I'm trying to boot into bios. What keys do I press to do this?

According to the user's guide, you press the Novo button with the system fully shut down.  Is that not working for you?

Sorry I can't find it. I have it plugged in, I searched for this Novo button but couldn't see anything on this laptop that looks like what I saw in google images. Any idea where this would be? It is plugged in currently.

I was able to get into BIOS with Fn+F2. That did it. Thanks anyways.

Glad you got it figured out.  For the record, the manual I linked says it's as shown below:

Thanks. BIOS didn't help me access a program on a USB drive, so I folllowed your instructions on finding the Novo key, and it is currently resetting to factory original state. Thanks again.
