Hi, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X220.
It used to have a integrated keyboard.
It have a blue Think Vantage button to get into bios.
But, the keyboard cable is teared.
Now, i use a dedicated keyboard.
How do i get into bios without that button?
Thanks.

Follow the suggestion, here, by someotherguy. I'd have suggested tapping on F2 soon after you press down on the power button. If you're on Windows 10, you can hold down on the shift key while pressing on the restart option in START and then you should hit on Advanced>Troublehoot>UEFI Firmware

First of all, you can buy a replacement keyboard for $40 .

They are easy to install.

The problem with getting into the bios is because you have not fully shut down.
There is a complicated method involving windows recovery.
I found a simple method.
Just hold down the shift key while you hit the power off tab.
When powering back up repeatedly hit the f2/DEL keys.
