Hello all,
I made this account because i was desperate for answers.
My motherboards´ (stated above) USB ports aren't working. I have Windows 7 64bit installed on a 120gb ssd. When I boot a black screen saying Asus with small writing under it saying Please press Delete or F2 to continue to UEFI BIOS page or something. But this isnt the problem. The USB ports at the back of the Mobo dont seem to work as the LED's on my keyboard (Logitech K120) dont seem to light up. I also tried my brother keyboard and that doesnt seem to work either. I tried all the combinations with my mouse and keyboard in different USB ports. Nothing. I cant continue to WIndows becuse they dont work. It worked the first few times then it just stopped working. I turned it on and off several times and it still appears unresponsive. Please i need help desperately. I need to know because this was my Christmas present from my family and I really want to play on it!

Hi:) 
Sorry to hear of your problems. It sounds as if a bios setting may have been changed to not allow a USB keyboard.
If this is the case try resetting your CMOS. I will give you instructions on the easy way to do this.

1. remove the mains power lead going into the back of your computer.

2. remove the side panel so you can see the motherboard

3. remove the small battery which looks like a small coin from the motherboard



4. press the power button on your computer. it won't power on but this will clear any remaining power from the capacitors

5.replace the battery back into your motherboard

6. replace the mains power lead going into the back of your computer

7. turn your computer on.

Please try this and post back here to let me know if it has resolved your problem:)

Hi, Try clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for few minutes or use the CLRTC jumper. Then test the black or red ports.
Edit: already answered.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply.
I tried this and the black screen saying to press F2 to continue to the UEFI BIOS is still there. I will try again but anyway, thanks for the response.

The bios screen should be there at the start, it should then disappear and then windows should load.

If you can get into the bios you should check and make sure all your components are listed.
Did you make this computer or buy it?

Also do you know anyone with a ps2 keyboard to try with it?
If you don't did you get an USB to PS2 converter plug with your keyboard like this one?
