    Are you certain? Most all recent BIOS i've seen have something about Enabling USB Legacy support

    I had the same problem. Found the same setting sugested by LookinAround and that solved my problem. Mine is tiltled 'USB Keyboard Function' in the Integrated Peripherals section.

    Can you try another USB keyboard if only to see what would happen? If you have trouble with the second one as well, maybe there is something wrong with the BIOS' USB driver. Flashing the BIOS should repair it.

    I was going to say " does the keyboard work", his USB sockets may be faulty, does the BIOS have an option for disabling/enabling USB, i know some of the older ones did ?
