Hi all,
Not sure when this happend.
I have dual boot (winxp) which has been working for over a year now.
But for some reason recently, grub wont recognise the keyboards arrow keys. ie cant change menu selection. in fact it wont recognise keyboard at all it seems. Pressing enter wont work either. I have to wait for the timeout.

The arrows work before hand (like in bios settings) and after once ubuntu has booted. Just not in the grub menu

Its something to with the USB wireless keyboard. If i replace it for standard PS2 kybd it works.
