Blood Iron P35-T2RL Cant Access BIOS

Just completed this build and the system starts up, everything appeas to run but I cannot access the BIOS. When holding down the DEL key upon startup the "BloodIron" logo screen displays so I know that something is working, but the BIOS screen will not show. Any suggestions, ideas or try this?

Note the config below

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

  1. Flash the BIOS by shorting the pin or removing the CMOS battery. Try again and see if you can reach them.

    This same thing happened with my M2NE SLI after I entered the BIOS once and changed the data / time then restarted.
  2. I'll give that a try! Thanks!!

    Any other bright ideas, I need all the help I can get. This is the first system in 10 years that hasn't booted up right away!
  3. this might sound stupid, but what type of keyboard are you using?
    your motherboard might not support usb keyboards/ mouses by default, so try using a ps/2 keyboard/mouse
  4. Great idea but same with PS2 keyboard.

    So far I have replaced the MOBO, reset the BIOS, disconnected all but 1 HD, the all HD's, the IDE DVD, replaced the Memory (originally had 2 X 2048 G-Skill), tried 1 X 1024 stick only. I'm running out of options!

    I have a replacement PSU to try and after that I might just pack it all up and send it home. I've used DFI for years and never had any problems. I get the feeling that it is something stupid I'm over looking. Any great ideas on stupid things I'm over looking?

    Thanks for the suggestions.
