flashing dash on boot

Actually my PC is booting ok but I no longer get the F key menu (3 F key items, I can not remember what they said) in the lower right corner of the screen. Instead I get a flashing dash - in the upper left corner of the screen. I am trying to get into the BIOS/CMOS setup screen and have tried ESC, DEL, F2, F10, and F8. F2 gives me "windows Boot Manager". F8 Safe Mode/normal boot ect.
F10 "edit windows boot options for: windows 7" and DEL same as F2 with the option to press F8 for the Safe Mode screen choices.

I have been in the BIOS/CMOS setup screen but can not remember the key. I would like to get that menu back and get in to the setup screen. Any ideas?
