When you turn on your computer, the first thing that happens is the BIOS loads your operating system and all of your customised settings. It is crucial for PC users to be able to access BIOS, as this is where updates and problem fixes can be made
A Windows computer’s BIOS can be accessed by pressing a key (often F10, F2, F12, F1, or DEL) determined by the computer’s manufacturer
The advanced start menu recovery settings in Windows 10 can also be used to access the BIOS if the PC’s power-on self-test starting is overly rapid
The basic input/output system (BIOS) allows you to make changes to the boot sequence, enable or disable devices, and set the time and date before the operating system has finished loading
It may take a few extra keystrokes to enter BIOS on an older PC compared to a newer one. Before you touch any buttons or change any settings, we’ll show you the ins and outs of your computer’s BIOS and how to access it.
If you are unable to enter the BIOS at startup, Fast Boot or Fast Startup may be to blame. The terms “Fast Boot” and “Fast Startup” are often used interchangeably but have different meanings
