Keyboard failure dell

I have a desktop PS/2 keyboard that functions fine when in Regular mode. But for some factor when booting in BIOS, by pressing either (F2) or (F8), a message for about a 2nd claims, "Keyboard Failure".  


Of course, the key-board attributes in BIOS via the up/down arrow and also Get in secrets. But after going in Safe mode, the key-board does not work-related, and also as shortly as once one essential is hit, the PS/2 computer mouse becomes disabled also.


I entered Set up and also under Combined Devices (Legacy Select Options), the complying with settings are as follows:

Serial Port : Auto

Parallel Port: Setting : PS/2

USB emulation : ON

USB controller : ON


I don"t know if anything in those settings are collection erroneously. I constantly have actually provided the same PS/2 keyboard and also computer mouse day-to-day. I did need to plug a USB mouse in just to have the ability to get out of BIOS as soon as I hit a vital, and lost manage of both PS/2 gadgets in Safe Setting.   


I then went into gadget manager while in Safe Mode. Under the Hardware tab, the key-board does not show up.(It states the PS/2 mouse is functioning correctly). I selected "Sexactly how Hidden Devices" and the keyboard appears. I clicked on "keyboard", and the key-board opens up underneath mirroring the Standard PS/2 key-board (But it shows up greyed out).


I appropriate clicked on the PS/2 keyboard, selected properties, and also under the General tab it says: "Location" : The gadget is plugged in to the keyboard port. It additionally says: Currently, this gadget is not connected to the computer (Code 45)"


I tried the troubleshooting button, yet I I do not favor following those instructions bereason it claims that I should attempt first un-installing the driver and also then re-booting to let Windows detect hardware and also install the motorists.
