Preferred Solution: Keyboard not detected in boot, but detected in windows

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.)

A:Can't boot into Windows - keyboard not detected

Hello kyri0s. Welcome to the Forum

First, is it possible the keyboard is bad? If it was working just fine before the install then it probably is OK.

First thing I would suggest is to go through your BIOS/UEFI settings and look for an entry for "FastBoot" or similar. Enable quick booting, fast booting and see if that helps.

"Halt on all errors" is a legacy Bios 'feature'. Modern motherboards don't do this by default and will boot without a keyboard attached. I'm guessing that when "FastBoot" is turned off then the BIOS runs all tests and will halt on any error.

Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

That's what the system said, in DOS, on the black screen. Of course, I had my mouse and keyboard unplugged at the time, because I had just unplugged everything to move the computer.

Anyways, I plugged the keyboard and mouse in, restarted the computer, and everything started normally.

My question is, what is with this error? Vista can't boot up if I don't have a keyboard and mouse plugged in? It's not a big deal, but it seems like very odd behavior.

A:Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

This has nothing to do with Vista whatsoever. As you said it showed up on the black screen with white text, which is the boot screen. The computer hasnt even started loading windows yet. The fatal eror occurs because you have no input device. The computer recognises this, and given that they are important, it puts a warning up that there is no connection.
It is completely normal, really, and whatever OS you have, its going to do the same thing.

Well yesterday I had left my computer on (logged in on Windows 7) and when i got back the computer was in a continuous boot sequence (starts to boot, then after about 4 seconds shuts down and then over and over again). I reset the power from the back and turned it back on and it started up but with a different boot screen (Dynamic Energy Saver Quad6 Screen lol) and not the "black" one that normally comes up. It happened again last night and I think it happens when I leave my computer logged on in Windows 7. The weird thing was that after I reset the power from the socket (which stopped the loop) and turned it back on, it had me still logged on as a user and everything was like it was before I had left (basically like hibernate, except that hibernate is disabled on my computer..)

Well anyway I managed to get rid of the "new" quad6 boot screen that kept coming up, and got my original "black" one up. I did this by fiddling around in BIOS with 1-2 settings which I can't remember at the moment. But I have noticed now after this incident my mouse and keyboard are not detected UNTIL the login screen comes up, which means I can't select the OS i want to boot (because i cant select it with keyboard so it automatically boots windows 7) nor can I boot in safe mode..

How can I resolve it so that mouse/keyboard is detected as soon as the computer is started, like it was before.

Help would be really appreciated!

I recently tried to install Windows 7 on my computer. I already had it and it's a custom built computer, however I wanted to try to move Windows 7 over to my SSD however I got issues and I couldn't wipe the disks. In my BIOS I set the WDC (not sure if t's the SSD or the HDD) to the first boot priority, then ASUS CD/DVD. I ran the installation, or well to the point where you could choose what disk to install it on. Couldn't install it on any as they weren't wiped. Tried to turn off the computer and start it up again in order to access the computer, log onto W7 and format the disks. But what came up was "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". My Windows 7 disc is still in, however nothing happens. I can't press any key as my KEYBOARD IS NOT BEING DETECTED. Which is an abnormal issue, been searching around for hours now. How do I fix this? I've checked the wires, doesn't seem to be anything there. It's weird as I haven't touched any of the components, just restarted the computer and this is what came up.

I should have came to this conclusion sooner, but my current re-installation of Windows has some problems that I haven't had the time to address until now. What I need, though, is access to the repair function on the disk. However, herein lies my problem...

When I boot up, media in the drive or no media, bios does not show the drive in its list. I can still open and close the drive as if nothing is wrong there, but I cannot "boot from CD". I've reset my bios back to defaults and while the drive appeared on IDE Channel 1 in the settings, it still would not recognize ANY media while booting up.

I have the latest version of my bios. I have also tried changing cables. The drive is on an IDE channel by itself.

Once my system boots into Windows, however, the drive is recognized and acts normally as if nothing happened in bios. Media operates fine. I have checked the event viewer, and there are no entries anywhere that states my optical drive has been experiencing problems, and yes, in fact it operates just like it always does.

Can anyone help me get my bios and cdrom back together again? The problem is I just do not know where to start to solve this. I wish I could say how long this has been happening, but I really don't know as of today. There have been no hardware changes in the past three months, and my current installation and configuration began back in late April.

Thanks for your time...

A:CD/DVDROM drive - not detected by bios, detected by Windows?

