Question about Lenovo ThinkPad Computers & Internet
I am unable to access the bios and I want to load a different OS onto this machine - I can't boot to the DVD because I can't get to the BIOS and the DVD is currently locked out in the BIOS

Near the power button there is a smaller button. Instead of power press this button and a menu will appear. You just have to choose BIOS Setup or Boot menu if you just want to change the boot order.

Press Fn +F1. This will get you in the boot menu and Fn+F12 for the BIOS.

Hi, What I would best sugget you if you this kind of issue is to restore your system to its original settings, just look for the small button just beside the power button on your keyboard, it has an arching arrow logo, that key is what we called One Key Recovery that would restore your system to its original factory settings. but just a hint it would also delete everything on your computer so consider bucking up every important files taht you have before proceeding with the recovery. also make sure that the ac adapter is plugin before you press the one key recovery button then it will give the options to choose from, just choose one key recovey then proceed with the factory default recovery, thats it it would now proceed with the system factory default restoration. If you still need some clarifications regarding this issue you could also call the tech support hotline of lenovo

SOURCE: Unable to get into BIOS SETUP
On most systems, the key or key combination to press to enter the BIOS program is displayed on the screen when the system boots up, at the time when the BIOS is ready to enter Setup.
take a look at some default keys:-
