USB keyboard not working in the bios

2018-11-12, 10:45 AM

Good morning.

I have a Desktop PC "M92p Desktop (ThinkCentre)" and I have a problem when I'm in the Bios.

I have a USB keyboard connected to the computer, so when I click on F1 to go into the bios it lets me in, but later, when I'm inside the bios, the keyboard does not work. Only the wirless mouse works, but my USB keyboard seems to be stuck as if it were not recognized in the bios. I do not have PS / 2 ports but only USB ports.

How can I fix and enable the keyboard in the bios so you can install windows cleanly?

Please help me I'm desperate

Solved! See the solution

Is it a standard wired keyboard, like the one that came with your system?  Or is a specialized keyboard, like for gaming, or a handicapped person, or for using a specific app on the PC?

Yes.  Like the one that came with this system, or for a HP or Dell.  Just not a gaming keyboard, it requires drivers that load when the system normally boots into Windows.  That doesn't happen when going into the BIOS, therefore doesn't work beyond the F1 key.

I do not know how I did not think about it. I tried to connect a usb keyboard and it works perfectly. The gaming keyboard worked up to F1 and then nothing. With this instead now everything works perfectly and everything is solved. Thank you so much
