I don't know what is going on. I was able to see the Bios fine before i started Overclocking. I used that Easytune 6 and pushed the Red Button for overclocking. I was using it for about 2-3 days and everything i tested out appeared great. The Temps did not go up alot. So today when i wanted to go see my Bios, as soon as you call it, it freezes up right there on first site. I even tried with boot menu, and i can't press the UP and DOWN arrows. I returned the OC back to Default to see if maybe it was just the overclocking doing this and it's still doing it even with the Processor back to normal speeds.

-Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3 Motherboard
-Intel i7 Core 3770k
-8GB Memory
-128GB Samsung SSD 830 Series
-Nvidia EVGA 670 GTX
-1050 Watt ULTRA PSU


Any help please because i don't understand why this is happening. Windows Boots just fine. But all of this is going to be a huge problem when i'm ready to set up a Raid-0.

I tried resetting the Cmos and that didn't work. Everything is still the same.

What "site" is it freezing on?

Can you run any programs at all? Maybe get into task manager, CPU-Z, anything?

Okay, so basicly this is WEIRD because i just now figured it out. I've been playing The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion today using a very old Airflo Controller. This controller is the only controller than i know of that allows this game to function all the way. As the Xbox 360 controllers don't due to having a bad right analog.

Basicly in short. The cause of Bios freezing was that Airflo controller the whole time. When you unplug it and boot, Bios works fine again. A friend of mine says that this controller may be confusing the motherboard because it might be acting like a keyboard and mouse too.
