Keyboard loads in Bios...

When BIOS loads, keyboard works. Between BIOS completion and XP completely loading, the mouse and keyboard do not work.

I need to do a full hard drive wipe to clean up desktop to give away. Any thoughts?

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.

Wireless mouse and keyboard issues


If you have both sets of keyboard and mouse plugged in, turn off the computer and remove the old mouse and plug in the new mouse. Reboot and if necessary use the keyboard to login. Once windows is loaded let it detect the new mouse and then shut down again. Take out the old keyboard and reboot. You should now be able to use both new pieces without problems.

Dell Latitude D800- Keyboard and mouse stop working when undocked.


First update any drivers for your dell.

www.support.dell.com

Is the dock a dell dock, or a universal Dock?

the drivers may need updating.


Some times when you plug a dock in, and turn it on, they will load them into the drivers and when you unplug it, it gets confused and when you boot it up it has to re-install the original drivers and does this while its booting.

This happens alot with the GX620 desktops. If you pull a USB keyboard out while its off and plug it back into a different USB port and tun it on. It wont work right away.

We end up having to let it sit at the login screen for a while till it reloads the drivers to the new USB port.

You will know if yours is doing this as the Hard drive light will be flickering and running.

Try booting it up and letting it load windows and waiting a few minutes.

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.

Can't load os do you computer Dell only has usb ports


Ensure the Keyboard and mouse are connected to the USB ports nearest the PS2 port on the back of the chassis.

Boot to the BIOS F2 and ensure USB emulation is ON.

If you can't access the bios, reset the BIOS using the Jumper on the motherboard, then USB ports should then work.
