Won't let me access my bios

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Whenever I restart my computer and hit the delete key to access the bios on my Asus Crosshair V Formula, all it does is freeze. My computer works fine, it just doesn't let me access the bios. Does anyone know what could be wrong with it?


Specs:
Asus Crosshair V Formula
AMD Phenom II x2 555 BE(Getting a bulldozer soon)
Sapphire ATI Radeon 5770 1gb
4 gigs of G.Skill DDR3 1600
Seagate 500 gigabyte hard drive

Possibly corrupted BIOS? I feel like it wouldn't work at all, but I've heard of stranger things.

I think you can flash a new BIOS without actually needing to boot into it. I would read the manual and see if you can.

I think this is an asus specific problem, My p67 board runs into the same problem. What helps is unplugging the whole board 24pin and 8pin. Then hitting the power buttion a few times eventually you can sneak in. I waisted around an hour last night messing with this. Super frustrating. Clear cmos was not workiing properly either. Ive been pretty rough on my board though.
