Closed Windows 7 Keyboard Failure during boot Tags: Dell Studio Xps Windows 7 Boot Keyboard Failure Keyboards Last response: December 8, 2011 11:18 PM in Windows 7 Share jaanthud December 2, 2011 2:39:06 PM Suddenly my Windows 7 dell XPS says Keyboard Failure during boot sequence. I can't "strike the F2 key to continue or F2 to run the settup utility" because the keyboard isn't recognized. I put in my windows system repair disk that I made few months ago, but still get the same error. I swap out the keyboard for another but still get the same error. Any help out there?

Also try a different port if you are re-using the same one. jaanthud December 2, 2011 3:56:08 PM Unplugging the computer got me to System Startup. How simple but how effective. Thanks!
