GA-Z68AP-D3 wont recognise keyboard

Turn on PC BIOS starts post wont recognise any of 7 different PS2 and USB keyboards, turns power off and then starts again, no error messages just a continuous cycle of on and off. Keyboards all indicate power through both PS2 and USB connections by means of led on KB but it always goes off and then back to the on/off cycle

This sounds very much like a faulty motherboard if it continually reboots. Try accessing the BIOS using the F8 key, however check you manual to make sure your motherboard uses the F8 key. If you can access the BIOS, it would be worth doing a complete reset to factory defaults and see if this fixes the problem. If you cannot access the BIOS, then you will be looking at a new motherboard.

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 3000 keyboard error

Hi Sir Another fix you could try is looking in your device manager and checking what keyboard device is registered if it says that you are using a ps2 then you need to uninstall the device and then close the device manger after which you should unplug your key board and restart your computer when you hear the bleep reconnect the keyboard into your USB port and see if this works if not you need to check if you have enough power to your keyboard from your USB port as some USB keyboards need power is your USB port 2.0 if not try to upgrade your USB to 2.0 from the usual 1.1 ports Hope this helps Paddy

SOURCE: On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.

One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.

SOURCE: Dell E521 cannot get to bios with usb keyboard.

Alright guys, had same issue and have going around it for 4 days...same issue= USB k-board/mouse not responding when dell e521 was booted.....and you know the rest...after trying multiple keyboards and different scenarios... I finally got a solution (at least for me) MY problem was that one of the USB ports (front of PC) was broken and I wasnt aware of it, and the pins were SHORTING inside the port (center pins touching the metal) I had noticed that the KEYBOARD at STARTUP was kind of flashing ramdomly and it would be recognized fater the splash screen and it was due to the SHORT.SO BE PATIENTE AND CHECK ALL USB PORT FOR DAMAGE OR DEBRIS-MAKE SURE ONLY KEYBOARD, MOUSE ARE THE ONLY USB DEVICES HOOKED UP! so there you have it.....Enjoy your fixing!

Use an older keyboard on a newer computer? My wife likes the feel of the old one.


why not buy a real keyboard. for USB?
vast types, even for $8.
hp what you never side what HP puter.??
hp made them for 33 years, 1984 to now.
endless.
my guess newer HP, like 10 years or newer
and has USB ports
then you found a USB to PS/2 adaptor (vast types exist)
but many dont work. right.
btw this is classic failure from 1999 to to now.
endless posts world wide,,,
the trouble is the PS2 keyboard, send commands very different that USB does.
Try this go to bios and turn on legacy USB>
maybe it can see he keyboad at boot (bios sees t first)
then BIOS passes this discovery to windows 10..
ive not touched or seen a PS2 keyboard, in years.
like year 2000?> 18 long years ago.
im old. worked them all.
PS/2 >>>>>adaptor >>>> USB modern system.
the adaptor must do 2 things, send power correctly to the KBD.
then translate PS/2 sings to USB sigs.
then BIOS needs to understand plug and play IDs from PS2
if missing IDs, or garbled, its born dead.

good luck there.
btw your pc is not PS2 certified so....

Hi ive got a gigabyte ga-g41m motherboard and when i turn on my pc it wont power up my usb keyboard in order for me to set up bios it stays on the post screen


test the usb lead make sure its not faulty or try another keyboard

try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.

dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts

The keyboard works outside of the windows 7 environment but once it turns on the keyboard and mouse dont work


Have you tried a different keyboard and mouse?, your keyboard and mouse on a different pc?
Is it usb? ps2 wireless?
Only the wireless option would need a driver
Usb will work if they are ok
ps2 may need settings changed in the bios to make it work.

is it a usb keyboard? usb keyboard support is probably off in the bios, so it will not recognise it untill windows loads driver for it. if you have an older keyboard around with the old purple PS2 plug on it, that should work for you to get into the bios. then turn on USB keyboard and mouse support.

Ga-6vxd7 keyboard wont work to boot from cd


Hi,
Plug the USB keyboard into another port (preferably one at the back) restart the PC and enter the BIOS again, this time go through the BIOS and set all the USB controllers to enabled, hit F10 save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will restart and you should now be able to use the USB keyboard to install the OS.
Please post back if you need anymore advice.


Good luck

Well this problem has nothing to do with your Operating System. This has everything to do with your System Bios.

Basically, the first thing you need to determine is "Is it USB or PS2?"

If it's USB:
1) Is it installed in a USB Hub? It might not have enough power, try a different USB port.
2) Go into the system bios. Look for an option that says "Enable USB Support" make sure it's enabled.

If it's PS2:
1) The connection might be lose, turn the computer off, unplug it, plug it back in.
2) Try a different PS2 Keyboard, same problem? Your PS2 ports are failing, buy a USB Keyboard.
