Windows 7: Disable fast boot up to enable BIOS Settings

Disable fast boot up to enable BIOS Settings

My older brother has a Toshiba Satellite laptop. In his configuration, he has enabled fast boot up, thus, upon power up, the initial splash screen doesn't show but straight to the windows login screen. Now, I wanted to access the BIOS but I don't know how. I tried pressing DEL (for the BIOS setup) but since he has once enabled fast boot up in the BIOS settings itself, I can no longer do so. It always goes straight to the logon screen. Please help guys. I've tried searching the forum for possible same case/s but to no avail.

Good evening! A week ago I reinstalled Windows 7 in EFI mode on my laptop, and now I've got this problem: whenever I turn on my computer after a shutdown, the BIOS says "System Resuming" instead of "Press F2 to enter settings". This makes impossible for me to access BIOS settings. Previously, my...
