How can I reset my BIOS so that I can use my computer.

Question

Ok i built myself a computer and it WAS workin ok... Here's the story:

Usually, it freezes at reboot, so I thought my power supply was bad, so i'd wiggle it and it eventually starts up right. well, i took it in to clio computers to get that fixed, and it turns out its fine, its not the power supply. so i get home and find out its my usb ports - i can't start up my computer when something is plugged into the usb. so i called clio computers and they told me to enable the usb ports thru the BIOS and now nothing will work (My ps/2 keyboard was working fine on restart) and i can't seem to even get the ps/2 keyboard workin now, so i can't even get back into the BIOS system to undo what i did...

So what do I do??!! I've put alotta money into this thing... PLEASE HELP!

You could the CMOS battery which would reset the CMOS to the default setting and then you could configure the computer again Or you could try putting a jumper on the pins which would cause a short and then reset the CMOS where once again you can then reset your computer.
