Enter BIOS on Lenovo

The newest Lenovo laptops have a dedicated button that allows you to launch the BIOS on reboot. It is located near the power button and is marked with an icon with an arrow. The exception is the Ideapad 100 or 110 laptop and similar state employees from this line, since they have this button on the left side. As a rule, if there is one on the case, then it should be used to enter the BIOS. After you click on it, a special menu will appear where you need to select “BIOS Setup”.

If for some reason this button is not on the laptop case, then use these keys and their combinations for models of different lines and series:

However, some laptops have different entry keys than those listed above. In this case, you will have to use all keys. from F2 to F12 or Delete. Sometimes they can be combined with Shift or Fn. Which key / combination you need to use depends on many parameters. laptop model, serial modification, equipment, etc.

The required key can be found in the documentation for the laptop or on the official Lenovo website. driving in your model in the search and finding basic technical information for it.

It is worth remembering that the most common BIOS keys on almost all devices are F2, F8, Delete, and the rarest ones are F4, F5, F10, F11, F12, Esc. During the reboot, you can try pressing several keys (not simultaneously!). It also happens that when loading on the screen, the inscription with the following m “Please use (required key) to enter setup” is briefly displayed, use this key to enter.

Entering the BIOS on Lenovo laptops is quite simple, even if you didn’t succeed on the first try, then most likely you will do it on the second. All “wrong” keys are ignored by the laptop, so you do not risk your mistake to disrupt something in its work.

Thank the author, share the article on social networks.

Lenovo is one of the most popular laptop manufacturers. When, I must tell you (from personal experience), laptops are not bad enough not reliable. Some models of these laptops do not have one feature. an unusual entry into the BIOS (and you often need to go there, nettle, to reinstall the Operating System).

In this relatively short article, I would like to consider these features of the entrance

Entering BIOS on a Lenovo laptop (step by step)

1) Usually, to enter the BIOS on Lenovo laptops (on most models), it is enough to press the F2 button when it is turned on (otherwise FnF2).

However, some models may not react at all to all these presses (nettles Lenovo Z50, Lenovo G50, and sell the whole selection: g505, v580c, b50, b560, b590, g50, g500, g505s, g570, g570e, g580, g700, z500, z580 may not respond to all these keys)

5) The above models on the side panel (usually next to the power cable) have a special button (nettles, model Lenovo G50, see Fig. 5).

To come in in the BIOS you need to: turn off the laptop, and at the end press this button (an arrow is usually drawn on its surface, although I admit that on some models the arrow may not even be).

When, an important point. Not every individual Lenovo laptop model has this service button on the side. Nettle, on a laptop Lenovo G480. this button next to the power button of the laptop (see Fig. 2.7.1).

3) If what remains to be done by our client was done correctly, then the laptop should turn on, a service menu with four items will appear on the screen (see Fig. 3):

To enter BIOS. select BIOS Setup (settings not BIOS settings).

4) Next, the most common BIOS menu should appear. Then you can configure the BIOS in the same way as other laptop models (the settings are almost identical).

When, you need someone: in fig. Four shows the settings of the BOOT section of the Lenovo G480 laptop for installing the OS 7 there:

  • Boot Mode: [Legacy Support]
  • Boot Priority: [Legacy First]
  • USB Boot: [Enabled]
  • Boot Device Priority: PLDS DVD RW (this is a drive with an Operating System 7 boot disk installed there, be careful that it is the first one in the list), Internal HDD

An ordinary user rarely needs to enter the BIOS, but if, for example, you need to update Windows or make any specific settings, then you will have to enter it. This process in Lenovo laptops may differ depending on the model and release date.

Lenovo ideapad 100 how to enter BIOS.

For us Lenovo IdeaPad 100. I bought this laptop myself and faced the fact that it was impossible to enter the BIOS.

After changing all the settings, do not forget to save them. To do this, in the EXIT section, select “Save and exit”. After restarting the laptop, the installation of Windows 7 should start

5) There are certain laptop models, such as Lenovo b590 and v580c, where you may need the F12 key to enter the BIOS. Holding this key right after turning on the laptop. you can get into Quick Boot (quick menu). where you can easily change the boot order of various devices (HDD, CD-Rom, USB).

6) And the F1 key is used quite rarely. You may need it if you are using a Lenovo b590 laptop. The key must be pressed and held after turning on the device. The BIOS menu itself differs little from the standard.

The manufacturer recommends that you charge the laptop battery sufficiently before entering the BIOS. If during the process of setting and setting parameters in the BIOS, the device is abnormally turned off (due to lack of power). there may be problems in the further operation of the laptop.

To be honest, I’m not ready to comment on the last recommendation: I have never experienced problems when turning off a PC when I was in the BIOS settings

37 comments on “How to enter BIOS on a Lenovo laptop”

everything is clear, but I want to add. Lenovo Z500 has a button, but there are no pointers

On Lenovo v580c (UEFI BIOS v. H1ET73WW, version 1.16. If you erased the system. Windows and installed any other system on top of a clean system, then there is a problem entering the BIOS (it is impossible to enter, enter), I immediately say that I tried all the combinations key, zero emotion.
It turns out there is a way to solve this problem and everything will work like a watch.
Disconnect the laptop from the network, disconnect the battery, open the cover on the back of the beech and remove the battery (round), wait fifteen minutes. Subsequently, the BIOS (hereinafter referred to as BIOS) is reset. Put everything into place…. Voila, when you turn it on, a couple of errors will come out. they say the time is not set correctly and the PC will automatically enter the BIOS.
In BIOS, in the “Startup” tab, in the item with the “UEFI / Legacy boot” setting, there are three parameters (Both, UEFI Only, Legacy Only), you must put “Both”. There is one fad next to it, it is called “UEFI / Legacy Boot Priority”, there should be “Legacy”.
Next, you need to save and reload everything. Go to the “First Restart” tab and click “Exit Saving Changes”
That’s all.
Turning on BIOS: we pressed the laptop power button and immediately simultaneously hold down the Esc, F1, Delete buttons
A window will open. “Startup Interrupt Meny”, release these above-mentioned three keys at once, press F1 and enter the BIOS !

