I can successfully boot into Windows 8 on my laptop but I can no longer boot into my BIOS for some reason. I used to be able to just fine but now for some reason I can't! I have a HP DM4-3099se laptop. Here is the website where I can get all of my drivers and other software for it: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4132&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=5254512

When you power on, quickly tap the F10 key. Does this work?

 

If not power down, hold the F10 key and press the power button.

That did not work either.

Uplug the power adapter if connected, remove the battery. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Replace the battery and try again.

 

Edit: I found something on HP's site:

 

You must press ESC immediately after boot, then F10 for the BIOS menu

No that did not work either. It is showing the same thing. It is just showing a black screen for maybe 4 seconds and than it is booting into Windows 8

You can try F2 for the BIOS key but if that does not work, I am out of ideas. Hopefully somebody else on the board can come up with some ideas.

Thanks but for some reason I was able to boot into my bios before and now for some reason I can't. In the link I provided in the thread starter post , I mentioned a web site that had links to the drivers and other stuff on my laptop. There is a bios option there too

One other thing to try. If you have access to the CMOS battery, Remove the power adapter if connected, then the laptop battery. Remove the CMOS battery. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Replace the CMOS battery. Then replace the laptop battery and plug the power adapter.
