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 ..

thank you
bye any doubts you can reply me

please rate my solution
have a nice day

Hi names Rui,


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.

  1. New hardware has been recently installed.
  2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
  3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:

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.


CMOS battery is bad or failing

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.

you need to go to cmos or bios setup, set all the date and time and proper boot setting there save and exit, it is a cmos or bios failure that causes these problems try replacing the cmos battery if the message still continues

Dell XPS 400 no power to usb


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.

Cheers

MY LAPTOP(hp compaq presario v2000)BEEPS TWICE AND DISPLAYS PRESS F1 TO RESUME OR F2 TO SETUP!pls help


Hi, and welcome to FixYa
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 issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
1. New hardware has been recently installed.
2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:
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.

Error or confliction with settings in CMOS
If no new hardware has been added to the computer or the new hardware has been removed and you continue to receive the error, it is likely that there is an error or confliction with the CMOS. Press the key requested to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct. If everything appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults and/or Reset Configuration Data. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000976.
If all settings appear to be correct, save changes and exit CMOS setup. If the error continues to appear, enter setup again and restore all CMOS values to default.
· See our CMOS page for additional help and information with the CMOS.
· Additional information about getting into the CMOS / BIOS setup can be found on document CH000192.
CMOS battery is bad or failing
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, it is also possible that the CMOS battery may be bad or failing. Generally; when this occurs, the computer is not holding the time or date correctly. If this is occurring it is recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.

Press the ESC key during startup. You should then see a message telling you to press F1. Do so. This will load the Bios settings screens.
