Cannot get into BIOS (fast boot already off) after enabling EXPO 1 due to keyboard power

Hi guys,

 

I enabled EXPO 1 so now my ram is running at 5600mhz.

 

When booting my keyboard is turning on exactly when the menu pops up to select DEL to go into BIOS, but then a second later power to the keyboard gets cut again.

Even though I did select DEL for the moment my keyboard was on it still just boots into Windows.

 

I understand it would be best to clear my cmos but surely I should be able to access bios while utilising my higher ram speed under EXPO 1.

 

Any thoughts?

 

My mobo: Gigabyte X670 AORUS ELITE AX Motherboard

 

I tried putting my keyboard in the USB 2.0 ports too just in case.

Boot into windows and hold left shift while clicking on restart. A menu will popup doing the reboot. Navigate the menus until you find the option that will boot you into the UEFI settings.

Have you tried connecting keyboard to different USB port? Preferably one that is not blue (USB3.0), those are instantly getting power so keyboard should turn on immediately when PC is turned on or even stay on without pc being on. (On my MB for example.)
