I tried to access the BIOS settings for my desktop yesterday but cannot. Upon reboot, I press the F10 key and a black screen appear with just a cursor blinking on the upper left hand corner of the screen. It just stay on that screen forever until I press the power button to turn off the machine. However - I am able to access the Boot Menu screen by pressing the ESC key after reboot. Does anyone know how I can get into my BIOS setting? Thanks.

Have you tried to Flash the BIOS with the latest version?

I have the exact same problem. Nothing works. If you remove the battery, will work for a couple of days. Believe it's a bad memory, but cannot get to boot from the CD to read memtest86. How can you flash the cmos if you cannot logon ?

I stumbled across this post as I had the same issue a while back. I posted my solution here: http://www.gregorystrike.com/2011/11/16/cant-acces
It was basically related to the video card that I was using.
