How do I enter BIOS on Windows 10?

Trying to update some graphics options and need to get into BIOS. I tried the advanced startup, but it did not give me the UEFI Firmware option. Any clue?

Thank you in advance,

Alex

BIOS has nothing to do with Windows.

Hi,

You will need to hit something like ESC, DEL, F2, or similar, to enter the BIOS settings....

The Advanced Startup is for Windows stuff.... You need "Machine" stuff.....

You will need to look into the specifics for your machine as to the key to use....

You will do this while your manufacturers screen is showing... before windows starts to load....

You may even see the list of keys to select at the bottom of this screen....

Most computers I've owned required either F1, F2, or F10 during POST.  F1 is by far the most common.

the problem is explain here--- http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2012/05/22/designing-for-pcs-that-boot-faster-than-ever-before.aspx

but the reason in my case is my type of bios or my gigabyte mother board, so when  i ask them there solution was to do a hard reset, because with me just clearing CMOS was not enough, so i had to pull everything from the board ( ram, video card, all usb hardware ) plug an old PS2 key board i had, and thats it it works every time i had to do 3 times already because  windows 10 hijacking of bios is to strong and advance restart does not work with all computers

Hi,

Win 8 and above are designed to work with UEFI BIOS, but can be installed without it...

It requires a certain method to do this that can vary by manufacturer...

Maybe you are having a problem with Fast Startup in Windows...

This feature only works when you do a SHUTDOWN and then Boot.

It doesn't effect a RESTART.

To turn it off or on...

Go to Control panel...Power Options, and select Choose What the Power Buttons Do on the left.

Then select Change Settings That Are Currently Unavailable near the top center of screen...

Lower down on the window, uncheck Fast Startup.

Here's something I found at Toshiba concerning different methods of getting into BIOS at boot..

Use one of the following methods to acess the BIOS.

 

F2 key method

 

  1. Turn the computer on.
  2. If you see an invitation to press the F2 key to enter Setup, do so.
  3. The Setup (BIOS) screen will appear.
  4. If this method does not work, repeat it, but hold F2.

 

F12 key method

 

  1. Turn the computer on.
  2. If you see an invitation to press the F12 key, do so.
  3. Boot options will appear along with the ability to enter Setup.
  4. Using the arrow key, scroll down and select <Enter Setup>.
  5. Press Enter.
  6. The Setup (BIOS) screen will appear.
  7. If this method does not work, repeat it, but hold F12.

 

Toshiba Hardware utility method

 

The Toshiba Hardware utility (HWSetup) can also be used to change some of the settings if F2 or F12 does not work. This method may only work on some laptops.

 

  1. On the Start Screen type in HWSetup.
  2. In the search returns select HW Setup to open.
  3. Make changes as necessary and select "Apply."
  4. Reboot the computer if not prompted to do so.

    Method 2:

    2. Select Update and Security.

    4. Under Advanced startup, click Restart now. ... 
    5. Select Troubleshoot.
    6. Choose Advanced options.
    7. Select UEFI Firmware Settings.
    8. Click Restart to restart the system and enter UEFI (BIOS).

Fast Startup (windows 8 and up) loads the hybernate.sys file and ignores key presses upon startup apparently.

In Windows 10, there does not (for me anyway) seem to be the option to disable fast reboot using the "Choose what power buttons do" options mentioned above. That seems to be for Windows 8 only.

https://www.asus.com/us/support/FAQ/1013015/

indicates to hold down the shift key at the same time as you select restart or shutdown. Then continually hold F2 during power on and startup.

Holding F2 does nothing during startup for me, perhaps as my USB keyboard is not yet registered? (Possibly my bios/Motherboard is too old, as it is ~4 years old?)

I'm still looking for options for entering BIOS. Maybe force a hardware change by removing a device?
