    BIOS startup not happening


    Until I did a Windows 10 fresh install my PC was set in the BIOS (and still remains the same) set to startup the PC at a predetermined time everyday. ASROCK H77. And it did so daily until the Windows 10 Pro install. Did the update first to activate. Then fresh install. Like I said BIOS has not changed. Any ideas. Searched internet multiple ways with no resolve. ANy help would be much appreciated.

    Can you be more clear on what problem you are having? What do you mean by PC was set at BIOS? You mean legacy mode or uefi mode?

    Turn off fast startup in Windows 10. Fast startup does not give control back to bios when it shuts down, it really puts computer into deep sleep.

    BIOS is UEFI as far as I know. ASROCK Z77 (listed incorrectly at first). In the BIOS there is an option for scheduled startup or RTC. Is is set for everyday at 4 am for the computer to come on automatically (I shutdown every night), not sleep or hybernate. Which WIndows automatically boots at startup. Everything was good in WIndows 7.

    Wouldn't it have been some scheduling done in the Windows environment? Like maintenance times, or something?

    If Windows Fast Startup is enabled, your PC will go into a hybrid sleep mode, even if you select shut down. As a test try turning it off. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html

    Startup by RTC is strictly a BIOS feature. It has nothing to do with the OS. It simulates pressing the power button every day at a certain time. For it to work though, the PC has to be fully shut down so it can start from a cold start. If it's in a sleep state it likely won't work. The motherboard thinks its already on.

    Good stuff. IMHO, Fast Startup causes more issues than it's worth. Especially if you have an SSD. A lot of people just don't understand what it does. When turned on "Shutdown" isn't what you think it is. Anyway, now your fixed and that's all that matters.
