    Keyboard Not Working In Safe Mode?


    Currently on Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Build 17763. I noticed (not exactly sure how long it's been like this) but when I am in "safe mode", my keyboard is on, connected fine, I can type just fine in, say notepad and windows powershell for example. However, at a "windows run box" I cannot type anything, keyboard doesn't seem to work. My mouse works fine throughout.

    I have tried deleting the device drivers thru device manager and reconnecting to "plug and play" again and no help. I have tried an "in-place windows 10 upgrade" and no help.

    Everything works just fine in non-safe mode.

    Thanks in advance (I have attached my registry device settings for reference as well)

    Scott

    :)

    Keyboard not working in Safe Mode

    As posted above "As that is a higher end keyboard that runs with software installed, suggest trying a standard keyboard." when in safe mode the system defaults to basic drivers have you
    tried to use a standard keyboard?

    Mouse and keyboard won't work in safe mode

    Hi,

    Safe mode starts your Windows using minimal set of drivers to help troubleshoot issues on your computer. Rebooting your computer should change it back to normal boot. However, if you entered safe mode through msconfig, then you will need a keyboard to exit
    safe mode. If your keyboard is not working, then we suggest using an external keyboard and mouse to enable exiting the safe mode.

    Get back to us with the update so we can provide further assistance.

    Safe mode problem

    Hi,

    To get better clarity on the issue, kindly answer the questions below:

    • By saying that you have a "Safe mode problem," did you mean to say that your computer is stuck in Safe mode or are you unable to boot it to Safe mode?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you attempted to resolve your concern?

    If this is caused by recent programs installed on your computer, then we suggest you to run
    System Restore to revert your system files to an earlier date. To run System Restore, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R on your keyboard.
    • On the run command box, type "RSTRUI.EXE" and hit enter.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Make sure that you choose the restore point date when your computer was working fine. Please be advised that programs and applications installed on your computer after the restore point will be removed.

    Let us know how it goes.
