Delete goes to BIOS Setup...good. Now we need to go into the case and do the following:
Since it appears you are ok about being inside the machine, let's try flashing the BIOS. To do this, you need to remove the CMOS battery. It's about the size of a quarter and is usually located in the lower right quarter of the Motherboard. Near the battery (either below or to the right on most) you should see 3 small pins with a jumper block on them. It should look like this, where the underscore represents the jumper . . .
Move the jumper to the other pins . . .
for about 30 seconds and then move it back to it's original position. Put the battery back in, making sure to put it in +
Note that this will clear the date, time, and restore all default settings to the BIOS. You will have to reset any settings you have changed such as Boot Priority. If you are not using a static strap, keep one hand or your arm touching the metal part of the case to prevent static discharge damage to the Motherboard and it's components.
Reboot and try to enter BIOS Setup by pressing the Delete key during the boot sequence.
Let me know how it goes...
