    Blind BIOS


    A brand new Gigabyte laptop (P57W) that cannot display the optical or USB drives making it impossible to restore from disaster. The BIOS is blind and no way to fix it. How can they sell such crap? I just installed a Toshiba $400 dollar laptop, for a friend, and it had no problems with the BIOS running Windows 10. It can do what a machine costing over $1700 cannot. Amazing, don't buy this crap. UEFI, SSD, Gigabyte no good. I will return it before it's
    too late.

    Good decision.
    No point to mess with the "fixes" which might further damage the system and lose your warranty.

    Take it back for a refund or a new replacement.

    Definitely take it back. There is something wrong with it. Let Gigabyte refurb it and sell it to someone else.
