I have recently started to use a Saitek Eclipse 3 keyboard. I am very pleased with the keyboard in normal use, but have one small problem. I cannot access the BIOS, or Safe Mode using the f keys on start-up. I have checked the USB legacy is on, but still no joy. If I disconnect the Saitek, and connect a PS2 keyboard, all is well. This is very inconvenient and I was wondering if there is a fix or workaround for this. I know I can get into safe mode via msconfig but this involves allowing everything to load first, and does not help with opening the BIOS. I would prefer to do this from a cold startup.
From what I've learned with my Saitek Eclipse 2 keyboard which is also USB and also illuminated when booting up the keyboard turns on and off a couple of times during the boot. I have no problem entering the BIOS but there is a limited time in order to do so, usually when the keyboard illuminates the first time after boot.
