Change BIOS boot screen

Can anyone help me with the sequence of keystrokes (right arrow, down arrow, enter, etc) to change the BIOS output screen on a T530 ?.

Or perhaps there's a powershell command that would do it ?.  Need to access my BIOS but the laptop screen output is dead (see other post "T530 screen died") and the BIOS is set to display on it. Need to somehow change the BIOS to display on an external monitor without being able to see the BIOS !. Smiley Frustrated

Re: Change BIOS boot screen

You can do it remotely via WMI using the script. Or use Lenovo developers' tool with UI

Re: Change BIOS boot screen

Thank you x220forme ! Followed the link and downloaded and ran the BIOS config tool via GUI. Now have BIOS on external display Smiley Happy Now I just need to figure out the original issue of the dead built-in display!. Thanks again. Legend.
