Keyboard Wont Work When Windows Starts Up!?

Q: Keyboard Wont Work When Windows Starts Up!?

Basically my keyboard works when it starts. I can press F8 or Esc to go into the windows startup menu. However when (even in safe mode) it starts up it asks for Ctrl+Alt+Del. Here my keyboard is non responsive. I've had this issue before and used to solve it with windows restore settings to a previous date through safe mode, however this time i can't get into safe mode because clever windows felt like making it so secure.
Also the option of going back to previously good settings after pressing F8 desnt help. I've tried all sorts of boot disks made on my other computer but nothing seems to get it to that BIOS screen. As i said the buttons work before windows starts up just i cant do anything useful with them. Oh and i dont have an XP Pro CD either... would that help? how do i restore mysetings to a previous date?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi andrew99 and welcome to TSF !

Is this a laptop or a desktop ?

If it's a desktop, is that keyboard PS/2, usb or wireless ? What's its brand and model ? Try with another PS/2 keyboard and report if you have the same problems.

If it's a laptop, what model is it ?

Were working fine yesterday. Today I return home and find computer had mysteriously turned itself on. Mouse not working but keyboard allows me to try to shut down. Taking very long time so shut down with power button.

Now my keyboard and mouse both do not work on Windows login screen. Same for safe mode. Before this, in BIOS, other screens can get to by holding down keys as computer starts, keyboard works.

As Windows loads, can see keyboard illumination switches off. Same for mouse laser. My other USB peripherals (extra HD and wireless thingy) still have lights on. Fairly new computer. Cost me ?300 new about 6 months ago.

I tried to 'roll back' Windows - there was only one option - for when I installed Itunes maybe a week ago, but that failed.

I chacked inside and outside the case to see if there's any sockets for PS/2 keyboards, but there aren't any.

Any idea what's going on? Thanks for any help.

A:USB keyboard and mouse do not work once Windows starts

If you can not open the BIOS screen with USB keyboard, use a PS/2 keyboard for the setting.

Open the BIOS screen and enable Legacy support for USB keyboard and mouse. This should do the trick.

Hi david9562 and welcome to TSF !

Switch for a regular PS/2 keyboard for the time of the installation, you'll be able to use your own keyboard once Windows is installed.

Make sure you've backed up all your data on a different physical drive before you go the format/reinstall from scratch way.

Hi all...

This looks like a helpful forumn so I hope you might be able to resolve my issue.

I have a Gyration Bluetooth Mouse and Keyboard. They both plug in using a single USB reciever. I was moving the computer and when I plugged the reciever back in, my keyboard wouldnt work once it got to the windows login screen.

I've changed the batteries, reinitialized the devices using the learn/teach buttons, confirmed that my USB support is enabled in BIOS and attempted to log into safe mode.

Neither a USB nor a PS2 keyboard will work, while the mouse runs smoothly. I cant log into windows as I have both a user and an administrator password which I am unable to type.

In my research I found this old thread discussing my exact issue, with a logitech mouse and keyboard.

Hello manvin and Welcome to TSF sometimes you really have to time it right when you hit the F8 key but if you're still having problems accessing Safe Mode or Last Known Good Configuration give this a try

Recovery Console: In the progression of repair items for XP, Recovery Console is the next logical step if Last Known Good Configuration and Safe Mode have failed in allowing the system to boot. As Microsoft states, "This method is recommended only if you are an advanced user who can use basic commands to identify and locate problem drivers and files."

Access the Recovery Console: Start the computer with the Windows XP installation CD in the CD drive. When prompted during text-mode setup, press R to start the Recovery Console.

Hello everyone. I am trying to reformat a very screwed up system that was custom built. My immediate problem is the keyboard won't work, so I can't select the "boot from disc" option. I have both a keyboard that plugs into the purple recepticle, AND a wireless that uses usb. I CAN get the wireless to work only AFTER the computer has booted all the way up. If i wiggle the purple plug, I can get an occasional light on my plugged keyboard - but not enough to go through the reformat process. HELP!

A:Trying To Reformat - Keyboard Wont Work

Looks like the purple one (or the plug in the motherboard) is bad. Try another one with a purple plug.

As for the USB one, try borrowing a USB to PS2 adaptor (comes with most mice and keyboards and is usually grene) to see if it'll work in the purple plug.

I'v been having a few issues with my cpu lately. A new hdd and psu are arriving soon so I'm going for a fresh reinstall of everything.

However in the meantime, I can't use the internet basically 'cause my keyboard isn't working. When I boot up, the boards lights stay on as win xp is loading- which is normal, but right about when the black windows intro screen finishes, the keyboard lights go out. Then when I'm in windows, the board is dead.

The board isn't stuffed 'cause it is detected in bios- I can enter bios and move around ok so it's a windows related problem. Also, I tried another keyboard and the same thing happens.

I've had this keyboard working fine for a few years now and haven't has this problem. Also device manager is showing the keyboard as working fine!

I just got done putting together my first computer build, and when I start the computer it gets to the Boot menu. Now I need to get into BIOS but the keyboard does not seem to respond. I did some research on the net and people are saying maybe my mobo has disabled the "USB Legacy" in the BIOS, so I need to get the PS/2 keyboard. So i just drove halfway across town and bought a brand new keyboard with a PS/2 plug and it still dont work. I cannot Enter the BIOS to change the "USB Legacy" thing. Every time I get to the boot menu i press Del , but nothing happens and the computer says "Monitor going to sleep" and then a couple of seconds later it gets to boot menu again. IS this something wrong with my video card, do I need to take it off the mobo, before getting into the BIOS ? ( if so why am I seeing the boot screen). If the USB Legacy things is disabled than why the hell is the PS/2 NOT working, I know which hole it plugs in. Another thing I saw online is people saying I might need to reset CMOS, I really dont wanna mess with that. Please help

A:mouse or keyboard wont work after certain point on win xp

The problem isn't the mouse. The problem is with the files on disk. They are corrupted.
Did you had a power failure or a freeze system earlier?
Fat 32 isn't the appropriate file system for the OS. It should be formatted as NTFS.
Do you have the Win XP installation disk?
