With wired keyboard plugged in monitors go dark
Posted on 2013-11-24
I typically run with a wireless keyboard but there are occasions, resolving startup issues, or have to have a plugged in keyboard. I typically leave the wireless keyboard plugged in at the same time.
Whentroubleshooting a startup problem I noticed that my monitors would go dark after about 5 minutes. It was purely by accident that I discovered that if I remove the keyboard that was corded and plugged-in, the monitors will begin work normally.
Any suggestions on where to begin troubleshooting this problem would be greatly appreciated. My initial thought was that my power supply was starting to give up the ghost as I did not experience this symptom the last time I had to troubleshoot startup issues about 6 months ago.
My system is running Windows 7 ultimate and has a gigabyte motherboard has the foundation for system I built myself. I do have Intel raid on the box and 6 drives internally.
The OS drives are mirrored, the data drive is mirrored and I've also mirrored a 3 TB drive as just a place to put things.
I really appreciate your assistance,
