    it's a timing issue - press F1 at boot time. right after power up but before windows logo. some BIOS options can hide system setup request from being displayed.

    I have 22yrs exp maybe I can help for a small fee

As soon as you turn on the computer start tapping (not fast, but steady) the F1 key, you could try F2, DEL, and other various keys that work on other boards.

Usually the screen will show you what to press in the corner or somewhere on the screen.

F12 for boot / F2 for BIOS / etc
Or it might say Press F1 or F2 or something to enter Set-up.

You have to catch it before the computer starts to boot into your operating system.

At this point you can push the power button for half a second and the computer should turn off instantly as you have not started booting up the computer.
Then you can try another key to enter the BIOS.

After locating the manual and skimming through it, I see that it states you need to press the DEL key to enter setup (BIOS).

Hopefully that helps.

    I missed the first reply before posting my reply.
    I thought i would add that I have 15 years experience and I wouldn't charge a fee for what I just shared.

    Always glad to help someone in need when I am pretty sure I have a simple answer.

I changed the battery on motherboard, it started and showed "checksum error press F1 to continue" pressed F1 everything ok, set up the time, date then restart the system, it is working but there...

You should press Delete to access the BIOS setting.
First you need to change the time setting.
Then you must change the Boot sequence from Removable Device to HDD where your first boot device will be your HDD which is where your Operating system is installed and the next thing your system will seek after the POST.

Hope this helps. Any vote is highly appreciated. Thanks =)

Every time I on my PC it appears in screen unknown bios error. error code 8302 press f1 to resume

You need to flash your bios before it becomes totally corrupted. You are losing small bits of information that your motherboard needs to continue functioning.
I have what i believe is the proper page for your bios, but your exact model doesn't show up when I search the site, so the best solution for your problem is the MSI live bios update located at the bottom of this webpage:

Simply install that and allow it to automatically fix your bios for you.

UnKnow Bios error Error Code =8302 Sr, Computer Opening No Display ....F1 Press Continue Display Ok

Hi, this can be caused by a BIOS update or a faulty motherboard battery. You can reset BIOS to default settings by pressing the F1 key during bootup, which will take you to the BIOS screen.

Can not enter bios. first time starting this board up. when it starts it gos strait to the msi screen. it tells me to press delete to enter bios. when I do nothing hapens. looks like it does not want to...

The MSI screen will hide the memory count - you need to disable the loading screen to see the memory count.

Are you using a USB keyboard? USB is initialised in the BIOS, so it may not read USB devices the first time. Try using an older style PS/2 keyboard - that should work by default.
