Ive been gradually morphing the system in my sig for about a year and recently decided to tweak the oc up alittle more after getting a top notch heat sink.

1st boot after changing sink reported Windows file missing so just for the hell of it I entered BIOS and relaxed RAM settings on a hunch and it booted fine.

Everything runs fine, including a 6*C drop in load temps (thats another 6* of clocking then ;] )

EXCEPT: hitting del during startup no longer enters BIOS, it goes straight through to windows.

I have a USB keyboard which I suspect, however I was in the BIOS only 4 hours ago with this kb to change the RAM timings after the 1st unsuccessful boot.

All ive done since the refit is zipped a few big files to check load temps, surfed a bit and gamed for half an hour. At no point did temps rise above 45*C.

Odd...

Just clear the bios with the jumper, boot, make your changes. As far as getting into bios now, it may be that your board just has some quirks to it.

you can't think of an alternative? that sucks. I may sulk for a few days before doing it. Maybe I'll get some inspiration.

sorted. its the USB keyboard. It somehow lost preWindows functioanality at some point, dunno how.

Plugged old kb in to enter BIOS and wallaa an XP2200

unplugged and replugged USB kb and it seems to be fine again on re-recognition (is that a real word?)
