The heading say's it guys...

 

At what stage after I boot should the keyboard and mouse start? When I switch on my PC I get this screen...

 

AMERICAN MEGATRENDS

AMIBIOS © 2011 American Megatrtends Inc.

ASUS P8H61-M LE/USB3 ACPI BIOS Revision 4501

CPU: Intel ® Core ™ i7-2600K

CPU @ 3.40GHz SPEED: 3400MHz

 

Total Memory: 16384MB (DDR3-1333)

 

USB Devices Total: 0 Drive, 0 Keyboard, 0 Mouse, 5 Hubs

 

Detected ATA/ATAPI Devices...

SATA3G_1: WDC WD5000AAKX-001CA0

SATA3G_2: WDC WD10EZEX-08RKKA0

SATAG_3: ATAPI iHAS5224 B

 

NO Keyboard Detected

Press F1 to run SETUP     

 

How am I supposed to do this, if there is no keyboard detected? 

 

My keyboard and mouse don't kick in until just after I see the 'Starting Windows (animated flag screen)'. Which isn't much good, if I want to enter the BIOS!

If your keyboard is connected via usb switch to the ps2 port (do this when the system is OFF) and boot. Enter the bios and look for a setting that says "usb at boot" or something similar. Enable that option, save the change and reboot. Shut down the system and switch the keyboard back to usb (or, if you prefer, you can leave it connected to the ps2 port)

Hi Allan

 

So what you are saying is that I should buy a USB to PS2 Port adapter?

If you can't reach the BIOS settings, no other way....

Its because BIOS searches for keyboard at ps/2 port during POST... An outdated procedure in this modern world.... :(

Oh well, if that's the only way, so be it. I've sent for one on Ebay, it was less than a pound (£) including post.

 

Although the thing is, I've had this PC for about 3 years and the keyboard has always been connected via USB. So why now is it looking for the keyboard at the PS2 Port?

Are you saying this never happened before or is it possible you simply never noticed it? If you're sure it's a new problem, try a different usb port

That's correct, it's only been doing this for about 3 weeks. I have tried other USB ports.

It's possible the battery on your motherboard needs to be replaced. Try that. But even if that's the cause you may still need the adapter to get into bios and make that one change if the bios has been reset due to a failed battery.

I changed the battery this last weekend, because I noticed that the clock was wrong.

Then that's the problem. The bios was reset to default because of the dead battery. You'll need to get the adapter, enter bios, and make the change to the usb on boot setting.

What do you mean, when you say...

 

"Then that's the problem" ?

 

I've already told you that I've been having this problem for around 3 weeks?

Here's what it sounds like to me: At some point when your battery was dying and the power was off to the system your bios reset to default. That certainly could have been 3 weeks ago. But either you didn't notice the system time was wrong until recently or the system time wasn't affected until recently. Either way, you now need to go into bios and make that change. Is it possible I'm mistaken? Sure - nothing is 100% and I don't have your computer in front of me. But based on everything you've said I'm fairly comfortable that I'm correct.

OK then, if that's the case, if it had happened plus 6 months ago? Would or could it have caused this...

 

As of about 6 months ago in the morning, when I turned on my PC sometimes the monitor would say...'No Signal Detected' and then the monitor would go on stand by. The only way I could/can get it to start is to unplug the monitor from my...NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Graphics Card and instead plug the monitor into the onboard, integrated Intel Graphics Card. Then it will start almost like normal.

 

I posted the problem on here and there were many suggestions as to the cause and equally as many suggestions to fix it. I tried the fixes, but to no avail. It's still the same.

No, that is a signal issue between your display and the display adapter. Could be a bad card, bad cable, bad display, etc. It would not be related to the mobo battery.

Fair enough. One of the suggestions was to get another GPU, but I haven't done it yet. The reason being, it would cost more than I can afford at present.

 

Hopefully tomorrow the USB to PS2 Port will arrive and all will be crystal. I'll let you know then.
