Well, it seams that I have got this again! I cannot access the BIOS with F2 or any other way! Nor can I access the Boot Menu! I was able to re-flash the bios (650) back to (650)
I had this problem before for like 2 days I don't know what I did to fix it, but it was running really slow and almost all the memory was reserved! Then on a reboot it was just fine/!?!!?!?!??!!?
I could not access the BIOS with F2 or the Boot Menu with F10. The Bios jumper doesn't do anything ( but did work when I took it all the way out. and continuously hit the F7
with flash drive attached! and I re-flashed the same bios hoping that the NVram would clear. ha the battery out even and it updated! after it said reboot I put jumper back and the battery back
still the same :-( I am on my 4th day of no computer. I have done all of the recommendations such as remove all but one piece of Ram, took sound card out, reseated the video card
So please can somebody give Me a little help or advise? Thank You in advance!

Hello DaneBurdick ,
Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.
I am sorry to hear you are having issues to access the BIOS on your Intel® Desktop Board. Can you please provide the following information to better assist you?
- Does the system freeze at any moment during POST?
- Are you using a wireless keyboard/mouse? If yes, please try with a wired keyboard.
- Have you tried to access the BIOS through the recovery options in Windows® 10? Recovery Options > Advanced Startup click "Restart Now" > Troubleshoot > Advanced options > UEFI Firmware Settings.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Can you please remove all memory sticks and let me know if you hear 3 beeps?
If you hear 3 beeps, it means that the processor is being detected by the motherboard and the problem might be related to the memory slots on the board or to the memory sticks.
As for the name, it is how the system recognizes you as a user.
This new Mother Board is doing the same damn thing! I took out all the ram and only put in one stick!
b2b, jumper pin, F2,F7,F10, all fail it just keeps booting what ever is there!
with the last mobo My main disk wouldn't boot the BCD was corrupted or something
now at least I can boot to windows but it show 29.0 GB assigned to "Hardware Reserved"
and only 3 GB available !
On the back panel of your board, at the far left, there is a "Back-to-BIOS" button. With the system powered off, engage this button. When you power on, this button should light up and the system should automatically enter BIOS Setup (i.e., no F2 necessary). Once there, use F9 (followed by 'Y') to load the default BIOS configuration over the current. This should remove this strange memory configuration. You can then make any changes to the configuration (boot order, etc.) that you absolutely need. Then, use F10 (followed by 'Y') to exit from BIOS Setup with a save of the current configuration.
Hope this helps,
