i cant open bios, keyboard dont react

Posted 05 November 2016 - 11:59 AM

Its a strange problem. I had ps/2 mouse and keyboard, and notice that didnt work anymore. I tried everything, update drivers, delete and install again, and didnt work. Ok, its dead. I got usb mouse and keyboard, and everything is ok, but I now want to reinstall OS, and I cant enter bios, nothing happend when press del or f2. I am using windows 10.
I tried reset bios, but nothing happend. Does it possible that motherboard dont support keyboard before boot process?
IT is MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 motherboard.
How can I now reinstall windows? I don't want refresh, instead, I want clean new install...

That looks like a pretty old motherboard. (DDR2, AM2+ socket; has to be at least 6-8 years old?)

Motherboards today generally have USB support turned on during boot by default, but that wasn't always the case. For a board this old, it's perfectly plausible that USB is turned off during boot, and would require you to manually turn it on in the BIOS, if it's even an option at all.

If the PS/2 ports are dead, and this is the case, you don't have a great deal of options. Perhaps if you replace the hard-drive with a formatted one it'll boot into the CD/DVD drive instead? (Depends on BIOS settings.)

Yes, that is exactly what he meant. You should replace your hard drive with a new one that has windows installed on it previously.

Before installing a new HD or OS, I would first verify the keyboard & mouse elsewhere.

Also, how are you resetting the bios, if the keyboard isn't working?

Also, be aware that the keyboard in BIOS is different than the keyboard in the OS. These are different environments. Meaning, if it is not working in BIOS, replacing your OS isn't likely to fix the issues as BIOS environment exists PRIOR to your OS initializing or loading. I would get it working in BIOS before even LOOKING at formatting the HD or reinstalling the OS.

I believe you donít need to get in BIOS in to re-install Windows.
You can start installation directly from Boot Options (F12).
Try to get in Boot Option so you can reinstall Windows.

Thank you,
Coralee
