Hello Folks, I was working on my mom's PC over the weekend as her current PS2 keyboard had failed. I replaced the keyboard with the USB Keyboard below:
I still get the keyboard error message on DOS type start-up screen. Also, since the PC does not recognize the Keyboard, I have to wait 30 for the system to auto-default to Windows XP home and the computer continues booting. Once in Windows the PC then recognized the Keyboard without any problems. The PC Is a Dell Desktop. The PC is fairly new. I would say 3 years or less.
My question is, should I go into the BIOS to configure the keyboard as USB so the system is not looking for a PS2 keyboard? Any general pointers are helpful. I am not at the PC right now and I just thought about the BIOS angle. I also understand the Windows recognizes devices a bit differently than the BIOS.
Last question on a different issue. I also bought an all-in-one HP Scanner, printer and copier unit. I bought a USB ver2 cable with the HP. My mum's PC must have a ver1 USB card installed. I tried installing the software that came with the HP and the software recognized that the USB card I have in the PC Is ver1 and told me that the HP would work but at slower speed. Is that correct?
