    What do the function keys do during bootup?

    On my old computer during bootup, it would display some options. F8 for safe mode, F11 for system restore, etc. On the G75, there are no options, just a logo. Could someone post a list of what the keys do? Thanks

    Well you need to tap the F key before you see the "Asus ROG ;logo"
    The functions are as follows.
    1. esc = Boot drive options, and BIOS setup.
    2. F2 = BIOS setup
    3. F8 = Options for "safe mode"
    4. F9 = System recovery (will start the recovery from the "hidden recovery partition"
    .
    5. Delete = BIOS setup

    Edit: the above function keys are for those that still are using W7

    PS: see my second post for W8 BIOS access.

    Sorry for any confusion........my bad!

    Hello,
    I am new on this forum, and this is my first post.

    I have a brand new G75VW-T1432H, and I need to enter the BIOS, to modify the Boot Option Priorities.
    The problem is that, as soon as I start the computer, however quick I am to tap ESC or F2, I am nearly instantly prompted to the ROG logo, and then Windows 8 starts.

    I tried and tried without any result.
    Did I miss something? Or Is there a trick?

    Well these all work with W7
    But most have the same problem as you with W8.
    Yes in W8, those "F" keys will just bring you to the "log on" screen quicker.

    W8 BIOS Setup access:

    There's two ways to access BIOS setup in W8

    1. Open the charms, and go to the PC Settings application, select the General category and click the Restart now button under Advanced startup. Your computer will restart and you’ll enter the Windows 8s boot options menu, where you can access the UEFI BIOS and change other settings.

    2. You can also hold Shift while clicking Restart in the shut down menu
    to restart your computer into the boot options menu. This is a quick way to restart into the boot options menu, as you can access the Shut Down button from the Charms anywhere on your system.

    Thanks a lot for the super speedy answer, you saved my day!
    I could finally enter the UEFI BIOS.

    And here is a little trick to be able to re-enter the BIOS, actually using the F keys:

    When in the BIOS, go to the BOOT page, and disable the "Fast Boot" option.
    This will slow down the boot sequence a tiny little bit (1 second at the most), just enough for the computer to be able to consider an "F key" entry!!!

    You guys are Welcome!

    Good point about the "Fast Boot" @ frg62, forgot about that option.
    The Fast Boot prevents the "F" key function, just gets you to "log on" screen quicker (bypasses the faster
    boot sequence}.
    Because the "Fast Boot" option keeps W8 in a "Hybrid Hibernation" state.


    PS: if you are running a "Dual Boot" with W8, and W7, it is recommended to "disable" the fast boot.

    F9 boot keynot working

    Hello
    I believe since the last windows update this key no longer works. I use to tap it and with the Macrium stick in, it would boot to Macrium not Windows even though the boot order had windows first.
    Now I have to go to the UEFI to set boot order the older way.
    I am only a sub average user. Is there a somewhat easy way to get that key to do what it used to.
    My board is Asus Tuf Z 390-Plus gaming WiFi.

    Thank you

    THIS from Manual Library may help.

    Using jumpers to reset the CMOS is a bit over my head. I found that removing the battery then tapping default did the trick. Thank you for putting me onto the CMOS .
