BIOS not showing

I want to access my bios as i want to install a new ssd (as i want to have the OS on it) so i want to get use to the bios so i know where to go when the day comes (as i need to change boot order). But i have tried to access the BIOS many times trying every key but it dosent show up. After spamming F12 i noticed on my phone that when i slowed it down BIOS did appear for a split second but then disappread. So they do come up but so quick you cant see them. I need this fixed ASAP as SSD is on its way.

My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3

  1. LOL. You rocking that AM3+ action. Nice. I had that exact same motherboard when I had an AMD system running an 8320E.

    Anywho, are you using windows 8 by any chance?

    If so here is your fix:

  3. There is a fast boot option in windows 10 as well. this will help you to locate it and see if it is enabled.

    You can also perform a clear CMOS.
    In case you don't know how there is a part on the motherboard that has three pins two of which are covered by a little plastic thing called the "jumper"
    You just move this jumper over so that you are trading 1 pin for the other that isn't covered. then you boot then you shut down and put it back.

    In the instance that you don't have a little plastic jumper you can use a screw driver to make two of the pins connect with one another to cause a "jump". Just be extremely careful not to accidentally bend, break or gouge something with the screw driver.

  4. I've rested the CMOS many times but it never work. I finally found a fix by unplugging my keyboard and replugging it in the top left USB port. This seemed to fix it so maybe the port that it was in (that works) wasn't at a high priority level.
