Hello, My keyboard does not work in safe mode but does in normal mode.
When I look at the Keyboard settings in the control panel I can see my keyboard just fine in normal mode, but when I look at the same area in Safe Mode there is no text anywhere and I can't click on anything.
It is NOT a usb keyboard. It's a dell that came with the computer.
I CAN get into safe mode by pressing F8 then i can even move up to select safe mode with the arrow keys, the problem comes when I try and type anything in any kind of document. The mouse works fine but the keyboard is unresponsive, the num lock light is on but and when I press the num lock key nothing happens.
I followed the link and it looked promising but did nothing. I followed the steps and tried it in both normal and safe modes. I noticed that the fix in the link was for windows 2000 computers...would that make a difference?