What is the boot sequence in the bios? should be CD or optical drive first, then Hard Drive or IDE-0 second if you want to boot from the cd-drive. Many computer manufacturers set the computer to automatically boot off of the hard drive by default so setting the factory defaults might not be what you are looking for. Look for the screen that has the boot order or sequence and just change it, exit and save settings and restart the computer with the boot cd in the drive. I hope that helps.

I have a Microsoft Natural Multimedia Keyboard 1.0 that is not detected by my new Windows 7 computer. I have tried installing Intellitype, and I've tried both a split USB connected and a single USB connector for the KB. In all cases, Windows does not detect the keyboard. In fact, the "Keyboard" entry disappears from the device manager when I unplug the other keyboard and plug in the new one.

The computer is an Intel Core7 860 running Windows 7 in 64 bits.

A:PS2 keyboard isn't detected by Windows 7.

PS/2 and USB are very different protocols. For a PS/2 device to work when using a PS/2 to USB adapter, the device itself has to support both protocols. Some will only work with the adapter that shipped with them, they won't work with a generic replacement.

I don't believe the 1.0 models supported USB. You need the 1.0a to get partial USB support.
The K50-00001 does not work with USB, the K50-00008 does, but the programmable keys will not work when using USB.

You should test the keyboard on a PS/2 port to make sure the keyboard itself is not dead.

Hello, I recently bought a Probook 450 G4, i7 7500U with 1 TO HDD and 8GB RAM. I wanted to upgrade it with an SSD so I bought a ADATA Premier SP550 2280 M.2 SSD. The BIOS detected it normally, but windows installer wouldn't find it. I removed the HDD and tried again, same issue. I then installed windows 10 on the HDD to try and format the SSD in windows and surprise! no sign of the SSD nowhere, not in browser nor in Disk Managment or Diskpart. Apparently HP disabled the M.2 port in BIOS as mentioned here ( https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/M-2-SSD-Upgrade/m-p/5580822#M3... ) I updated the BIOS the the latest version provided by HP for my laptop model and the same issue is still ongoing, this is a 120$ SSD that I can't use nor return as the problem is the HP product not ADATA's SSD! The simplest solution is in the hands of HP, just release a BIOS update with the M.2 port ENABLED ! why brag about having a M.2 port in your products and then DISABLE it ?! Any insights please ? Many Thanks. PS: I started a new thread yesterday and it is no longer available now ! did HP remove it or what ? it was there for a while and I'm sure! what a shame !

I am currently stranded and cannot use my PC.

I have successfully booted from my CDROM - now when I either choose to reinstall Windows or Repair, it states it cannot find any installed HDD in my computer...

I have checked for all HDD connection inside PC and all OK. I was even able to see the RAID configuration stuff as per normal bootup info.

I checked my BIOS in IDE Config. and all OK.

Is there anywhere in BIOS that I should be checking for HDD presence?

Otherwise, what do I do now?

It has a weird bug where the game will crash unless I have a keyboard plugged in through an otg cable or over bluetooth. Is there any way I could install a driver so it thinks I have a physical keyboard plugged in 24/7?

Also, if this is possible, is there anything similar I could install so it believes I have a mouse plugged in as well? Thanks!

Today I bought a new USB 3.0 thumb drive to make a recovery media. Windows detects it, no problems. I used Toshiba Recovery Media Creator. It completed successfully. Then I rebooted only to see if the media is actually bootable, in case something happens. Then it hangs. I don't even see the bios splash screen. Just a black screen with a cursor. The system reboots when I remove it or when I wait about 2 minutes. The HDD is first in the boot order. I usualy select the boot device with F12 when I try to boot something different than the HDD. I am able to boot from another thumb drive (usb 2.0 8gb). My new recovery media is bootable on another laptop (3 years old). I tried to make an image of GParted for i686, in case the most recent version of the iso were made for UEFI. Still nothing. But the old thumb drive boots. I don't anything in the BIOS for Legacy or UEFI, or Secure Boot. So what's happenning? Does the BIOS need an upgrade?? The thumb drive is a Kingston Datatraveller 101 g3 usb3.0 (32 gb). The laptop is 5 years old Toshiba satellite T230.

