Keyboard Fails on XP Setup

  Legslip 12:49 13 Jun 2010

Trying to do a reformat on a Dell Inspiron. When I get to the Windows Setup screen the PC fails to recognise any keyboard input so I can't reinstall. Using the original Dell PS2 kbd and have tried another PS2.
Any thoughts?

Bios is set to recognise usb keyboard probably.
You will need to borrow one to change settings in the bios.

Thanks Ashdav. That seems to have sorted it. Went into BIOS and disabled USB and then the PS2 worked.
