Gigabyte motherboard doesnt detect any keyboard

June 2, 2012 at 04:29:44
Specs: Windows 7, AMD FX-6100, 6x 3,3Ghz/ Patriot DDR3 4Gb 1600Mhz
Well i just bought a new motherboard (gigabyte GA-780T-D3L) for the new processor i also bought (AMD FX-6100) and RAM (Patriot DDR3 4 GB 1600 MHz ). I assembled the components and started up the system. The first time i started it, it didnt show the immage on the screen so i restarted it again, it didnt detect my logitech g11 keyboard so i assumed that it was beacause of the drivers and connected my old PS/2 keyboard, that one got detected. I then entered BIOS set the time and date and the priority of my CD/DVD drive and HDD. I reboted with the win 7 installation disc and then it loaded it quite fast (the part just after when you press any key to boot from cd) but after that it started loading it again but slowly and it froze at about 50%, so restarted again and i thought i did something wrong in the BIOS settings so i used the jumper pins to reset the bios to the factory settings. After the reset when i started the system the 3 lights on the keyboard just flashed and since then it doesnt recognize any keyboard. Already tryed 2 PS/2 keyboards and a PS/2 keyboard with the connector that allows you to connect a PS/2 keyboard to the usb, but nothing seems to work. So is it possible that the motherboard was already broken when i got it or is there a diffrent problem. I am also using an old Hard drive that i didnt format be4 i connected it to the new system, so it still has the old windows files on it (could this be causing my problems???).
I didnt try to update the BIOS because i do not have any experiance in doing that and i dont want to cause the motherboard to be unrefundable.

Please try to help me resolve this problem otherwise i will probably have to refund the motherboard.

TY for all your suggestions and help.

We need to know board revision number.
Your board is old for newer CPU to work correct u will need to update the BIOS. i don't know for sure if the BIOS update will fix the keyboard problem.
This is not a driver problem, driver only works in OS environment.

The board revision number is 3.1
I would try and update the bios but i heard that u must use a floppy to do it and i dont rly have any of them around + i dont have a floppy drive. Is there anyother way of updating the bios, like whit a Cd, usb or something like that?
I dont rly know why but the motherboard did recognize the PS/2 keyboard at first and i was able to use it but after the reset it didnt detect it anymore.

For new AMD FX series processors to work correct u need F1 BIOS but the latest BIOS version for your board is F3. U will need floopy drive if u don't want to flash in OS mode.

Do u have another old compatible AMD CPU?

Can u see BIOS version number from post screen?
Pull the board outside the case and Connect only CPU + heatsink, one stick of ram, & PSU. Disconnect other components and wires then start the system, if it doesn't work clear cmos and start the system. Let us know the results.

"i just bought a new motherboard (gigabyte GA-780T-D3L)"

Odd choice for a modern CPU. The 700 series chipset combo is "old". I'm guessing the board choice was based on price?

"The first time i started it, it didnt show the immage on the screen so i restarted it"

Not a good sign. Hopefully you are still in the benchtesting phase & haven't installed the board in the case yet. What is the make/model of your power supply?

How about returning the board & getting one based on a newer 800 or 900 series chipset? Do you need onboard graphics?

I probably will return it if i wont be able to get it running.
And yes the price was the main reason i choose to buy it, because i had limited funds at the time, but i guess ill just have to pay a bit more and get a newer version cuz this one doesnt seem to be good enough.

Which motherboard would you recommend for the AMD FX-6100 processor (for under 70€ if possible).
Ok here is the site i bought the motherboard from, which motherboard would you recommend i swap it for?

Well, are you benchtesting or did you slap everything into the case without testing it 1st? And what are you power supply specs?

Ok i already decided that i will probably have to buy a new motherboard, so i just want to know (so that i dont mess up again) if any of these will do the job and if they are good enough:

Asus M5A88-M, Radeon HD 4250, AM3+
http://www.mimovrste.com/artikel/23...
(currently in stock)

ASRock 870 EXTREME3 R2.0, AM3/AM3+
http://www.mimovrste.com/artikel/23...
(currently in stock, but i read it is causing problems)

ASRock 970 EXTREME3, AM3+
http://www.mimovrste.com/artikel/23...
(Waiting time: 1 week)

Gigabyte GA-880GMA-USB3, AM3+
http://www.mimovrste.com/artikel/23...
(Currently in stock)

Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 , AM3+
http://www.mimovrste.com/artikel/23...
(Currently in stock)

Note that this is the first time im building a computer so less complicated is better.
Integrated Graphics not needed but it would be nice to have it in case the old card fails.

I agree that Integrated Graphics would be nice to have, but most newer boards don't have them anymore as far as I know. I didn't actually check the boards you listed, though. You could also try buying a motherboard/cpu combo, where the cpu & heatsink are already installed. That makes the build a little less complicated, though it gives you less choices.

Whaooooo... You changed bios with this keyboard, but it doesn't work in windows. Click! Use a PS2 mouse keyboard (if it has these plugs) if it doesn't unplug everything except the HDD (and powersupply) then start it up.

If your keyboard works in bios, then it is a windows issues or driver issue. It may have loaded the incorrect m/kb driver. This is what happens ocassionally when everything is added from the start. I install (new systems) only the bare essentials in hardware, get the os running then begin plugging in the other parts.
