Question about EliteGroup P965T-A Motherboard
I'm trying to access the BIOS to change the device startp-up so I can do a fresh Windows Install from CD.
Upon powering the machine I get the "Press DEL to enter startup" message but it doesn't work. I have tried F1, F5, F8, F10, F11 and even a a second keyboard and still nothing. What can I do ?
Have you tried using a PS/2 keyboard? Or the other way around, a USB keyboard.
Additionally you can try doing a reset on the motherboard by temporarily relocating the jumper on the CMOS reset pins (JP1 close to the Lithium battery) from 2-3 to 1-2 for a couple of seconds then back. Normally, once performed, the motherboard on the next boot will revert to default and auto request a CMOS setup. Alternately you can also temporarily remove the battery for about 15 minutes.
If the USB and/or PS/2 KB nor the CMOS reset does not allow you to enter the BIOS setup, perhaps you need to return the board for replacement since this is indicative of MB failure.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
