What is the difference between fail-safe defaults and optimized defaults in bios

failsafe defaults are settings that aren't necessarily the best settings for the computer but should work with any operating system, optimized defaults utilize the hardware to it's optimum capability

When my computer ons ,it shows that there is a microcode error and that i need to update my bios.because of that i can't make my system to boot.i am confused and i need your help please.thx

First try going into your BIOS and set it to "Optimal Defaults". To get into the BIOS when your computer first boots up keep pressing delete as its booting until you get to the bios screen and look for "Load Optimal Defaults" or something similar and then save and exit. Then tell me if that helped.

Why my pc show IDE #0 ERROR?

this error is shown cause the hard disk ide connection is not proper or defectuous ..check the HDD to see if it is functional ..and also check it to be inserted proper..
Also ..go to BIOS settings by pressing the F2 on start ..and in there choose the "optimal factory defaults" and save the changes with F10 after ...
If any strange setting had been done in Bios and caused this error ..this will bring it back to the factory settings and will make it work ..

My kid pressed f9 and the the mouse got frozen and i dont know what to do

first if the mouse did not get back after restart means that it is probably disabled...(Im not sure if it is from F9) ...if we talk about an external mouse the issue probably got solved after the restart ..if we are talking about the touch probably need a different approach ....Go to bios setting by pressing F2 on start if it is a laptop ..and del key if it is a desktop the Bios settings look for the optimal factory defaults ..and activate it by selecting and pressing ok (enter ) than save the changes with F10 and enter ..This action will reset all bios settings including any disabling forcing the computer to recognize again all devices..
If it is an external mouse..and USB probably need to run the driver disk again ..cause the issue may be from a defective driver ....

Key of perfect optimizer i want this key

I'm not sure that I understood what you are talking about but if you are talking about the optimal factory defaults ..these have to be set from the bios..and the key is different from one bios edition to the other ..for some models the key is F7 for most it is F9 ..but ..o the bottom of the bios setting page is written the key for the optimal factory defaults...just navigate from the first page if you do not see it ..and it will be in the list for commands..near the one that saves the settings ...
so all you have to do is see what is the key ..(probably F9 ) after you press it ..confirm with yes (enter ) and to save all changes and get out from Bios press F110 and enter ..after that all the settings will be optimized..and the disabled devices that in default have to be enabled will activate themselves..

Bios setting problem?

Optimal Defaults and Fail Safe Defaults are two different sets of values. If you set one after the other the second would have replaced the first. Try setting back to optimal again.

If you still see errors relating to the Ethernet adapter find the Ethernet adapter in your BIOS settings and set it to Auto. If you still see errors try all of the available Ethernet settings.

Hope this helps you get your computer running again.

I have no video output on my desktop, a gateway media center GT5034. all the lights blink, showing haddrive activity. I have tried to different monitor and another video card.

Try removing your RAM cards leaving only 1 at a time in a try to boot until you figure out which RAM card is causing it. Sometimes bad RAM can cause issues like this.

If that doesn't work, try unplugging the power from the tower, and then open up the case and remove the CMOS battery which is on the main board (motherboard). It's a little flat round battery. Leave it out for 30 seconds or so, then put it back in, close your case, and try to boot up. What this does is clears the CMOS so it will be set to default bios settings. After you do this, it may show a picture on the screen, and then you can go back into your bios settings and set anything you need to back up. Or you can just load "Optimized Defaults" and then press F10 to save the settings and reboot.

I hope this helps. If not, let me know and I'd be glad to further assist you.

Best Regards,
