    Normally you access your Bios by continually pressing the delete key off and on during post cycle however your laptop has the F2 function.
    You should be able to access Bios with F2 held down.

    There's 3 ways that I know of to get into the BIOS, the first is to use either F2 or Del key during boot but that sound's like its not working for you. the second is to shutdown Windows using the recovery option (if using Windows 10). this is found in the settings menu under startup and recovery options. I'm not in front of my machine at the moment and so unable to guide more precisely where it is located but there is an option to boot straight to BIOS. The last possible option is to disconnect your CPU fan, this will cause the BIOS to halt during boot and allow access to 'fix' the problem.
