Keyboard Not Working During Boot Up

Apr 5, 2007

I have had a weird problem of the keyboard not working during boot up -- except it WILL let me get into BIOS. And this is the ONLY time it will not work.A little background is in order, however. Previously, the keyboard stopped working, first during boot up, then totally. Then the mouse stopped working as well. Couldn't do anything at all.... The keyboard is a Micro Innovations, and I'd had it plugged into the PS/2, but I eventually found out that if I plugged it into the USB port instead (it goes either way), the keyboard would work. So, I went out & got a USB mouse, and it worked too. So I was thinking that the card was fried.Last night, I decided to boot it into Safe mode to run some scans. And it wouldn't boot into safe mode, just kept ignoring my F8 command, and going straight to Windows. I did find out that it WILL take my DEL command and go into BIOS, where the keyboard works just fine. So tonite I thought I'd try a repair, thinking maybe some files were corrupt. And it will not take any keystroke to boot from the CD. Again, I can still get into BIOS, though. And, as you can see, it is working fine now. This is how it started in the PS/2 port, when it eventually quit working altogether.

Locks Up Mouse / Keyboard - Recover Press Reset Button

Jan 5, 2005

I use Windows XP home edition. My computer locks up every now and then, the mouse, keyboard, everything. The only way to recover it is to press the reset button. It may go for days and have no problems, then may lock up several times in one day. Than it might go for days again with no problems. It happens a lot when you are playing the windows games, but it will also do it sometimes with other programs. I have looked everywhere to try and figure it out, but I have had no luck. Do you have any ideas what might be causing this or where I can look to correct this problem?

Press Any Key To Boot From CD / Message When Installing Pro

Apr 6, 2007

I've tried several times to install Windows XP now on a new Maxtor drive bought just the other day. When I have the disc in, it loads to the blue install screen without asking me to press a key to boot from cd, I choose to install, partition the drive and format. It copies the files and then restarts, but when it loads again it still doesn't ask for me to press a key (which you aren't supposed to press the second time), and it loads back to the first menu, where I can start all over again.

Keyboard Not Working In Certain Modes

May 31, 2005

On a friends laptop, yesterday all of a sudden her keyboard give in and the right hand half of the keyboard stopped working. Well, didn't stop working, but just displayed the wrong characters. I'm 99% sure (don't ever want to be 100% incase ur wrong eh? ) that it isn't a hardware fault, but infact a software problem, but I can't find the source of the problem.I done all the usual checks on the system from my side. I got her to check for spyware/malware/etc, virus scan with latest definitions, the lot. The problem still didn't go away. Under safe mode within the Administrator profile, the keyboard works fine and all the keys work. I couldn't understand why this was, but then she told me last night that she found something out even more puzzling. Even under safe mode, when she goes into HER profile, the keyboard stops working again.

Setup Keyboard Not Working At All

Oct 5, 2007

I took a side job for a co-worker to fix her computer because when she boots it comes to the blue screen of death. Well, come to find out, the partition of the HD that the OS is loaded on is corrupted so she agreed that we could start from scratch. Sounds fine, right - but no. I'm going to boot from dell's XPsp2 cd (tried multiple cd's) and everything seems fine until I need to actually use the keyboard. A few seconds before the screen comes up that asks you if you want to repair your computer or install windows, the light on the keyboard goes off and nothing works on it. So, I've tried mulitple keyboards and usb ports on the computer (no PS2 ports) - no dice. Tried resetting the bios to the original state - no dice.

Mouse And Keyboard Are Not Working

Jul 5, 2006

A buddy of mine is having problems with his PC. He said when he turns it on it seems to boot up fine (lights on case work) but his screen, mouse and keyboard are not working. Now Im assuming that all those burning out at the same time is next to impossible. I think it might have to do with the PC itself. I have yet to try a different screen and such just to make sure. Also if infact trying another screen fails i obviously will not be able to look in his bios, which leaves me kinda stumped.

