How to stop Bios Flash screen from comming up on boot

By jason.d.snell ·
I am building a new machine with a Phoenix Bios V1.5 have done all my updates.
Everytime it starts it does the mobo flash screen then go right to the Bios flash screen.
And across the bottom it says press F1 To continue or Del to enter setup.
And You have to press F1 or it will just sit there. Can't find any setting in the Bios to disable?????? Looking for some help.
Thank you J-Dawg.

I do believe you mean splash screen not flash screen.

The press F1 to continue message generally means that either a BIOS setting is not correct, or the CMOS battery is dead. There should be an additional message that either the configuration has changed, or that there is a problem.

Even if you don't want or need to adjust any of the BIOS settings, you MUST enter BIOS setup and save changes when you first setup a new motherboard. This process allows the BIOS to store the CPU and RAM configuration.

Now, if the CMOS battery is weak or dead, the BIOS looses it's settings whenever the power is fully shut down.

It is also possible that you have a hardware problem or conflict.

Once you have the hardware settings correct, you may be able to bypass the splash screens. On some motherboards, there is an option for quiet boot, or to not show POST. Invoking the option does not speed anything up, just changes the view.

In addition to the above

Enter BIOS and check the Date & Time are correct and then Save on Exit. When you have correctly configured BIOS this screen shouldn't appear. It is appearing now because there is something incorrectly set in BIOS and it is encountering a Problem/Error whatever and needs attention.
