V570 - can not access bios or boot selection menu

My computer boots, showing message "F2 for setup, F12 for boot selection", but actual pressing F2 or F12 do nothing.

I tried to connect external usb keyboard - no effect.

Sometimes it saying about keyboard stuck if i press too active but still do not go to setup screen.

 

It is able to boot from hdd but i need to boot sometimes from usb or dvd and can not access this feature.

Recent win10 installation may be related to problem but it happens with both win10 or win7 on hdd, or even with hdd removed. Without hdd it just loop on network boot attempts.

 

No passwords were installed. Is there any reset for bios memory, or can flashing bios help? And is it possible to flash bios for this model?

Re: V570 - can not access bios or boot selection menu

Had the same issue. Resolved by:

- shutting down

- ejecting AC plug

- ejecting battery

- holding power button for ~15 seconds

 

After this F2/F12 info was dislayed while booting up as usual and I was able to access BIOS/Boot menu with F buttons.

Thank you for reply.

 

I can not test this way because I solved the problem by updating bios.

Holding power button with all power removed may reset something inside.

I will try this in any similar situation.
