View Full Version : [ubuntu] USB Keyboard

January 26th, 2009, 11:39 AM
When I am in BIOS I have no issue using my USB Keyboard but when I am on the Screen to choose to boot to Windows or Linux I am unable to use it. I can plug in a non-USB and it will work fine. Anyone know how I can fix this?

Thank you in advance!

There should be a option in your bios settings to allow USB keyboards.

You may have to also set it in your BIOS to enable legacy USB as well.

In the BIOS there should be an option " Legacy USB support ".
If you enable this it should be ok.

Hmmm strange. When I go into BIOS, I don't have an option for "USB Keyboard Support", "USB Legacy Support", nor PNP mode. All I have is "Resources Controlled By" and it is set to 'Auto'.

OK for people who may have the same issue that I had I will tell you where I found this option in BIOS. If you find yourself going to the link that xpod gave me (about 3 posts up) and the paths are not the same, this is where I found mine.

Integrated Peripherals>OnChip PCI Device>USB Device Setting>
-USB functions - Enabled
-USB Keyboard Support Via - BIOS

I hope this helps someone.:p

Thank you everyone for your assistance.
