    > boot up computer
    > goes to asrock screen with an unresponsive keyboard

    > try again with different keyboard, an older one
    > goes to normal boot menu, keyboard works

    first time this happened I thought it was just random but it's been 100% reliable for like 15 attempts. what?

    Hi zzfd,

    Are both keyboards involved USB?

    Have you tried both keyboards in varying USB ports?

    Have you tried the problem keyboard on another PC?

    the one it breaks with is USB, the other is a round thing with dots.

    it's not a huge problem but I want an explanation for something this weird.

    Well the next steps would be to test the other two questions I asked in post #2.

    In addition to that, you should try another USB keyboard.
