Pressing the F2 Bios key on bootup doesn't work on my desktop board dh57dd

Community Manager

Is there another way to enter the bios on this board or to launch the F10 Boot Disk option? I want to reinstall the operating system on the board but an unable to access either of the boards options.

Sure it does; you likely aren't doing it properly. After powering on (or resetting), immediately (I mean immediately; don't wait for BIOS to display anything) begin hitting the F2 key rapidly over and over and over (i.e. don't just press and hold the F2 key; this doesn't work).

If you want to force it into BIOS Setup, you can do so by (with system powered off) moving the BIOS configuration jumper from the 1-2 pins to the 2-3 pins. This will cause the system to come up in Maintenance Mode.

Hope this helps,
