Can't access bios

  SantasLittleHelper 12:22 08 Sep 2005

Hi All, I have just finished building a new computer, installed up to now are MSI KT6 Delta motherboard (AMI bios), AMD Athlon 3200+ processor, 1Gb PC3200 ram, 120GB Maxtor IDE hard drive, ATI AGP Radeon 9500 128MB Graphics. My problem is that when I try to enter the bios setup, the setup screen appears and I can select any of the setup options using the up or down arrow key but when I hit enter to select the option it just gives a long beeping sound and the system freezes, I have to power off to stop it. Any ideas very welcome. p.s. this is the third system I have built, but never come across this before.

i recently had the same problem with a foxconn problem was solved by updating the bios before doing this however it may be worth trying to contact msi tech support click here

you haven't got the clear cmos jumper on the wrong pins? I had one doing this and the manual said default was clear it had been set to on.

Hi, found problem, believe it or not it was because I had a usb mouse, replaced it with a PS2 mouse and all o.k. Thanks for your suggestions.
