    Cannot access the BIOS on my Gigabyte H67A- UD3H

    Am now running 10 on the Sandy Bridhge and si far so good but I cannot accesss the BIOS now. Have tried the DEL and F9 keys by tapping and just holding them and then powering up but it just loads to system.
    Oh and I have aslo lost spellcheck to add insult to injury.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Generally, you keep tapping the DEL key (machine gun) while computer is booting up. Don't hold the DEL button. You may have set BIOS to fast boot so it won't give you much warning as to when to press DEL key.
    F9 is for XpressRecovery (on my Gigabyte board) so that shouldn't be of much help.

    If nothing else works you may need to pull the battery on the MB and reset.

    Have you tried spamming the ESC button?

    Windows 10 sets up UEFI which prevents legacy keys from accessing BIOS, you can ONLY enter BIOS from within Windows 10 advanced startup settings, under Settings>Recovery. Which usually stops working after it has been used once, happened to me for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10. Check the tutorials for setting up legacy boot/BIOS, it's a simple command line (forgot it, d'oh!) . Just search "Legacy Bios" and it's easily found. Once you run that, you can use the DEL or ESC key or any Boot Options you had before Windows 10 was installed. You actually have to be holding the DEL or ESC key WHILE you press power-on.

    F8 Advanced Boot Options - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    bcdedit /set {identifier} bootmenupolicy Legacy

    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes

    Those turn it on or off and allow you to get to things like Safe Mode in Windows 8/10
