    To get into the BIOS you have to press a specific key on the keyborad as soon as you switch the pc on.

    You normally get a prompt to which says "BIOS key X"

    Most computers yuo can access the BIOS by pressing either

    You man you do not see a POST screen? That is quite nomal for new computers.

    You usually have to press some key to get into the BIOS setup.
    Try hitting DEL or INSERT or ESC or F1 or F2 right after powering on.

    At last resort, unplug the keyboard and power on the machine. You should get an error message telling you to press some key for setup.
