I have a keyboard that plugs into the usb port on my computer. Recently I needed to boot my computer in safe mode but my computer does'nt start the usb drivers until well after I need to press f8. My question is : Is there a way to make so my computer starts the usb drivers at start-up? (Note: buying a keyboard that plugs into the keyboard slot is a last resort. I really love this keyboard.)

Thanks in Advance,
In space, no one can hear you scream......

Enable USB in the BIOS

USB is often disabled by Default in the BIOS. To enable USB in the BIOS one or more of the following statements must be true.

USB Keyboard - DOS or Enabled (Even if you have NO USB Keyboard)

Legacy USB Support - Enabled


Assign IRQ for USB - Enabled (Some combinations of OS and BIOS version require this setting to be Disabled).

If there are NO references to USB in the BIOS setup, your BIOS Version Needs To Be Updated.
