|My keyboard IS disabled until Windows Boots,can't enter system setup, can't reinstall |
windows cause when it says press enter to install, the keyboard won't function.
E-521 Dell, 4Gb memory, AMD Dual core 3Ghz, both wireless and USB mouse and keyboards.
Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate, (2 totally seperate Harddrives)
I noticed the keyboard not working several months ago but have managed to work around
it until now. I was using "EASEUS Partition Master 4.0" last friday, partitioning a
seperate Harddrive and when the computer rebooted to windows it gave the error message,
Error message says, No MBR.
In the past I've just reinstalled a currrent Image and I'm done in about 30 min., this
time It doesn't want to work. I tried repair w/ Both Windows Disks, it won't save to HDD.
I tried to simply reinstall a fresh copy of Windows,XP Pro and Win 7 Ultimate, but can't
because i can't press Enter when it asks for Intallation. Same w/ Hirens boot disk,
Acronis boot disk and anything else I can find.
Could this be a corrupt BIOS? isn't the MBR also there? Or the command for the keyboard to work?
Any help would be appreciated.
