BIOS Doesn't See Wireless Keyboard and Mouse

Postby OneSpirit » Sat Jan 30, 2010 2:48 pm

I just gotthe microsoft keyboard 3000... my bios doesn't see it and I see nothing in the bios to get it to see it ... the only possible setting is disabling the warning about no mouse and keyboard ... I have this mobo Is it too old to see the keyboard and mouse? There would be no problem because it works when windows boots up, but I have a dual boot and can't boot into XP because the keyboard doesn't work. Will I have to use my ps2 keyboard in order to do the dual boot?

Probably the motherboard, at a guess. Older motherboards didn't provide power to the USB on boot, at least not enough for a USB receiver.

I was afraid of that ... tech changes so quick ... all I know is the mobo bios doesn't give me any options ... which sucks ... now I have to use my old mouse and keyboard if I want to go into XP ... life is so hard at times ... :roll:

Use a standard keyboard, boot and go into the BIOS. Look on the BIOS pages for a line that reads "Enable USB Legacy Devices" or so worded. May also be listed as "USB keyboard support" and "USB mouse support".
This will allow the BIOS to detect a mouse or keyboard via the USB port prior to the OS coming into action. That mobo model should have the features, being a Pentium IV.

Keyboard's being detected, flashes at him. MS keyboard/mouse receivers don't use external power, they pull right off the USB port. If he's got USB 1.1, it won't be putting out enough juice to drive the receiver.

Okay ... I'm in the bios ... and the only thing I see is "USB configuration ... and when I go into that I see ... "high speed USB enable" ..."legacy USB support enable" ... "USB 2.0 lagacy support full speed" ... "USB Zip emulation type floppy" ... and that's it ...this is in the Advance tab. In other thing in the advance tab is ... "boot configuration" ... "peripheral configuration" ... "IDE configuration" ... "floppy configuration" "event log" ... "Video configuration" ... nothing to indicate the usb keyboard ... or mouse.

In my bios ... I have a "Main" tab ... "Advance" tab ... "Security" tab ... "Power" tab ... "boot" tab ... and "exit" tab ... nothing about usb keyboard or mouse ... in the boot section I have ...
"Silent boot - enable"
"Intel (R) Rapid BIOS boot - enable"
"PXE boot to LAN"
"USB boot - enabled"
"Boot device priority"
"Hard disc drive"
"Removable Devices"
"ATAPI CD-Rom drive"
"Display setup prompt - Yes"
"Keyboard detection warning - enabled"
"mouse detection warning - enabled"
"CD/DVD detection warning - enabled"
"Hard drive detect warning - enabled"
"Hard drive self diagnostic - enabled"

... and that's all I have in the bios ... I see nothing to get it to see a usb keyboard ...

If the board in question is that '845GRG' model in your Sig, it does have USB 2.0 support on up to 6 ports. Intel Product Guide:
Check the Hardware/Device Manager part of the System icon. Down at the bottom of the 'tree' would be USB devices. Two or more USB hubs should show as "enhanced". If not, then the proper drivers have not been installed, or the USB 2.0 high-speed feature is not enabled. Follow the process in this Intel guide as to enabling the USB 2.0 high-speed feature. That main Intel page has a driver update utility link, if needed.
Question: Do you have full access with any other USB 2.0 type devices? If not, then just this keyboard, then likely a fault with the product or the USB port in use. Connect the keyboard directly to one of the rear USB ports.. without use of a bridge or hub. Same for the mouse. Use a USB header plate for connection to any other USB internal ports, for other uses.
