BIOS or Basic Input/Output System is the most important startup program on every PC or laptop.
It is built-in core processor software that is responsible for booting up your system.
The BIOS is responsible not only for booting up your system but also for managing any attached devices including the keyboard, hard drive, mouse, video adapter, and much more.
However, each laptop and computer manufacturer is using a different key to enter BIOS.
So, if you are the owner of the Lenovo brand, your BIOS key may be different from ASUS or Acer laptops.
If you want to know how to enter BIOS on Lenovo laptop and computer, here are all things you need to know.
Lenovo Laptop BIOS Key Input
As I already mentioned, the key giving you access to BIOS is a little different for each manufacturer of the laptop, computer, or motherboard.
On Lenovo’s laptop (formerly IBM), you need to press F1 or F2 after powering your computer.
If these two keys don’t work on your system, try to press F12 or the DELETE key on your keyboard during the start-up process.

Windows 10 comes with a lot of interesting functions and one of them is the possibility to go to the BIOS from this operating system.