I am having a problem booting my windows xp dell inspiron 700m. When I try to boot windows, it flashes "corrupted or missing boot.ini" for a split second, and then displays the message "System could not locate hal.dll" or something to that effect. I must have corrupted the MBR or the boot record and maybe even the partition tables. I went into windows recovery console, and did FIXMBR and FIXBOOT with no success. It is my understanding that windows recovery console should pull up a list of windows installs to choose from to fix. That did not come up, as it went straight to the C:\ recovery console prompt. Therefore the system seems to be unable to detect a windows install. I confirmed this by trying to use a windows xp upgrade, and it said that it couldn't detect any previously installed versions of windows and therefore would not update.

I can provide further laptop specs on request.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

i had left the computer on for abput 2 hours and had switched off the moniter. when i returned, the diplay didnt work. i thought it must be a problem with the connecteing cord so i tried to shake it. when nothing worked, i turned the whole system offf the main electricity cord. after some time,
it was a slow start but it worked, later blue scren appeared and said windows did so to prevent damage to files and restarted.
once that happened, my pc said something about lack of external memory as windows cannot be booted.

Today Norton Antivirus began to block threats from Trojan.Zeroaccess.B, Trojan.Gen, Trojan.Gen.2, and Trojan.Zeroaccess.C. I have been prompted to do a manual removal of Trojan.Zeroaccess!inf4 from c:\windows\system32\services.exe. Additionally, Bitcoinminer is being repeatedly detected, blocked and quarantined. I'm not sure if Norton is having a problem deleting/quarantining Bitcoinminer, or if it is actually being downloaded over and over. I suspect that these two problems are related, as they started at the same time.

From what I gather, the fix seems to be quite complicated and I would appreciate some help.

I did a stupid thing yesterday. I downloaded an icon pack APK file on my computer to upload to my mobile. Anyway, the thing is, when I double clicked on it, BlueStacks (Android Emulator) opened up, and Avast started giving me lots of warnings about BlueStacks accessing Trojan URLs (it blocked them of course).
Now, the thing is: I scanned the APK file both in Malware Bytes Anti Malware and Avast (and even Malware Bytes Anti Rootkit), and it showed no virus or malware found. But when I try to attach the the same APK file as a Gmail attachment (which I read on the net detects viruses, which is why I tried it), Gmail gives me a "Virus found" error.
So, my question is how come such reliable antivirus / anti-malware programs like MBAM and Avast didn't detect the virus but Gmail did? And more importantly, (though I have deleted the APK file in question from my computer) is my computer safe? Or has a rootkit / trojan been installed?

Help, my friends laptop gets nothing but a black screen when the notebook boots up that reads.. (Dont know why or how this started)

Operating system not found

I've tried to do a clean install with a Operating system disc that came with the laptop to re-install the operating system, by the way its a Gateway windows vista home premium 32bit Model number W340UI, but right at the beginning of the installation where it asks a drive to install the operating system it reads:

"No drives were found. Click load driver to provide a mass storage drive for installation"

Im guessing i have to pre-load drivers for the hard drive first? If so how do i do this, i figured the operating system dics given by gateway would include them and automatically install from the same disc? maybe im wrong though.
(This is the only disc I have)

I also tried to do the "Repair computer" option using the same disc, and chose the automatically fix errors on the computer and received a message that no hard drive was found.

So must i find and download drivers to the notebook first before trying to re-install the operating system? Thanks for the help in advance

Hi guys,

I bought a bluetooth dongle off of amazon so I could use my bluetooth headset with my comp. Once plugged in it installs driver version 6.1.7601.17889 from microsoft and there are no yellow '?'s. When I look for devices it sees my headset no probs but will not connect, which it does instantly with phones / tablets etc.

A very detailed search has brought me to the conclusion that it's a problem with the bluetooth driver, not the headset. Unfortunately there are no identifiers on the dongle itself but device manager seems to think it's:

Device type: Bluetooth Radios
Manufacturer: Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd

Is there anyway I can detect exactly the chipset in the dongle and get the correct drivers installed? Or am I barking up the wrong tree completely?

I've been dealing with a virus/malware/rootkit for a few days now, and I haven't been able to remove it so far, and it seems to be getting worse.

When it first started, it was just redirecting links in Google to random junk sites. I've followed a lot of the advice on other pages, and have installed and run scans with HijackThis, SpybotS&D, Anti-Malware, SuperAntiSpyware, Avast, Windows Defender (hey, why not), and most recently ComboFix.

Some of those have found problems and removed them, but the problem still hasn't gone away, or some parts have been removed while others have remained, and it has gotten worse. Avast finds Win32:Alureon-CE[RTK] in memory, but it doesn't seem capable of fixing it (I've had it try to repair, delete, move to chest, etc.). It keeps saying the file is c:\windows\system32\geyekrmsbhbcdi.dll but that file doesn't seem to actually exist.

