frantically try to turn off numpad
after a couple of taps, the numpad light finally goes off and then i spam delete
asus logo appears on the screen with instructions
numpad light turns back on
goes into UEFI

anyhows, GL!
The thing is, by the time the num lock turns on, it already passes that "press del to bios screen". XD But I'll try to delay that longer maybe and try again. THANKS~

Your trick works~ that default 3 second post delay wasn't enough for me to turn off the num lock, had to set it to delay for 5 second so i'll have to time turn it off and hit del key :D now I can get into bios with it YAAAY THANKS LOT!
