I bought a straight-off-the-shelf computer (HP Pavilion 500-326) with Windows 8.1 preinstalled.


Problem is that whenever I turn the computer on it doesn't recognise my keyboard. I have to restart it, and then it works ok.


I have tried using various USB ports, different keyboards, the Hardware Troubleshooter, Updating drivers, and nothing works.


One suggestion I keep coming across is to disable xHCI mode in BIOS, but I can't find where this is. And to be honest, I'm not that familiar with BIOS anyway as I just use computers for basic day-to-day tasks.


Does anyone have any suggestions as it's completely doing my fruit!
