Hello and welcome,

 

The following is from the user's guide (v2 for Windows 8) page 29:  http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_z380z480z485z580z585_ug_2nd_edition_jun_2012_english.pdf

 

How can I start the BIOS setup utility?
To start the BIOS setup utility:
1 Shut down the computer.
2 Press the Novo button and then select BIOS Setup.

 

Does that work for you?

few ways to access to bios in z580

1-easy way is using nova button check out the below pics

2- at the start up (booting) hold F2

3- if computer can boot ok , hold shift  and restart the computer

if none of them would works (which did not for me) there is chance the corrupted boot manger, a year a go there wasn't any bios update available for z580 i had to  send my laptop to lenovo, they changed the motherboard for me under warranty work , same thing happen again after a year   ,i tried all the tricks but no luck ( that mean if hard drive dies you have to  find another lenovo laptop to clone the drive ,because laptop wont boot from anything except internal hard drive ) the good thing there is bios update which helped me to fix the my bios access problem .
