The solution is apperantly simple: you go in BIOS and reset to default all the settings....The problem is with the KEYBOARD...try to find another 2 keyboards..one with ps2 and one with usb...or as a last resort try replacing the ps2 port from the motherboard..

Re: not booting up
On the motherboard you will be having the 2032 CMOS battery cell remove that and replace that after 5 or 10 mins or put the battery cell new one and after that try booting your system then you will get the CMOS error after that try setting your CMOS if your keyboard works and save it and then exit the error will not come up again .. if you are unable to identify the CMOS battery just refer to your motherboard manual it will be clearly mentioned where it is located ..
if you still couldnt able work with the keyboard then this may be due to 2 causes 1) The BIOS might have got corrupted .. if so then change the BIOS jumper to recovery mode. to change to recovery mode just you can refer to the motherboard manual it will be mentioned more clearly how to do it ... once you do this the keyboard will work..
2) The capacitor near by the ports might have dead so due to that you might not get the power supply to the ports in the motherboard ..
if the capacitor is dead then you must visit the motherboard technician and get it replaced ..
thank you bye any doubts you can reply me i am always here to assist you please rate my solution have a nice day

hallo there, tried the DEL key? (instead of the F2, some Bios of them use older input for F2, DEL sends same key. )
Also, please count how many short, how many long beeps mopbo gives when booting. Also: try to connect with PS2 keyboard. Possible no correct keyboard connection or even worse, when its a wireless keyboard need tyo pair keyboard with receiver first. Also possible: is the keyboard not IBM compatible? As said: try first to use default PS2 keyboard, theyre cheap and most of the times problem is directly solved. If that does not solve your problem, count the beep codes and tell us please, could be some other problem, ( wrong memory, memory not placed correct, voltage problems etc etc etc) the bios codes would help us to help you fasst.
Try going to the setup and loading the default values. If this does not solve your problem its time to change your CMOS battery. Turn your system off. Open your case. You will find a coin like component. That is your CMOS battery remove it and replace it with a new one. When booting for the first time after replacing the battery,enter the correct date and time.
Try another keyboard if at all possible. Port sill not working?
You can bypass the PS2 port for your key board. You'll need to buy a PS2 to USB Y cable. Places like Best Buy have them. Here is a picture of the cable;
Hope you find this helpful.
Often times this happens when using a USB keyboard / Mouse.
Or when using a USB keyboard through a PS/2 Converter.
Try using a PS/2 Keyboard if available (Small Round connector with a small amount of pins, similar to a S-Video connector.)
Also. Access your BIOS settings and assure that you have Legacy USB keyboard support. Depending on your computer the BIOS / Setup Menu / Options Menu/ Etc. can be accessed by pressing the following key during boot: F1 F2 ESC DEL F12
Let us know your setup(KB and Mouse Port type), and if you have any other issues.
Cant remember the exact location for this, but you need to access the CMOS config when starting up. Dig around a little and you will find the settings that will allow you to start you system with a usb mouse and keyboard. Hope this helps. If you have any idea where I can get drivers for my motherboard (EPoX EP-4PDA5) that would be great. I already tried EPOX's website, and no joy.
go to the CMOS setup of your motherboard. to do it turn on your computer, and it will display in your screen to press a certain key such as del or f1 or f10 key to access the CMOS setup. once inside the CMOS setup, look for the enable USB controller. enable the USB controller then waaala. your USB controller is now working.
