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.
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.
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.
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
That's the 2nd time i hear that kind of problem. Your mboard battery is new, and you did not press "f1" at first start.
so i guess , the cmos time is not change, try go to the bios setup and load "bios setup default." after that change the time setting on the bios. please find time setting and set it with a current ime in your area. after setting press 'F10" to save and exit the setting, the system will restart.
hi,i presume that u cannot punch in the password as the keyboard is not working, except the Enter key, u can do two things, reset the bios, or repair the keyboard, by removing it and cleaning the contacts, to reset the BIOS, locate the small lethium battery, remove it and keep it outside for some time, then put it back,that will reset the BIOS.. try either of it.. let me know...
