Question about Intel Motherboard
PS2 AND USB PORTS NOT WORKING. WHEN POWERING UP IT SAYS CMOS NOT CONFIGED CORRECTLY. TELLS ME TO PRESS F1 OR F2 BUT I CANT BECAUSE MY KEYBOARD IS NOT WORKING. WHAT ELSE CAN I TRY?
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..

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 ..

For your problem the computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this may be caused by any of the below reasons.
New hardware has been recently installed
If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS. Enter CMOS setup and save the settings and exit. If you continue to get errors continue to the next step.
Error or confliction with settings in CMOS
If no new hardware has been added or you continue to get this prompt verify no error or conflictions exist in CMOS. Press the key to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct.
If your time and date are not set correctly, your battery is more than likely bad. Try setting the correct time and date, save the settings and then reboot. If after turning off the computer the time and date get reset again replace the battery.
If the time and date are correct and everything else appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults.
If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, your CMOS battery is bad. We recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.
hope this will help you.
