Need to reset Asus k7v bios

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

    I really appreciate the assistance you guys provide. I feel like I have some support here!! Removing the battery did not change the contents of the BIOS... the USB's were still disabled. HOWEVER, on page 61 of the manual it's written, "Forgot the Password?" in the BIOS section... it explains about shorting the CLRTC solder pins (not a jumper) on the motherboard to reset the password in the BIOS. It turns out, it resets the whole BIOS!!!!!!!!!!! The USB ports work now. Thanks you guys!!!

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:
You'll find the cmos location on page 14. You'll also need Adobe PDF reader to view the manual. Download Adobe from here;
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.

Good lucl lmscorp!
Thank you for using fixya

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!

Freezes on the press del to enter setup screen

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.

P5n-e sli usb ports error 43

You get this error code if there is an issue with the drivers.

Look here:

Here is the homepage:

Please select your windows system.

You probably need to download the chipset driver.

Open the folder, and click on global for download.

Unzip the file before you install the driver.

Look also in the bios setup, for the usb settings.
Try also to download the manual.
Try also to upgrade the bios.

Hope this will help you

Supermicro SuperServer 5013G-M - PS2 error

Hello here is the homepage:

Is your Mouse a USB mouse or is it a HYBRID Mouse? Look at the bottom of mouse and see what is written. It should give you the: (1-) Name (2-) Model Number & it will either say: "USB Mouse" or "USB 2.0 and PS2 Compatible". If it is USB 2.0 and PS2 Compatible, then it is a HYBRID MOUSE - You should have a - USB to PS2 - Adapter that came with the mouse.

Use that adapter and plug into the PS2 Mouse port - (only if it is a HYBRID). It will automatically configure itself as a PS2 mouse. Now you will have both your Input devices set as PS2.

(2) - If it is a USB mouse, can you obtain a PS2 mouse to temporarily use? If you can; try using the PS2 Mouse Port?

Now you may have to set BIOS on - with regard to:
(1) - Legacy USB Support -(Either Support or Disable)
(2) - USB settings to what Motherboard supports

Try also to upgrade the drivers/bios, if nessesary.


Good luck

Could be a problem with your system BIOS, enter the setup while your computer is booting (before it gets to windows) by hitting the F12 key probably. Make sure that the boot order is HDD first, not something else.

Asus P4p800 se Mainboard USb Ports not working

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

hope this helps

kind regards

Probem with Asus P5W DH waking back up

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
