- This keyboard doesn't work with 2 motherboards (both Asus PQ5 SE2).
- This keyboard does work at another machine.
- Two other keyboards don't work either with both motherboards.
- These two other keyboards work also at another machine.
The interesting question: why can't you get into the BIOS? Do you press the correct key? Apparently F1 works (No keyboard detected, press F1 to continue) if you press it, so one expects the F2 or F10 or del or whatever-it-is key to work also. Then you should be able to check the keyboard in the BIOS setup program.
If this motherboard has a PS/2 connection for the keyboard, I'd use that, even if the mouse works with USB. That's all I can offer.
I'm doing a clean install of Vista 64bit and I reached the page where I have to enter a computer name and password and my keyboard does not work.
It's a 5 year old HP ps2 keyboard that works with my other older computers but not with my new build.
I cannot get into the Bios and when I power up I receive a "Keyboard Detected press F1 to resume" message and than go into Vista set up.
I used the on screen keyboard to enter Vista ID numbers but cannot get past the give computer a name and password page.
I tried using a USB/PS2 adapter in all the USB ports but nothing gets the KB working. The USB ports work fine with my USB mouse.
The keyboard lights up briefly when I plug in the PS2 and the USB but does not work.
Do I need a new KB that is 64bit compatible?
The mobo is Asus and their tech had me clear the CMOS but that did not help so I returned the PQ5 SE2 for another and I still have the same problem.
I've tried connecting two older KB that are in working order but do not work with my build.
Does anyone have a clue as to the problem?
