So.. to get through BIOS on a new PC I assume I can't use a USB Keyboard?

Well if you are willing to get down and dirty you can try to reset the cmos. It might fix the issue but its very strange that it wouldn't accept it by default. How old is this machine? Do you know what the motherboard model is?


I just watched a video about resetting cmos/motherboard and I am tempted to try it.

On the screen it says "ECS ELITEGROUP BLACK SERIES".. not sure if that is what you're looking for. as i said.. I am not the best w/this stuff.

well, i can only assume after messing w/a bunch of stuff related to resetting the motherboard, that something isn't connected correctly, effecting the USB ports... or I need the old piece of **** keyboard.

Out of curiosity you have had the keyboards plugged in when you booted the pc?
