January 10, 2021 at 03:58:22
Specs: Windows 7
I have an issue with my motherboard. My PC BIOS won't open even after trying all the stuff. I have Foxin FMB- G31 Motherboard.
Anybody, please help. If I try to open my BIOS then after pressing the BIOS key the pc won't respond the motherboard screen turns into black and then monitor shutes and it doesn't use any resources as well
Thank You

Hit the pause button during boot & take a photo of the first black screen you see.
Upload the photo ( check the quality first ) to Imgur & give us the link.

in the first video link which you provided, the first method which he told to confirm the bios key which I have confirmed many times and confirmed again this time.
his second method was to turn off fast boot, have a windows 7 pc(not laptop) so that option won't appear on my pc. and to turn on and off pc asap boot that also didn't seem to work.
his third method was to remove the CMOS battery which I have tried a couple of times but it didn't seem to work
and in the second video, he had done all in windows 10. as you know that I am using windows 7 (can you find one for windows 7)
so, these vids didn't help me

Try disconnecting all drives, mouse, printer, keyboard & booting into the bios.

"CMOS battery which I have tried a couple of times"
Did you leave it out for a couple of minutes?

I'm off to bed. Catch up in the morning.

I never heard of FOXIN motherboards before & it doesn't appear they have a website. My guess is it's made by another motherboard manufacturer & they put a FOXIN name on it. There's a bunch of identical boards available under different brand names. Here's the same motherboard being sold as Zebronics.
https://zebronics.com/products/zeb-...
Here's one on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/263210470492

Are you sure you know the proper key to enter the BIOS? DEL is very common but F1, F2, F10, or ESC are sometimes used. F9 is almost always for the boot menu. Many Intel boards use F2.

By removing the CMOS battery, you reset the BIOS to its defaults & possibly disabled USB keyboard support. If you're using a USB keyboard, switch to a true PS/2 keyboard. Completely shut down the PC then start it again, immediately begin tapping the DEL key. If that doesn't do it, shutdown & start again, this time tapping the F2 key. Many boards display a quick message on the screen during bootup, something like "press DEL to enter setup" or "press F2 to enter setup". If you're able to get into the BIOS, adjust the date/time & run thru every menu option & adjust as needed. Hopefully you're familiar with the settings.

Your problems are listed right on the screen. You have no keyboard attached, no drives installed, & the proper key to access the BIOS is DEL.

"And also i don't have any plans for buying a new motherboard now"

No one is suggesting you buy a new board, however, the one you're working with is based on outdated technology. The LGA775 socket, Intel G31 chipset, & DDR2 RAM were all retired many years ago.

riider is correct. When you cleared the CMOS you wiped out the setting to enable legacy devices at startup (keyboard).

Connect a PS/2 keyboard and as soon as you stat the computer start continuously tapping the Delete key. Once in the BIOS screens you can enable legacy devices at startup. You will need to reset many other settings, such as time and date.

Remove 1 stick of ram/memory & see if you can get into the bios.
Swap memory & test again with only 1 stick installed.

Borrow one.
Also, if you have to, borrow an USB keyboard & test.

Those screenshots clearly show that the key to press to start the
BIOS setup program is DEL, not F1. You press F1 to continue the
boot to Windows.

If resetting the BIOS did make your computer unable to recognize
your USB keyboard, then pressing a key during boot should have
no effect at all on what happens. So if the computer definitely
responds in some way to a keypress, this is not the problem.

You say that the monitor turns off when you press F1. It sounds
to me like Windows starts loading and changes the video settings
so that the video is no longer sent to the monitor. The monitor is
no longer getting a signal, and turns off. You may need to use a
different way of connecting the monitor to the computer, or you
may just need to select a different input/source in the monitor's
on-screen settings.

You need to get a PS/2 keyboard. Not a wired USB keyboard, not a wireless USB keyboard, not a USB keyboard with a USB-to-PS/2 adapter. You need a true PS/2 keyboard.

DhanrajPriyadarshi,

Do you know for sure that the computer does not respond
at all to the USB keyboard before Windows loads?

Does the motherboard have a PS/2 connector?
The link provided by OtheHill in reply #19 has only
one image of the motherboard, and I can't tell if there is a
PS/2 connector. It doesn't say in the meager technical
specifications. It does seem likely, though.

Cute "review".

You were told back in #18 & #19 what your problem was. You need to borrow or buy a PS/2 keyboard. You shouldn't have cleared the CMOS settings. Motherboards of your vintage did not recognize USB keyboards by default.

Is your motherboard damaged with water?
If so then it might be the reason that you are unable to access the BIOS.
Try it with the new keyboard as it arrives and let us know.

I expect that Naheed meant "keyboard", not "motherboard".

Or was that too obvious for me to point out?

While I'm pointing out the obvious, I suppose I could go
even further and point out that Johnw's reply #34
was answering my question, not asking one.

So I'll ask another question that doesn't contribute to solving the
problem: Is Foxin made by Foxcon? I just noticed that the MB in
the old, secondhand desktop Dell Vostro I recently acquired is a
Foxcon product.

The link I posted to the board showed pricing in what I think is Indian currency. The name Foxin could be Fox india.

Yeah, I noticed what I guessed was the Rupee symbol.
So maybe Foxin is an Indian ripoff of the name Foxcon
from China, which is prolly a ripoff from American English,
which is a ripoff from British English, which ...
