Can't enter BIOS with USB keyboard -> PS/2 adapter

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So, I plugged a Ducky 9008 into the PS/2 port with its included adapter, they keyboard works fine in the OS but I can't seem to enter BIOS by hitting "del". In USB mode it works fine.

FWIW the mainboard is an early Asus P8H67 with the known Sandy Bridge chipset issue and I think the SATA2 ports are dead (my new optical drive is undetectable, haven't got the time to check it out).

Is this a known issue with adapters or is there something that I should look into?

Thanks. smile.gif

Is PS/2 enabled for the bios, in the BIOS?

Easy mistake to make, done it myself,

I tried to find PS/2 relevant settings in the BIOS, but didn't see any, but I'll try again.

Would PS/2 keyboards work in OS when not enabled in BIOS?

Ripster has mentioned issues with his sandy bridge motherboard and ps/2. So, not sure if anything can be done frown.gif.

This is a known problem. TBH just give up on PS/2 and go USB. Get yourself a blue cube like everyone with Asus 1155 boards and Model Ms

It's not just Asus motherboards.

The PS/2 Compatibility List is here. The USB list is simple. All modern motherboards work with all USB keyboards. That's why it's the UNIVERSAL Serial Bus.

The keyboard works fine in the OS, it just can't enter the BIOS in PS/2, not a big deal, nor does NKRO.

The big deal is, I might have to gut the PC and return the mobo

Yeah, I'd say dead SATA ports is bigger issue.

I know that one from experience.

Did your SATA2 went dead too? Or you just return it because of the recall?

I was lazy back then, and still am.
