ASUS P3V4X Keyboard Lock

By mramada ·
I started assembling 1 of 10 new ASUS P3V4X motherboards with a PIII/733 and 256M SRAM. System boots, executes post-BIOS, loads DOS from floppy, then halts, since the keyboard and mouse appear to be locked out. I have swapped keyboards and mice, and have noted the 3 green LEDs on the keyboard light up for a split second when unplugged/plugged in.
Without the keyboard I cannot change BIOS settings or finish formatting the hard disk and install Windows....as well as can't debug the problem. Thanks for any assistance! Mike.

to change the bios settings you don't have to load DOS, see in the manual what keyboard combination give you acces to the BIOS, do the changes and restart, if the keyboard does not work check if any motherboard settings have to be adjusted.

Have you tried any of the other m/b's?
It could just be faulty and in need of warranty replacement/repair.

Check the [power supply and make sure it is working properly
Yes you can navigate once in the BIOS setup by using the tab key,arrow keys,and the page up and down key.Hit delete or F2 to get in the control panel and use the above keys to select kyouchoices.

I would like to retract the answer that I gave.Not the answer to post for your question.
But still check your power supply to make sure it is working properly.

Two thoughts: are the keyboard and mouse plugged in the correct connectors, or reversed?

If the MB has a keyboard lock available, leave it unconnected. These are usually normally open, close-to-lock circuits.
