Best to provide full info on the system, for a better suggestion.

Most common access key is the [del] one.. just after you note the single beep or see the keyboard LEDS flash the second time. Keep pressing it repeatedly for a few seconds.
Not all mobo types use the same key to enter the BIOS. Some require the "F1" or "F2" or "F10" key be pressed at a specific time.
And some mobos have a jumper to prevent access to the BIOS. Check the mobo manual.
