Answers :

Hi there.
To get into the bios press F1 during startup when the ThinkPad logo is displayed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
Just after you turn on your PC ( or laptop ) then start hiting Keys like DELETE or F10 or F8 or F2.

\015\012Actually exactly which key you should press is dependent on which machine you are using.
\015\012
\015\012But usually its among these keys which I've described. So I hope you will get BIOS screen by htting any of these keys.
