xp installation issue
Hey everyone, 3 years or so since ive posted, long overdue. Anywho heres the problem im running into. Im trying to reinstall xp on one of my custom builds, and I get to the part where you enter the product key and my keyboard won't work. It works fine up until that point. The keyboard has a usb connection and a ps/2 connection, ive tried both and neither work. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Look in the BIOS and make sure that you enable "legacy USB devices."

Try a different keyboard?

Ive looked all through the bios and can't even find an option for legacy usb devices.

If it is a number you are trying to enter initially without success-if you are using the number keypad (and I know this sounds dumb), make sure that the Num Lock key is hit so that the keypad is activated. I assume from your first post that you mean that the keyboard has otherwise worked okay in the reinstall process.

same thing happened to me in one of my desktop. I simply replace the keyboard with PS2 and everything works. Guess you just need to replace your keyboard or try it on other port.
