Hello everyone, I've decided to reinstall now that I'm on a computer with a bigger hard drive ((My old computer decided to die.))


Anyways, for some reason this computer will not allow me to use my keyboard at bootup, which means I cannot select to start up in Kubuntu.


While looking on google, I've found out you can enable USB ports ((Which is what my keyboard is using.)) In Bios, sadly I'm not able to get to Bios due to my keyboard not coming on.
I've tried using a USB to PS2 converter, but that doesn't work either, it just says it cannot find my keyboard..


All of this being said, is there any way to get into bios or something while in windows? I really want to use Kubuntu again, but until this problem is fixed, I cannot. :(

Hi and if you can not get you hands on a PS2 keyboard then you may search for you motherboard model and some manufactures will update bios through windows. This may allow a updated bios that will have usb keyboard support by default.
