Hi guys,

I realize this is kind of a stupid question, but what key do you press to enter the Bios on the ASUS G551? I've tried esc, del, f1,f2,f8,
and f12, but none of those seemed to work

Power up the PC and right then start smashing the ESC key. Then It appears a small menu with the Boot Options and Enter Setup. There, you are on the Bios screen.

Or the F2 key.

Yes delete or F2, insure you are fully shutting down default in 8 and 10 is Hybrid shut down which is a new type of sleep. Check your settings for this and change it to shut down. I have been using Classic Shell for so long that I don't know how to tell you where the setting is.
Lets see a restart will give you a complete shut down but the restart is so quick you might try spamming it during the restart

I am running Windows 10 Pro (new to the OS and somewhat against my will, but- that's another story) on an ASUS G551jw- I was surprised to find the hoops required to access the BIOS, these are the steps taken:

1. In control panel under power options you must disable the default option of FAST START and save changes.
2. Next, Shut down the system - While pressing the SHIFT key, select SHUT DOWN.
3. After computer is completely shut down- Press and hold the F2 KEY and push the POWER button to power on.
4. Hold down the F2 KEY until you see the BIOS screen.

Hope this helps those who come along with the same question later.
