View Full Version : [other] Most-common keys for BIOS?

November 24th, 2008, 05:48 PM
I have an old laptop that crashes and everything, so I'm going to run DBAN on it. Problem is, I have no Idea how to get into the bios to switch the boot order. Its a Sony VAIO laptop, and that's as much as I know. Also, it won't drop me into the bios for a Keyboard error, it just reboots, so that's out of the question. What are some common BIOS key-shortcuts?

Hey there,
I own an old Sony Vaio laptop, too (about 10 years old). The way I get into the bios is by continuously hitting F2 after starting up the computer. You could also try the ESC key and the other F* keys.

Good Luck! :)

On the 3 PCs I have owned, either 'Delete', 'F2' or 'F10' have done the trick.
