How to Access the BIOS of a Toshiba Satellite

Toshiba releases a great variety of models under the "Satellite" name. Unlike most computers, Toshiba Satellites give you two options for entering BIOS. You can either press a certain key during laptop startup, or you can use a special Hardware Setup utility, which allows you to conveniently reach BIOS options without restarting your laptop.
