Hi I have mobo Gigabyte x79 UD3 and cpu intel i7 3820. PSU 800W. I boot computer and appears the initial screen of gigabyte emblem and says function keys, TAB post screen, DEL bios setup/Qflash ,F9 system information, F12 Boot Menu, END Qflash.
I press DEL and a black screen appears with a blinking cursor top left.
If I do not press a key after some time the same black screen appears.
I cannot enter to bios. I tried to put a DVD with win8 setup in DVD player but the same happens. I put the keyboard in PS2 port, the same happens. I put keyboard in usb port, the same happenss. Then I turn off computer.
How can I enter to BIOS???

Hi, I had put the battery out of motherboard, I left it outside for one night, and the next morning I did put again the battery in the motherboard. But the same problem. A startup logo with function keys appears and whatever I press, I wait and appears a black screen with a cursor blinking top left.
Nothing happens. I put a live dvd of linux in dvd player, but nothing appears on screen. Maybe I go for a new battery but I must wait the weekend to pass because today is saturday and the markets are closed

Ok the problem is solved by the service
They replaced graphics card, and they updated bios version to F14.
Now the computer boots fine and it has win8
