So i finally got the new gamer built, it posted and gave me the happy one beep, problem is it wont recognize my keyboard and i cant press

delete to enter the bios. My motherboard is a Gigabyte 990fxa-ud5. I thought the rear usb ports are already connected to the board so i

don't think i missed a connection there, the keyboard works cause im using it to type this. I could really use some advice here...im stumped     :bashhead:

Hello Desertryder

 

Have you tried F2 or any of the other F keys.

 

Do you have a PS/2 keyboard that you can use to configure the boot order and check that the USB ports are enabled.

 

Also worth trying is pulling the CMOS battery for a few minutes and then replacing it.

Ive tried all the keys, none work. I will come up with a PS/2 keyboard and try that.

What about pulling the CMOS battery, have you tried the front USB ports (if there are any that is)

The PS/2 keyboard did the trick, thank you very much for the help, and yes taking a break from computer issues is always good advice.
