Question about Logitech 967233 Keyboard
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 !!
