DX79SR help

Jump to solution

I have got a problem with getting into the BIOS with the F2 key. I get a message on the screen press ctrl + m to enter bios setup or space to continue. When I do this it enters the marvell controller bios not the mobo bios. No key that I have found enters the bios anymore. I have pressed all the F keys and the only one that does anything is the F5 key it launches the windows 8 diagnostic program. As said in the title this is for the desktopboard DX79SR version G57199 - 200 any help would be great. I didn't have any problems getting into the Bios till I installed the harddrive that needed to use the controller.

Hello,

Please try the following recommendations:

- Press F2 several times before boot up to try to access the BIOS. Go to boot tab> boot menu type and ensure "display F2 to enter set up" is enabled.

- You can also use the configuration jumper to enter in configuration mode (page 59):

- Test with the back to BIOS bottom on the motherboard back panel.

Hi,

Try this:

from a powered off state, hold the power button until it beeps 3 times. Let go of the button. The machine will restart, and prompt for F2, F7, etc.

You might find that fast boot is enabled in the BIOS.
