Sure read the manual for your computer, search for the bios name, you will find it under the desktop when it loads Mint, if you look at the system information
--hardware profiling, there is a speed test to compare your machine, as well as various info in regards to the BIOS and devices being used
I don't know if Dmesg in a console will show the BIOS name (AWARD etc..)
--when you find the name or see it on your boot, the numbers appear on the bottom of the screen, you can searcfh for that name (name number) on the internet to find the infor for your BIOS
[list]There are some genweral defaults for access to any BIOS, usuallly the DEL, ESC keys or one of the F(Funtion keyes) F!, F10 and so on[list]Typical BIOS hotkeys..http://gluek.info/wiki/hardware/howto-e ... os-hotkeys
If you are really stuck on the BIOS hotkey, you can reflash the BIOS, you need to get a utility (it will save your cotrrent BIOS before reflashing it
--an example is awardhttp://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/mainbo ... pdate.htmlhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIOS
Or you can remove of use the the mainboard chip (or dip) switch selection to clear (CLR) the BIOS
--removing the mainboard battery will also work; the BIOS will lose its current setup and boot with default selections, then you can re-edit ..
