    Can't get into the Bios

    I have a Gateway NE56R52u that I upgrade from Windows 7 Home to Windows 10 Home and I can't get into the Bios. I've been on google all afternoon and tried everything but no luck. I have a HP desktop that I upgrade from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro and I can get into the Bios on that computer with no problem. When you turn the Gateway on it will show Gateway on the screen and then go immediately into windows startup.

    To enter the BIOs at power up you usually press a function key at the splash screen, often F2.

    By default, Windows 10 is set to use fast start up, effectively a form of hibernation. Resuming from hibernation bypasses the step at which you can press the function key, you only get that when doing a full start from cold.

    Either turn off fast start up of select Restart on the power button - this performs a full cold start. Then you should get the option to enter the bios.
