I have an ASUS P5Q-E and the other day I was trying to do a BIOS update. I regret now but I made the mistake of doing the update in Windows instead of doing it in BIOS. It said it was 100% complete and rebooted. After rebooting, it was stuck on the "hit delete to enter BIOS settings" screen and won't go any further. Keyboard turns on, display turns on, but I don't think it POSTs. I tried moving the jumpers on the mobo and putting it back to original position and also took out the CMOS battery for about 30minutes but no luck. What can I do to fix this. Please help.
Remove the hard drive and try booting up.. If you can reach the BIOS, try reverting back to the previous BIOS.. If successful, connect the hard drive then and see if the system boots up normally..
I will try booting without the hard drive. Can you tell me how I can revert back to the original BIOS? The mobo only came with cds for the drivers and I don't think Asus's site has the original BIOS I had.
After searching online for a solution, I saw someone post something about how if you are using a usb keyboard, it won't be recognized so use a ps/2 keyboard. (When under "Press delete for setup" screen) So I tried that and was stoked that I was able to get into the BIOS and did a save and exit and was able to boot into Windows.
