This is my issue fallowed by specs.
Im not sure why but when I boot up it flashes asus real fast not allowing me to enter Bios and goes directly into Win7. Yes I have tried every sequence of holding / tapping ESC. I just built the pc about 2 weeks ago and this is a new problem that just started. Steps I have taken so far trying to fix issue. I took all the steps to CMOS, and Take out battery when I rebooted it alowed me to enter Bios but only until I reboot. So I reloaded the most recent Bios. Still it just booted directly into win7. I unplugged all SATA cables rebooted and it booted into BIOS. So I l plugged in my SSD and HDD without dvd and BD drives still went directly into Win7. Im not sure what steps I need to take or if there is just some setting in BIOS im missing I would think that resetting and going to defaults should have fixed problem If it was working before. Any help would be Great! thank you.


note: While in BIOS all ram shows up fine and working also shows in win as working fine. And when I am in the BIOS my BOOT DEVICE LED is lit up but turns off once it boots into windows.

In Windows 7, do you shutdown or hibernate the system? You described what happens when a system is in hibernation mode, i.e., you can't enter the BIOS configuration screen when you power it up.

Just an update i removed ram switched locations, tried with just one all booted directly into windows. I pulled my gpu ran it with just onboard still same. Cleared CMOS every step no change. Could this be a software issue? I might reload Windows and start fresh to see if it was Just a software issue.

Ah. Turn off your computer - Keep clicking del del del (or whatever the key is used for getting into bios settings - it may be F2), click the power on button from your other hand - KEEP PRESSING THE BUTTON - LIKE A MAD MAN! *pressprespresspresspress* <- Like this.

If you get into bios, get into the boot options and change your POST Time Delay to at least 3 seconds.
