    It will definitely reset you BIOS and give you a functioning BIOS....


    This should give you an idea on how

    I'm still on warranty, by the way. Do you think they'll fix it? Even though, it's totally my fault
    Laptop Asus K75VJ.
    Essentio Recovery Software
    Notebook Recovery Software
    Thanks. I'll try this one, if nothing else works

    Iam not sure if resetting the bios is the issue that will fix OP problem ,and I don't think he has the knowledge needed to take his laptop apart and remove the battery
    I still use older computer so im not positive as to how his bios works ,but older ones have the option to set defaults in the bios itself

    well I don't think removing the battery will help .

    it sounds to me like you problem using the dvd you have is the way you created you bootable dvd ,did you use a win8 iso file to create a bootable dvd ,or did you just copy the content of a windows dvd t othe RW dvd you used

    I waited a while to post.

    I suggest buying factory recovery disks.

    Yesterday I did something to my computer & restarted & got the message, "your computer needs to be repaired.your boot options are screwed up."---- Something like that...

    My Macrium image wouldn't even work.

    So I got out my Factory Recovery disks (5) & used them. ($20 from Gateway)
    I restored 8 oem.
    I had a Microsoft account.
    I added back my 8 pro wmc.
    I went to the Store & got 8.1 pro wmc.
    I installed Macrium 5 & added the Macrium boot menu at startup.

    I restarted & chose the Macrium option to boot from.
    I inserted the full image backup I had already made & restored my computer to the state before the screwup.

    My point is: Having Factory recovery disks is good.
    They will boot when nothing else will.

    would that recover screwed up Laptop? And by that I mean completely ****ed up. The bios is as far as I'm going, nowhere else

    You would have to get the disks & try them.
    They should work unless your computer is totally hosed.
