Having problems with your IBM NetVista PC Desktop ?

I cant use my keyboard in BIOS setup - IBM NetVista PC Desktop


Answers :

What type of connector have you got on your keyboard. Is it USB or the older PS/2 type (round 6 pin purple thing?)

USB keyboards can be problematic when working with the BIOS. It is usually possible to enable a setting in the BIOS setup pages to enable them to work but, as you've probably guessed!) you need a PS/2 type keyboard to allow you to make the changes in the first place!

The other option is to by a PS/2 to USB adaptor. They should be available from any good computer shop.

Hope this helps!
