I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH motherboard with a Intel core I7 2600K. The graphics card I have is an MSI N660 TI. As the title says I can't access the BIOS screen. When I turn on the computer the Gigabyte logo appears with the various keys to hit. I start hitting the delete key on my ps2 keyboard right as I hit the power button. I have tried clearing the CMOS values by removing the battery on the motherboard for a couple of minutes, and by shorting out the two pins. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Can't say for sure but you can use this ....Try making changes in the internal hardware.Like, If you got multiple RAM sets try taking one out so that the system gets time to analyze the change.Or disconnect the hardisk temporarily.
I have taken detailed notes on exactly what happens when I press the power button. This is with the power supply, video card, CPU, CPU Fan, RAM, and case accessories connected to the motherboard.
Display comes on (7 sec)
1 Beep (8 Sec)
Keyboard Lights i.e numlock light turns on (8 sec)
Motherboard speaker making clicking noise every time I hit delete key (21 sec)
1 Beep (Same as 1st beep) (35 sec)
1 Beep (Same as other beeps) (1 min 3 sec)
1 Beep (Same as other beeps) Screen goes black (1 min 38 sec)
No other beeps, no clicking when keys are pressed.
Note time is started when I hit power button, and the times are what the stopwatch reads. i.e the display comes on at 7 sec and 1 second later (8 sec) there is a beep
Okay I did that and no change. It just booted up like it has been. No prompt for F1 key
repeat it but this time do remember to discharge the chassis. that means, you turn off all power coming into the chassis, which means unplugging your monitor too. next remove the battery and press the power button a couple of time...this removes the static and will ensure that on reboot you are prompted with CMOS checksum error
Hey everyone. I just wanted to let you guys know that I was finally able to get into the BIOS screen. I ended up disconnecting the video card, HDD, disk drive, and used the intel graphics. So, my next step is going to be connecting the disk drive, and my HDD. I'm then going to install Windows 7. Next, I'm going to install my chipset drivers. After those are installed i'm going to connect the graphics card and install the drivers for that. Does this sound okay? Do I need to install any other drivers?
