Hi all. I have been agonizing over this issue for a couple days. I hope someone can help me find some closure on this. ISSUE
: I cannot enter BIOS when the BIOS configuration jumper is set to 'normal'; it seems that the keyboard is unresponsive. If I set the jumper to 'configure' the system automatically enters BIOS, but the keyboard is then unresponsive.
I recentely built a new computer:
MOBO: Intel DG45FC.
CPU: Intel E7400
RAM: Corsair XMS2 (2 x 2 GB) PC2-6400 DDR2 800
HDD: Western Digital Blue Caviar 250GB
ODD: Sony CD/DVD drive
On its face, everything is working just fine. But, I want to enter the BIOS for various reasons, one of which is to update it. As stated, when the BIOS configuration jumper is set to 'normal,' I will repeatedly hit F2, but nothing happens.
If I put the jumper to 'configure,' I get pushed into BIOS automatically, but the keyboard is unresponsive. In both instances, the keyboard has power, but it just doesn't work. Keyboard type: Logitech Illuminated wired USB keyboard.
I tried resetting the CMOS - didn't work. I tried updating the BIOS with the latest BIOS update from Intel (express method through Windows environment). The update went through, but it still doesn't work. I tested a new keyboard - didn't work.
I researched online and found ONE nearly identical
issue someone was having with their Intel board. See System Setup BIOS Freezes! urgent - Intel® Software Network
But, they ultimately resolved it by simply updating the BIOS. Once they updated the BIOS, it would recognize the keyboard at all critical times.
Can anyone shed some light on this? I am kind of at a loss.
Thanks much in advance.
