The other thing I'm looking at is "when the Dell logo appears". The logo appears before the BIOS executes it's boot sequence, long before it hands off to the OS.

You could also try repeatedly pressing the F8 key immediately after pressing the power button, or just at the time you anticipate the Dell logo to come up, and continue pressing repeatedly it until the logo disappears.
