Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro 490CDT Notebook
You might have to go to Toshiba support and get a BIOS Flash to update for your BIOS. Win XP is no longer supported, therefore you may need to go to Windows 10.

After "Fast Boot" has been enabled, you cannot access the BIOS setup
during power on . The machine will bypass "Press F2 to access Setup
Utiltiy and F12 for Boot Menu" prompt.
This is a bigger issue if the hard drive crashes and access to Windows is not possible OR
Fast Boot can be enabled or disabled in the BIOS setup, or in HW Setup under Windows.
If you have Fast Boot enabled and you want to get into the BIOS setup. Hold down the F2 key, then power on. That will get you into the BIOS setup Utility.
You can disable the Fast Boot Option here. You will need to disable Fast Boot if you want to use the F12 / Boot menu.
