Recently, I tried to enter the uefi bios to change an audio setting. On start-up I got a screen only showing ' ASUS UEFI BIOS UTILITY - EZ MODE'. See screenshot.
This remains static until I shut down system. Mouse and k/b have no effect (USB, PS2 corded and wireless mouse).
I have contacted the manufacturer (it's a specialist pc company in the UK) and they could only offer what I have already used (DEL, F2 etc) and re-starting with the motherboard support disc.
Contacted ASUS, which is not easy since the motherboard serial no. doesn't seem to match and I can get no further with my inquiry.
Strange is this, the system boots properly into Win 7 SP1 with current updates and doesn't seem to have affected the system.
It maybe due to the bios becoming corrupted and I would need to buy a replacement mobo which would be the same model.
The problem then arises with activation with the new board.
If I have to do so, I have in mind to use the Advanced Token Manager to create a backup of my activation.
I haven't used it before and I would appreciate any recommendations for it's use.
Grateful for any advice on this issue.
