Cannot enter BIOS - fast startup is off

Hi

 

I have a 310-15IKB Laptop (ideapad). When I start my laptop after turning it off, I don't get prompted to enter the BIOS. I assume this has something to do with the laptop not fully shutting down but I've already turned off fast startup, held shift while  clicking shutdown, tried shutting down from safe mode, made sure no usb devices were connected. What do?

 

Thanks

Hi planpony69,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

You can try pressing FN + F2 on a restart, while holding down the FN key , keep tapping F2.

Another way to try is to shut down the laptop and use the Novo key (item8 page 7 here on the users manual) to power on the machine.

Update us how it goes.
