The BIOS, or Basic Input Output System, is the very first thing that loads when you turn your computer on. The BIOS contains system commands that allow the computer's hardware to interact with each other and the operating system. Changing the wrong settings in the BIOS can render a computer unusable, so computer manufacturers like Toshiba require the user to complete a set of keystrokes to make sure that people don't accidentally access the BIOS.
