Pavilion 8662C won't POST

I was trying to resolve a problem with a USB web cam by disabling the integrated USB ports and a third party USB card (doesn't matter which, I haven't gotten that far yet). As a first step, I went into the BIOS and disabled USB1, USB2 and Legacy USB. Now when I reboot, the system hangs during the POST right after "System Configuration Data Updated". Pressing F1 before this point, results in "Entering Setup" at the bottom of the screen, but the system still locks up and will not proceed to Setup. Seems I need to hardware reset the BIOS settings. Is there a reset jumper somewhere? Any help would be appreciated.
