    I was upgrading my hdd to an ssd on my Asus TP300l and I have put the new ssd into the computer, but when I boot up the computer, it seems to be stuck in Aptio setup utility and I have read a few instructions online on how to get out of the setup utility but they aren't working. Please help as soon as possible

    You could try this:
    1. Select the Boot menu in the Aptio setup utility, select 'Launch CSM' and change to enable.
    2. Select the Security menu n the Aptio setup utility, select 'secure Boot Control' and change to disable.
    3. Select Save & Exit and press 'yes'.
    4. Hold down the power button until the unit switches power off completely.
    5. Switch back on and continually press the F9 button for about ten seconds; this should now allow the unit to boot up into the Windows Recovery menu.
    6. Select 'Advanced Start Up' and wait until the recovery menu appears.
    7. Select ' Advanced Options'.
    8. Select 'System Restore' and select a date prior to when the problem occurred.

    If it says:
    Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key
    Then: it could be incorrect boot order, partition not set as active, or drive failure

    Checking boot order:
    a. Restart your computer
    b. Access your BIOS menu.
    c. Go to the Boot tab.
    d. Change the boot order so that your computer’s HDD is listed first.
    e. Save the settings.
    f. Restart your computer.

    What OS are you using? You mentioned you were upgrading your HDD to an SSD. Did you already complete the upgrade by cloning the drive or are you planing on performing a clean install of Windows? has the drive been initialized?
