Having Windows 10! automatically upgraded the computer Operating System (OS) you find your ASUS Motherboard has become inaccessible due to no mouse or keyboard controls. You may also find your BIOS/UEFI is inaccessible or refuses to start.

First, if you have ASUS AI Suite versions 2 or 3 when Windows 10 installed and ASUS had USB+ power controlled app, then Windows 10 on starting disables all USB 2 and 3 ports. Only solution is crash the computer 2 or 3 times whilst Windows 10 is loading the basic system; I did this by holding down the power on button for more than 6 seconds. after the computer tries to reboot the third (3) time it should start with an accessible screen asking for the user to input a decision how to reboot.
Two Options; 1. start in safe mode and hack ASUS AI Suite by manually uninstalling the program. 2. Revert to Windows 7 and uninstall AI Suite correctly.

Second, if you cannot access BIOS/UEFI, it is because Windows 10 loaded something into the motherboard active memory; to recover switch off or remove mains power and wait until BIOS goes to battery backup; about 5 minutes. If you have additional graphics cards like I have, switch off power until the LED's on the cards go out. Then switch mains power back on and you should be able to access the BIOS/UEFI with the delete key before Windows 10 logo starts.
