How to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup
Computers manufactured in the last few years allow you to enter the BIOS setup using one of the five keys shown below during the boot process.
F2 *
F10 **

Note: F1, F2, and F10 are all function keys on the top of the keyboard.

* If pressing F2 opens a diagnostics tool, your setup key is likely F10

** F10 is also used for the boot menu. If F10 opens a boot menu, your setup key is likely F2.

Hi @a454545

Entering bios setup is depend on your bios manufacture. I agree with @ha14.

But if you are using modern operating system like windows 10 your bios access will be locked by operating system. You have to enable the same.

from Total shutoff, power on the computer while holding down the F1 key , or sometimes the F2 key. If you still get the main windows screen, you need to power off and try again
