BIOS Settings - Auto Configuration and Defaults
In addition to the automatic configuration options offered in several specific areas of the BIOS setup (memory timing, hard disk autodetection, etc.) most BIOSes also offer a menu selection to automatically set all options in the BIOS to predefined settings.
Note: Auto configuration
selections will not generally replace the settings in the Standard Setup section, in order
not to wipe out any specific settings you have entered for your floppy or hard disk
drives, or the current date and time.
Warning: It is prudent to
record your system's current settings on paper
before loading any default settings so that you know what you have changed and can undo
the automatic settings if necessary. You may also find it useful to reference this procedure to help set your key
settings again after doing a default load.
