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.

Cannot start bios even when presssing delete


might be a problem with your keyboard
try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
make sure the lead connection is secure and dust free (if applicable)
make sure the usb device is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable)
restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
the restart your computer again during the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
hope this helps you

I've been building computers since 1992. Never saw this. My EVGA MB is in a BIOS loop. Boot .. beep .. EVGA Splash ... -Reboot automatically- Beep ... EVGA Spash ... -Reboot automatically. It's like a...


Turn the computer off.
Hold DOWN the "any" key.
Turn the computer on.
When you see "keyboard error. Press Fxx to enter BIOS SETUP", RELEASE the "any" key, and press the 'Fxx' key.
While in setup, change the boot-order to "floppy-first".
Then, everytime that you boot, your motherboard will "grind" the 3.5-inch disk, looking for a boot-sector.
If it DOES "grind", then BIOS-loading has completed, and there's something wrong with the boot-sector on either the CD-ROM or the disk-drive, i.e., Windows "crashes" during startup, and reboots itself.

Or, press F8 when you think that your computer is booting from the disk-drive, to enter the "Windows boot menu". Try "Boot In Safe Mode".

You're not using a wireless keyboard that could have a "dead" battery inside????

Check that the keyboards (PS/2 and USB) work in some other desktop computer.

Disconnect the disk-drive's "data" cable.

Hold down any key on the keyboard, and then turn your computer on, hoping to generate a "keyboard error; press any key to enter BIOS setup" message.
Now, does the keyboard work?

Insert the Windows CD-ROM.
Startup your computer, and it should boot from the CD-ROM (since the disk-drive is not accessible).

Eventually, it will "pause", and ask for keyboard input.

Try each keyboard, and see if either keyboard works.

If not, then your motherboard is the cause of your problems, and needs to be replaced.

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.

Try another PS2 keyboard.
Try a USB keyboard with a PS2 adapter.
Try resetting the bios using the jumper on the motherboard.
Try removing all of the dust you can from inside the case, reseating all the components and going through the process again. If you can't get it to recognize that a keyboard is installed and can't get the bios to continue despite the no keyboard error you'll have to replace the motherboard.

Keyboard shuts off after booting up


try starting up in Safe Mode by tapping the F6 key during boot-up. this prevents drivers from loading. you may have a corrupted keyboard driver. if your keyboard works in safe mode, try uninstall of the kbd driver, then reinstall.. check for a newer driver version.
