I want my PC to switch on at 6:30am each day so my staff members can log in between 6:30 and 7:00. I'm not always up by 7am because I work the late shift. I'd rather not leave my PC on all night, for a number of reasons.
The PC has Windows 7 Professional SP1. It also has an Asus UEFI BIOS as pictured here (different CPU though, mine is AMD A4-5300). I'm not sure what other details are needed for this question.
I found these instructions: https://www.asus.com/au/support/FAQ/1004156/
The pictured UEFI is much the same as mine in all the key aspects.
As indicated I found the power settings and entered the time I wanted. I saved and exited.
The PC tried to start but failed. There were a few beeps (maybe 4, maybe 6), and a BIOS error message saying something about the CPU temperature. I switched the PC off.
I gave it a few minutes and tried again. This time a message came up saying Windows couldn't start. It seemed to go into safe mode, and asked if I wanted Windows to find and repair the startup problem. I hit OK. Then after a while, a message appeared saying Windows couldn't do a repair.
I went straight back to the BIOS and restored the default settings. Everything worked perfectly again.
Is there something I missed? Or is there a better way to get this job done?
Sorry to jump straight in with a question. Any help will be very much appreciated.