Now, I can't even boot into Windows (only safe mode) because it stops doing anything at the "Welcome" screen (after I've entered my login password).

Here are some related logs from the various scanner programs I've been running. I'll post more as I complete them (I'm doing new ones right now). Unfortunately, I can't find a way to disable Comodo and Avast (they don't show up as running in Task Manager) for ComboFix to run properly, so I don't know if that will be able to help me.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Wow, I think I managed to fix it on my own. I ran the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and it found one item, which it removed, and now I can boot up normally and Google's working the way it should.

I'm going to run one more series of scans with Avast and the various malware programs I've installed, but is there anything else I can do to make sure it really is fixed?

Also, is there one malware program I should keep that has the best passive protection? I've been running with Avast and WinDefender, and now I have Spybot/TeaTimer and Comodo installed. I might just get rid of the others once I'm done.

EDIT: Nope, virus scan found it again. But at least I'm able to use Windows again.

A:No keyboard detected - help

USB ports can be the first things that can go on a faulty Motherboard

Just in case, try this

Boot up with any type of Boot disc (ie your Windows disc)
Go to the command line (If using Windows disc, you would need to select R to get into the Recovery Console)

Then test if your keyboard works (actually getting passed "R" would prove it anyway)

If it does work, you may actually have a Virus\Trojan in Windows
Or the USB device driver may be corrupt
You would be best to Re-install Windows

I have a Lenovo L340 computer, I was working on an assignment today when the keyboard spontaneously stopped working. I tried restarting my computer and when it booted back up a black screen with the words ?keyboard not detected? popped up. I tried looking through some settings, the driver setting for my keyboard is coming up with a Code 10, but it?s difficult because I keep getting a Blue Screen saying that the error is that there is a power drive state failure. Now I?ve just checked up on it and it looks like my mousepad isn?t working either. Any tips on what to do would be appreciated! Thank you!

Huh... okay so false alarm, I guess??? Just now it started working again. I have no explanation for this, I was in the middle of a panic about having to pay for repairs but now it?s just working. If anyone has any explanation as to what just happened I?d love to know still.... but crisis averted?

help! i have a packard-bell packmate 7835 computer 233 mhz that's been sitting on the shelf for 6 months and am running windows 95. I wanted to upgrade my operating system to windows 98 and use this computer for a new p.o.s. program I bought. It was working fine i thought when I unplugged it. Now when I turn it on and it's booting up it won't detect the keyboard. It goes to windows 95 screen and all my programs work fine as long as i only need the mouse. I can't upgrade or do anything that I want to without my keyboard and I've checked the control panel area etc. and have plugged in 3 different keyboard to see if it was just a defective keyboard and rebooted each time and still no keyboard detected. I called a local computer repair shop and they said I might need a new motherboard because if keyboard port was bad it was probably connected to my motherboard. What's really strange is that I then brought home another computer that had been working fine with keyboard at work and replaced cd-rom drive in it because the one in it was bad. After doing that and booting it up now that packard bell pm7130 computer also is not detecting a keyboard and i've also tried 3 keyboards. Now I have 2 computers that won't work . Do I trash them and go buy a new one or what are my options?? Help!!!

So I bumped my computer while cleaning today and it turned off.. when I restarted the pc everything started up fine all harddrives , cpu, graphics card, and fans. It loads right to the log in screen but both my mouse and keyboard won't work, I have tried every usb port and turned it off and on before trying another. When u plug my tablet into the computer using a USB port the tablet will charge.
I have no idea what's wrong any suggestions?

I have done a format and complete new installation of Windows Xp. Upon rebooting, the computer shows me the option on screen (F1)of going into BIOS setup.then shows me a blank screen with the message-

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt

I removed that hard drive and tried another working hard drive with WinXp and same message came up.

Problem the computer does not respond to my (PS2)keyboard input so that I can at least go into the bios setting. Bought a new Logitech USB keyboard but that too did'nt resolve the problem.

Is there a way to update this bios as I noted a new update. Computer is a Compaq presario 1920nx.

Last night while watching a DVD on my comp, I noticed my drive light going on and background activity. When I checked Task Manager I saw that Helpsvc.exe was hogging resources and closed it down.

On booting up later, the pc would get to the desktop and lockup then restart.

Went into BIOS and set it to stop on encountering an error to try and establish what the problem was - and from then on, it would stop boooting on the post screen with 'keyboard not detected.'

