    It says on line that it supports Windows 8. Where can I find this information you just gave me? Thanks so much for your interest in this case. According to Dell the disks I made are for reinstalling Windows 8. I just went into Dell, under my Service Tag, to check for updates and there is a link there to download the reinstall disk also.

    I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
    or
    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the OEM manufacturer's website.

    Ok. BTW I just remembered, when I first installed Acronis about 2 months ago, I made a boot disk and tested it. It worked at that time. Thanks for your time and effort.

    The BIOS update completed successfully, but it didn't correct the problem. Thanks for trying.

    Don't you get your system logo on startup?
    if not the best way would be to restore your bios!
    try going to your manufacturer's website and get a few bios updates older or newer anything and install them. this may work

    best of luck,

    Go here.. Dell PC Diagnostics | Dell US

    Select Complete > click Run Diagnostics

    You might have a faulty keyboard. This issue is very strange, I see no reason why you can not access the BIOS. Unless your keyboard needs to be changed. Hopefully Dell Diagnostics will provide more information. If this issue can not be resolved you should seek advice from Dell on how to replace non working components.
