DarthFK Thanks @deepor ! Was on the phone, as I am moving into another apartment. Will re-write right away from a laptop:

Sorry everyone whom I didn't reply to previously - was away and then moved to another apartment. Still navigating between boxes As I said earlier I will leave this thread soon. Anyway, before that:

@pel , what's the exact model of the board, BIOS revision and CPU?

P.S. i might reply only sporadically due to the move-in.

deepor @DarthFK : You might want to know that there's a terrible bug right now on overclock.net when people are posting with a smartphone browser. For people browsing with a desktop PC, in your post the "s" and "S" letters disappear and are replaced by strange codes "& # 1 1 5 ;" and "& # 8 3 ;", making things very hard to read. This only shows up for people using desktop browsers, you can't see it on the smartphone.

You can check out the problem on your smartphone as well if you choose "show desktop site" in your browser's menu. You'll then see the same broken text that's showing up on a desktop browser.

PauliePeanuts When i look in system info, it says my bios is legacy mode.. Is that something I should change? I got it to work by resetting the bios with the jumper , Im not sure what happened. I was always able to get into the bios using the F2 key.. I might have shut off legacy USB in bios, maybe that is what disabled it? Not sure. It seems to be working now after the CMOS clear with the jumper.. I see USB legacy is now enabled by default.. I think someone recommended i turned that off to help trouble shoot some issues with my VR headset.

Try shutdown /r /f /t 0 /fw at the command prompt, or if you are using an asrock mobo download restart2uefi from their website

Do you actually use UEFI boot or do you use "Legacy" = "BIOS" boot? If you don't use UEFI there's no such option to reboot into the UEFI/BIOS menus in Windows. You know that you use UEFI boot if you can see a 100MB sized partition with a text "EFI System" in the Disk Management tool in Windows.

If you do use UEFI, this kind of thing is caused by enabling a "fast boot" option somewhere in the UEFI/BIOS menus. At boot it will then not look for the keyboard and will instead go into Windows immediately. There should be a way to make the UEFI/BIOS boot with its default, slower mode where it will look for the keyboard. I don't know how to trigger this, but what I would try is disconnecting power for the whole PC for something like ten seconds.

If you do not use UEFI, then maybe your problem is that the UEFI/BIOS can't detect your keyboard at boot. Did you change something about that recently? Like, are you using a different keyboard? Or did you connect it to a different USB port? I've seen motherboards where only PS/2 keyboard were guaranteed to work, and USB keyboard were often problematic, especially gaming stuff with "n-key roll-over" over USB.

This keyboard problem idea could of course also hit you when using UEFI boot, so the keyboard not being detected is always something to think about.

PauliePeanuts Thanks man. Good luck in all your future endeavors. It's always a good thing when you're looking to advance instead of looking for where to begin lol.

cheers

I bought a new video card and overclocked it using the MSI afterburner and i did get some blue screen crashes from it. But I think it has stabilized.. I think the computer is running pretty good. I got a 96 score overall on userbenchmark. (processor 92 / GPU 109).. Im thinking of purchasing a VR headset like the Odyssey plus... I think this computer can handle it. What do you think? Thanks again for your help just wanted to update you since you spent a lot of time helping me.
Hope this message finds you well
Thanks for the update[IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG] The thread always goes up & down in terms of activity, but surely is less active with the passage of time. Life[IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]

I am not the best person to advise you on the VR. I have no clue about it. But apparently the minimum requirements on both Oculus & Odyssey+ are an i5-4560. In case of Odyssey any VGA for Standard WMR & a 1060 or 480/580 for Ultimate. Since you have an i5-3570k very nicely overclocked, you actually either meet or exceed the mere next gen i5-4560 requirement, I think. But this is my uninformed opinion.

As to myself, I am getting pretty busy these days in search of the next step in my professional life, which hopefully will come sooner rather than later[IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG] Occasionally though, I get a break for a line on this forum & a game [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]))

Hope you are ok? Wishing you best!
