 I have a Gateway NE66R31U lap top which has already don the 10 upgrade. I am looking for info on about how to access BIOS. So far the only way I have been able to do this is to remove the hard drive. If any one has any special tricks I would be very grateful.   Don

Tried the link above with no luck. The computer came with windows 8 and had been upgraded to 10. This apparently disables normal bios access.  I found a way into bios after booting into windows 10. Unfortunately I didn't document this If I remember properly it was through settings / troubleshooting.  Once I accessed bios I got all involved in dual booting Linux cinnamon and exploring that. Forgot all about this post so now I'm no help. I have solved my problem. If I can backtrack and figure out how I will update here.  Don

From what I can find, you should be able to get into the BIOS settings by tapping the F2 key immediately after powering on the computer.

 

Don't so just one tap, do a series of them and at a fairly fast rate.

 

You should hear a beep that tells you that you are entering the BIOS.

 

If you aren't successful, power off and try again.

My experience with Win10 machines is that it is hard to access the bios, especially if it is running a SSD drive.  Timing is everything.
