Exit system setup 

after saving the 


F10 key can be used 

for this operation.

Pressing <Esc> does not immediately exit this menu. Select one of the options from this 

menu or <F10> from the legend bar to exit.


Exit menu

The Exit menu items allow you to load the optimal or failsafe default values for the BIOS 

items, and save or discard your changes to the BIOS items.

Exit & Save Changes

Once you are finished making your selections, choose this option from the Exit menu to 

ensure the values you selected are saved to the CMOS RAM. An onboard backup battery 

sustains the CMOS RAM so it stays on even when the PC is turned off. When you select this 

option, a confirmation window appears. Select OK to save changes and exit.

 If you attempt to exit the Setup program without saving your changes, the program 

prompts you with a message asking if you want to save your changes before exiting. Press 

<Enter> to save the  changes while exiting.

Exit & Discard Changes

Select this option only if you do not want to save the changes that you  made to the 

Setup program. If you made changes to fields other than System Date, System Time, and 

Password, the BIOS asks for a confirmation before exiting.

Discard Changes

This option allows you to discard the selections you made and restore the previously saved 

values. After selecting this option, a confirmation appears. Select OK to discard any changes 

and load the previously saved values.

Load Setup Defaults 

This option allows you to load the default values for each of the parameters on the Setup 

menus. When you select this option or if you press <F5>, a confirmation window appears. 

Select OK to load default values. Select Exit & Save Changes or make other changes 

before saving the values to the non-volatile RAM.
