    Z690 Apex - can't enter BIOS using DEL or F2

    Hi folks,

    I recently bought an ASUS Z690 Apex with an i9 12900K. My problem is, I can't enter the BIOS. When I installed the CPU I was in there once by pressing F2. But now my keyboard, connected to USB, does not have any power before Windows is loaded. Is there any way to get into the BIOS now?

    Nevermind, found a workaround by connecting the montior with HDMI to the GPU.

    I had exactly the same problem (can't enter BIOS with monitors connected to DP; just goes straight to Windows).
    This is what helped me:
