the keyboard always works fine in bios and boot managers but when it goes to about any operating system it dosent work atall

 

a workaround for windows is to sleep and turn back on and will work again

 

however i cant get linux to sleep because there dosent appear to have a option even when its installed in the hard disk

 

also the keyboard dosent always not work it works sometimes but not others with linux have to keep resetting the pc to get it to work and its annoying !

 

also its a laptop keyboard i dont have a usb keyboard but i have a bluetooth keyboard will that work in windows or linux login screen?

Well, if the device has already been paired with the machine and you have waited until the Bluetooth service has come online there's no reason a Bluetooth keyboard shouldn't work just like a regular one.

 

I have a wireless keyboard/mouse combo that work through USB, and they don't work until USB polling has come online as part of the boot process, but that happens relatively quickly.  Not having used a Bluetooth keyboard in this context I have no idea of exactly where or when in the boot sequence Bluetooth would become active, but your keyboard will not work until it does.

Nor do I.

 

I suspect that something is wrong with how the keyboard ribbon cable is now seated, or that there is a defect in the keyboard, that only exhibits itself when an input that the OS expects and uses, but that the BIOS/firmware level stuff does not, isn't supplied.

 

Laptop keyboards are notorious for failing, particularly as they age, and even more particularly if you've got anyone who has a very heavy touch that hammers away at the keys.  And by "hammers" I don't mean abuses, I simply mean has a very heavy typing touch.
