    Hi,

    I have purchased a gyration ultra keyboard and mouse to work with my htpc. When I plug the receiver into the usb port and boot up the pc, it gets throiugh the bios routine but then hangs for a considerable period of time before booting up into windows. What could be causing this?

    I thought it may be a matter of looking in the bios to enable a usb (rather than ps2) input device but I cannot see any such setting...I am running the following:

    MSI K8N Neo4 mobo
    Athlon 64 300+

    Once it finally boots into windows ity is recognising the mouse but only selective keys are working on the keyboard (althogh this may be a battery problem as I read elshwhere that the gyration ships with cheap chinese batteries which may only work for a short while)

    Any thoughts?

    does removing the gyration completely allow you to boot up normally?

    when the keyboard works selectively is it always the same keys that fail or different ones at different times? I had a problem with my keyboard not working 100% but solved it just by repositioning the antenna, suppose it must have been picking up some interference or something.

    when I put in my regular ps2 keyboard & mouyse it boots up just fine, its only when I put in the gyration that I have the problem.

    it does seem to be the same keys not working...but I am not 100% sure of this yet.

    that seems quite strange. do you have another PC which you can try the gyration with?
