Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

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 messing around with a sound blaster card and upon turn off one time the above fail happened. Now when i switch on the PC I can hear a beeping noise which I'm guessing is a fail code or something. I'm guessing it's a bios fail but if I'm unable to use keyboard or mouse i cant really do anything..bios


Answers :

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

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen. I tried a different video card. Nothing. I connected to an external monitor. Nothing. I have heard of a lot of problems with this model, but never about the video socket on the motherboard. Is there anything else I could try?
