    Booting in Bios or safe mode with USB keyboard

    I have a USB keyboard and mouse on my PC. Problem i have is booting in the BIOS or Safe Mode. On boot up the computer does not recognise the Keyboard so i cant get into Bios or Safe Mode. IS this normal? Is there any setting in the bios than can alter this?

    If the BIOS s quite old then you may need to use a PS/2 keyboard just for the pre-GUI portions of boot-up

    Enable legacy usb support option in the bios with a ps/2 keyboard, should work after that.
