    Cannot get into the bios

    I am not able to get into the bios at all. I hit f2 and just goes to windows 8 login. I spammed the button, still nothing. It simply will not allow me to get into the bios. I tried f12, f1, I tried every Asus combination possible.

    Any help please.

    I have the Asus g75v

    Attila, try this:

    1. win + i key; choose power > restart
    2. spam esc or f2 key during boot.

    I tired this. Doesn't work.. I start spamming it even before I hit the power button.

    how about following what Mike_Lu@ASUS suggested, press and hold the f2 key, then power on; release the f2 key only when you see the BIOS screen.

    to me the restart method always works. just give it a few tries.

    i have an old model of g55vw by the way, and with an old BIOS (209).

    edit: also, i don't have w8's default fast boot option turned on.

    As you posted in your edit, @rewben, I think I saw somewhere in a previous thread that it's important to disable Win 8 fast boot to enter the BIOS.

    edit: here is the way to turn fast boot off
