To clear CMOS, simply remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard (with PSU unplugged) for about one minute then replace. The system will prompt you into BIOS then to set the system clock. That's not the best way into BIOS but it may help get the keyboard to work? This may sound dumb but are you sure the delete key works on the keyboard?
It's something anyway...
Thank you. Yes. The delete key works. In fact I have tried two different keybiards, one usb and one wireless. Both are in working condition as i use them on my other pc.
So why should i clear this cmos anyways if i presume my mobo is brand new? Thanks.
I think the idea is that it may be a BIOS glitch (temporary) which would be cleared by resetting CMOS... can't really say though, it wasn't my idea (which is why the question mark in my post about fixing the keyboard).
With a brand new motherboard though, I think I would be in contact with Gigabyte at this point, they will probably tell you to flash to the latest, greatest BIOS for "improved keyboard compatability" but since you should get into BIOS using the delete key and you are unable to, that is a problem for Gigabyte to deal with IMO.
