Cannot access BIOS

When I try to access BIOS(delete key) I get a screen saying "detecting arrays..." and then just sits there. I've cleared the CMOS(gave it overnight) to no avail. ECS technical support is worthless. Any ideas?

Trying to create a server using the ASRock k7vt6 mobo

turns out the RAID enable in the bios is also used to enable the SATA. but this doesn't mean you have to use RAID to use SATA drives! there's a separate bios to configure the RAID that you can access after the initial boot screen by pressing tab. here, you can delete an existing array or create a new one. deleting the array makes the motherboard see both drives separately, like I wanted. problem solved :)

To access the BIOS, reboot the computer and as soon as it starts to boot and shows the inital screen of your moterboard manufacturer press F2 or DELETE key. This key may vary as per the manuacturer of the motherboard.

Bios how to clear

Hi mdgsc,

You don't need to clear the Bios, what you need to do is open the bios, by either the delete key, or F2 key, or when your computer reboots, it should tell you on the first screen what key to push to get into the Bios setup. Once your in there, look for Boot drives, and change your boot drive to first priority your CDROM dirve, so it will look first at your CDROM, prior to your hard drive. That message is because it's looking at the hard drive.

Give a try,

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating based on my solution.

Thanks Mark

Asus cuv-nt from hp in another puter. boots into xp-n-works fine. However cannot get into bios. has phoenix bios 2.0 tried delete key at start up! any suggestions ? roadtramp

Watch the screen carefully while the system starts after you turn on power. At some point there will be a message telling how to access BIOS setup. It's usually on the manufacturer's splash screen or just after, and disappears pretty fast, so you need to be watching for it. It's not always the delete key. I think F10 works on HPs but it can vary. But there will be a message telling you the magic key.

HELP! I can not access "setup" (by pressing the delete key). When I press the delete key it say, "entering setup", then shuts down. I have tried barebones, 1 stick of ram in each of the 4 slots, nothing...

Have you tried clearing the bios? there's a jumper in the motherboard that let's you erase all settings done in the bios and return it to its original state. Some motherboards even include a password erase jumper for the bios. Check your motherboard manual for the location. Just place the jumper in the clear position and return it back. Some motherboards may require you to turn on the pc while in the clear position and then turn them on again in the normal position to perform a through clearing.

If this isn't working you might be dealing with a corrupted bios... data on it might have got altered by a virus or some error. So now it doesn't work as it should.

If you can't boot your PC and enter windows or browse the internet, then you must work from another computer and download a bios image from the manufacturer web page and look for an alternate method of bios update that lets you update your bios from a floppy disk or maybe from a pendrive.

If you can access windows and the only problem is that you can't access bios, then do a bios update through windows directly, downloading the new bios image from the manufacturer's webpage.

Take note some motherboards won't boot up if there's a problem with the CPU fan, to protect the CPU from burning.

I might guess two things: 1. the battery failed (and has been replaced), 2. the motherboard has both SATA and IDE sockets for hard disks and you are using IDE.
If the latter, (and the BIOS settings were lost when the battery went) the BIOS setting would default to SATA hard disks and produce the mesage in the POST screen of, 'The number of disks is not adequate to create a RAID array' and no keys will work in the POST screen except ESC.
Repeatedly press DELETE (on most computers) on start up, ignore the POST screen, and the BIOS settings screen will come up. Check the date and reset, then goto INTERGRATED PERIPHERALS and reset SATA to IDE, save and exit. This cured my problem.
