Default Can't enter Bios of Albatron PX875P pro


Please help me somone, I cant enter the bios of my new rig, here's the main specs;

Albatron PX875P Pro
P4 3Ghz 800 fsb
1 Gb Corsair Twin XMS PC3200
ATI 9800 Pro
2 WD Raptors in Raid 0
550 w Antec PSU
Mach II

When I press delete it says entering setup and then a large white rectangle appears on the right of the screen and thats it, it just stays like that. If I leave it to boot without trying to enter the bios the system runs fine, it boots up into windows, no problems.

I've tried 3 different graphics cards, 2 PSUs, 3 cases, 3 different types of ram, and left out all the non essential things but the same problem occurs. I even tried flashing the bios with the latest version but nothing.

I think its something to do with the onboard monitoring of the subzero temps because I can enter the bios fine when I don't phase change cool the CPU.

Can someone please, please help me with this problem. I know this configuration will work as the magazine Custom PC in the UK are running exactly this motherboard with Prometeia Mach II cooling.

Thanks in advance,

can't you disable the monitoring in bios ?
(it's possible on the P4C800).

or use a second PSU, and start the computer when the Mach II isn't sub zero.

Disconnect all non essetial fans, and connect all others directly to the PSU.
I've seen something similar with an abit motherboard.

After many hours of messing about trying to get into the bios custom PC magazine confirmed my suspicions, the bios on this board cannot handle the monitoring of sub zero temps, it causes it to hang when trying to enter it.
