E430c Cannot enter BIOS

Hello, I just bought a lenovo thinkpad e430c with windows 8, Anyway after a failed attempt to dual boot windows 8 and ubuntu I made a system restore using a backup and a system image disk I made earlier. However, after the restore I am unable to enter the bios settings using (enter, fn + f1, fn + f2, fn + f12, f1, f2, f12) all not working.


what makes my problem much worse is that prevoiusly I was able to access bios settings using shift restart in windows 8 but after installing ubuntu as my main system and screwing up it's boot I cannot enter any operating system anymore as the boot priority is I thing fixed at the HDD.


If I can only enter the bios and change the boot priorities I can fix the ubuntu installation using live cd or even restore to windows 8.


Any help appreciated, thank you very much.

Re: E430c Cannot enter BIOS

My laptop was not coming on after the bios chip or the flash mem was damaged so I ordered dual bios chip for a lenovo thinkpad e340c, would this fully replace the two chips found on the motherboard and would it work
