F2 and F12 keys will NOT bring up BIOS or Boot Order...

I've finally replaced the CMOS battery, even that didn't help...:-(

Disconnected ALL external cables and held down power button for 30+seconds, didn't help either..:-(

Dell Inspiron 530 desktop with W7 Ultimate...

PC will NOT boot OS "IF" external USB HD[backup drive]is connected, removing the USB, it  boots to OS..

Please advise..

I'd eventually like to install another internal HD/SSD's , but without BOOT Order F12, it  seems doubtful...
