BIOS Settings


I have had problems with BIOS not recognising my key board. How do I change the BIOS settings and what should they be? I know its F2 to get into BIOS but then I am lost?

...If you can press "F2" then it must be working[?].

If your system can handle both usb and PS2, it should detect both.
Perhaps check the peripheral settiings, there may be an additional k/b setting.

labtec keyboard

Hello,

I see in your specifications that it is a cordless keyboard. The keyboard and the receiver (usually with USB-plug) should communicate over the same channel. Both have a small button to change the channel. Try this and remove the batteries of both to reset the channel. If your mouse is cordless too, you have to check it afterwards. More details are in the manual. By the way, are the batteries still ok?

Good luck !!!

Ronald
