You replaced the CMOS battery, enabled the USB keyboard and mouse in the BIOS, and reset the date and time and the keyboard setting still wouldn't remain enabled in the BIOS?

Thanks for your help on this topic. I am having the same problem. The mouse and keyboard stopped working. I rebooted and the computer hung and an alarm buzzed until I unpluged the key board.I took the battery out and it tests fine on a meter. My question is, if the keyboard and mouse won't work because it needs to be enabled in bios how do you select anything if they are not enabled? I will try a new battery and key board but the fact the mouse and key board died makes me think it is not them. Thanks again ~Zane

Testing the voltage of a battery without a load on it will not give you an accurate reading. It may show the normal voltage for the battery, but with a load on it the battery may fall below usable voltage. I would replace the batteries.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
