F12 at start up should get you to a boot menu.

I tried that several moons ago. All I get isa a beep, but no picture. When I get into bios I cannot change any settings. I want to change the boot order. Was able to do that without problems on another Dell, but not this one

Disabling the CMOS battery, booting without the battery installed allowed me to go into BIOS and make all needed changes. F-12 does not get me anywhere....

On your next boot try using the delete key to get into the bios.

Not worthy of it. Should have thought of it to begin with, but the mind slips sometimes.
