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 :)
