Why keyboard is not typing on bios?

Unfortunately, many even relatively modern BIOSes don't allow use of USB keyboards. (That's why these things have drivers in Windows.)

See if you can borrow someone's old PS2 keyboard (nothing to do with PlayStation) and plug that in.

You might be lucky and have a BIOS that does support this, so look through the various settings, but might be quicker to find your original keyboard.

No key board in bios

Try hooking up a USB keyboard and seeing if it works.

If it does work, the keyboard on the laptop may need to be replaced, but I would first check if the cables are plugged in securely.

This can be tedious to do, but the cabling for laptop keyboards are very finicky, and the slightest bump while installing a keyboard can dislodge the connection enough that you might get this error message.

If this is the case when you try to boot the PC completely the POST process may stop saying it cannot detect a keyboard.

If you mean specifically that the keyboard doesn't work while in the BIOS, but works everywhere else such as in windows.

You may need to install a BIOS update for the laptop mainboard.

Checking the manufacturer's site for the most recent BIOS update might fix the no keyboard in BIOS issue.

BIOS updates are not for the faint of heart, they sometimes can be intimidating to do; And you will want to take some caution when doing so.

New system. Cannot enter bios with F2 key, apparently keyboard is not working, but works well in another computer. I tried bios switches 1_2 default and 2_3. With 1_2 it goes directly to PXE_E61 error,...

hallo there, tried the DEL key? (instead of the F2, some Bios of them use older input for F2, DEL sends same key. )
Also, please count how many short, how many long beeps mopbo gives when booting.
Also: try to connect with PS2 keyboard. Possible no correct keyboard connection or even worse, when its a wireless keyboard need tyo pair keyboard with receiver first.
Also possible: is the keyboard not IBM compatible?
As said: try first to use default PS2 keyboard, theyre cheap and most of the times problem is directly solved.
If that does not solve your problem, count the beep codes and tell us please, could be some other problem, ( wrong memory, memory not placed correct, voltage problems etc etc etc)
the bios codes would help us to help you fasst.

My keyboard is not working . after i upgrade my laptop to windows 7

The operating system does not have direct access to the keyboard, this is handled by a keyboard controller chip on the motherboard (so that it can be controlled by the BIOS). If the keyboard works before Windows 7 is loaded then there is no hardware fault. If the keyboard does not work at all, even before Windows is loaded then you need to check the connection of the keyboard to the motherboard. If it is a problem only within Windows 7 then try an external USB keyboard. If this works then there may be a driver problem.
There may also be some setting in the BIOS, so use an external keyboard if necessary and get into the BIOS to check all the settings there.
Check online for a BIOS update for your laptop.

USB Keyboard will not access BIOS.

Hi there.
Get the PS/2 keyboard and go back into the bios, make sure all the USB controllers are set to "enabled", save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and your USB keyboard should now work and you will be able to access the bios using the USB keyboard.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Bios does not find PS2 keyboard/mouse

Did you go into the BIOS and set it to recognize the USB Keyboard after you reset the BIOS? Is windows not noticing it or the BIOS. You stated that it recognized the USB keyboard and then said that it did not.
What does all of this mean? USB keyboard does not activate "del" setup.

If it does not work, it is because you reset the BIOS and did not change the settings back for the USB keyboard.

I hope that I fixed your problem.

what is the connection type of your keyboard? is it PS/2 or USB?

well, if your keyboard is a PS/2 type, there might be a problem with the PS/2 keyboard port, because you've said that it works well with your other PC.

if your using a USB type of keyboard, well try to check if your SYSTEM BIOS supports USB Keyboards. because there are some PC doesnt supports USB keyboard on its BIOS. if it supports, well, enable the USB Devices on your BIOS settings to ON.

Keyboard not detected

There are some steps to figure out what is causing this.
If you have a desktop:
1. Replace with another keyboard that you know works.
If it boots, than it is the keyboard that was bad
2. If it doesn't - try getting into bios. There is a secion for
keyboard and make sure it is enabled.
3. If it is enabled, than it would be the port for the keyboard that
is the problem. You can take the computer apart an replace
it, or take it to someone who can fix.
If you have a laptop:
1. Add a keyboard to the computer.
2. If it boots, than it is the keyboard on the laptop. This could
mean it is not connected, you have the wrong drivers, or
try getting into BIOS like #2 above.
3. If the keyboard is enabled in the BIOS, reinstall drivers
first. If this doesn't work than there is something wrong with
keyboard (follow #3 above).
(BIOS - when computer boots up, look closely. There is a button you must press to get into setup mode (BIOS). I press F2 on my computer to enter BIOS. Some computers are different).
