Hello Geeks, my Lenovo G50-30's screen is damaged so I do everything using the external monitor. Just recently I realized if I try to enter the bios, the external monitor remains blank, please help me view the bios settings on the same external monitor. Thank you

This has been discussed before. When using an external monitor you cannot access the bios as the graphics are loading after BIOS. When booting you do not see the Lenovo logo, only the Windows starting screen, correct?

Your Welcome,

Unfortunately the only way to access BIOS is to repair your laptop screen. I also ran into this problem on an old laptop  with no screen attached to an external monitor.
