Microsoft Wireless MultiMedia Keyboard 1.1

  BlueValour 05:26 26 Oct 2006

I upgraded my keyboard, from version 1.0., that was sticking. The old keyboard had two leads
from the receiver that went into the small, round keyboard ports (I think).
The new one has the receiver plug into the USB port. The problem is that I
can't get keyboard control until Windows has booted up. This is a problem
because I need the Enter key to make an OS choice during bootup. I am having
to use the old keyboard to get to Windows when the new one takes over.
Hardly ideal!. Suggestions, please?

I have the same problem with my wired keyboard which is USB. I keep an old ps2 keyboard handy for when I need to go into setup. Theres probably an easier answer but I don't know what it is.

1. Go into the BIOS (repeatedly tap the Delete key during the boot process before Windows launches).
2. Go to Integrated Peripherals (or similar) and enable 'USB Legacy Support' for all devices.
3. Save and exit.
4. When the computer reboots you will have keyboard control!

Finally got around to trying this. I can't find an option to enable 'USB Legacy Support' for all devices but USB keyboard is enabled - it still doesn't work. I'm not going to worry as my new pc should arrive in a week or so. If I have the same problem with that I'll probably get a new ps2 keyboard.
