    Intel Desktop Board D525MW - Legacy USB

    cotj73

      I just recieved my board yesterday from newegg. 

      I am using it with a Logitech Illumited Keyboard, and have not been able to get the keyboard to register while in the bios.

      http://www.logitech.com/en-us/keyboards/keyboard/devices/4740

      I am only able to get to the bios by switching the jumper to "Configuration" setting. Durring boot the options of "F2 - Bios, F10 - Boot Options" do absolutly nothing.

       

      According to the documentation lagacy usb is turned on by default, but I am not able to check to see.

      When the board boots to windows everything works fine.(i have an old version of server 2008r2 on the HD i am trying to wipe.

       

      I have updated the bios and also removed the battery to clear the settings.

       

      Is my keyboard not compatable with bios settings? (it works with other computers I have tried it with) Is there a way to turn on Legacy USB from outside the BIOS.

       

      Thank you for the help

          Hello,

          Is the keyboard working  (moving the BIOS jumper) on the BIOS screen?

          Do you know if there is any driver that needs to be install on the keyboard?

          Try a BIOS recovery:

          1)      Turn the system off

          2)      Remove all the peripherals (keyboard, mouse and cd, DVD drive)

          3)      Remove the BIOS jumper from the board

          4)      Load the MW0086P.BIO file in an empty flash drive hopefully no bigger than 2g and connect it to the back panel of your board

          5)      Turn the system on and wait for 10 minutes until you see the BIOS update screen.

          6)      Then boot to the BIOS and check the latest BIOS version was loaded correctly.

          You can get the latest BIOS version for the following link:

          http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20306&ProdId=3253&lang=eng&OSVersion=%0A&DownloadType=BIOS

           

           

          Try other USB keyboard to wipe out the old Windows server from the HD then for latest drivers for the board and keyboard . If the latest BIOS has been loaded and correctly installed on the board and the problem continues, we might be facing and incompatibility between the BIOS chip functions and the USB keyboard.
