Theres probably a recovery partition instead, when you turn it on keep an eye out for a message on screen, normally it will say press F something to enter diagnostics and from there there will be an option to factory reset.

Alternatively if it runs Windows 8 there is an option to do a factory reset from within Windows itself.

It wont be in the actual bios, just on screen when you get the enter bios option so rather than pressing DEL to get into the bios it might be F7 to get into diagnostics, often F12 will give you a boot menu that lets you get into the diagnostics too.
