    Now I've worked in tech support for a very long time, and this is by far the most irritating problem I've run into. I've done everything in my realm of knowledge to fix this, and now I need some help...

    I'm running WindowsXP Home on a dual core Athlon 3800, with an MSI K8 Neo Platinum motherboard. I don't know if any of these devices have anything to do with it. But, whenever I restart my computer my usb keyboard will NOT detect. I have a logitech 710 wireless mouse and keyboard set, I had this same problem with a Saitek gaming keyboard, I thought it was the keyboard so I just ended up throwing it out, but now its doing the same thing with this keyboard. Whenever I plug the wireless usb device into any usb port on my computer it makes a horrible four dull beeping noises, rather than the normal usb detection noise. They mouse works FINE they keyboard even has some semblence of funcitonality, the media keys work, the volume up down mute keys WORK they are detected, but any of the actual keypad buttons will not work.

    I have checked the HID services, they are running, I have checked the bios, everything is set as it should be in order to work with a USB keyboard. The only way I can get my keyboard to work is to leave it plugged in during the boot process and unplug it before it gets to loading the OS then plug it back in once the operating system is fully loaded, this is the ONLY way I can get it to read the keyboard. I don't want to do this everytime I want to restart my computer, Please help!! I will babysit this thread until I can get an answer, so if I left out a tidbit of info just ask for it and I will respond promptly. Thanks to all who help.

    Don't feel too bad. I've seen a lot of logitech problems posted in different forums recently.
