    Any ideas why my Logitech internet keyboard (USB) wonīt work properly in the BIOS. Everything else works fine, but the "F" keys wonīt work at all! :?: :?: :( :( :(

    Sounds like a faulty keyboard if only one key won't work properly. I'll move this into the Incompatibilities and Issues forum as it has nothing to do with Windows.

    Some of the new keyboards have F-Lock keys on them, to give those keys double the options, check and see if you're has this and see if it works with it off/on.

    did you try using regular ps2 keyboard??
    if that works,
    than try using different USB port.
    If nothing changes, it might be the the quirk in BIOS. I'm assuming that the F keys work once you boot to OS.
    I know i saw a USB keyboard option in BIOS so you might want to check that if its turned on.

    i would look into bios settings for that USB keyboard option. If thats not it, I think that the BIOS itself wont support the F keys.
    Maybe there is a BIOS update that will fix it??? I dunno.
    But I would scratch this off to "Thats the price you pay for grateness"

    Heh :D , I just updated my BIOS yesterday. The problem ocurred while updating the BIOS. When the updating was ready, there was this message "press F1 to reboot the computer" and of course the specific key didnīt work. Well, I rebooted my computer from the power button and I think the BIOS was updated succesfully. :rolleyes2 :rolleyes2 :cheers:

    Atleast you got it to work... But when I mentioned the F-Lock.. I was talking about your F1, F2, F3 keys... New keyboards are coming out that have multiple key stroke information based on the F-Lock key... acts like the NumLock, CapsLock, etc. Especailly, on the new internet keyboards. Anywho, glad you got it fixed.
