Windows 7: My Wireless Logitech K520 Keyboard won't let me access BIOS.

My Wireless Logitech K520 Keyboard won't let me access BIOS.

Fortunately for me, I had an ancient PS 2 in my closet so I solved my problem that way. Lucky for me this time.

The whole experience led me to wonder if someone can design a flash drive to create a "Del" keystroke at boot up?

For example, when you need to enter BIOS, you put in the flash drive, reboot, and it creates a key signal for you independent of the keyboard.

Is this even possible?

Mine is not an Award BIOS, but an ASRock UEFI so the photo doesn't apply.

However, I solved the problem:

BIOS/Advanced/ACPI Config/USB keyboard/remote power on - changed to "enabled".

Thanks for getting me straightened out!

Thanks for posting your fix. This is bound to help someone out.
Asus has a neat tool you can add to Windows to force booting into the bios on the next boot. The other issue is the time to press key to enter bios zooms by before you can press it even if your keyboard works OK.

Do you get Asus and AsRock mixed up as easily as I do? LOL
