JACUSTOMER-nat9c9ee- :

The F2 did not work either.

JACUSTOMER-nat9c9ee- :

Went strait to enter bios password screen

Kalyan Kovi :

just do the all steps

Kalyan Kovi :

then tell me what happens

JACUSTOMER-nat9c9ee- :

It will not go to a different screen. Goes strait to the black and blue screen to enter BIOS password.

JACUSTOMER-nat9c9ee- :

Right now I am at the blue and black screen that says enter Bios password.

JACUSTOMER-nat9c9ee- :

The AVIO screen and this screen are the only screens I can get to. The F2 and F3 keys do nothing.

Kalyan Kovi :

I've found a few that will ask for a password but as it turns out there is none. You just hit enter with it blank.

Kalyan Kovi :

to reset it is to clear it with the CLR_CMOS jumper/pins on the motherboard.

Kalyan Kovi :

Another way would be to reflash the bios
