Can't enter BIOS setup with F2

I can't enter BIOS setup by pressing the F2 key on start-up. F11 works and lets me set the boot order so I know it's not a keyboard problem.

I've also tried clearing CMOS as well. That didn't help.

I've also upgraded the BIOS to the latest version. That didn't help. I still can't enter BIOS setup.

    Yes, sorry I forgot to add that I also verified that the F2 key actually does work.

    To XRAYRON, yes I repeatedly hit F2 as soon as power on. Sorry for not clarifying. I've worked with enough mb that I kind take it for granted as that being the way of getting into the BIOS setup.

    To Danmart, I'll try those tonight after I get home from work. And yes, after posting this yesterday, I tried a different keyboard -- no dice.

    Those alternate key combos didn't work. It also dawned on me that none of the normal POST output is displayed. Might be time for a new motherboard.

    I'm curious if you have pressed F2 over and over and over as soon as you turn the PC on. Like hit power and start hitting F2 I've had a few mobos that would only goto bios like that.

Found this solution online. This suggestion did resolve my problem: " I confirm for my Microsoft Natural Multimedia keyboard. It has an F-lock key at the right of F12. By default, all function keys do the actions Microsoft assigned for them: Help, Undo, Redo, New, Open, Close, Reply, Forward, Send, Spell, Save and Print. If you want them to work as regular F1...F12, you have to enable F-lock after every reboot. Very aggravating. There's a way to swap the function roles in Windows, but F-lock still needs to be enabled at boot time after the keyboard is reset to be able to use F keys normally in BIOS or DOS."

Try using another application that has a use for the F2 key. I'm not totally convinced that your keyboard is good. It is possible for just one key to fail. Happens quite often.

Bios rom checksum error


The CMOS setup has gotten corrupted. This may have happened if the 3 Volt coin battery on the motherboard is low. If your date and time is wrong, that is a clue the battery needs to be replaced.

If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage on the coin battery. It should be 3V. If it's much less that that, it must be replaced.

Whether or not the battery is bad, you will still have to enter SETUP when you boot the computer after replacing the battery. At boot, it usually displays what key to press to enter setup (DELETE, F2, etc. )

There are several menu screens which you must ensure are correct, according to the hardware installed on your computer.

If this is too daunting, take it to a computer repair place, and they can do it for you.

Good luck!

How do you get into the bios on a 785gt-e63 msi motherboard? read the book it said at start up press f1 did not work.


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 want to reformat my computer, my question was how to first boot my cd rom to install...


Start your computer.
When you see the 'Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP mode", press the 'DEL' key.
Change the "boot-order" to put your CD-ROM as the "first" (highest-priority) boot-device.
Save-and-exit from BIOS setup.
Insert the disk into the CD-ROM.
Your computer should boot from the disk in the CD-ROM.
