I am trying to boot into the bios on my vaio laptop but it doesn't show the post screen so I can't figure out what button to push. Help appreciated!

Thanks, F2 was the button I needed to press. It didn't open up the bios the first time while spamming the button. So I tried just holding F2 down while turning the power on and that worked.

Woohoo! Now I can boot from my thumb drive.
