How to access the BI/OS?

How do I enter the BI/OS setup during boot? I have windows 8. Whenever I start my computer, it shows the gigabyte logo and boots to windows. I tried all the F keys and none worked, so how would I enter it?

    Either F12, F11, DELTE, F1 or F2 will allow you to enter at start up. You have to have them depressed BEFORE you see the Gigabyte logo.

    I did press the keys BEFORE the gigabyte logo shows up.
    I tried F1, 2, 3 ,4 ,5 ,6 ,7 ,8 ,9 10, 11, 12. all which did not work

    I see your problem (maybe). Spam the keys until you either see the BIOS homescreen, or the Windows logo (if you were spamming the wrong key)

    I did press the keys BEFORE the gigabyte logo shows up.
    I tried F1, 2, 3 ,4 ,5 ,6 ,7 ,8 ,9 10, 11, 12. all which did not work

    EDIT: The next step is to jump the CMOS.

    Del seems to be the most common key now.Had the same problem switching from my old ASUS.
