0280:Previous boot incomplete - Default configuration used


Error Code: 0280 Previous boot incomplete - Default configuration used


Message Meanings : Previous POST did not complete successfully. POST loads default values and offers to run Setup. If the failure was caused by incorrect values and they are not corrected, the next boot will likely fail. On system with control of wait states, improper Setup settings can also terminate POST and cause this error on the next boot. Run Setup and verify that wait-state configuration is correct. This error is cleared the next time the system is booted.

What does the above mean ??? If the BIOS does not see a particular device loading ( like Hard Drive ) Try bringing up the Bios setting F-2 and reset to default. Hope this helps

How do I reset the bios cause when I enter the setup wont let me click on it


When you go into BIOS Setup Hector, you can no longer use your mouse

You have to use the Keyboard

When you go into BIOS Setup you are automatically in the Main menu

To go on..........
There are 3 main BIOS manufacturers. Some smaller ones too, but doubt they wrote a BIOS program for your laptop.

Phoenix, Award, and AMI.
Award merged with Phoenix now.

There are also different versions produced by EACH BIOS manufacturer.
Therefore I cannot just start guiding you, without knowing.

Some examples however......

This style has the menu's across the Top.
One example - Main / Advanced / Security / Power/ Boot / Exit

Use the Left Arrow key to highlight the menu you want, then press the Enter key.
The navigation guide is at the bottom, and to the Right.
DOES NOT state navigation guide.

Tells you how to navigate around in BIOS, and how to make changes, and Save Changes.

Same thing for a BIOS Setup example, that has the menu's listed i n an order.

Standard BIOS Features (Standard CMOS Features)
Advanced BIOS Features
Integrated Peripherals
Power Management Setup
PnP/PCI Configuration
Etc.

Use the Down Arrow to highlight the menu you want, then press the Enter key.
The navigation guide at the bottom, tells you the key to press, to make changes.
THEN Save Changes.

IF you do Not Save Changes, it will be like you have done nothing at all.
It's because you HAVE done nothing at all. Just looked around, unless you save changes.

[Usually the Page Up or Page Down key; or the Minus ( - )
or Plus ( + ) key; is to make changes.
Change Value ]

You may see F12 to save changes, or a Y/N, or Yes/No

The Y is just shown as an upper case Y for clarity. Press the lower case y.
Then press the Enter key.

If everything goes bad:
Look at the navigation guide at the bottom, in BIOS Setup.
You will see a key listed to press, that is Load Default Settings.
Usually an F6, but don't quote me on that.

You made a boo-boo in BIOS Setup?
Go back into BIOS Setup. Find the Load Default Settings key.
Press it, then the Enter key.
Now you are back to square 1.

Bat bios checksum problems solve


Step 1:
Update ASUS BIOS b> Insert bootable floppy disk or USB drive. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive.
(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.) Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. Copy AFUDOS.EXE from CD to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file. "afudos
/ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Wait. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded. The final message will be
"Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard. After the update is complete, the utility will return to the DOS prompt. Remove your floppy disk and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Save and reboot. You're finished. b> Update Using EZ Flash Copy your new BIOS files to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the system is at POST, press "Alt" + "F2" to enter EZ-Flash. Alternatively, on late model motherboards you may press "Delete" to enter BIOS setup, then access EZ-Flash from the "Tools" option on the navigation bar. (Select Tools > ASUS EZ Flash 2 > YES) Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Insert your floppy or USB with the new BIOS file. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. Wait for your system to check the update file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. Wait. Let the update procedure run until it finishes. Do not switch off or reboot or you will ruin your motherboard. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Reboot. You're finished. b> Update Through the Internet If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility. You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Close all Windows applications if any are running. Launch the ASUS Update utility from the Windows desktop by clicking "Start>Programs>ASUS>ASUSUpdate>ASUSUpdate." The "ASUS Update" main window will then appear. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu. Click "Next." Select the ASUS FTP site nearest you, or choose "Auto Select." Click "Next." From the FTP site, select the BIOS version that you wish to download. Click "Next." Start the update. Wait for it to complete.

When a laptop/computer prompts for a BIOS date and Time setting every time you boot up, this indicates the BIOS battey is flat or nearly flat. This BIOS battery needs to be replaced and the BIOS Date and Time setting needs to be configured etc.

Can i boot from usb


Hi,

I'm sorry but the answer is no.

You only have floppy, hard drive and cd-rom options. With some Dell models the USB is seen as a secondary hard drive from within the BIOS so maybe (if your bios supports it) you can change boot order there.

Usually thats not the case so you mainly have to boot from the CD/DVD to install or run a DOS or linux command.


Regards.

Entering bios setup


Occasionally, most computer owners will need to access BIOS on their computers in order to change or update the computer's most basic operations; such as memory and boot order.

Different computer manufacturers will have you press different buttons to access BIOS depending on the model you have. For example, on my laptop, I press F12 to enter the BIOS setup utility.

Here's how to figure out how to enter your computers BIOS setup utility. 1
Turn your computer on or shut it down and restart it if it is already on.
  • Step 2 As soon as the computer starts up, watch for a message that informs you about which button you will need to push in order to enter setup, aka BIOS.
  • Step 3 The opportunity to press the correct key to enter BIOS passes by quickly, so you need to find that key and press it before the computer moves on to the next stage of booting. If you miss your chance, just restart the computer and try again.

    You can always access BIOS, even on computers that dont have an operating system installed. This is because BIOS is part of your computer's motherboard hardware and has nothing to do with Windows, Linux or whatever operating system you may be using.
