V130-15IKB Cannot access BIOS through F2

2019-12-29, 21:02 PM

Good evening

 

After re-installing Windows 10, I do not seem to be able to access the BIOS or Boot Menu by pressing F2/F12 at startup.

I am able to access it by pressing shift and restart, however my fear is if the M.2 SSD ever fails I will not be able to select anything from the Boot Menu.

 

The drive is also encrypted with BitLocker if that makes any difference.

 

Hopefully there is a simple fix.

 

Looking forward to hearing from someone shortly.

 

Kind regards

Since you reinstalled Windows, the BIOS key may have changed.

Try all the function keys (F1, F2, F3...), Esc and Del.

Hello

 

I have tried that.

The laptop still boots into the OS as normal, whatever key I press.

 

Even F8 does not boot into the Safe Mode boot menu.

 

The Novo Key works on the side, but it's strange that the F2/F12 keys have suddenly stopped working.

Kind regards

Well, at least you don't have to worry about you can't access safe mode anymore.
