Thread: Keyboards?

  1. #1

    Default Keyboards?

    I use a Corsair STRAFE RGB Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit Multicolor LED keyboard. But I have issues with it if I want to enter the BIOS on boot up. As the computer doe's not see the keyboard untill it has loaded the drivers and or software and this is too late to get to open the BIOS, I think it's because it's programmable that causes my problem. I'm prepared to buy a new keybaord but I do want a backlit LED keyboard. What backlit keyboards do you have that has no problem opening the BIOS on bootup?

    Probably need to enable USB Legacy mode or something like that in BIOS. Check your manual.

    I have a keyboard that I love. The brand name is AZIO, it is inexpensive, has extra large key symbols that are backlit in selectable colors. I can't see the model number, because it is covered by a glued-on label, but a Google search should find it. It works fine at boot-up.

    Some motherboards have a "Direct to BIOS" button (Mine does). That's why I suggested you check your motherboard manual. But since you want to be a smartass, your on your own.

    As I recall, my keyboard runs directly from the Windows driver. If your present keyboard has a unique driver installed, the loading may be delaying the activation enough to get passed the BIOS access. Just a thought.
