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.

The flat metal terminal bars MUST be aligned back in the SAME position, as they were originally. For this reason you may wish to take a Sharpee marker, and make a mark on one side of the cable. Then make a matching mark on the same side of the motherboard connector, BEFORE you remove the cable.
The motherboard connector is a type of ZIF connector. Zero Insertion Force. It is composed of two pieces, but does NOT come completely apart!
The bottom part is larger, rectangular shaped, and is stationary to the motherboard. It is the BODY.
The upper part is smaller, rectangular shaped, and is movable. It is the Locking Bar.
ACCORDING to the video the Locking Bar is the Slide/Wedge type.
DO NOT use a metal tool as shown. One slip, and you can damage the motherboard! Geez!
Use your Fingernails, or Thumbnails.
The Locking Bar slides up. Up towards the LCD screen, or away from the Body. It ONLY moves about 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
IF, the Locking Bar is broken, or the Body, you are looking at -> MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT!!
Hence why I am being so detailed.
More detail on unlocking this type of motherboard ZIF connector,
are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.
when booting hit f11fast and over and over til the setup options starts or f2 for the bios to pop up and route though til ya find the keyboard options ok if locked unlock or enable it, it is in one or the other or upon boot hit R many times til the recovery tool pops up and then do a HD error diagnostic on it to find the problem ok the fixist good luck and have a nice day
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.
