    I connected my board via HDMI to my Eyoyo Portable Gaming Monitor 13” inch and held down ESC, no Bios screen!!! Very frustrating since I just purchased this new display.

    I then tried my iduino for Raspberry Pi Display 3.5 inch TFT Touch Screen, 480x320 LCD Monitor and that shows the Bios but when i try to go into any menu, it can't, it just freezes. I can't get into Boot Manager or do anything.

    Now what?

    Assuming your keyboard works, you have to hold the ESC key down pretty much as soon as you power up and keep holding it down until the boot window comes up.

    Try another cable, try another monitor (TV?)

    I cannot enter BIOS at all. Tried different monitors, all 3 video ports & 3 different keyboards (Plugged directly into Udoo, no hub).
    I have tried holding & repeatedly pressing ESC.
    About 30 tries, over the weekend.
    Any solution for this?

    Thank you,
    Ed

    Edit: I have also tried unplugging SATA hard drive & no USB thumbdrives, or any other bootable device.

    Can you be specific about what you experience when holding down the ESC key as you power on the board? Can you boot all the way into the OS while still holding the ESC key down? Or do you just get a black screen? Have you ever been able to enter the BIOS screen, but this has changed after an activity, such as changing settings in the BIOS or updating the BIOS?

    OK, it will boot right into the OS no matter what. ESC held down or rapid pressing. Nothing with SATA disk disconnected, not even a boot error.
    I did set the BIOS splash screen short, but accessible. Now, nothing.
    OS is Windows10 Pro.
    UEFI

    Should I try pulling the CMOS battery?
    Guessing that I will just have to update BIOS & set the settings afterwards?

    Thank you,
    Ed

    Repeatedly pressing Esc as soon as the system is turned on should have worked. Is it a wired or wireless keyboard?

    In version 1.03 of the firmware, a factory reset procedure was added. Initiated by removing the battery.

    Below is an extract from the following page https://www.udoo.org/docs-x86/Hardware_Reference/UEFI_Firmware.html
    You can also restore the factory UEFI BIOS configuration with a simple procedure involving the RTC battery: when the board is NOT connected to any power source, unplug the RTC battery on the bottom side of the board and keep it unplugged for at least 1 minute. Plug the RTC battery again and power up the board, all the configurations should now be reverted to the factory defaults.

    Updating the UEFI BIOS to a newer version will also restore the new factory default configuration.​
