    Maximus IX Formula stuck on A2. Please help.


    My PC had been working fine since early 2017. Recently Intel updated their Optane support so one can accelerate a secondary HDD on a Z270 platform with Kaby Lake CPU. I installed the Optane accelerator and updated the BIOS so it supports it.

    I managed to set Optane up this afternoon and it worked fine. I was able to restart the PC etc. Later at night I hibernated the PC but it someone turned itself back on (maybe the mouse moved). But when it did, the motherboard was stuck on A2. I can’t enter the BIOS as pressing DEL or F2 doesn’t work.*

    Everything was working fine up until then. What should I try next??

    My primary OS drive is an M.2 NVMe installed in Slot 1. Optane is in Slot 2. The secondary drives are all SATA. I also have a Blu Ray writer connected to SATA Port 6.

    On the monitor the display is stuck at the point it says press DEL or F2 to enter BIOS.

    Thanks in advance.*
