how to enable USB keyboard by using a software that i can download from internet free. i have used my friend's keyboard (not USB keyboard) to get into bios setup to enable usb keyboard option from peripheral but there was no option for that, so i want a software that i can install on operating system (windows xp) to enable that option or to directly enable my USB keyboard for booting,bios etc.

There is no software that your can install to get your usb keyboard to work in your BIOS. You need to go into the BIOS and enable legacy USB. Depending on your computer and the age of it, you just may not be able to use a USB keyboard in low level.

There are USB to PS2 converters that you will be able to use, but that's just another part to buy.

Let me know how it goes.

The USB to PS2 adapters are very cheap (if that's what #1 had in mind).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

PS/2 keyboards are more dependable for the above reason. If you have a PS/2 port then use it. I am running a fairly modern system with Windows 7 and I am still using a 7 or 8 year old Microsoft internet keyboard. Drivers are still available.

Wireless keyboards are more trouble than they are worth, IMO.

Please choose your Windows System and raise a new post as no two problems are alike (this thread is about USB keyboards and is three weeks old).

That way you will get to the top of the pile and also get more focussed help.