Keyboard And Mouse Not Working Because Of Any Virus

Mar 8, 2008

I am having issues with my keyboard and mouse(hence the title). My keyboard works fine while in the bios and while booting, but once the Windows Bar stops going from side to side and I start to see my desktop load, the screen is in 640x480 resolution or something (like safe mode) and I can't use my keyboard or my mouse, even though the lights on both are lit(so they have power). Earlier, I was having problems with my hal.dll (long story, but I ended replacing it from my MCE OEM CD in the recovery console((which I have in my MBR Boot menu)), and now I am here). I think that that might be the contributing issue here, but I have no clue what to do next. The same thing happens when I enter safe mode. I would just boot from my XP DVD and do a repair, but DELL gave me a DVD-ROM OEM disk with my XPS 600 even though the only drive I can boot from is my CD-RW DRIVE as far as I know. I have checked my boot order in my bios. I can boot from USB or Onboard or Removable Hard drives and Cd Drives.

Laptop Keyboard Not Working When Boots?

Jan 15, 2009

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop. The keyboard will not respond in windows at the login screen, not even in to go into safemode. It will however work in BIOS, I rebooted several times, still no dice, held down the Fn key and hit keys to no avail. But at the login screen I can hit Fn+f8 and it'll toggle the screen from lcd to external and back, can also eject the cdrom. I am stuck cause i cant login to XP.

I had left my computer on when i left town for a day. When i was back the computer was at the windows login screen. I am assuming that at some point while i was gone an automatic windows upate may have been installed which forced the computer to reboot. the update may have messed up my keyboard drivers.
any help would be greatly appreciated as at this point im stuck!!!! thanks in advance

Setup Freeze - Keyboard Not Working

Feb 26, 2006

It is about 5 years old. Assembled by Mode Computers Woolongong.It has 2 Hard drives both with xp pro as operating systems on both drives. I had it set up to boot from drive D. On friday the computer was running very slow so I run virus, registry programs thru it also defragmented it. My broadband connection was snail pace. So I done a silly thing and decided to reinstall xp again. I thought that this might fix up some corrupt files.This is where I'm having all the trouble. It only got so far and froze, now when I try to boot the computer to goes staight to Windows XP setup and goes so far and a blank screen comes on. Now I've tried to boot rescue disks by changing 1 st boot to CD. This works but my keyboard doesn't at this stage which doesn't allow me to select an item.

Keyboard And Mouse Not Working - Installed SP3

At first the boot was failing, made some hardware changes and all was good seemingly... now the keyboard and mouse no longer work, but they work when the computer just starts up. They just stop working shortly after. I plugged in a USB mouse and that works, so I was thinking it may be a problem with the PS/2 ports.

Keyboard Not Working On Startup, Need To Reformat

Apr 22, 2008

Alright, so i'm in the process of reformatting my computer, a process I've gone through many times on many computers, however, my latest setup, being my first hand-built computer, is having an issue when it comes to powering the keyboard when the computer starts up.My plan is to reformat the main hardrive, there are no separate partitions, however the two methods I've attempted have not worked. In startup, adjust the bios to boot from disk rather than HD with the windows Cd inserted, this I have done with no change, I've removed every other option than to boot from CD, it shouldnt even be going to the HD but it does. Press ANY key to Boot from Disc, this option appears shortly after the Del to enter setup page, and counts down before normally running windows. However the keyboard is unresponsive at this point, so I cant choose the option I want to.

But on logging in the previous user, the keyboard starts functioning again.

Slow Booting - Keyboard Not Working

Jun 1, 2006

Firstly it's veeeeeery slow booting up, when on the xp loading screen the scrolling blue bars will stop, sometimes for over a minute. When it eventually gets to the user log on screen it again takes forever to load. Secondly. I removed a couple of progs. msn and google search bars and motorolla phone tools. On restart it just kept rebooting after getting a BSOD. I started in safe mode and took the check out of automatically restart in startup and recovery, and it now seems to be ok. Thirdly. my keyboard isn't working, I am having to use the onscreen keyboard which is a pain.
