A while back I bought a MS Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000. Fine. Works, suits my needs. The only problem was that my keyboard and (Logitech USB mx610 cordless) mouse were not recognized when I used an Acronis rescue disk. I updated the bios on the board (badly needed...F3 to F11) and all was well.
To get into the bios, I had to plug in an old PS/2 keyboard, even though all the appropriate USB settings were set to allow the keyboard to work in 'DOS' mode. So, the bios is updated, my Acronis issues are resolved, but wierdly enough, I was able to get in the bios yesterday with the USB keyboard, but not today.
All the appropriate settings are still enabled (i.e., USB 1.0
Controller:Enabled, USB 2.0 Controller:Enabled, USB Keyboard
Support:Enabled, USB Mouse Support:Enabled. There is no USB Legacy Support setting, but according to Gigabyte, the Keyboard & Mouse Support settings cover that (and then there's the fact that the keyboard works in Acronis Rescue mode).
I have changed some of the settings, but none that should prevent the
keyboard from being recognized in 'DOS' (I think).
Any ideas? It's be nice not to have to plug in a PS/2 board everytime I
wanted to get into the bios.
Sorry if formatting is off...copied and pasted from a usenet post that wouldn't show up.
Thanks for any ideas,
