    Angry [SOLVED] Keyboard not working on boot

    Okay so I built this computer and installed Ubuntu 10.10 LTS on it all was working fine until eventually my main drive died. I put in two new drives equaling up to 250 GB. Now I boot it into anything and my keyboard stops working. It works in BIOS. And it works in Windows. I've checked to see if it is being powered by BIOS and I know it isn't supposed to and it isn't. But it still doesn't work.
    I know this might be of use:

    81.9 GB Primary Master
    81.9 GB Primary Slave
    80 GB Secondary Slave
    DVD RW Secondary Master
    1 GB RAM
    AMD ATHLON CPU

    Fixed it Problem was the BIOS thought it was DOS and USB was not enabled for DOS Operating systems.

    If i were you I would sudo apt-get upgrade to 12.10

    The Latest and greatest Quantal Quetzal

    The minimum memory requirement for Ubuntu 12.10 is 768 MB of memory and 5 GB of disk space for Ubuntu Desktop. Note that some of your system's memory may be unavailable due to being used by the graphics card. If your computer has only the minimum amount of memory, the installation process will take longer than normal; however, it will complete successfully, and the system will perform adequately once installed.

    Surely this simple problem will be solved then

    sudo apt-get update && sudo do-release-upgrade

    Re: Keyboard not working on boot

    It shouldn't matter, as your keyboard and mouse were working before you changed the drives, but you could check the BIOS and see if it has a "legacy" setting (as in USB 1.x) and if that is disabled, then enable it.

    If you have more than one USB port, you can try the other.

    And yeah, you've probably already tried BOTH of these (since you aren't new to this) -- so please don't be insulted by my suggestions.
    Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Fixed it simple problem of BIOS thinking live CD's are DOS and not letting DOS use USB ports
