Sometimes F2 or DEL but I'm not too familiar with eMachines per se.

I think the answer from 10 years and 2 days ago above still applies: "should be in your system manual".

To elaborate, her's what says:
"Press the Tab key during boot-up. If nothing happens, and you see the Windows logo, restart the computer again. Try pressing the Del key during the reboot. Some eMachines also use the F2 key to enter the BIOS. Therefore, try each key if you fail to access the BIOS settings screen on the first or second attempt. If you still cannot access the BIOS, refer to your manual for the correct key or keys to press following the reboot."

That makes me think it can be different for different models. And that makes your question unanswerable.
