How does it lock the keyboard? What connection does the keyboard use?

  buel 21:01 28 Oct 2008

Hi there, it is vista and no i dont have the original cd/dvd im afraid...

The keyboard is connected via usb cable and when i say it is locked i mean i cannot get into safe mode!

Did you create a recovery disc when you first got the computer ?

What make and model computer.

You might be lucky with a restore/recovery partition.

Try tapping F10 or F11 on startup.

Have you tried a different keyboard ?

Hi Skidzy, let me get back to you regarding the make and model, i cannot access safemode unfortunately...

I have seen this problem before and was due to a shut down error.
Remove the keyboard from the tower and fire up the computer and then plug the keyboard in again.

This may result in a forced shutdown..... lets see what happens.

You need to use a wired PS2 Keyboard to check BIOS settings On USB Legacy to make sure that it is enabled

Hi there, sorry for the confusion with this, the pc problem is actually a friend's and im trying to help him remotely(if you see what i mean), ok here we go: It is an XP operation system and Skidzy's idea about unplugging the keyboard worked and my friend did get to safe mode but couldn't go any further...
