Dell Inspiron 660, No BIOS OPTIONS

Hello, just purchased a dell inspiron 660, it's great, and it boots up really fast, it's got an i5! I love it! Only problem is there are no bios options showing on startup. (Just the dell logo, and a rotating wheel, then it goes straight to the login screen)

I tap f2, and f12, but nothing happens, it just continues on to the login screen.

Maybe it's not a major problem but I always like to see if there are options I can change in the bios.

Thank you for the reply. I did this exactly, still the same thing. I held f2, and I tapped f2 rapidly. It proceeded to boot as normal. There is no message saying press f2. Just the dell logo and a spinning wheel. It was like this when I first got it.

Everything works as expected again, and it boots superfast.

In older Dell models, you might need to press either "Delete," "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Enter," "Fn" + "F1," or "Fn" + "Esc."

With the computer turned off hold down f2 and start the computer. Keep holding f2.
If this does not work use the above posted method to get into the bios through Windows then find and disable fast boot. Fast boot bypasses the usual bios option screens.
