First time boot, stuck on please press del or f2 to enter uefi settings

Aug 29, 2018
So I built a PC, and my first one might I add, and I'm pretty confident i built everything correctly. But when I turn it on, as it says in the title, I can't get past the "please press del or f2." I've been looking for a solution for around about a month right now and nothing is working. I've tried every usb port on the pc, resetting the cmos battery (though im not sure if I did that correctly). Could someone PLEASE help me out? This problem is extremely frustrating, and I feel like I wasted a bunch of money now. Is it possible i have a defective motherboard or something of that sort?
