Question about Logitech 967233 Keyboard

2 Answers

Keyboard will not work during post or boot

My motherboard recognizes that there is a keyboard because it does boot to windows. But it will not allow me enter into my BIOS or even windows safe mode. The only time that it recognizes a key stroke is in the login screen for windows XP.

The problem you are experiencing is caused by a setting in your BIOS. I recommend getting or borrowing a keyboard with a PS/2 port or getting a USB to PS/2 Adapter for Keyboards. Once you do, you can change the setting in the BIOS to accept USB keyboards. If you are already familiar with BIOS then you don't need to read further to enable USB support, other wise I recommend continuing to get familiar with what you are looking for.

When you get a keyboard that uses a PS/2 port, go to the BIOS for your computer. Go to "Advanced" and search for "USB Legacy Support" or something similar in terms of "USB", "keyboard", or "input". Once found, you will have to change the setting to enable USB. If the name of the setting has "USB", then you want it enabled. If it has "keyboard" or "input", then look at the available options for USB and use it unless it has something similar to "dynamic" or "auto-detect" which are better choices.

After finding the right setting and selecting the correct option, go to "Exit" and select "Exit and save changes". Then the BIOS will save and reboot the computer or continue on as if you didn't open up the BIOS.

This solution really works.. I had the same problem. My CPU refused to take any input from keyboard when I tried to press F8 to start Windows in Safe Mode. When I followed these steps, my USB based keyboard started working. Thanks Zanoab !!

If it is lost lost than you may have to get another keyboard. If it is not working then you need to check the battery and using another keyboard try to re-install the driver. the keyboard should be recognize during boot up sequence if nothing works you may need a replacement.

Generally additional drivers are needed for basic keyboard functionality, although Windows does actually install them as unique devices. Sometimes this process can take several minutes (depending on computer speed) and the keyboard will be unresponsive until it's actually installed. Try plugging in your keyboard, rebooting the PC, and giving it a few minutes once it's up and running.

If that doesn't work you can try booting into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key during the startup process. This will load generic drivers and will allow you to troubleshoot additional drive and/or software issues.

Hi,

First of all make sure that the Number lock or fuction lock are not on. Press one of these keys and see what happens.

Secondly if the keyboard is part of a desktop unit, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard.

Good luck and please post back if you need anymore assistance.

Regards.

Could be a problem with your system BIOS, enter the setup while your computer is booting (before it gets to windows) by hitting the F12 key probably. Make sure that the boot order is HDD first, not something else.

Dell SK-8115 USB keyboard on non Dell PC


This model keyboard has an internal USB hub and Windows only sees the hub when booting. The solution is to get a generic USB keyboard and boot into Windows. Once Windows has loaded the HID drivers for the sk-8115 keyboard then this Dell keyboard will work from then on.
