Question about Motherboards
No need to reset your BIOS to enter BIOS editing mode.
You'll need a keyboard that plugs directly into the keyboard port, not a USB keyboard. The USB keyboard does not function until later in the boot process and therefore doesn't send the DEL keypress signals when needed at initial boot-up.
Using a direct-plug keyboard, keep tapping the DEL key while your computer is booting up and it should catch the keypress at the appropriate time and enter BIOS editing mode. This way you don't have to get a single keystroke timed precisely to open the BIOS editor. If the computer starts beeping at you, don't worry about that. It's just telling you that you've filled up the keyboard buffer with DEL keypresses which is the intent.
Hope this helps, and please rate my answer.

Tips for a great answer:
You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values (hopefully against a recent hardware or software change
If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.
If you don't know the settings you should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.
In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time
Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date.
Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.
Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
hope this helps you
