Last December my old system died and I replaced it with a new Lenovo system, as noted in my sig. Probably its biggest advantage over the old one, aside from graduation from XP to 7 and increased speed from the dual-core CPU and 64-bit operation, is that it uses an external power supply and therefore has a much smaller casing (around 2 x 6 x 8 inches) plus less problem with heat. The only problem is that it displays the Lenovo logo rather than the standard POST screen when starting up, and came with virtually no literature other than standard safety warnings. Can someone who uses a Lenovo, or at least is familiar with it, please tell me how to access (a) BIOS settings and (b) boot options, such as safe mode? I'd probably have little or no use for the former other than resetting boot-source priorities in case I ever have to boot from a rescue "disk" on my flash drive. Neither Del nor Esc works for either purpose. Many thanks in advance.
