Getting into the BIOS is sometimes a problem.  Use this procedure to be successful.

Start tapping the Esc key and then press the start button.
Keep tapping the Esc key until a popup menu shows.  Then pick from that popup menu which function desired.

Thank you for your response. Although the boot menu Did Not come up.

 

In order to clone my hard drive to a new disk without rebooting, I had to purchase new Acronis software TrueImage 2021 that allows active cloning.

 

I had, and still do, Acronis 12.5 Backup software that requires a rescue disk to create a cloned drive. Since I can't boot from CD or get to the BIOS Settings my backups were worthless. Now I'm trying to figure out if the cloned drive that was successful under Acronis TrueImage 2021 does not have any flaws.

 

If you some other idea why this is not working please let me know.

 

I do have a 4K 32" LG (32UKMT) screen. I may try to downgrade temporarily to a non-4K to see if it makes a difference. Maybe the old BIOS doesn't recognize the screen.

 

Thanks again

From the spec page for that model, it does not show a HDMI as an output, so perhaps use a monitor that will accept DVI-D or DVI-I directly without any convertor.  The BIOS has to show assuming following the procedure I posted

Start tapping the Esc key before starting the computer and then press the start button.
Keep tapping the Esc key until a popup menu shows. Then pick from that popup menu which function desired.

 

If you cannot get into the BIOS, then there is not way to do anything.
