Won't read keyboard


usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

My USB is disabled on BIOS. I cannot use my keyboard/mouse (usb) when the computer start. I have no access to my BIOS due my motherboard has no PS2 keyboard connection. How to get access to my BIOS...


Hello

Reseting of your motherboard is the only solution for that problem. All you have to do is clear the CMOs battery of your motherboard. Turn off your computer then remove from the power plug or to a AC plug. Then remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard after five second return the CMOS battery to the motherboard. Plug in your computer to a AC power then power on the unit, then push delete while booting up now you can change the setting of your USB setting on the BIOS.

Hope this solution will help you.Keep on touch. Have a nice day and best regards

Hi,

are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

I can't install vista any mouse or keyboard detected


Often times this happens when using a USB keyboard / Mouse.

Or when using a USB keyboard through a PS/2 Converter.

Try using a PS/2 Keyboard if available
(Small Round connector with a small amount of pins, similar to a S-Video connector.)

Also. Access your BIOS settings and assure that you have Legacy USB keyboard support.
Depending on your computer the BIOS / Setup Menu / Options Menu/ Etc. can be accessed by pressing the following key during boot:
F1
F2
ESC
DEL
F12


Let us know your setup(KB and Mouse Port type), and if you have any other issues.

Good luck

Dell XPS 400 no power to usb


Cant remember the exact location for this, but you need to access the CMOS config when starting up. Dig around a little and you will find the settings that will allow you to start you system with a usb mouse and keyboard.
Hope this helps. If you have any idea where I can get drivers for my motherboard (EPoX EP-4PDA5) that would be great. I already tried EPOX's website, and no joy.

Cheers
