I have an E-Machine wired desktop keyboard. It works while in BIOS setup, but does not work once my Mac OSX starts up. I have tried other keyboards, but the same thing happens. Is this a problem with Mac OSX?

My Apple Mac OS X desktop has a problem with responding to my keyboard. I checked the keyboard with another computer, and it works fine, so that is not the problem. what could be issue w/computer?


Well if the other computer you tried it on is a PC, the your issue is probably that you need to download the driver package for OSX. Windows generally had drivers built in.. mac does not.

Help i have a dell inspiron 530s and all of a sudden my keyboard and mouse do not work on when the logo of windows comes on in start up nor the mouse or keyboard work but my keyboard works on f2 and f8...


Try restoring your system bios to factory default and this may fix your problem. If not- post again with results and we'll go from there.

Entering System Setup

Turn on your computer.

When the blue DELL logo is displayed watch for the F2 prompt to appear (black screen / white text).

Once this F2 prompt appears, immdiately press F2 .

The F2 prompt indicates that the keyboard has initialized and is detected. This prompt can appear very quickly. Watch for it to display as the screen powers up, and then press F2. If you press F2 before you are prompted, this keystroke will be lost. There is a small window of time to do this before Windows starts.
If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then, shut down your computer and try again to enter setup. At setup check your bios version. It may need to be flashed (upgraded). Select load factory defaults to see if that will resolve your PCI issues.

How do you get to the bios (f2) does not work


It depends on the machine. Some require you to press F1, others require you to press Delete, and still others require you to press Enter to get to a menu where you can select the BIOS Setup. These three varieties are the most common ones I've seen, but there are still others that have different ways to enter the BIOS - check the manufacturer's Website, the owner's manual, or search it on the Web.

If your machine is telling you that the keystroke is F2 and it's still not working, you may have a bad keyboard, or your USB keyboard may not be recognized until the BIOS option has expired - try a PS/2 keyboard.

My computer only has usb connection for keyboard. The keyboard does not work during start up, therefore I cannot connect to bios or setup. How do I resolve this issue?


try putting your usb keyboard in another usb slot and see if it works. If not get another USB keyboard and use that. Also make sure other usb deives are working so you know its a keyboard issue and not a usb issue.

Can't enter BIOS


Hi there.
  • Boot the system. Press F2 to enter the BIOS setup.
  • Press ALT-F
  • Press ALT-B
  • Computer will restart and display a message indicating it is re-detecting IDE drives. After a minute or so, Windows will start. Test the device that wasn't working before.
  • If you want to restore other BIOS settings you have set, such as the boot sequence, you will have to restart the computer and enter BIOS setup again.
If this does not work try another usb keyboard in the same port.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

On boot with battery or on power same result. The computer boots to window sign on screen but mouse and keyboard do not work. On reboot tried F2 for setup screen which does work but then once at setup...


i would have told you to go into the bios but seen as you say that F2 key does not work on boot indicates that the keyboard has failed, to check this try another keyboard and see if you get the same result, or if the keyboard is USB try it in a different USB port

hope this helps

kind regards
