    Ok, some of you may remember my thread about a week ago about building my new computer, well all the parts came a couple of days ago and I got it built and working now. I went into the BIOS with my USB Keyboard and did some tweaking before starting to install Windows.

    I put the Windows CD in the drive and I get the Screen that says "Windows Setup" and on the footer of the screen it is loading all the necessary programs, utils, files, etc...Well after all the files are loaded the footer says "Setup is starting Windows" and right there my USB keyboard doesn't work...it just shuts off. I tried using a USB/PS2 converter which didn't work, I have tried every USB slot which also didn't work. I have looked in the BIOS for anything that might be causing a conflict but I don't see one.

    Here are my specs:

    CPU - AMD Athlon 64 3500+
    Video Card - SAPPHIRE 100107 Radeon X800 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI-Express x16
    OS - Microsoft Windows XP Professional With SP2
    Case - Lian-Li PC-6070 Aluminum Case
    Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar SE WD2500JD 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA150
    RAM - CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel
    Motherboard - MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD
    PSU - ENERMAX EG425P-VE SFMA 2.0 420W
    LINKSYS WMP11 PCI Wireless Adapter
    HEISEI PCI to 1394a Card Model HF-1394LB

    Please help!!!

    depending on your config, windows setup may not like the USB chipset. For this reason, my tech benches always have old-school ps2 keybords (genuine ps2... not adaptors). Use a "genuine" ps2 keyboard to complete setup and install your chipset/usb drivers. You should then be able to use your usb keyboard.

    you can get good USB keyboards (wired) for around $20.
