I have a Asus k7v motherboard with disfunctional mouse/kybd inputs. My son disabled usb support in bios. Is there a way to reset the bios back to factory settings without needing an input device? Thanks

Re: Need to reset Asus k7v bios
Hi lmscorp, to clear the cmos/bios find the cmos battery which is to the right of the main ATX 20-pin power connector & near right edge of the motherboard. Just above the, CHA_FAN, (Chassis 3-pin Fan connector). You can download the manual directly from Asus. Click on this link: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=K7V&SLanguage=en-us You'll find the cmos location on page 14. You'll also need Adobe PDF reader to view the manual. Download Adobe from here; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ The manual does not show a clear shot of the cmos jumpers. You may need to remove the battery completely for 10 seconds. While the battery is out check its voltage. If it measures under 3volts replace it.

Re: Need to reset Asus k7v bios
Yes, if you consult your motherboard manual this will show you the location of the cmos battery and reset jumpers. You can either move the jumpers from pins 1+2 to 2+3 and then back again after a few seconds or remove the cmos battery for a few seconds. Make sure your pc is off!

If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard then the most likely problem is a failed USB controller on the motherboard. And as your motherboard is old and was never very popular you will be hard pushed to find a replacement. Although you could try fitting a PCI USB card to use your input devices. It looks as if you will need a new motherboard, processor and RAM.
Sounds like it is trying to treat the mouse as a boot device. Check the bois under boot devices and try to disable booting from USB. If this works, and you need to boot from a USB device at times, go back into the bios and re-enable boot from USB. Then change your boot order.
Hope this helps
Hi, If your mouse is wireless go back into the bios and make sure that all USB devices are enabled, hit F10, save the changes and exit the bios and try again. If it still won't activate the OS you may need a PS/2 mouse (wired with green plug on the end) although these days you shouldn't. Please keep me informed as to your progress and if you need anymore assistance.
hi buudy first of all
1 just check whether the usb setting shows in ur bios enable it if it shows disable
2 start the pc go to device manager in my computer enable the usb device
3 to check whether it is enable plug any usb devices (keyboard , mouse etc ) if key,mouse starts than it is okayyyyyyy
it would seem that you are not the only one with this problem with the USB's, the only soloution i have found that people say works is to reset the cmos (remove motherboard battery without any power cord attached) for 10 mins, or, go into the bios and reset to default/optomised defaults
Do you have a modem plugged into phone line - is a signal on phone line causing it (unplug phone line cable to try that). Could be faulty power switch on front of computer where the contacts are only a hairs breadth apart and the slightest movement/vibration causes it to contact (try this by disconnecting those two wires from the motherboard
I'd try disconnectng any communication cables from the computer first. That would be LAN and Modem cables. If it still restarts, disconnect the keyboard and power down the PC. If it still restarts, then power down again before it is fully off, remove the mouse. If it still does it get a priest to do an exorcism
really it depends on your budget and your wants , if your a serious gamer i recomend pentium its good with the graphix rendering but if your a office and media person AMD is for you very quick with converting too! thanx please return the favour with a posetive rating
