My laptop boots up to a small blue screen that needs a password. I am able to hit enter without entering a password. I am at a menu for Aptio Setuo Utility. I have no idea what to do in order to access my laptop again. The main tab allows me to adjust the date & time. The boot tab gives me the option to delete boot option, & the security tab allows me to set HDD password, user password & disable input/output interfaces. Plesse help

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode by continuously tapping the F8 key when you restart the computer.

 

Alternatively a possible fix found on Google;

 

1/ Select the Boot menu in the Aptio setup utility, select 'Launch CSM' and change to enable
2/ Select the Security menu n the Aptio setup utility, select 'secure Boot Control' and change to disable
3/ Select Save & Exit and press 'yes'
4/ Hold down the power button until the unit switches power off completely
5/ Switch back on and continually press the F9 button for about ten seconds; this should now allow the unit to boot up into the Windows Recovery menu
6/ Select 'Advanced Start Up' and wait until the recovery menu appears
7/ Select ' Advanced Options'
8/ Select 'System Restore' and select a date prior to when the problem occurred
 
Let us know how you get on..

Have you tried this.

Do you normally see this screen.

 

Do you at any time see the hard drive activity LED blinking.
