First time post here...
An oddity, I want to see if there is anyone with some sort of idea as to what is going on.
I am running an Intel DG31PR. I was using a USB Apple Keyboard that I have had for years with no problem. I gave the keyboard to my son and went out and bought me a new Apple Pro Keyboard (I Like the look and feel if you must know).
When I got home I plugged it in and the computer froze before I could even get into the BIOS setup screen. After some playing around, I figured out that I had to unplug the keyboard, wait until Windows XP started, and then could plug it in at the XP splash screen. Once it was plugged in Windows boots normally and everything is peachy. I am even able to restart my computer and it runs fine. However, if I turn the power to the machine off for longer than a few seconds, I am back at square one.
I have tried to research this to no avail. I have seen recommendations to make sure USB Legacy is on in the Bios, which it is. I have made a few adjustments in my regedit, but still the problem exists.
It almost acts as if it needs power to the keyboard before it will do anything. But I would think that even with that, it would not lock my system up.
Does anyone have ANY ideas?
