Hi, I will assist with this issue.

Can you press & hold the power button for about 6 seconds for it to turn off, then turn it back on and check? Please let me know. Thank you,

it then returns to the aptio setup utility menu

Viet - Computer Tech :

Is there any exit option there?

yes and it doesnt work. when i use it, it the same aptio setup utility menu shows up

i need to figure out how to reboot from there... whatever i try returns me to the same page.

Viet - Computer Tech :

Check the boot/startup option

doesnt work - i can only dissable or enable. not start or execute.
