The BIOS of a Windows PC is where fundamental configuration of the PC are done. From the BIOS, you can set how the PC is booted, the Windows PC Boot order, the date and time, which hardware components are enabled and which are not. These and other settings alike can be done from the BIOS which is also referred to as SETUP.

Meanwhile, the BIOS is also simply reffered to as SETUP. Entering the BIOS of a Windows PC involves pressing of a KEY or combination of some keys.
However, the exact key or combination of keys (to be pressed) to enter BIOS or SETUP depends on your hardware.

In this article, I have gathered key(s) to enter BIOS or SETUP on various brands of PC. With this list, you should be able to enter SETUP or BIOS on most PC if you press the key(s) at the right moment.

If you press the key at the right moment I say. That's right. Now, what's the right moment to hit the key(s) to enter BIOS?

THE RIGHT MOMENT TO ENTER THE BIOS

Since the BIOS only initializes your PC and that which takes only few seconds, the right moment to enter the BIOS is also within that few seconds while the BIOS is still initializing the PC. This moment is between the time when the PC is powered up and before the OS is lunched which is done by the boot loader.

TO ENTER BIOS OR SETUP

Therefore, to enter the BIOS on your PC, you need to hit the key(s) for entering the BIOS or SETUP (specifically) for your hardware or brand while the BIOS is still initializing.

Some PCs might display a message at this time. The message sometimes reads as thus; "Press <DEL> to Enter Setup" or something similar. When this happens, you know that's the right time to hit the right key.

Meanwhile, if no message is displayed, the right moment to enter the BIOS or SETUP is between the moment when manufacturer logo is displayed and before the Operating System starts booting.

TIDBITTo ensure that you do not miss the moment for entering the BIOS or SETUP, you should press and hold the key(s) for entering the BIOS while you press the Power Button. Keep holding the key until the BIOS comes up.

THE RIGHT HOT KEY(S) TO ENTER BIOS OR SETUP FOR COMMON HARDWARE AND BRANDS

To make it easier for you, I have gathered the common key(s) to enter BIOS or SETUP for most hardware and PC brands here.

Common keys to enter the BIOS are F1, F2, F9, F10, F12, DEL, ESC, as well as key combinations like CTRL + ALT + ESC or CTRL + ALT + DEL, though the later are commonly used on older machines.
Also, note that a key like F12, F10 and F9 might actually launch something else, like the boot menu. The exact key or key combination depends on your computer manufacturer and model.

Refer to the list below to check for the right key or key combination to enter BIOS or SETUP for your PC.

ACER
The most common keys to enter SETUP on Acer hardware are F2 and Delete.

On older computers, try F1 or the key combination CTRL+ALT+ESC.

ASUS
The most common key to enter BIOS or SETUP is F2.

Depending on your model, it might also be the Delete or Insert key, and sometimes, F10.

DELL
On a newer Dell computer, try the F2 key when the Dell logo appears.

Alternatively, try F1, Delete, F12, or even F3.

Older DELL computers might use CTRL+ALT+ENTER or Delete or Fn+ESC or Fn+F1.

HP
HP machines commonly use F10 and ESC to enter BIOS or SETUP.

On some HP computers F1, F2, F6, or F11 will open the gates to the BIOS.

On HP Tablet PCs use F10 or F12 to enter Setup.

LENOVO
F1 or F2 key should get you into the BIOS.

For older Lenovo machine, use either of these key combinations CTRL+ALT+F3 or CTRL+ALT+INS or Fn+F1.

SONY
On a Sony VAIO, F2 or F3 will get you into the SETUP or BIOS. You may also try F1.

Alternatively, if your SONY VAIO has an ASSIST key, press and hold the ASSIST while you power on the laptop. This also works if your Sony VAIO came with Windows 8.

TOSHIBA
Use F2 key to enter BIOS. F1 and ESC also work for some Toshiba PC.

For Toshiba Equium F12 will enter the BIOS.

FUJITSU
For Fujitsu PCs, F12 will take you to the BIOS.

Others
For other PC not listed here, consult the manual or visit the manufacturer website. The list here shows more comprehensive list as well.


HOW TO ENTER SETUP OR BIOS ON WINDOWS 8

Although, the list above work with Windows PCs as well, Windows 8 has slightly different methods for entering the BIOS. In the case that something is not right, open the Charms bar, by pressing the key combination Win+C, click the Settings icon,  and select Change PC settings in the bottom right.

Within PC Settings, navigate to the General tab and click Restart now under the Advanced startup header.

In Windows 8.1, the steps are slightly different. Within PC Settings, navigate to the Update and Recovery tab, then go to Recovery, and finally click Restart under Advanced startup.

Alternatively, you may press and hold the Shift Button while you press the Restart in the Shut Down menu.

The computer will restart into boot options, which include the UEFI BIOS. From there select Troubleshoot and from Advanced options screen, select UEFI Firmware 
Settings.
