How to enter BIOS on a Lenovo laptop - 5 easy ways

Monoblocks occupy a special place among gadgets from the manufacturer Lenovo. Externally, the monoblock differs from the usual monitor only in thickness. In other words, this device is very similar to a monitor, but in fact it is a computer in its own right.

A monoblock helps save space, because you don’t need to allocate space for the system unit. There are virtually no wires, and if you use a wireless keyboard and mouse, you can quickly move your computer from one place to another. One of the main disadvantages of such computers is their high price (for example, the cheapest Lenovo monoblock costs about 30 thousand rubles).

How to enter Bios on an all-in-one PC?

As mentioned above, a monoblock is a full-fledged computer, so a component such as BIOS must be present in it. In order to enter the BIOS on an all-in-one, you need to use the F1, F2, Delete buttons during the system boot process.

Entering Bios on an all-in-one PC is not difficult, you just need to use the correct key.

Lenovo is on the list of the largest companies in the world that produce computers. And since the demand for the products of this company is growing, questions about the proper operation and operation of Lenovo equipment are becoming more and more pressing for users. And for those who decide to reinstall Windows, at the very beginning of the process the question arises: how to enter the BIOS in Lenovo?

First, it’s worth understanding what a BIOS is and what it comes with. So, BIOS on Lenovo is a special microscopic program that ensures correct and stable interaction between all components of the PC and the OS and allows you to customize it. And the BIOS setting is a standard PC setting that helps the system calculate the functions that should be activated and how they should be loaded. BIOS is available on any computer, be it Lenovo B560, Lenovo S21 or M5400.

Today, several different versions of Bios have been created, which differ slightly in appearance, but as far as functions are concerned, everything is identical. Each version is used to initially set up the computer and test it. BIOS functionality includes:

  • Setting date and time;
  • Selecting the boot sector – the device from which the operating system will be installed or loaded;
  • Checking system components, including checking the health of RAM and hard drives;
  • Connecting password protection on your laptop to protect personal data.

How to enter BIOS

On different Lenovo models, the methods for entering Bios on a laptop may differ. First, try the standard login method - when you start your personal computer, you need to press the F2 button on the keyboard, sometimes holding down the Fn key first. Next, the PC settings menu will be called up.

But this method does not always work. For some Lenovo models, the BIOS does not load when you press F2 or Fn+F2 - for example, Lenovo Legion Y520, Lenovo G70, G50-30 or G500. If you tried to enter bios using the method described above and it did not work, the following instructions are for you:

  1. There should be a special small key with a curved arrow on the side of the laptop (where the charging socket is usually located) or right next to the power button. It's called Novo Button, One Key Recovery or One Key Rescue System. You need to turn off the laptop and click on it.
  2. If you pressed the correct button, the laptop will start, and on the screen you will see that we go to a special start menu:

  • Normal Startup (normal download);
  • Bios Setup (parameters);
  • System Recovery (system recovery);
  • Boot Menu (boot menu).
  1. As you most likely guessed, to enter the BIOS on Lenovo, you need to go to the BiosSetup item. After you select it, you will see that the laptop has entered the BIOS and you can configure it as you wish.

Keyboard shortcuts

Fortunately, Lenovo has established a single key combination for almost all of its laptop models: Fn + F2 , where Fn is a special “function” button, usually located in the lower left corner.

Much less often, in order to enter the BIOS, you have to use another Fn + F1 or simply press the Delete (Del) key.

In general, the user's actions come down to two steps:

  • Open the Start menu and, by clicking on the virtual power button, select one of the options - shutdown or restart.
  • Turning on your Lenovo laptop again or waiting for it to start after a reboot and using one of the key combinations listed above to enter the BIOS is no more difficult than understanding the benefits of UEFI Boot.

If everything is done correctly, the user will see the BIOS menu in front of him. Now he can configure the BIOS, set the operating system boot order and perform other required manipulations - if necessary, after entering the password.

Tip: if your Lenovo laptop starts up too quickly or you can’t enter the BIOS after rebooting, it makes sense to turn it off using a physical button by pressing and holding it for a few seconds.

Now, after giving the Lenovo laptop a little rest, you should start it again - and do not forget to use one of the combinations listed above in time to enter the BIOS.

Owners of Lenovo laptops from the ThinkPad line, as well as some other models, can enter the BIOS without using key combinations - just use the special NOVO button, located next to the power button or on the end of the device.

After turning off your Lenovo laptop, press and hold NOVO for a few seconds; By selecting the BIOS Setup item in the window that appears, the user can finally enter the BIOS and continue working in the basic input/output system.

Tip: sometimes, instead of the NOVO button, there is a special hole on the device body, near which the same icon is located. In this case, you can open the BIOS menu by inserting a special paper clip for an iPhone or smartphone or a regular paper clip into the connector and lightly pressing the contact for two to three seconds.

Two secrets for launching Bios

But if you still haven’t been able to start the BIOS using one of the methods described above, and the Windows 8.1 or higher operating system is installed on your laptop, we’ll tell you two startup secrets.

