Hi, This motherboard has this feature. You may have to manually open or short 2 pins of the front panel connector in the motherboard located at the bottom/lower right. This is better illustrated at page 33 of the manual which is available at the Asus website. Hope this works for you. Good luck and kind regards.

Won't start bios at start up

Disconnect everything but the RAM, Video and Keyboard and see if it will boot to BIOS. If it does let the BIOS boot remove the RAM and see if that allows BIOS to come up. If it doesn't there is a problem with the Motherboard. If it does with the RAM removed you have incorrect RAM installed or too much.

Try to light the display with a use of flashlight, if you see a deemed display in your LCD monitor it means the inverter of your monitor have a problem try to check the Inverter circuit in your board or try to press camlock key on your keyboard, if the light goes on and off it means your motherboard is booting normally.

It's likely a bad keyboard- try using either an usb keyboard or another ps2 keyboard- if it works and boots normally with a different keyboard, the issue was the bad keyboard. If not, then the ps2 port has gone bad. (you could still use usb)

You may have the number lock enabled, try pressing the number lock to unlock it when attempting to type. If that doesnt work then the cable connected from the keyboard to the motherboard may be loose or you may need a new keyboard.

Want to change priorities of boot in BIOS

This link is for the owners manual on that board,

On page 47 it states F2 is used to get into the bios, press repeatedly while booting so you don't miss the window, and of course check you keyboard, it should flash the caps,num, and scroll lock lights on boot.

Hope this helps
