BIOS menu on my Lenovo laptop does strange things.

Specs: Windows 10, Don't know
In the bios menu it says Phoenix secure core technology. Is that what it should say. Also the boot order seems way off. What can I do?

Yeah it should have the phoenix securecore bios. You set the boot order in bios setup. Here's a download for the manual if you don't have it:

that should explain it.

In what ways is it acting strange? I'm thinking that you must have bigger problems than the bios brand and boot order.

The name is related to the company that wrote your BIOS.
Your BIOS settings instructions are with your computer or motherboard manual. If they are not in a printed manual you need to download the full manual from their website. Generally on most desktop systems with one hard drive, your DVD drive is generally first in boot order with the hard drive second. The only other possibility is a USB being on the boot order but this is net generally needed and should not be early in the boot order unless you have a specific need at the time. Many manufactured systems will not have the DVD drive before the hard drive because for the less technical person, it avoids problems and for the more technical, it is no problem to change it either right away or as needed.
I suggest you study the manual and if needed, come back to ask specific questions. Please include more details on your system at that time.

Though this adds something else to the question, it does not include enough details and there are wild speculations about one thing being related to something else.

IS this a new computer? Have you had it long? Is this a refurbished machine? Is this a hand me down machine? Was this machine at anytime part of a corporate network?
If this machine was not new when you got it, you may need to do a Factory Restore which will return it to the way it was shipped from the factory (Please note that all data will be lost so if you have anything to save, do this to an external drive before proceeding.).
