You can look at the battery to see what one you need. I think most modern boards require a CR 2032, but check yours just to be sure.

I bought a lenovo all-in-one pc at auction, the problem is the usb ports are locked on the bios, therefore i am not able to access my bios settings because usb ports are not detecting a keyboard

Some possibilities-
If there is a keyboard socket (mini-din), buy a cheap wired keyboard.
There is often a button on the motherboard that will reset the BIOS to default.
If there is a small battery on the motherboard, disconnect for a minute or so, and re-connect. This may reset the BIOS.

When i shut off computer, time and date reverts to 2003 , new battery etc when turned back on msi ms 7235 ver 1.1

There is not a lot of info, but I'm gonna go with the choice of a laptop, since you say "new battery". There is also another battery in the motherboard, also, you need to set the date from within the BIOS, if you don't set it from the BIOS it will always revert back to the date of manufacture.

How do I reset the Bios in my PC?

If you can get into the BIOS setup there maybe a setting to restore the BIOS to the default settings.
If not then remove the BIOS battery for approx 20 mins until the charge in the BIOS has depleted and the replace the BIOS battery. Then go into the BIOS setting and set the Date and Time etc.

The USB and ps/2 ports are not working on power up. the keyboard and mouse are not recognized on boot up. The PC boots as normal to the desktop with no problems. All was working fine until i started...

I assume you have by now taken out the sound blaster card, I hope. The beeping is a code that tells you what the problem(s) are with your computer. Just taking out the sound card will be a start. If you had an onboard sound card and did not disable it first, then that is what started your problem. Try booting up and pressing F10 to get to the set up screen. make sure your ps/2 and usb are turned on. if you can't get it to work on your usb keyboard, borrow an old one and do the same thing. hopefully nothing permanent has been done. your bios should straighten back out. if this does not work with the old style keyboard, then open your case, you will have to find the reset jumper, very hard to find unless you have the board manual, or just lucky. Not able to do that, then find the backup battery, will look like a watch battery. Take it out carefully and leave it out for couple of minutes, reinstall and should be good to go. pulling the battery erases all your settings and returns it to bare stock settings..... let me know if more come up

Laptop will not keep current date/time

The BIOS battery is nearly flat and this is causing the time to drift.
Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then you will need go into the BIOS configuration to set the date and time.

Boot up failure

It's possible you are using a USB keyboard and it is not being detected. You should be able to turn the caps lock light on and off if it is working. Try a ps2 keyboard.
