That would be a hard question to answer. Were you able to get into your BIOS by tapping on the Delete key?

I tried hooking up a different monitor that isn't HDMI and I still can't get it to boot to BIOS by consistently hitting the DEL key. Any suggestions what to do next?

What USB port is your keyboard hooked to? Is it one on a USB Card, one at the front of your PC or in another place?

Your motherboard probably doesn't see USB 3.0 so make sure your keyboard is plugged into the rear Black 2.0 USB port.
Their should be two of them.
Their are also two Blue USB ports on the back of your computer. Don't use them for now.

If you have a Ps/2 keyboard that should work also.

Instead of pressing the Delete key try tapping on it quickly to get into the bios.

Do you have the motherboard manual??

You might need it for instruction to use the jumper method to reset the bios to default.
I have experience loss of power messing up the bios and reset to default solved the problem.

I have the mouse/keyboard plugged into the rear. The motherboard is MSI A75MA-G55. I downloaded the manual. There are instructions with this information:

JUMPER: Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1

There is a CMOS RAM onboard that has a power supply from an external battery to
keep the data of system configuration. With the CMOS RAM, the system can automatically
boot OS every time it is turned on. If you want to clear the system configuration,
set the jumper to clear data.


Is this what I need to do, set the jumper to clear data?

OKAY!!! I got it to boot to BIOS by taking the battery out for about a minute and turning it on. Now I have questions that likely go under a different topic about how to add the hard drive that has data on it from the previous installation of Windows on the SSD that crashed. For now, I am installing Windows on the SSD.

Somewhere in the section it should say something about setting bios to default.

You would not want to completed clear the bios that would cause serious damage.

I read every page of the manual and could not find anything about setting BIOS to default. It seems that what I did do caused the system to boot to BIOS but after connecting my hard drive it is not recognized in the boot sequence of BIOS, but is listed on the MAIN page under SATA Port4 as WDC WD1003FZEX (1000.2GB). How do I get it to show in the boot list. I would like to access my files on it, or format it if necessary. Also, before connecting the hard drive the details of my CD/DVD was listed on the boot sequence page and now it isn't listed in detail.

Update on BIOS: On the BOOT page when I click on Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities another page comes up with this listed: 1st Boot SATA: Samsung SSD 2nd Boot: SATA: WDC

Wonder why this isn't showing up on the previous page? Maybe I need to update the BIOS by downloading the latest update? Not sure.

Put your old HDD in and see if you can boot from that before you do anything to the BIOS. If it won't boot, what are you seeing when trying to boot?
