Can't get into BIOS to turn on keyboard function

Gigabyte Pentium 4 Titan Series GA-8ID533 1.1, AWARD BIOS. I was attempting to fix a problem and some how the keyboard function would not work after I changed some BIOS settings. So when I start up puter it repeated goes thru the post test and I can not stop it because keyboard does not work. Help...anybody? I can't even press Ecs key or any F keys. Frequency is 1.7GHz (100x17.0), memory size 128mb and I'm running Win XP Professional, 32. I don't have a rescue disc and don't know how to make one. I do have access to internet with my other puter...and it's running Win XP Professional...so if someone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks Msjay160

    PS/2...I'm using the keyboard right now on this puter and works fine.

    Hey, I didn't think of that. I have BIOS flash procedures and the User Manual GA-8ID533 for the motherboard. I'll try it and get back to you. Thanks

I would suggest either opening up your pc and reseting the bios, either by removing the the flat battery for a couple of mins, or if that doesn't work there may be a jumper or switch you can change that does this. I searched online but was unable to find any instructions for you.

You can either contact Gigabyte direct for instructions or try flashing your bios, both of which you can do from here:-

Take note of the warnings when flashing the bios.

Gigabyte Motherboard wont flash bios


your bios has been corrupted.

The AWARD BIOS has a similar procedure to AMI. To recover an AWARD BIOS you will need to create a bootable floppy diskette and add the desired BIOS file (we recommend using the most recent). Award BIOS's generally are in .BIN format, where as AMI was .ROM format. You will also add an AWARD flash utility (usually awdflash.exe) and an AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

The AWARD BIOS does not automatically restore the BIOS information to the 'system block' like the AMI BIOS does. You will need to add the commands necessary to flash the BIOS in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The system will run the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, which contains the flash instructions.

Note: 12345678.BIN represents the name of your BIOS.

Step by Step:
1. Create a bootable floppy diskette or bootable dos cd /usb drive
2. Copy the BIOS file and flash utility to the disk
3. Create an text file with any standard text editor and add the following lines

@ECHO OFF
awdflash 12345678.BIN /py/sn/f/cc/r

Exchange the awdflash with the name of whatever flash utility you are using, and replace the 12345678.BIN with the name of the BIOS file you are using. The parameters are explained here:

py = program yes
sn = save no
f = flash
cc = clear cmos
r = reboot

Remove disk and restart computer

BIOS problem!!


Why do you want to overclock it? Have you changed the cooling system? Overclocking might fry your processor if the cooling cannot keep up with the heat. Does your motherboard support overclocking? The option might be locked. There might be a jumper on the board that you have to mingle in order to enable that setting.
