Windows 7: Bios Access

I have the same MB and am having the same problem. Oddly enough, CTRL+ALT+DEL will restart the BIOS process, I just can't get into the BIOS with the Delete key.

Try removing CMOS battery, than boot up.

This would erase all bios and saved bios profiles. Which in my case would screw my RAID array.

I just powered down, unplug power supply, change keyboards USB port, wait a couple of minutes, power up and boot to bios with delete key normally.

Good to GO!

Thanks for the input, folks.

I figure (as in "hope and pray") that a BIOS reset would do it, just don't want to have to reset every last dohickey there is. I don't have a RAID array to worry about.

I'd do that, but can't understand why if CTRL+ALT+DEL works that a simple press of the Delete key doesn't register. I tried unplugging the keyboard and am about to restart the computer.

Here's hoping...

Had to exchange it yesterday.
