The BIOS on a computer motherboard stores a variety of settings relating to the hardware and overall functioning of the computer. For example, information about the number of hard drives and type of drives mounted on the system is configured in the BIOS. In addition, you can select which drive should boot first when the computer starts up. Reset the BIOS on an ASUS P5B Deluxe motherboard to the factory defaults to reconfigure the settings as needed.
