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.
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.
