No HP logo or bios screen, straight to windows

Hp pavilion dv6-7043cl

Recently i noticed whenever i restart my PC, There is no BIOS screen, it's completely black, monitor doesn't load anything, it stays black for a long while (i don't know about 2 minutes or so), then the monitor turns on like it's black but lights on or you can visibly see that the monitor is on, after that the WINDOWS loads.

they come up, you just aren't seeing them. hit the bios key once the system is powered on, usually either "del" or "f2". i usually just smash both of them, worst comes to worst you'll get a keyboard error prompt and that will get you into bios anyways.

Ok so today i tried presing "f2", "f10", "del" key after restarting my computer and all i saw was a black screen and then heard loud beeps whenever i pressed those keys and the bios screen did not show up. What could be the problem? However, if i do not press anything and restart my pc, windows does load, but i cannot access the bios screen O_O