  • You need to turn on your PC. With the computer running on the desktop, drag the mouse pointer to the lower right corner of the desktop (call up the side menu).
  • A menu opens for us where we select “Options” - “Update and Recovery” - “Recovery”.
  • Here, in the “Special boot options” section, click on the “Restart now” button.
  • Next, a blue screen with tiles will open. Open the “Diagnostics” tile, clicking on which will take you to additional options.
  • You need to open the “UEFI Firmware Settings” item and click the “Reboot” button. Ready! You are in BIOS!

Second secret. Many Win 8.1 users make a mistake when trying to enter Bios. Everyone knows how to get into the BIOS - you need to press a certain button on the keyboard. To do this, the user clicks on “Shutdown”, waits until the laptop turns off, and then presses the button to enter the Bios, but the computer starts as before - the OS is loading.

The whole problem is that the Windows 8.1 operating system initially works with a quick startup function, which is based on sleep mode - enter the BIOS without turning off the PC, but rebooting it.

Some useful tips:

  • After entering Bios, go to various settings for system parameters and boot in the BIOS itself. Be very careful and careful, and it’s better not to touch something you don’t know, as there is a risk of doing something wrong and completely losing your computer. And after making all the changes, go to the “Exit” section and select “Save & exit”. After this, the laptop will reboot, and when it starts again, all the settings that you previously had to set will be taken into account.
  • If the above methods for entering the BIOS on a Lenovo laptop do not work, try pressing and holding the F12 key when starting the device until the BIOS starts - this method works on some Lenovo models.
  • Very rarely, but it still happens - in some models the F1 key works (you need to press it several times until the laptop turns on).
  • Manufacturers recommend configuring PC settings in Bios only with a fully charged laptop battery, since if during the setup process your laptop turns off due to being discharged, this will most likely cause some system problems in the future.
  • Before exiting the BIOS, be sure to save all changes so as not to go astray.

Remember that setting up Bios is a very serious action that requires maximum understanding of the process and great attention to detail. You should be aware that if configured incorrectly, some system components may not work correctly, which brings additional operational difficulties. And if you doubt that you know how to do it correctly, it is better to call qualified specialists, this will save money, time, and nerves. We hope that this article helped you understand how to enter Bios.

BIOS is a very important computer program written on the motherboard chip. It allows the user to change software and system settings, making them low-level, provides assistance in repairs, and acts as a regulator in the operation of the motherboard. The first thing the technician does when a computer or laptop breaks down is to enter the BIOS. In 80% of a hundred, it is from there that he receives information about the causes of the system malfunction.

Common login methods on a Lenovo laptop

The most common and well-known way to enter the BIOS is to press the Delete key on the keyboard. However, some computer and laptop manufacturers, including Lenovo, have defined other login methods for their systems.

When choosing a Lenovo manufacturer when purchasing, you must remember that the computer equipment of this company is produced, as a rule, with an already installed operating system. If you want to reinstall software on your laptop, you may encounter a problem: almost all modern models ignore the operating system you want, trying to return the computer to the original one. This is why you will need the ability to enter the BIOS yourself to get around this problem.

Depending on the Lenovo model, you can enter the BIOS in several ways:

  • press and hold the F1 or F2 keys;
  • press the DELETE button;
  • press the Novo Button.

a Novo Button on their panel or side edge . Finding it is not difficult. The manufacturer has highlighted it with a corresponding design - a curved arrow.

If you need to get into the BIOS on a Lenovo laptop, then instead of the power button you need to press Novo Button. When booting, the system will enter the BIOS.

Please note that the BIOS will not appear on the monitor immediately. To enter the program, you need to perform one more step - find in the “ Novo Button ” menu the option to boot the laptop “ BIOS Setup ”, which is selected with the mouse button.
After making your selection, press the Enter key on your keyboard. You are logged into the software.

What is the NOVO button?

All Lenovo Idea series laptops have a special small button (or a hole for a paper clip, like on smartphones) “NOVO”, indicated by a reverse arrow resembling an inverted “U” Novo button icon.

Pressing this button launches a special menu that allows you to enter BIOS settings, launch Lenovo OneKey Recovery, or choose to boot from another device. Typically, the “NOVO” button is located on the front panel of the laptop, next to the power button, but on some models it may be located at the end of the case, as is the case with the Lenovo IdeaPad 110.

On the official Lenovo support website, all this information is available, both in the general section about BIOS (UEFI), and if you use the search for the specific model of interest.

I will provide another link from the official Lenovo website about the recommended methods of entering the BIOS for IdeaPad series laptops

So, to get into the BIOS on the Lenovo IdeaPad 110, you should use a paper clip, pressing its end into the hole marked with the “NOVO” icon until it clicks. The laptop, of course, must be turned off (we don’t touch the laptop’s power button; it will turn on on its own when you press the “NOVO” button).

Button on the end of the case. I call these laptops one-button.

NO ONE. In general, not a single user has used this crap.

Square Circle, this was not invented by me, but by the manufacturer. I believe that Lenovo engineers are not the most stupid and the company’s products are deservedly popular. And I see everything you have is “junk”, it’s even interesting to know which brand does not fall under this definition.

System administrators don’t like the new button because any user, if Windows is accidentally demolished by virus blockers, will restore everything to factory settings in ten minutes completely free of charge, and the recovery section cannot be demolished by anything; this feature is only available from Lenovo

I demolished this section and installed the system as I need it on the laptop of this company. He didn't even tweet.

If I had known that he was indestructible, it probably wouldn’t have worked out.
