    Re: Keyboards Not Working on BIOS setup

    Are you kidding me?
    What did I just say?
    I can't use any Keyboards, I want to know how to turn all of this stuff on. Like I said, I'm trying to do this without a Floppy Disk drive, and I'd like to be able to setup my bios. But I can't enter any of the setup windows because it doesn't respond to a PS/2 Keyboard either.

    Re: Keyboards Not Working on BIOS setup

    Keyboards are enabled by default at least on any PC I've ever come across.. So is it getting as far as trying to load the OS or is it freezing on the initial splash screen? If its trying to load the OS (which is not going to be there on a newly built PC) after going through the self testing stuff and detecting drives, it'll say something like "BOOT DRIVE FAILURE". If its freezing on the first screen then there is likely some other problem (CPU, memory etc.).

    Re: Keyboards Not Working on BIOS setup

    Thanks Papa,

    I will state that is not my problem, but I think I know what is.

    I've been doing some reading around the internet and I've heard that the Keyboards will not be supplied power if the Motherboard does not detect the hard drive. So... I did some trouble shooting, and I'm certain that the problem is Hard Drive related.

    My problem is I have only one IDE port installed on my Motherboard. I have a single IDE Harddrive, and a IDE DVD-DL drive. Despite these sections getting power... the DVD-DL drive spins on and reads disks.. The screen isn't changing not matter what setup I use for the hard drive configuration. So obviously, I have to replan my approach.

    Currently, I'm readjusting the guts of the system to put my DVD-DL drive as the MASTER and the IDE Hard drive as the SLAVE. I'm certainly this will resolve my issues and allow me to get the basics working until I can securely install my SATA Hardrives at a later time.

    **** Question:

    Once I install the BIOs and OS system, I can remove my Hard drives from the IDE bus and switch them to SATA, yes? I purchased a IDE-to-SATA converter to do just that. Or do I have to keep one hard drive wired to the IDE bus at all times?

    you can chop and change between PATA and SATA at all, I did away with PATA drives as soon as I could

    Re: Keyboards Not Working on BIOS setup

    I once plugged a faulty USB device into my motherboard, and it "blew" every port, including PS/2, serial, etc. The PC still worked fine, well if you call a PC with zero input devices fine. Hope it's not the problem in your case, needed (obviously) a new motherboard in mine.
