Default Help..accidentally disabled USB..

In an attempt to sort out my mp3 playing connectiing to my pc properly i accidentally turned USB 2.0 controllers off without realising.

Now i have no mouse or keyboard function to get back into BIOS to turn them back on.

Please tell me theres a simple solution to get them back on or reset the BIOS manually ?

That was just TYPICAL. The battery is right behind my 8800GTS .. and then i go to pull it out and it's asif its glued in, i pulled so hard i had to push hard with the other hand onto the mobo, so i didn't snap it.

And then the battery wouldn't even come out, i had to get a screwdriver and lever it out.

But it worked in the end

Thanks guys... now back to getting my Creative Zen working.

Didn't in the end.

Mind my language but this is really ****ing me off now. The mouse and keyboard work through the bios but as soon as the XP loading screen comes on both my mouse and keyboard loose power.

I have enabled my mouse and keyboard and USB in the BIOS.. but like i just said as soon as i get to loading screen it cuts the power from both of them and now im sat here on my parents PC with a crap 4200X2 and 6800GS, it still manages to run quicker than mine however Then again they have nothing on the PC really except work stuff.

Anyway backon topic..

No, i only have USB keyboard and mouse. I've tried changing which usb hub they go into..no success.

I am seriously stressed, this day has just gone from bad to utterly ****.
