Default Motherboard doesnt detect keyboard

I just put a new motherboard, its a K8M800-M7A for AMD. I power on my computer and it tells me That I need to configure some settings for the new motherboard, however my Keyboard indicator lights dont go off and my Keyboard doesnt work. It is connected into a PS/2 port on the back. I already tried 2 different keyboards. Any advice?

Clear CMOS, try USB keyboard, try USB to PS/2 converter on one of the keyboards.

Try it with motherboard outside of the case.

I'm trying to clear the CMOS settings. When I look at it, my CMOS setting is already set on clear, and I havent changed it at all. Should I try to clear it anyways? Here are pictures of the CMOS on the motherboard and what it says in the manual.

I cleared the CMOS, but it didnt say anything once I turned it on, just the same message it always says about changing settings. Anything else I should try?

Looks like the Cmos pin came improperly seated. Set the pin to normal operation and try that.
