS, look around for something that will reset it to defaults, which should be a safe thing to do. Without an error message, it's like asking "My car won't start, why?" There isn't much information to go on (even if you do know the make/model). – Steve Aug 8 '14 at 16:34

Try these instructions:

  1. In Boot Menu -> Change FastStart to [Disable]
  2. In Security Menu -> Change Secure Boot to [Disable]
  3. Then 'Save Configuration & Exit', when the BIOS screen appears again
  4. Go to the Boot Menu again -> Change Launch CSM to [Enable]

This worked for me with Windows 10 on an Asus ZenBook UX330UA
