Need to get into BIOS, USB peripherals don't turn on in time.

I need to get into the BIOS to turn on VT-d and some other virtualization settings, but now I can't do that because about a week ago I remember I changed some settings in the BIOS labelled "ultra fast boot" (or something similar) and if I recall correctly, one of the settings caused the USB peripherals to turn on after the OS booted, instead of before. My motherboard is a G1.Sniper B5 and I'm supposed to press the "Delete" key in order to get into the BIOS, but obviously I can't do that now because my keyboard doesn't turn on in time. I'd really appreciate any help I can get because I need to get this VM running as soon as possible.

Additional info that might be helpful:
The motherboard is revision 1.1
I'm booting from an 840 Evo SSD
I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro

take out the CMOS battery on the motherboard for a minute (while PC is powered off and unplugged of course) and put it back in, power up. this will re set the BIOS settings to default.

I had to take out my 2 slot GPU because it was blocking the battery, but it worked. Thanks!
