Hello People of Tom's Hardware...

I have recently encountered a bit of a problem with my BRAND NEW GIGABYTE F2A85XM-D3H (rev 1.1) motherboard. I am using it for my computer build. I have all the main supplies setup inside of it, but I cannot access ANYTHING listed in the manual (CMOS Setup, Boot Menu, QFlash, etc.)... Usually the POST screen flashes for a split second so I cannot read anything if it comes up at all. My keyboard (Micro Innovations USB) is unresponsive but the num-lock is on. Any ideas? I have just put it together and need to boot from a USB DVD-ROM

My Specifications:
1x8GB Corsair Vengance LP DDR3 RAM
250GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 SATA-1 Hard Drive
GIGABYTE F2A85XM-D3H (rev 1.1) motherboard
AMD A-Series Socket FM2 64-bit Processor
Diablotek DA Series 600W PSU
Rosewill FBM-01 Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Thank you! ~DrRogueTech

Hi, Try clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for few minutes or use the CLRCMOS jumper cap, if available).
