Windows 7 Logon Screen Keyboard Not Working

This problem sounds like you don't have all the drivers for the motherboard installed. 05-02-2011, 06:25 PM #3 Muskz Registered Member Join Date: Jun 2010 Posts: 22 OS: Either way, it didn't happen on next bootup. -I tried all my system restore points and that did not work, -I tried the "on-screen" keyboard just to get past the logon, Tried to connect a USB keyboard as well but it was useless but both keyboard worked in BIOS! Both of them have multiple entries regarding the USB ports and they both have a 'Legacy' setting, along with settings for the USB ports. Source

Your computer will reboot and load the OS. I even Uninstalled every last USB port from the System Properties and restarted, and still that didn't work. I found a setting called "toggle keys", once I un-checked that box the USB keyboard become more responsive. I also have a keyboard similar to yours, maybe I can check for it.

  5. there was a power outage and when i restarted my computer the keyboard wasn't responding at all.
  6. An update I tried one more time to reboot and this time I used F8 during the reboot and did a memory scan.
  7. I'd prefer to expend all other options before I perform rocket surgery.I hope you'll understand.
  8. Also for the broken installation: different Keyboards (wired or unwired) also don't work.
  9. Is the problem only at the login screen or is it global?
  10. Is there a way to manually reinstall the drivers via DOS, the other partition, or some other solution that might work?
