Entering BIOS Setup at startup
To enter BIOS Setup at startup:
Press <Delete> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST). If you do not press <Delete>,
POST continues with its routines.
Entering BIOS Setup after POST
To enter BIOS Setup after POST, do any of the following:
Press <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Delete> simultaneously.
Press the reset button on the system chassis.
Press the power button to turn the system off then turn it back on. Do this option only if
you failed to enter BIOS Setup using the first two options.
Using the power button, reset button, or the <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<Del> keys to force
reset from a running operating system can cause damage to your data or system. We
recommend to always shut-down the system properly from the operating system.
The BIOS setup screens shown in this section are for reference purposes only, and
may not exactly match what you see on your screen.
Ensure that a USB mouse is connected to your motherboard if you want to use the
mouse to control the BIOS setup program.

the Load Default Settings item under the Exit Menu. See section 4.8 Exit Menu.
If the system fails to boot after changing any BIOS setting, try to clear the CMOS and
reset the motherboard to the default value. Refer to section 3.4 MemOK! Switch on
how to erase the RTC RAM.
The BIOS setup program does not support the bluetooth devices.
