micro innovations kb400i keyboard. fkeys, left ctl and others don't work nor for bios


now using a micro innovations kb400i turbo-trak keyboard and I can't even access the bios before bootup (f2). It's a standard ps/2 plug and it's gotta a qwerty setup (small backspace with big enter key).

So basically the fkeys don't work and the 6 key doesn't work (it does on number lock pad). There are some others that don't work as well. I can't use left ctl to copy and paste which I always use however right ctl works.

I'm running absolute linux 13.1.0 fully updated and the keyboard layout was set to u.s.a. and basic by default. I've changed it now to be usa and dvorak but I still gotta reboot.

So far I don't know if it's a faulty keyboard or maybe this ones just quirky to setup. According to various websites it's a qwerty keyboard and dvorak is the next closes thing.

Any ideas? (i'm still typing with it right now) I don't wanna have to buy a new keyboard as I'm broke. I hope someone else with this keyboard had the same issue and solved it...

Here's a link to the exact same keyboard I have http://www.amazon.com/Micro-Innovati.../ref=de_a_smtd

Thanks

From the link you posted it looks like a very basic keyboard. I'd bet that it's just died.
Borrow a similar keyboard and see if the issue persists. Good luck
