I ran into an error a few days ago and now my laptop is stuck on the bios screen (even when i exit) and makes a loud beeping noise.
What do I do?
All advice is needed and appreciated.

What is your laptop model number? Look on bottom of laptop for any stickers or writing. Don't mistake model number for serial number, I just want to know the model.

So this is your laptop?

https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/K55A/

I googled your problem a bit and a user with another ASUS laptop said: "Enter Bios when the laptop powers on using F2. In one of the tabs within the Bios, search for "Secure Boot" and disable it."

Worth a shot.
It isnt my laptop, i have an intel celeron 1.7ghz dual core. Also the secure boot doesn't work

A single short beep simply means the motherboard is reporting it's OK so the hard drive is the one causing the stupidness. Let's try remounting the hard drive.

I'm making huge assumptions on how your laptop may function here. I own an ASUS laptop, but they're all different. What I am explaining is a general set of directions based upon my past experience working with lappies.

You may need a small philips screwdriver (looks like a +). Eyeglass repair kits are good for electronics.

Power off the laptop. Lay the laptop flat so the bottom is facing up. Remove the laptop battery. Disconnect power cable if applicable.

With the screwdriver, open the long rectangular slot cover on the laptop to reveal the hard drive. Laptop hard drives are typically encased in little plastic covering, screws, or held in with wee hooks. Gentily lift the hard drive, disconnect it from the laptop, and reconnect it. (While you're here, take a look at the hard drive and write down it's brand, capacity, and model number just in case.)

Close the lid of the hard drive seat and reinsert the laptop battery.

Power on the laptop.

See if it boots into operating system. If it still returns to splash screen and Bios, enter Bios.

Go to the tab which has boot options. Set the boot drive as "C". Leave Bios and make sure to save your changes.

See if the laptop boots into the operating system now. !! LISTEN TO THE HARD DRIVE AS THE COMPUTER STARTS. !! Healthy hard drives, even the little ones, should power on and make a smooth whirr. A few tiny clacks demonstrate that they are reading data.

Let me know how it goes.

    Anyone knows something about this error on switch ? "Wrong PKG1 Flashed! Erista pkg1 on Mariko"
    Gift
  • godreborn @ godreborn:
    erista is the switch that's hackable without a modchip. it sounds like you have a mariko unit (patched). how to fix -- I don't know. I know next to nothing about switch hacks.
    Gift
  • ChrisOwl @ ChrisOwl:
    That's the weird part. My switch is a lite one, mod-chip, SXOS 10.2.0. I followed a recent video showing how to migrate using the same model as I do, everything was fine until I hit the launch button and then atmosphere and this error appeared
    Gift
  • godreborn @ godreborn:
    I'd post on the forums about it. I'm not the person to ask about the switch, but I know some terminology.
