I have a xp pro system. The keyboard and mouse work during BIOS. They will not work in safe mode or in windows. I have tried other keyboards and mice. None of them work. I am running eyeonet dvr software....


somewhere in the bios you might have a setting for lecgacy or usb 1 or usb 2. just select a different option and try again. this sounds like a common problem but only the other way around. usually if the usb setting is wrong a keyboard doesnt work in bios but works in windows.

I want to change keyboards


Hi Richard,
most enhanced keyboards need a specific driver to run.
Go to the manufacturers website to download the driver. or search on Google.
You might also have to enter BIOS (accessed when the computer is booting..look for a message that tells you how to get into BIOS, or look in your user manual). Often it can be accessed by pressing the DELETE or F1 key just after you power up. The option in BIOS you may have to change is something like "enable Legacy support for USB".
Have you tried looking in the Dell support website? As you just recently(?) bought this, you can ring up Dell support centre and ask them to help.
Cheers,
Steve

I got a new key board it was working yesterday when i kept switching my pc on and off but today it wont work what cud i try


Hi


Please check whether your keyboard is properly plugged in to your computer. If it is plugged in properly then try and change the slot of the keyboard(if its a USB port keyboard). If this doesn't help then try to check the BIOS settings for keyboard settings.
To enter BIOS settings press DEL key continuosly or F8(Function key 8) continuosly until the BIOS menu appears. Under the menu select the option of Hardware->Keyboard-> check whether it is enabled or disabled. If it is disabled then enable it.

Try using this keyboard with another Computer, if it doesn't work with other Computer as well then you can get it replaced for a new one.

Hello, i currently use a IBM desktop with IBM keyboard and mouse but i just bought a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse which i just installed into my desktop using the installation CD. They are both...


Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

Just purchased an Acer Veriton M464 recently. The keyboard musnt be confifigured properly as some of the buttons are mixed up and the right hand side number keys dont work! What can i do?


I'd say unplug the keyboard, boot the computer without the keyboard, then use the windows key to shut it down, then plug it in and turn it back on, if it continues to do the same thing you can look for a secondary program running that handles the keyboard and see if it has a configuration option. If none of these things seem helpful, look in the bios, see if there is something funky in there that handles keyboard functions. If all else fails, purchase a cheezy keyboard from best buy and try that, if it works properly then u know it's the keyboard, if it doesn't, return the entire system as it could be a malfunction with the "bios" basic input output system that is not translating information properly.

Just a fyi, I'd return it anyway and get a dell.

THe keyboard has gone beserk... the up and down keys keep pressinf themselves.. also sometimes some keys just stop working... please help


your problem may have different causes:

1. if your keyboard is old, you may want to spend either money, on a new keyboard, or time, cleaning your keyboard as you may have some kung underneith causing the keys to stick.

2. do try another key board and see if that corrects the issue (get rid of the current problem keyboard). try the keyboard on another computer and see it works fine. if it does your problem may be with the connector on the motherboard, you may have to get usb keyboard or you may have to replaced your motherboard.

3. if your keyboard is a special new keyboard you may have to look for updated drivers for it instead of using the drivers that come with the operating system.. look into the keyboard manufacturer's website for updated drivers..

4. go to control pannel> keyboards and look into the hardware tab and look for properties, make sure the status of the device is "working properly" if not reinstall or updated drivers.

5. check your possible bios updates: if your keyboard is a ps/2 (mini 6 pin din). look for for updates for your bios on motherboard manufacturer website.

post more details of your device and issues and we'll try to help.

Keyboard


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.
