hi guys ,i can't find any suitable thread / to post this so i post this here, if there is any thread where i can post about keyboard please let me know :) 


I have this mechanical keyboard and it has this problem: It wont function at all unless is in desktop, meaning that I can't select OS to boot / enter bios / enter safe mode etc. It only starts functioning once my desktop is loaded or in the login screen, why is that so?? and how can i fix it?? i use othger normal keyboards and all of them have no problem with it

Is it a USB keyboard? Many require and come with a USB-PS/2 connector. There are often keyboard and/or mouse specific ports in the back.

Occasionally USB devices just don't function in the bios. PS2 connector is the best way

if you are able to get it working with a ps2 keyboard or adapter, try looking for a bios setting something to do with USB devices/hardware and set it to legacy mode

Ive had certain mice not work in my bios. Try the PS/2 connector to know for sure.
