Uhh... why does my bios not work!?!

So I've spent many hours trying to get my bios to work. This is a completely new build I've done. The computer powers on, and I installed windows 7 which also works fine but when I try to boot up bios when I start the computer the computer black screens. Now at first I thought maybe it was my monitor but I tried it out on two hdmi tvs in my house so I'm doubting that now. I've hit every key that should boot my bios: delete, f3, f4, f5... etc.... Still nothing. The screen that come up when I turn on my computer is a gigabyte screen real briefly but the edges of the screen are cut off so I can't even see everything. This is extremely frustrating considering I finally got the whole computer together, put in my windows 7 key, and now I might have to tear it out since the mobo isn't working properly. :fou:  Here is my mobo I'm using: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and here is the remainder of my set up:
CPU: Intel Pentium G2120 Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz LGA 1155 Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80637G2120
Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Case: RAIDMAX Super Hurricane ATX-248NWB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
PSU: COUGAR A-Series A560 (CGR B3-560) 560W ATX12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Ultra Quiet Power Supply
Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
Windows 7 Home Premium OEM

Any help, I mean anything even an "I don't know for sure" suggestion would help because I am desperate to get this thing running properly.

Unplug the power cable, then use the CLR_CMOS jumper at the bottom of the board to reset your BIOS settings to default (check the manual for the specific method), Re-attach the power cord and turn-on the computer. You should then see the BIOS screen. If you need to re-set any custom BIOS settings, enter the BIOS, then Save and Exit.

It also never hurts to make sure your keyboard is not on a USB hub or the USB 3 ports. Some boards do not work with the usb 3 ports or hubs in the bios.
