hey guys, we recently had a bad thunder storm which knocked out the power and fried my motherboard. I went out and bought a new one.
I installed correctly but when i power on it loads to: sorry due to recent hardware change windows did not start correctly (or something like that) where you choose start normally, last known config, safe mode etc.
The thing is, i cant even get into the BIOS because its not recognizing my keyboard...? any ideas? thanks!
You're keyboard may also have been fried by the lightning.....
Did you check to see if it works on another PC.?
Actuality It may pay to check every component that was connected to see if anything else may have been fried.
Is your motherboard a evga nForce 680i SLI as stated in you sig.
I just had a quick look at the pdf for this motherboard, on pg:108 under USB Config is a section for enabling and disabling USB keyboard/Mouse support. I've never had to change the default setting in order to get either to work, but just a suggestion.
Acronis® Universal Restore allows you to restore to different hardware or to a virtual machine, providing complete disaster recovery. Acronis® Universal Restore prepares you for even the most unforeseen events.
I don't think that acronis universal restore will help.
Seeing that your keyboard is unrecognized from boot up. "it kinda makes it hard to install it anyway"
Do you think that you may have purchased a faulty board..?
I was about to make a topic just like this when I saw yours.
Bought a new motherboard and some other stuff today, But can't find the keyboard, so I can't enter BIOS.. And the comp resets after the bios check, so it's just standing there loop-rebooting every 10 sec..
Board is a ga-ep45-ds3 (gigabyte) tried with 2 different USB keyboards and a ps/2 keyboard. Nothing.
