Hi I was recently infected with the vundo virus and it really messed up my pc. I could clear my computer of the infection and return some stuff back to normal but Ive been having a weird problem and that is that when ever I boot my computer I can access the bios settings and move up and down and ect, but if I press f8 to boot the computer in safe mode it enters the menu but after that the keyboard becomes unresponsive. The numlock key turns on and off when I ramdomly press the keys. I tried putting the windows xp cd and when the computer detects the cd on the boot up when it says "press the enter key to boot up from cd" the keyboard becomes unresponsive again. The thing is that when windows xp loads up everything is working alright. Thanks in advance ^_^

Hello,

If you go to the devive manager, do you have the correct drivers installed?
Regards,

Alan.

Is this a USB keyboard? Make sure it's enabled in the BIOS. It says some like Legacy USB

Can you say how you fixed the problem so others with a similar problem can correct it.
Regards,

I believe enabling legacy/DOS USB support in the BIOS solved it.

Though the enabling of the legacy USB worked. Would anyone happen to know what causes this? I have the same issue but not sure why this worked because my keyboards (all 3 that I have are diff brands) and are all USB 2.0 and new keyboards. Is it a Spyware/Malware issue? Because I have seen it since my issue many different times, on different systems, though the commonality is they are all AMD machines. Is it specific to AMD MoBo's? :thumbsup:
