If you unhook the wireless keyboard while the system is powered down. It should work. You may have to pull the CMOS battery and power to reset the Bios, then go in and set just time and date, along with default boot drive, then Save & Exit and let the system boot with just the wired USB keyboard and mouse.
This keyboard and mouse that you are using in place of the wireless unit, is it a brand new one, borrowed from someone, or one that you had put aside that came with the computer, before you got the wireless keyboard and mouse?
The only other way to check if a hardware issue is to get a copy of Linux Mint burned to a DVD and use that to boot with and test the wired USB keyboard and mouse. Hiren's BootCD will allow you to test for hardware issues.
It's clearly not a BIOS/UEFI or Hardware issue. It is a Windows 10 issue. It is a Windows 10 issue that is causing his computer to boot into the Windows Recovery Environment. If it was a hardware/UEFI/BIOS issue, then he wouldn't be able to boot into UEFI/BIOS and use the mouse/keyboard there.
That or the motherboard may not have compatible drivers that Microsoft's update servers tried as a default.
I would rather give them a book and then have them break it down and I enjoy that you both have jumped in on this. I have been down for my back causing me the past couple of days to not get any sleep. I was running on over 60 hours with no sleep by the time that I went to bed this morning, when my body finally crashed and told the back pain that it was not winning.
OK I deleted windows 10 and I am going back to windows 7 as my motherboard does not support windows 10.Can anyone tell me from these drives which one will give me the network adapter to connect to the Internet?
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68P-DS3 (rev. 1.0)
I think the link won't transfer but I am using windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.
Realtek LAN driver.
If your motherboard does not support Windows 10, then why does Gigabyte have Windows 10 Drivers on their website for your motherboard?
I have the older version P5B apparently windows 10 and my motherboard don't mesh I have constant problems from day one with it and thank you for your help. I have had nothing but issues with windows 10 from the start and never an issue with windows 7 so that's why I am going back. Also for those who are interested Google windows 10 and why is given away for free it will open your eyes. For those that are happy with it I don't fault you but I for one won't use it anymore.
As for drives, do not know what you are asking about that for having to do with the Network Adapter. Just go to Gigabyte's website, put in the model number or serial number and you will get the correct page for your motherboard. You then just need to place those drivers on a USB key to use if Windows 7 does not download and install.
That motherboard is capable of running Windows 10. You just need to click on the "Show me all". You are best to run the x64 version of Windows, since you can use up to 32GB and it shows that motherboard is capable of using 2nd Generation i7 CPU's.
I have three Intel Core 2 Duo machines in my Basement in storage that will run Windows 10. A HP, Lenovo and Dell. Different Motherboards, but Windows 10 had no issues installing the correct drivers.
