XPS 13-9333 - No one time boot menu or access to BIOS-on boot.

After installing Ubuntu 16.04 LTS  I was unable to reboot into the newly installed system nor access the one time boot menu from F12 or the BIOS from F2 keys after the DELL logo and bar completed itself and displayed F12 and F2 in the bottom corner of the screen.

I can access  the ePSA Pre-boot System Assessment using CTRL Fn held down at boot.    I have run it twice, returning no faults.   Tapping the F8 key at boot has no effect.

Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you.

Dell tech services do not have an answer.   I might just as well bin it and get something else.

Thanks to all those who read my post.

Hold down one or more keys through powerup.  That should trip a keyboard error and allow you into the system. 

Is there an administrator password on the system?
