Posiflex CD2860 works for short time

I have plugged my Posiflex CD2860 into the keyboard port. My keyboard is using USB. After booting up the PC the Posiflex works (scans & beeps) for a short time then does nothing when button is pressed. I am using Windows XP. Posiflex is set to default.
When I reboot it works again for a short time.

Did a bit more research and it appears that you must have a keyboard attached to the CD2860, even if it is not used.

Enable keyboard


First, make sure it is plugged in. If it is a USB type, try the other USB ports on the computer to see if one or more ports have failed.

Still no luck? Try differen USB ports each time you boot up. During the boot, enter the computer's BIOS or Set Up area (usually pressing DEL, F1 or some other key). Check for setting regarding keyboard and keyboard type. Make sure they are enabled. If nothing works, the keyboard may be broken - not disabled. Try with another keyboard instead.

My keyboard is locked how do i unlock it?


Maybe you keyboard is bad or your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus.

Make sure you keyboard is plugged in good on the back of the computer. If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Round and it plugs into the green port on the back of the computer you have a PS2 (serial) type of keyboard and you cannot unplug it and expect it to work if windows has already booted up. If you remove this type of keyboard connection, you have to Reboot your machine otherwise the keyboard is locked.

If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Flat, then you have a USB type of keyboard that goes into the computer's USB Port. This type of keyboard is Plug and Play so you don't have to reboot if you remove it. If you have this type maybe the USB Port you plugged it into does not work, so try plugging into another USB Port.

Try booting in Safe Mode and see if the keyboard performs.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

Well I'm having a little problem. Each time I try to boot my computer I want to open safe mode, but I can't because the keyboard doesn't function during the boot process. How do I make the keyboard work...


If it is a USB keyboard then you might need to either activate the USB keyboard support in the BIOS by using a different keyboard that plugs into the keyboard port so you can get into the BIOS or buy an adapter that turns the USB connector on your keyboard into a keyboard port connector.

Ga-6vxd7 keyboard wont work to boot from cd


Hi,
Plug the USB keyboard into another port (preferably one at the back) restart the PC and enter the BIOS again, this time go through the BIOS and set all the USB controllers to enabled, hit F10 save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will restart and you should now be able to use the USB keyboard to install the OS.
Please post back if you need anymore advice.


Good luck

On startup my keyboard doesn't work


Hello iko_gan,

This is actually a problem with USB Keyboards, Make sure that your BIOS is set to boot with USB making USB part of the boot sequence as opposed to an OS driver driven function, and if possible use the USB 1 port and not the USB 2 port. USB 2 is more suited for Hard drives. and why use all of your USB bandwidth for your key board.

This helped me solve my problem in this area.

Dell Dimension 3100 e10 ...usb won't work


Does the system respond to boot keys (F2, F12) when the DELL logo appears? If so the problem is with Windows drivers and probably can be resolved by reinstalling or rolling back the drivers, but how? Do you have access to another keyboard? Does the system have PS/2 ports? Do you have access to a PS/2 keyboard or adapter? If boot keys work, you could also choose F8 for Last Known Good Config (XP) or System Restore (Vista).

Have you tried different ports (front if using back or visa-versa)?
Try using just keyboard or mouse to see if one has somehow shorted. Also check the ports for any sign of damage.

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.

Keyboard intermittent


There might be a problem with the keyboards PS2 port. You can bypass the PS2 port all together by buying a PS2 Y-adapter to usb port. This Y adapter will allow you to plug your PS2 mouse & keyboard into it and than you plug the other end into a free usb port. You do not have to plug the PS2 mouse in if you do not want to. Just plug in the keyboard. If your keyboard functions than there is a prolem with the keyboard's PS2 port. The PS2 Y-adapter to USB runs about $12.00 to $15.00. You can find one at Wallmart.
