Sometimes it's F12, or F2, or Del.

The only thing I can recommend at this point is to check the manual because it should explain how to get into the BIOS. It may even explain if changing the BOOT priority is an option.

Try Escape Key. If you have the manual it will tell you. If you would fill out your complete system specs including model number, we could give better help.

Look for something in the manual that talks about accessing the BIOS.

If F9 and F10 are not working, then you're probably out of luck here. I mean, if these are the only ways to change the boot option or to get into the BIOS but the keys themselves are not working, then I don't know what else to do here.

As Twocables said, if the keyboard is malfunctioning, you will need to have it repaired or replaced. There is no way I know of to make any changes to bios unless you can enter bios. I don't know if it will work, but maybe if you plug in a USB keyboard, you can use that keyboard to enter bios.
