I've an old Toshiba Satellite C665-P5010. I don't know its password, so I can't log into it. To recover my system, I've a bootable USB with a software in it.

But, I don't know how to enter the BIOS set up of my lap.

I want to enter its BIOS set up and change the boot from option to USB. I don't know how to do this. Can someone please help me?

Is the BIOS key for Toshiba Satellite C665-P5010 - F2, F8, F10, F11, or F12?

Also, if it's F11 or F12--my external keyboard (laps keyboard not working) does not have F11 & F12, so how can I enter BIOS?

The usual key to enter bios is DEL or F2.
Usually, the F12 key gets you to the boot menu.
Tap each very quickly to see if you get the bios or boot menu.

Often, USB is higher, by default in the boot order.
You could simply insert the recovery usb and try.

The bios may have set secure boot.
That prevents anything to boot if it is not the same device on which the os was installed.
There is a way in windows to start a recovery procedure to bypass this.

One shortcut I found is to hold down the shift key while telling windows to power off.

Tried this too geofelt. But not working.

It looks like secure boot is set. Can you tell me how I can use recovery to change the boot to USB?

Have you tried inserting the usb and powering on?

Try contacting Toshiba with your problem, they may have a back door option.
Thanks for the help, geofelt! Finally, found a solution that works.

Tried this on my - Toshiba Satellite C665-P5010 to enter BIOS and it works👍

Step 1: Shutdown the laptop.

Step 2: Drain all its power by removing the battery and pressing the power button.

Step 3: Put the battery back, switch on the laptop, and press F2. And Voila! You get BIOS.
