unable to access BIOs on my 970A-G43
« on: 04-September-13, 20:38:01 »

the manual says to press the DELETE key at the post screen to boot into bios.

now, my monitor is weird so i don't actually get to see the post screen, so instead i've just been mashing the DEL key immediately after pressing the power button on my PC

this used to work, but now it doesn't.

my OS is Windows 8 x64 if that makes a difference.

according to Click BIOS 2, i don't have any Windows 8 fast boot options on, and i could have swore i saw an option to restart my pc directly to the BIOs from clickbios 2

any help is much apreciated.

 Have you tried repeatedly tapping Del. key, don't just mash it and hold it down. If that still doesn't get you into BIOS setup try with an old PS/2 keyboard.

by mash i meant repeatedly pressing the key

like button mashing, you know, that kind of thing.

and i've tried three different keyboard. a wireless one (knew it wouldn't work, but it's what i actually use)
a USB keyboard, and a regular PS/2 keyboard.

none of them got me into the BIOs.

the manual also says I can press F11 at the post screen to choose what device to boot from, and that doesn't work either.
