Question about Gigabyte Computers & Internet
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.

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

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.

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!

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
