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.
Access you computer's BIOS settings , usually when starting the PC the BIOS will state the Keyboard key to press to enter setting (i.e on a Dell press F2 to enter settings, HP it's F12 etc...) Once within the BIOS settings scroll though the setting and pages and you will an option to "Load Default Settings" , select and Save (you will asked to save any changes on exit, almost all BIOS's Save and Exit setting with the F10 key.
Option 2: Physical Rest of the Computers Motherboard settings:
you need to remove and replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard, this battery looks very similar to a watch battery and usually rate for 10 -15 years battery life, it's role is to trickle fee power to the BasicInput/Output System (BIOS) Chip that all computers contain.
* Acess to the Computer , may require a Phillips Head Screwdriver * A small flat bladed screwdiver or a pair of tweezers * A steady-ish hand !
Open the case and locate the small round silver battery on the motherboard, remove the battery (may require releasing a small srping catch), relax for 3 minutes , replace and when the computer is restarted the BIOS and CMOS setting are at factory default.
Remember you will need to reconfigure you BIOS for :
Time/Date Boot Order and possibly other settings.
This is a situation where the Motherboard Manual can be a useful asset.
Hi, Plug the USB keyboard into another port (preferably one at the back) restart the PC and enter the BIOS again, this time go through the BIOS and set all the USB controllers to enabled, hit F10 save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will restart and you should now be able to use the USB keyboard to install the OS. Please post back if you need anymore advice.
Did you go into the BIOS and set it to recognize the USB Keyboard after you reset the BIOS? Is windows not noticing it or the BIOS. You stated that it recognized the USB keyboard and then said that it did not. What does all of this mean? USB keyboard does not activate "del" setup.
If it does not work, it is because you reset the BIOS and did not change the settings back for the USB keyboard.
try resetting the bios! there is a pin on the motherboard that you remove , then re-install . then restart computer. check the instructions on your new mother board, also could be a bad
keyboard, change out keyboard, try usb keyboard!>>>good luck!
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.
