    You might need a PS/2 keyboard before you can change anything in the Bios. Also the motherboard would have to have a PS/2 connector of course.

    No I think there is a problem with my motherboard or in hardware bios, my pc does not detected 2-3 keyboards, but it is detected branded keyboards, like dell, microsoft, only.
    not tag, tvs, Zebronics and others. I have taken my pc to shop they tried possible things, and said "there a problem in components" or in motherboard, but I have to give it to chip level, I think they are trying to cheat. Can't understand why my keyboards not running.. tried ps2 keyboard also, thanks for your time, but hey my problem wasn't solved yet... Please reply. Thanks to all.

    Then I suggest you use the branded keyboard.

    As to why the other keyboards don't work are they wired or wireless types ?

    I had an issue with my husband's Dell Optiplex. (The only computer in the house that uses a USB keyboard; all the others have PS/2 ports). One keyboard I bought would not let me enter the BIOS. I swapped it out for another and that one worked. So, yes, some computers are particular about what keyboard they use.

    Well I will stick with the brand keyboard,
    But my pc is doing wrong with me
    Well miss,ploder thanks, but my pc supports every keyboard, I think hardware bios and keyboard frequency doesn't match. But branded keyboards matched with hardware frequency works with the hardware bios.
    Thanks for brands.
    Hey thanks to all here for trying to solve my problem.
