    Default GA-P35 key board/usb issues

    I've got an issue with my mobo, ive tried my (working) usb port keyboard in it, but it does not work - it gets no power lights. I heard this was an issue possibly with USB being deactivated on first boot up so I grabbed a USB to PS2 adapter and tried - still no luck.....

    Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHZ
    Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
    CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4 - Retail
    6800 GT BFG


    Just snagged my mother's PS2 keyboard and tried it - it gets power lights (Caps lock key, scroll lock, number lock all work, as in they all light up when pressed) However, I can't type in y or anything like that when it asks "Boot from CD/DVD"

    Do you have USB keyboard, and USB 2.0 enabled in the BIOS? It is in the Integrated Peripherals page

    And all you need to do is hit any key to boot from cd, no y or specific key is needed

    The issue (was) that I would but up the pc, and then I would get sent to the logo page for a moment...then it would go to POST, and since its a new computer/hard drive, I have no OS installed yet, so after it posted it asked me if I wanted to boot from CD/DVD

    I turned it off for a while and just now turned it back on and the PS2 seems to be working now, it let me hit Y and now it says

    "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration"

    Any idea how long this takes? Been sitting at it for a minute or two now.

    P.S. : I don't have USB enabled because I couldn't get into the BIOS....the keyboard wouldn't work (The USB or PS2) but the PS2 seems to be working alright now. Hopefully after I get into the bios and enable USB keyboards itll work fine.

    Ohh that just takes a few minutes most of the time.

    Sorry, I was confused about you not having a system installed yet, so I thought you meant booting from the install disk

    Np np

    Yea, its been on this screen for atleast 10 minutes now. I have a feeling it may have locked up? :/

    Is there suppose to be a period flashing after it or something, to show that its still running?

    Right now this is exactly what it looks like:


    Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware conf iguration . . .



    No blinking period at the end or anything...not sure if i should try a restart or not?

    I would restart it, are you sure you have your disks set properly in the BIOS? If not go look them over again and be sure it is correct. That should only be there for maybe one minute then the install process will start

    Which disks would you be referring to? I'll reboot it and give it another try

    If any of you mods are up for it, we could communicate a bit quicker through aim or msn..

    I dont use messengers. I mean your Hard drives. There is settings in the BIOS for specific controllers on the Motherboard, meaning different ports Have different setting areas

    Hold UP a sec and I will post you a image of the BIOS showing which part controls what ports

    In the Top part in Integrated Peripherals is the Intel Settings, and the Lower/middle is the GA/J.Micron settings.

    Intel (Yellow-Orange Ports) - GA/J.Micron chip (Purple Ports)>>>


    And then in Advanced BIOS options at the top you will see BOOT Priority, make sure you disk is set as the first one.

    Also, what disk do you have? It may need a Preinstall format and set active by the manufacturer tools

    *EDIT*

    Sorry, ya you need to go in and choose some settings for your drives, several likely.

    Hotkey is "END" key
