I'm having a problem getting into my bios. No matter how fast I press delete the ASUS screen appears for a moment (usually with a black box in the middle) and then I get sent into the windows boot mode thing which I think normally shows up if you press delete after the bios screen.
When I first installed windows I didn't have this problem, then it started to happen occasionally, now it happens EVERY time. I'm using a Logitech wireless keyboard. In order to get into the bios I have to unplug the USB wireless adapter for the keyboard, turn on the computer, and the moment the ASUS screen appears, I quickly plug it in and hit delete before the ASUS screen disappears. So when I turn the computer on and the keyboard is not plugged in the ASUS screen stays on slightly longer and it doesn't have the black box in the middle of the screen.
When the keyboard is plugged in the ASUS screen flashes for less than a second. I assume unplugging the keyboard works because it hangs for a moment "looking" for a keyboard that it cant find, and if I plug it in and then press delete before it goes to the error screen saying no keyboard, I can get into the bios. So the problem isn't that it doesn't recognize my keyboard, and the battery for the keyboard seems fine.
And I'm definitely pressing delete fast enough, I'm practically smashing it from the moment I press restart on the computer. Its getting really frustrating. Any ideas of what I can do to resolve this? All the usb modes in the bios are set to enabled. And what's up with the black box that I see in the middle of the bios screen when the keyboard is plugged in? Edited by Italianguy - 6/21/12 at 7:17am
