Windows 7: Keyboard no power during windows resume loader.

Keyboard no power during windows resume loader.

Had a storm last night. Desktop was sleeping. Woke up this morning to windows resume loader. No time out on this menu for some extremely idiotic reason. USB keyboard has no power. Tried with a USB to PS/2 adapter and still no power. Tried another keyboard, didn't work neither. There's power on my USB rails for sure as I have tried plugging in headphones and they work. Can't even get into BIOS because keyboard just doesn't work. Currently resetting my BIOS.

Has anyone had this problem before?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

I ran into something similar, after some new hardware additions and reconnecting all my usb peripherals. I found that my keyboard wasn't working at boot up to allow me into my BIOS. What I found out was that the usb PCI card I have installed, is where I inadvertently plugged in my usb keyboard. The keyboard didn't get power until the usb PCI card got power then my keyboard would work. So I plugged the usb keyboard into mobo usb slots and bingo bango, keyboard was working properly and I had access to my BIOS.

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

In the early part of the boot process, where the BIOS still has control before handing over to the OS routines, USB functionality is enabled through the Legacy USB Support option in the BIOS. Normally, this is enabled by default in most BIOSes, but if it becomes disabled (either intentionally or through other means such as electrical transients that can occur during severe electrical storms), then it can give rise to this sort of problem. Resetting the BIOS should, hopefully, solve the problem. You might, however, need to both remove the battery AND use the motherboard jumper to reset it fully.
