How do I enter bios without keyboard?

December 1, 2017 at 22:00:21
Specs: Windows 8.1 pro, 6gb
I have disable my legacy usb config on the chipset section of my bios. I've been trial and erroring my computer since when on start up it didnt read my keyboard on mouse. When it is in the bios it reads. So i try disable and enabling the usb onfiguration in the advanced section. Now that I disabled some things in the chipset section, I can't now access in my bios and it beeps 5 times. So how do I enter bios without keyboard? Considering that I accidentaly disabled the legacy etc etc in the chipset section?

Then you will have to check if your PC has the old type of round keyboard port known as PS/2 -- usually two of them side by side on the back panel, near the top -- green port for mouse, purple port for keyboard.

If your PC does have PS/2 ports, then buy a PS/2 keyboard from Amazon for example.

Don't be duped in to using a USB-PS/2 adapter plug 'cos they rarely work on keyboards.

You need a native PS/2 keyboard (ie no adapter required).

Unplug the PC from the AC.
Remove the battery on the motherboard for a minute.
Reinsert and check again if you can use your keyboard.

Using the method in #2 will reset the BIOS to it's default settings which should restore legacy USB. The 5 beeps is a whole different issue. I suspect you've done something else that you're not telling us. Depending on which BIOS you have (AMI, Award, Phoenix, etc), 5 beeps can mean different things. If it's 5 short beeps with no pauses or mix of short & long beeps, it's possible that you fried the processor. Another possibility is a keyboard error. What is the make/model of the computer or motherboard?

To clarify what phil22 said about using a USB-PS/2 adapter plug:
Such an adapter will work on a keyboard that is designed to be able
to use one. Many keyboards are, but even more are not. The fact that
the USB plug fits the adapter isn't enough. You might be able to find
specifications for your USB keyboard online which say whether it can
also use a PS/2 port with an adapter.

Of course, used or even new keyboards are almost as cheap as an
adapter.