EX, I need to contact you, if you are here, write how, this is about your comment above.

Lenovo 100. There are no recovery buttons (with an arrow) at all. There is a small hole (with the same arrow) located next to the power connector. The button is inside the hole, pressed with a needle or a paper clip. It’s quite difficult to find if you don’t know what to look for))))

With some difficulty I found the button. But where in BIOS to switch USB 3.0 to USB 2.0? Some kind of primitive BIOS and very limited even on the menu.

Didn’t understand what to switch? You have a blue USB port on your case. it’s 3.0

Hello. Help reset BIOS password (lenovo G505s). I tried almost everything, from removing the battery to clamping the contacts on the board. nothing helps, can you tell me something? Thanks in advance.

Good day. Max, I had an article: https://pcpro100.info/kak-sbrosit-BIOS/
Probably, you need to go to the service before you do more things.

The fact is that the laptop has not been used for a long time, and no one remembers the password. By the way, about the recovery button. the BIOS is knocked out only when the hard drive is removed and anyway, when you go to BIOS Setup (BIOS settings), it asks for a password.

Recently, there are a lot of questions with the BIOS regarding the brand of Lenovo laptops. The fact is that on laptops of this brand (on some models) there is a rather non-standard input into the BIOS (because of this, sometimes even those users who have this is not the first laptop fall into a stupor).

In general, you may need to change the BIOS settings for a variety of reasons. For example, if you need to install Windows, to get information about the hard drive, the serial number of the laptop, turn on / off a device (say, a sound card or function buttons).

In this article, I will consider several possible options for entering the BIOS on laptops of this brand. I think the article will be useful to all users who have encountered this problem.

BIOS Login Methods [Lenovo]

1) Standard hotkeys for login

On the vast majority of laptops of this brand. the F2 or F1 button should act (you need to press immediately after turning on the laptop. Model range: ThinkPad, IdeaPad, 3000 Series, ThinkCentre, ThinkStation).

On some models. may require pressing the FnF2 button combination (for example, in the G50).

Addition. The F12 key (FnF12. enter the Boot Menu) is very rare. to enter the BIOS (Lenovo model b590). I also recommend trying.

If you can’t enter this way, read the following recommendations.

Note. This article will tell you more about the classic BIOS entry: https://ocomp.info/kak-voyti-v-BIOS.html#BIOS

2) Dedicated recovery button “with an arrow”

Some Lenovo notebook models have special buttons on the device to enter the BIOS. For example, we are talking about these: g505, v580c, b50, b560, g50, g500, g505s, g570, g570e, g580, g700, z500, z580, Z50, B70 and others.

When turned on, they may not react at all to your pressing of the F2 buttons. To enter the BIOS, in this case, you need to use the special Recovery button (with an arrow). You need to press it instead of the power button (i.e. when the laptop is turned off).

The Recovery button is located on the body of the device, next to the power button (on some models this button is on the side).

If you have a blue ThinkVantage button on the device. then you need to press it right after turning on the laptop. while the greeting is still on and the brand of the device manufacturer is displayed (see photo below).

Manufacturers, apparently, are trying to eliminate accidental button presses. all the same, the vast majority of users have to enter BIOS very rarely.

1) Some laptop models do not allow entering the BIOS if it is running on battery power. I can’t say that this is a 100% glitch. but the setting is very controversial. To check for sure. connect the device to the network and try to enter the BIOS using the methods described above.

2) The Lenovo v580c model sometimes has a very unpleasant glitch: if you cleaned the disk and installed a new Windows, the BIOS entry buttons will stop working for you.

To enter the BIOS again (instructions for advanced users!). turn off the laptop, then unplug it, remove the battery. Next, remove the cover and take out the small battery from the mat. boards. After 5-10 minutes. assemble the device.

When enabled, the BIOS will be loaded automatically to set the basic parameters.

READ  Installing Windows on a lenovo ideapad laptop

I want to tell you about, as it seems to me, not quite the correct policy of Lenovo Corporation. A friend asked him to install Win 7 on his newly purchased Lenovo B50-30 laptop. The model is quite budgetary and had 2 gigabytes of RAM on board, so there was no question of installing Win 8. I inserted a multiboot USB flash drive and began to look for how to load a quick boot menu. It turns out that in this model this can be done in two ways. The first way is when you enable pressing the FnF12 keyboard shortcuts (why not just do F12). The second way is to press the small button on the right side panel (in early models it was near the power key, which was much more convenient).

Having tried this action several more times, changing the USB flash drive to a multi-boot screw, it was not crowned with success. Then I decided to install the system from disk, but got the same result.

Having tried a couple of options found in the search engine (even options for updating the BIOS were offered, which is not at all good for an ordinary user), nevertheless, one of them turned out to be working. This option helped me:

In the last BIOS menu in the last line of OS optimized Default, change the value in it from Win8 64 bit to Other OS. 2. Be sure to do Load Default Setting. 3. We save the changes in this order. 4. Install Win 7 x64 / x86 without BSOD.
