I cant get in BIOS to my Toshiba laptop. Probably I turned on the fast boot or because of Fn key.

How can I get in bios BIOS?

The BIOS key is F2. - Spam this whilst booting up your computer or if you see the Toshiba logo start to press it then. – Samuel Nicholson Nov 4 '13 at 10:51

The Toshiba Hardware utility (HWSetup) can also be used to change some of the settings if F2 or F12 does not work. This method may be the only way to access the BIOS settings on some laptops. Select the Start button. In the search, type in "HWSetup." In the search returns select HW Setup to open. Make changes as necessary and select "Apply." Reboot the computer if not prompted to do so. If not already installed, the Toshiba Hardware utility can be downloaded from after clicking "Downloads" and selecting your computer information.

If you have FAST boost enabled, in my experience it is almost impossible to get into the BIOS (F2). Try searching/opening "Toshiba System Settings" (if applicable) and change FAST boost back to NORMAL (this can also be changed in the BIOS, if only you could get to it).
