need some help with boot time scan
« on: March 16, 2007, 09:13:29 PM »
hello
          need some help with this, about once a month i like to do a boot time scan. now every time i schedule a boot time scan the screen remains blank and the blue screen doesn't load.  although i think it's doing the scan because if i hit esc it boots up as normal.the only thing different on PC from last scan is the keyboard which is logitech G15 gaming keyboard.
if any one can help would be appreciated. ???

I would try it with your old keyboard if that works, you may need to ensure your BIOS enables the use of USB devises at boot and not wait for windows to load. You will probably have to use your old keyboard to interrupt the boot (keep pecking the delete or F1 keys during boot) and get into the BIOS set-up, sorry I can' say where this option is, but I would look at the Peripherals section first.

Although having said that even without USB keyboard support you should still see the boot scan in progress but be unable to use the keyboard to select any option. Also your mention of using the escape key, might indicate the keyboard is supported at boot.

Does this keyboard is an USB keyboard?
Hmmm... but it shouldn't affect the display (blank...).

Which is why I made the comment that it shouldn't effect the display of the boot scans progress in my edit.

Did you try the old keyboard ?
What is your screen, TFT/CRT make, is it the same as before ?
Some TFT screens have an auto setup button, I have on mine (Philips 20.1" TFT) and that was able to adjust my scree for pre boot applications also.

CRT monitor, the only thing thats changed on my PC since last month is the keyboard and the software that came with it logitech g series keyboard profiler. it does the same with the old keyboard blank screen but the HD sounds as if it is being scanned and I've always been able to hit ESC to abort the boot scan.

Did you configure the "boot process" anyhow? Installed a custom boot logo, for example?
What operating system do you have?
