    How to open BIOS in Windows 8


    Hi guys,
    I wanted to ask how do you open the BIOS in windows 8. It doesn't show up on the boot up screen. I want to enable the Turbo Boost on the CPU which requires getting into the BIOS. If anyone owns a Acer Aspire V3-571 and knows how to get into the BIOS please tell me. Any suggestions will help

    It really has nothing to do with Windows 8 but the BIOS itself.

    By default Win 8's fast start up masks the BIOS and goes straight to loading Win 8. If you "restart" Win 8 it should allow you to access the BIOS. Otherwise there is a setup option that will disable the fast startup in Win 8 and allow the BIOS access on power on/boot up.

    You can enter BIOS using Recovery Options.
