Well I have to do a reformat do to viruses. I was able to save everything but I can't reformat now becuase My USB keyboard won't work to "press any key to boot from CD" I relise this prob has something to do with the Drivers not working until windows starts. If I get an adapter that converts USB to PS/2 will that solve my problem? Or do I have to get a new PS/2 keyboard?

Keyboard not detected on boot

Question
My USB keyboard is not detected on boot. I get a "keyboard error" from the BIOS and cannot operate during boot up. However, the keyboard works fine in Windows. What's wrong?

Answer
It may be that your BIOS does not inherently support a USB keyboard. In your BIOS, you might need to enable USB Legacy Support or USB Keyboard support. Check with your system manufacturer for information on getting into and using the BIOS.

If you can't enable USB support from your BIOS, then your keyboard may not work in DOS. In this case, try running your DOS program in a DOS prompt within Windows. The keyboard should function since Windows determines keyboard support.

If you installed mouseware / iTouch, uninstall it and it should behave like a standard keyboard

If you have another keyboard, turn it to standard keys if it has that, then use it to boot your PC
