I previously reported ReadSpeed results. Since then I've noticed a problem accessing BIOS or Windows Boot Menu in the usual ways. I have a Lenovo Ideapad 330s-15ARR SN PF1XB28E. The usual ways are via <F2>, <F12>, or the Novo Button, (kind of a reset button, but can be used from a shutdown state only.) After ReadSpeed the Novo Button menu selections for BIS or Windows Boot will perform a normal startup instead. The <F> keys mentioned now do nothing. Coincidence? I don't know. I have been in touch with both Windows Support and Lenovo Support with no resolution. Any ideas?

Have you tried a hard restart, i.e. complete power-down and restart rather than the usual Win 10 hibernate. You could even try disconnecting the power, removing the battery, and then hold down the on/off switch for about 30 seconds to drain any residual charge.
