Aptio Setup Utility is a common name among ASUS laptops and their cards. Many users have asked questions about it, so we will inform you about its features and some problems in this article.

What is the Aptio Setup Utility?

A configuration utility is installed on each computer to access the computer’s BIOS. The Basic Input Output System (BIOS) is responsible for storing configurations essential for communication between devices in the system. The BIOS cannot be called and used without a configuration utility. Each computer has its own BIOS and configuration utility, depending on the type of hardware used.

UEFI is a similar term, but it is an improved version of the BIOS Legacy mode and offers more features. Like the BIOS, it also requires a configuration utility to access it. The Aptio configuration utility is a name for the configuration utility developed by American Megatrends and delivered with almost all ASUS computers. The utility can be invoked during computer startup and is an excellent way to customize communication between system devices.
