Usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

SOURCE: i key board is not working and its new

Check in the back of your computer and make sure that the keyboard connector (which may be purple and round) is plugged into the purple connector on the back of the computer and not the green one these are PS2 connectors. If your keyboard is USB I would try connecting it in other USB slots and making sure it works. Make sure you turn the computer off if it is the purple PS2 connector before you unplug and re insert the connector. If it is a USB connector, you can leave the computer on. Just make sure to restart. Hope this helps, if not, let me know.

This is a system board POST/BIOS error code (nothing todo with Windows). The ERROR 210: is a standard POST (Power On Self Test) errormessage that indicates an error with the keyboard. The error condition is thata keyboard scan code was received from the keyboard when none was expected,after the keyboard was reset.

If this occurs most of the time when you power on yoursystem, then it indicates that a key is sticking down or the key mechanical orelectrical parts are broken. Sometimes blowing out and cleaning out around thekeys will resolve this problem. Otherwise, you need to replace your keyboardwith a new (or at least a working) one.

Receive a drive one \error not found message


The keyboard has a feature (and associated button) called F-Lock. By default, when the computer boots, F-Lock is turned on. In the F-Lock mode, rather than sending the standard key commands for the function keys, the keyboard sends special alternate commands (like print for F7 and save for F8) that are configured in the iTouch program. In order to force the keyboard to send the standard function key commands, you must TURN OFF F-Lock by pressing the F-Lock button! Oh, and by the way, there are no indicator lights on the keyboard, and the F-Lock button is an always up momentary button - just like the keys on the keyboard, so there is no way to tell what state it is in, other than by pressing it and then pressing an F key to see what happens!

Soyo KT400L-2AA5 Motherboard - CMOS checksum error - Defaults loa


This message is usually accompanied by another more explicit, like: "Memory changed from 1GB to 2GB. Press F1 to continue". The message should display and go away after pressing F1. Since you cannot press F1 because the keys do nothing, chances are your keyboard is disconnected, which should display a message indicating this failure.
Try pressing the ScrLk (Scroll Lock) key as messages are being displayed to catch all
messages (they go by quickly) and stop them before they disappear.
If that's the case, then reconnect the keyboard and try again.
Good luck!

ERROR CODE "0210:KEY STUCK 39


I got the 0210 stuck key error on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61, pc would not bootup, made sure keyboard was connected and cleaned with aircan and then went into bios and via F1 on startup, then went to CONFIG then to Keyboard/Mouse then I disabled the TrackPoint. Boots up fine now but the red nipple mouse is disabled due to action mentioned above. Looks like a warranty fix for Lenovo since this is a newer laptop. If it was out of warranty i would just skip using it and leave it disabled. The trackpad works fine.

Emachines


Make sure the power is completely off. Turn the power back on. Try using Esc key, F1, or the delete key. If you press the wrong key, it will give yoiu a keyboard error indicating an option to press the correct key. I'm pretty sure one of those keys will work on an emachine.

Let me know.
