Welcome to GeeksToGo.
Are you using a USB keyboard?
Now on some Dell PC's there are only certain USB ports the are active on Boot Up.
For your PC the keyboard and mouse should be connected to the USB ports directly below the Audio I/O ports.
See This Article for details. Part 2.

if you have a ps/2 keyboard plug it into the ps/2 port and boot your pc, then shut down,
reboot your pc and begin tapping which ever key it is to get into your bios (F2 on mine, but some are Esc or Delete)
if you get into the bios then search for usb legacy support and enable it, this will allow you to use a usb keyboard in your bios,
do one change at a time in the bios, this will allow you to keep track of the changes and change the setting back if any problems arise
