Bios Access

using Delete key to enter bios will not work today. I was in 2 days ago. I changed nothing, why will not not allow me in now?

I would try a PS/2 keyboard. You may need an update to the BIOS

USB will sometimes not get detected for some reason. It may work to unplug it and plug it back in.

Good luck

Is your keyboard responding on boot? If not, and it is working normally when you are actually in your OS, then you may need to check the USB legacy settings in your BIOS. This is usually enabled by default, so if it has been disabled you will need to reset the BIOS to its defaults (or use a PS/2 keyboard) to enable this option. If your keyboard has a USB-PS/2 adapter, use that. If not, then follow the instructions below.

Try removing and replacing the battery (small round CR2032 type). When doing so, leave it out for about 5 mins before replacing it. This should reset the BIOS to its defaults, so you will need to correct the time and date and also adjust any other settings that have been reset. Alternatively, use the motherboard jumper (see the manual for details).

Did you by chance reset your BIOS using the jumper?

On many systems removing that jumper prevents BIOS access, as an anti-tampering measure.

Check the jumper is on the right pins and properly in place...

That still doesn't confirm the jumper is correctly installed... does it?

It seems powering down and then turning off PS for a mo, releases the Boot Manager, and then bios access is achieved.
