Hello!
I just built a new computer and the motherboard I bought has tons of fancy BIOS features that I want to look at! The problem is I can't enter my BIOS. :) The screen that says "Press _______ to enter BIOS" flashes by so fast I'm not sure what to press! I tries F2, but it didn't work. Could somebody help me out?

By the way the motherboard I'm using is a P7P55 WS Supercomputer.


Thanks!

it's usually either f2 or del

also, if you're using a wireless keyboard, try a wired keyboard.

Common BIOS keys:

F1, F2, F10, DEL. Very rare to find anything else now.
Just cycle through them all as the machine is booting.

Also the appropriate keypress should be documented in the manual.

Press <Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility

This is found in section 3.2 in Your Manual
