I recently wanted to access the BIOS to change my boot sequence and could not do it, after a lot of mucking around I discovered the BIOS does not support the microsoft wireless optical desktop I have, this is a USB device. Where can I change the settings, I now have a ps2 keyboard as well which works but but wish to solve the original problem, THANKS in Advance Moksha

well, depending on age of the motherboard, and make and model. you may be able to enable usb keyboard use, you may not. need to know the make and model of motherboard.

Get yourself one of those USB-PS2 adaptors. They often are included with USB keyboards. Then, when needed, you just insert the adaptor to access BIOS on boot-up.

Your BIOS may be like mine.

I have the ability to enable USB support in DOS-mode, meaning that I can employ USB devices initially.

Take a look around, if it has that feature, enable it and try booting.
