Acessing BIOS after clicking Restart not working

I click restart in windows 8.1 then F2 + Fn and I am not able to get BIOS screen instead I get this error:

Question Value mismatch with option value!

               Re-enter Password

 

I am able to access BIOS if I press the power off/on button. I am just wondering why it doesn't work after I select restart and F2+Fn. Do I need to always shutdown the computer instead of restart to access BIOS?

 

On B50-70 it's compulsory  to simultaneously press the Function FN key as well to get into BIOS?

Re: Acessing BIOS after clicking Restart not working

Hi  lenovoman123 ,

 

Greetings. 

 

BIOS and Windows are written in different programming language. As such may hold different setting for specific keys (FN and hotkey assignments page 30) that would also be different from one brand to another and also from one model to another one with the same builder. 

 

FN + F2 can be a standard BIOS access to most laptop but is not universally true on all machines.

Generally for this model , using the Novo key (item 3 page 66) for Novo menu options is the designers recommended access.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi lenovoman123 , 

 

Greetings. 

 

The way BIOS was written, F2 + Fn is not an option ( operational key on this level) unlike in some computers so by default the command generated by those key as a mismatch.

 

Each machine have different BIOS version as it also differs from one machine to the other.

 

Regards
