Can't enter BIOS


TS Rookie
Hi, I have a custom pc, and I am trying to turn of the automatic fan control (so I can use speedfan to control the fan speeds). to do this, I need to enter the BIOS, but I cant.

when I boot, my pc tells me to press DEL to enter bios, and I do, and... nothing

cue 10 , minutes restarting and mashing the hell out of my keyboard. still nothing.

I dont have a fn key to press, its a standard keyboard, no special bios, just the standard asus bootscreen.

any help?!?

What kind of bios you have is it AMI BIOS, AWARD BIOS, PHOENIX BIOS ETC, try pressing f2 button..

I've had that trouble. For me it was the USB keyboard. For some reason or other it's not detected on startup. I used a wired keyboard and it worked.

Try entering your your bios after a complete shutdown of windows. Then restarting windows. Some PC will not boot into the bios on just a restart of windows.

I also think that using the USB keyboard often becomes troublesome as it is not detected.Try using a PS\2 keyboard as it will solve your problem.
