Lenovo G50-80 keyboard not working in BIOS mode

2018-12-19, 10:54 AM

Hello All,


I have this lenovo laptop with Ubuntu and Windows 7 installed in it.


Now I wanted to format my system with only Windows 7 (using bootable USB) but strangely when I plugin the pendrive and start the system with the small button next to the charging point (my bad for not knowing the button name) it shows the bios menu but the direction keys in keyboard do not work.


I tried to do so using an external USB keyboard but it still do not work. However the keyboard works fine once I select Ubuntu and log into the system.


Thanks in advance for any help.

Go into BIOS and disable secure boot, then try it. Sometimes this will lock out USB devices and prevent booting from them.
