You should look in the documentation that came with your computer. – Seth Dec 9 '12 at 0:23

The manual does not state how to enter BIOS setup. No doubt they expect you to be able to read the instructions when it flashes up on the screen momentarily. It turns out the key to enter BIOS is Del. The key to enter the boot menu (very hand to know) is just Esc. Both of these are very common keys for Asus machines.
