Hello! :) 

I have tried to find an answered topic for this problem but there is not even a topic about my problem so i made one. :p 

My usb mouse (g700) works in BIOS but i can't access bios with my usb keyboard (USB Legacy support is enabled)
I use a PS/2 to enter BIOS.

Motherboard:Gigabyte GA-970A-D3P
I don't think that there is a hardware problem with the MOBO but i want some opinions about this.Thank you :)

Check the manual. Is it only certain USB ports enabled? I know it was with my Gigabyte board. How do you even get in the BIOS if the keyboard isn't recognized?

You could try swapping the mouse and keyboard and see what happens.

Every usb port has legacy usb support enabled and i have tried in every port.I get in BIOS with a PS/2 keyboard.

I'm at a loss. I read your manual and everything you did is right. You just may need to keep a ps2 keyboard on hand. If the mb is new you may want to RMA it. Sorry.

I don't think that it is the motherboard's problem because it recognizes the usb mouse and the keyboard is not a brand gaming like the mouse.i will test another usb keyboard on and i hope that it is the keyboard and not a problem on the MOBO,otherwise i will try to reset BIOS with the CMOS battery technique.
