    For some reason no one suggested the obvious so far.

    It is very likely that your computer actually successfully enters the BIOS, but you simply can't see it on any of your monitors, since BIOS output goes somewhere else. Which graphics subsystem is used by default before OS boots is usually controlled inside BIOS settings.

    Firstly, as you yourself guessed, without a shred of doubt, the first thing to do would be to disconnect all monitors except one.

    Secondly, connect that one remaining monitor to the most "basic" video connector in your system. If your motherboard has integrated video - try that one first. If it doesn't work - try other outputs one by one.

    Doing this brings up this screen: Click image for larger version.

    I am not sure how I then get into the bios from there. Start up settings doesn't seem to have anything relevant.

    I have not tried this. Where is that button I see a reset button below the power button on the motherboard itself near the top (where the number/letter light is), is that the button your talking about. I think its not because I thought that was just a normal reset button.

If you hear the beep but not the Asus Startup screen, start tapping the key after you hear the beep.
    I do not hear a post beep or the asus start screen.

    Thanks for the help guys, I appreciate it. Hope I can fix this.

    Just tried this, used the DVI monitor and disconnected the rest, same issue. If I leave it alone it boots into windows 10 quickly with no problems on just 1 monitor. If I hold del or tap it, it will just go to a state where the PC is on, the code on the motherboard is 'A0' which is the normal code when the pc is in windows. And there is nothing on the display and the monitor basically says its getting no output to it if you try to turn it on from sleep.

    Also my system has no on board video card. Only SLI gtx 670s. All monitors are connected to 1 card. I wonder if disabling SLI then trying this would fix the problem?

    Ok I got in the bios, I had to move my HDMI monitor connection to the top SLI'd card, then i turned off SLI and then I could see the asus splash screen prompt and where it said press del to start.

    Ok at least one problem solved, now to move on to the other problems.

    Thanks guys!
