can no longer enter bios after hardware changes
Posted on 2006-04-19
no long ago i installed a new motherboard, new cpu, new graphics card..... no problems.
recently i installed a new dvd drive and also bought a new case. Now i have noticed i cant enter Bios no matter what i press. Its only after the second lot of upgrades, i.e. the dvd drive and the new pc case that this has happened. Ive tried various keys f2, f1, f3, delete, escape but nothing
the bios message still says press f2 to enter setup but continues to load windows no matter what i press. im stumped!
specs: athlon 3800+ x2 dual core cpu
asrock dual series 939 sata 2 motherboard
dvd drive = ASUS DVD±RW DUAL LAYER 16x6x16x8x DRW-1608P2S
xfx 6800gs xxx gfx card
peripherals (sp?) havent changed, usb keyboard, usb heaphones/mic, 2 usb cellphone connectors, all these are constantly plugged in, prob not relevant but just in case.
any help appreciated, my only thought is to try with a standard keyboard to see if it helps not being usb but i dont own one and it always worked previously just fine when i wanted to enter bios.
thanks in advance
