If you’re having trouble getting your computer to POST usually referred to as not booting up , you’ll need to enter the BIOS to change some settings or diagnose beep codes. Just to verify, I went back and selected “Shut down” instead of “Restart”. Open the case and identify the CMOS battery — it is like a big hearing-aid battery. If this does not work you can branch the the CMOS reset connectors on the motherboard. I found the tool by googling for my motherboards name, visiting it’s site, going to the download section if it doesn’t take you there automatically then go to Utility section. Check with your motherboard manufacturer if you’re looking to upgrade the BIOS.

Try powering it off, then hold the power button to turn it on. It disables USB communication to speed up the boot process to Windows. Except for the fact that this does not apply to Windows 7, this is a somewhat valid answer.

Maarten 1 9. That was very clever! I had this exact same problem.
Burgi – I wanted to ask the same question – What OS are you using? If it beeps while holding it, let go and hopefully that’ll throw it into the BIOS. I restarted my PC many times and wasn’t able to see something about that.
It was very frustrating, the solution now I know the answer is fairly straight forward, if you refer to your manual you will see for the bios to function via keyboard and mouse only specific usb ports will work. I also tried DelEsc and even more.
Make sure you and the computer are grounded and protected from static, as static can be very damaging, even fatal, to your delicate components.
Turn off the computer. Now, while holding that key downbuos on the computer. Pressing “Delete” on the keyboard on start up will enter Bios mode.
