    Same thing here: I was browsing the web one day in Windows Vista Ultimate when my comp. suddenly gave me the blue screen of death and froze. I forced it to shutdown and when I turned it back on it just gets stuck at the logo screen. So I left it alone for 20 minutes and turned it back on and everything worked again. But 5 minutes into my time with computer it blue screened AGAIN and the same thing happened with the start up. What the hell is going on and how do I fix it? Also in the answers I do not need these following tips:

    1.overheating
    2.incompatibility
    3.new hardware/software being installed

    Ty and omg plz help asap DX

Ecs 945gct m3 v h motherboard ver 3.1


Your motherboard keyboard controller is not initializing completely. The three LEDs shows the keyboard is powered and initializes, but the motherboard keyboard controller looks to be bad. I assume the keyboards work on other computers. Make sure there are no jumpers on the motherboard for the keyboard. You said the video screen is stuck on CMOS BIOS logo and is trying to continue with a missing keyboard or keyboard error. So since it got to the BIOS screen, pretty much everything else came up.

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.

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.

Reset the BIOS on a Compaq server 740 jumpers settings


Don,t do that insatead:
Entering the BIOS Setup menu Entering the BIOS Setup menu requires pressing a specific key at a specific time. If you fail to enter the Setup menu on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful:
  1. Close all applications that are currently running and restart the computer by clicking Start , Shut Down , Restart the Computer , and then OK .
  2. When the red Compaq logo or blue HP logo screen appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard to enter the Setup menu.

NOTE: An alternate to the above steps, especially if the logo screen disappears too quickly to enter BIOS, is to shut down (turn off) the computer. Wait 30 seconds, turn the power on and press F10 or F1 at the logo screen. Reloading the default settings Complete the following steps to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup settings:
  1. In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Exit tab.
  2. Select Load Setup Defaults .
  3. Select Save Changes and Exit (pressing F5 and the Enter key will also load the Setup Defaults).
  4. Press Esc and then Enter to exit Setup.

Computer will turn on but wont stay on


Most likely your power supply is faulty. You can test it with a voltmeter to determine if this is the cause or if it's the motherboard.

Keyboard not functioning properly - ple'se ple'se help


First, we must find out if either its your keyboard that's busted or it has something to do with windows. If you can get hold of another keyboard, shut off the computer, switch keyboard, then power up the computer then see what happens. If it still does the same thing, try to do a system restore, click start>All Programs>Accessories folder>System Tools> then click system restore. Click next on the first system restore page> then choose a BOLD date that you're sure that the keyboard is still working fine. Click next, then click next again. Just just let go, the computer will automatically restart. At the end of the system restoration process a pop up will appear when you get to the desktop screen. Just click next. Test your keyboard. If it still does not work. Back your data then reinstall windows. You can also do PC restore if your computer has the capability to do PC Restore by restaring computer, on the dell logo screen(this screen appeaRS A FEW SECONDS AFTER TURNING ON THE COMPUTER)hold down CTRL key on KBoard while tapping F11. just follow the instructions given by the Symantec program.
