I noticed that there was a flashing white dash on a black screen appearing after my BIOS in startup and since it was frustrating me I attempted to rectify it. I changed a couple of settings around in my BIOS, my motherboard by the way is the Maximus VI Formula by ASUS. I changed some settings, one relating to legacy usb settings i believe, another was turning hot plugs on and also putting my ssd as the first boot priority, as it's the one that has my OS on it. Now I can't use my mouse or keyboard or even access the bios, as it seems to be skipping all steps and instantly starting the computer. Is there anyway I can force the bios to appear when I restart my computer? Would greatly appreciate help, thanks :) 

Also, wondering why when my computer starts up it makes a lot of noise, seems to be coming from the motherboard or something. Only happens for a few seconds then goes silent. Also happens when I launch games or steam.

EDIT: I also changed a setting to turn turbo mode on.

Read this dude...

*When I start my computer, all the fans run at max for a few seconds, it makes a lot of noise.

*I have the same mobo. There's a button for going to bios through it somewhere... However, I think your usb would still be disabled... I'm not sure off hand if there is a button on it to totally reset bios. =D

Maybe something needs to be secured better? Like fans and the such going off on something is causing it to kick around?


**BTW, years ago I accidentally disabled my PCIE slots... I didn't have another computer, or any form of internet access. Lucky for me I still had my mobo guide, and was able to read about the jumper.



It could be... HDD or Dvd... Only moving parts if not water cooling.... Fans / HDD / DVD.

I don't know, but water cooling now adds the pump as option... Or, maybe some type of build up that water is having to fight past?

I never went water, but I do know you're supposed to do fresh fluid every 6 months.

Clearing the CMOS should reset all of the BIOS settings to their default settings.

That's funny.

I posted that link for him, without even mentioning that it's the way to clear the bios through the mobo. ^^

I suggest you check out "Overclock.net". There are a lot of people with custom loops on the site. I'd ask about the sound your system is making, because it doesn't seem like something that should be happening... Though since I don't water cool, I'm not sure what can be expected.

I just keep restarting and holding down or tapping the ESC key or whatever key. It usually works after 20 tries or since mine boots to windows so fast as well >.<

Turbo core is really loud so that might be it especially it is that usual electrical high load processing sound.

You can disable the Turbo core in AMD Catalyst Control Center by right click on the desktop -> Power -> CPU Power and lowering the CPU frequency slider bar by one notch.

If the noise goes away then it is due to the turbo core as my a6-5400k does the same thing upon start up and whenever I load a fun program. I just did this recently and my computer is so quiet with "Turbocore" disabled

The noise just started after you made changes, right? My mind is way out in left field with bleeding the water cooling system >.<

Maybe you turned on fastboot??
Use the link above. CMOS will turn everything back to stock, and that should fix it.

Yeah i worked out that the CMOS clear fixed everything. However, i'm still wondering why i get that white flashing dash on a black screen after the bios screen appears. Any thoughts on how to fix it??

I remember my older computers do that so it should be fine or is it causing your computer to boot slower? I usually grab food after powering up my windows 7 PC since it took 2 minutes to boot. Now that my windows 8 PCs boot up in 10 seconds or less, I haven't been eating well T.T
