How do i get into the BIOS at startup

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model/Operating System (OS) of your computer?

W10

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your computer? What troubleshooting have you tried?

March last year. Everything

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Currently my computer is unavailable because i ran msconfig and although been logging for a year and half, the current password ***** not work. Went back to the original Administrator account. I either need to run msconfig, bypass the startup or boot from a USB drive. Hence need to get into BIOS

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I ran msconfig on my computer. It rebooted needing a password ***** a year and a half ago. Not the one I have been using I first set it up. I need to get into the BIOS to set the boot device to be a flash drive and then recovery tool and boot my computer. You can’t to the best of my knowledge get on remotely without me running connect software. Unless you can tell me how to bypass the password ***** that is all I need access to the BIOS. USED TO BE REAL EASY. You just hit key at startup.
Tech Support Specialist: Moses C, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 8 months ago

Restart the system. PC screen will dim off, but it will light up again and display “Lenovo” logo.

Press F2 (Fn+F2) key when you see Lenovo” logo screen.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
