I want to install windows 7 but my keyboard shuts off when windows load. I have a maximus v extreme with an i7-3770k and 32 gigs of ram. I have tried different usb keyboards but still the same result. I have a wd 3tb hdd. I have a 1250 watt psu.
Sounds like you plugged your keyboard into a usb 3.0 port. Windows 7 doesnt come with usb 3.0 drivers. You need to download and install them manually so they can work after the installation. To be able to operate the keyboard during windows installation, just plug the keyboard into a usb 2.0 port.
Thanks Derico for the reply. When I plug the keyboard into the usb 2.0 slot the keyboard doesn't work at all. I figured that your pretty sharp, knowing which port I was plugged into without me saying. So can you tell me what I am missing
