USB Keyboard not working during POST

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just recently moved transfered my components to a new case and after having connected everything, all seemed fine. However now I cannot go into the BIOS screen because during startup the keyboard and mouse are not being powered somehow during POST. Once i go into windows the mouse and keyboard work fine in USB.

 

The only way I can access the BIOS is by inserting the PS/2 adapter. The only thing I did different during the transfer to the new case was attaching the firewire remote extension and moving my audigy zs from the pci 2 slot to pci 1.

 

As you can see it's not really a critical issue but I want to resolve it nonetheless. I also double checked to make sure the 5v power cable was attached so that's not the problem either.

 

Thank you

make sure that USB keyboard and mouse are enabled

 

Yeah, there's an option in BIOS to enable USB Keyb. After I did it my MSNE USB worked fine.

Yes, sorry I should have mentioned that. That is one of the first things I did. I even flashed to the official bios and nothing. My keyboard wont power during post and therefore I cant get in the bios.

 

Anyone else?

 

As always thanks for replies.

cecco,

 

Just an idea:

 

Try to enable 'Reset Configuration Data' (should be under Pnp/PCI Configurations in the BIOS). Save and exit the BIOS. Disable again after the whole process.

 

This will update your configuration if you bootup at least to a DOS prompt (or to Windows) and restart.

 

Maybe your USB keyboard will be recognized then.

 

Hope it helps

connector, I'll try that when I get home today. I just find it really odd that my usb keyboard and mouse will work in windows but not during post. :confused:

 

Thanks

that is infact a common issue. and SHOULD be fixed by enabling USB mouse + keyboard in bios... other than that, set it all up, and dont bother with the bios anymore. When u need the bios, use ur other adapter / keyboard what ever.

 

haha, im sorry you have bad luck with this :(

I have similar issues with the KB. It works about half the time as I usually don't notice until I press esc. to reboot from memtest and nada.

That is interesting ixtapalapaquetl, since I am currently using my logitech keyboard without the drivers. However it was working prior to me changing it to a new case and I also fail to see how a driver would make the keyboard work outside the OS environment. Something else to try though. Thanks for pitching in.
