Your problem is the computer does not completely turn off it goes to sleep/hibernation state when you power off.
You need to go to control panel, select power options, then, looking at you power plan settings you will see a box down the bottom saying turn on fast start up, which will be ticked you need to un-tick it.
Then your laptop will completely shut down you'll be able to access bios.

You were right, shut off was set to hibernation, not power off. Once changed, access to bios was easily accomplished. Thanks!
