Hello I have the GIGABYTE B365M DS3H [non wifi model]

And I have been trying to open the BIOS and it's not working. I Have checked and I DO NOT have fast boot enabled 

I have tried the f2 f5 f7 f10 f12 and delete keys and it seems to delay the startup!

 

Please help!

 

Spoiler

If you curious what my specs are they are intel core i5. 16gb 1x16 of Ryzen ram. Gtx 1030.

To enter the BIOS, normally its the Delete key once you see the splash screen. There is an alternative way to enter the UEFI.

 

Hold Shift and restart your computer and a menu will pop up. You will select Troubleshoot > Advanced > UEFI and this will restart your PC and automatically enter your BIOS.

Move your keyboard to a USB 2.0 port. Could be the usb 3 ports are not initialized in bios, or the bios doesn't look for keyboards in the usb 3 ports.

 

Could be the bios has an issue with all usb keyboards. It happens sometimes. Could try with a PS/2 keyboard, if the motherboard still has the connector.

The PS/2 keyboard is more legacy, more low level, will pretty much always work and it's also a good way of figuring if bios functions ( ex if you press num lock on the keyboard, and the num lock turns on, you know the system isn't locked/frozen and that something still does some thinking, because that something send the ps/2 keyboard the command to turn on the led - with usb keyboards you have no guarantee, the controllers inside the keyboard will turn on the led without a command from the computer)

That doesn't work either!

its not always DEL to open the BIOS. for my work computer its F12, some computers its ESC, I've had some over the years that was like F9 or some shit. How i figured out my work computer was power off and spam one key at a time till the BIOS opened, started with DEL, then ESC because those are the most common. then went through the F keys from 1 to 12 and naturally it was the last one i tried. but yeah just trial and error spam the key till one works.

The thing is that I do not want to in-valid my warranty on my new pc because I think it is under my graphics card
