Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Dell Dimension E521 that won't allow me to enter the bios setup or the boot menu. When I hit F12 or F2 nothing will happen it will continue to boot up and the the OS. It is a USB keyboard. Seems like the BIOS is not setup to recognize USB devices. I cannot use a serial keyboard because there is no serial ports on this computer. Any ideas?
Check if your keyboard is connected to USB port which is part of the motherboard and not some frontal or 'additional' USB ports you might have
