First of all press Esc and Ctrl and Delete at the same time, tends to be one of them so hold all of them at fist boot-up.

sometimes on other computers, rather than showing bios version, RAM checks etc on the POST, it just shows a splash screen of the make of the computer.

There is still a way to get into the bios, but you just gotta try different buttons. Try to go to the manufacturer's website of your computer, they might tell you the button to press. Or, just press everything on booting up to try to get in ;).
