USB Keyboard (disabled during boot??)
For some reason my Microsoft Ergonomic Natural Keyboard 4000 doesn't work
while my computer boots. The only keyboard function that works is the bios
key (pressing delete to access the bios menu). Otherwise everything else
doesn't work. For example:
-When I get a BSOD and my computer restarts and gives me an option to load
into safe mode; I can't select anything. The keyboard won't allow me to do
anything. I have to restart my computer with a ps2 mouse plugged in.
-When I boot and the screen says press any key to continue, none of the keys
do anything.

Oddly enough, once Vista fully loads all of my keyboard functionality
returns to normal. I have all the latest drivers for my mobo, graphics card,
vista, keyboard, display, mouse, and sound card.

2.66Ghz e6750- Processor
ABIT IP35 Pro LGA 775 P35- Motherboard
MSI HD GeForce 8600GTS 256MB- Graphics Card
Patriot eXtreme Performance (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800- RAM
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB- Hard Drive
2 Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 160GB- RAID 0 Hard Drives
Windows Vista Home Premium
