    Default Can't get into any recovery options in Windows 8, F2, F8 & F12

    Hello,
    I was doing a factory reinstall and it got turned off. When I booted up the laptop I had , this pc needs to be repaired screen,,hit f8 or enter to retry. Well I've hit those keys a billion times. Okay so then I said I'll just try the reinstall again, but I can't get into bios to change the boot order. Tried f2, f8 and f12 , to many times to count.

    So I'm stuck on this pc needs to be repaired screen, so I can't change any settings, test anything or download.

    Here is what I've done.....

    Took out hard drive, still couldn't get into bios.
    Tried switching ram sticks in different slots.
    Took out bios battery.
    Tried other combos of ,f keys,, but I know those are the ones, cause I have done a factory reinstall on this laptop before.
    And I even did those things a billion times too.

    I don't know what happened or what else to try.

    Dell inspiron 5720
    Windows 8
    Error code Oxc0000225, which at this point doesn't even matter.

    Thanks so much.