I have tried two keyboards and 2 usb sockets
but the same outcome results.

My mouse is also usb and that functions normally - but am presently using a borrowed ps2 keyboard to type this.

I was told that interrupting Helpsvc may have caused a glitch in usb / legacy devices and try using XP Recovery Console.

Have just manually done the full Win Update -

What can I do to restore usb k/board functionality ?

Should I remove them in Device Manager and then reinstall necessary drivers from the XP CD as required ?

It's not a major problem and so format and reinstall Win is not something I want to do as I have 60 gigs of files and no backup comp. until Wednesday.

Any help would be most welcome though as stated it's not urgent as I am up and running.

A:USB Keyboard not detected


Using your ps2 kb, go to your bios settings & enable usb/legacy keyboard support. save & exit.
Try your usb kb again

hope this helps

I have a Compaq 5838 (Athelon motherboard). I am running XP SP2. Suddenly, the keyboard is no longer being detected. I replaced the keyboard, but the problem still exists. I suspect that the connection has gone bad, but it could be a bios problem. Could there be a problem with SP2? How do I upgrade the bios if the keyboard doesn't work?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

A:What to do if keyboard not detected?

Forget about upgrading the BIOS - if it worked before its not something a BIOS upgrade will fix.

Do you get a message that the keyboard was not detected before Windows starts, ie. as soon as the computer is turned on or does this happen in Windows? If at the very beginning then its is most likely the port - in which case you can get a USB keyboard.

It could be Windows if it only does not work in Windows - have you tried the keyboard outside of Windows? Try getting into the BIOS or into Safe Mode - if you can do either then its a Windows driver/software problem. If you can get into Safe Mode then you can remove the Keyboard from Device Manager and uninstall any keyboard software from Add/Remove Programs if there is any.

A:Usb keyboard not detected

Only additional thing I can think of is to check the pnp settings in the bios.
It also would not hurt to go to the power options in control panel
click change plan settings
click change advanced power settings
expand usb settings and make sure usb power suspend is disabled.

My friend has a Dell PC that is running windows XP. I noticed that her computer was loading very slowly at start - up. Therefore I disabled all of her start up items and was planning on restoring the important ones after the computer booted back up. I have done this on my laptop many times without anything going wrong. On starting the computer back up I came to a black screen before windows booted up. It said press delete to enter the set up. Unfortunately I could not do this as the keyboard was not working. The keyboard and mouse are attached through the old plug system, not a USB port. My guess is that disabling the start up items may have affected the keyboard/mouse from working. I was thinking of a few options to fix the problem.

1. Put in a plug and play keyboard with a USB connection and hope this works.
2. Attaching my laptop to the PC via a VGA chord and having full access to my keyboard.
3. starting up in safety mode and enabling all the start up items and then booting in normal mode.

Are these options good ones, any other's you would recommend. Thanks for any tips.

A:Keyboard not detected!

Disabling the startup shouldnt effect the keyboard if they are ps/2, try powering the pc fully off, disconnecting and reconnecting the mouse and keyboard (remember the colour coding) or if not colour coded and doesnt work just try the keyboard in the other port.

I cannot get my keyboard to work when I boot up. I just got a INTEL D915GAG D915PSY LGA SOCKET 775 to replace the same motherboard I had that died. When I boot up the lights on the keyboard flash and then I get the message at the bottom of the screen that says press f2 to enter setup press f12 to boot from network. Pressing the buttons does nothing. There is also a message on the screen that says USB Legacy ....... Detected and Legacy Keyboard .........Detected. I have tried 3 different keyboards; two ps/2 and one usb. None of them work. I removed the battery to reset BIOS but this did nothing. I also removed all hardware except 1 stick of ram and booted as "bare bones" as possible, still no luck. I am completely baffled. Anyone have any ides?

A:Keyboard(s) detected but won't work

Blow out the socket with canned air such as dust-off?
You might want to try installing a separated USB PC Card in the first available PC Card slot, and try again...
There are also PCI cards you can obtain cheaply that will allow the installation of the old keyboard with the round socket and plug... work well.
Then if they don't work, it may be time to replace the motherboard...

This is extremely weird. I've used this keyboard plenty of times, I see my external hard drive light up, so I tried that usb port, but still nothing. The computer will boot past the bio and go to the login screen, but neither my keyboard or mouse will work. It stopped working while browsing youtube and I restarted my pc. I tried it on my laptop and both my mouse and keyboard work. I'm not sure what's going on because it's not detecting it even in the bios?
