Question about Computers & Internet
I cannot load Windows because my new build will not go any further than the AsRock splash screen. It will not recognize the keyboard nor will it read from the optical drive and I cannot get the motherboard CMOS or BIOS to reset by either taking out the battery or jumper'ing it
Check that your new build PC is connected properly. Also make sure that the RAM is seated properly and that it is the correct type and speed.

AFAIK splash screens are generally controlled in your CMOS settings, you'll need to hit DEL on POST (Power On Self Test) alternatively called a 'boot up' to access your CMOS panel.

You need to go into the bios and select the primary boot drive to be the optical drive. You can usually enter bios by repeatedly hiiting the delete key or F2 when you power up.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

SOURCE: Where is the CMOS reset
I am not sure you have the exact model I do, but the battery is on the underside of the motherboard - you must undo the four silver screws holding the board down, and also two screws to remove the front plate. Pull the board up and out, and you will see the battery underneath.
