    Is Microsoft THIS stupid?

    Have you ever had a problem on with your computer that when you boot it up it doesn't recognize the keyboard? Yet it says something like.........


    ERROR KEYBOARD NOT DETECTED PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE.



    Now I am not a genius but if the keyboard is not being detected how can you press F1?
    There are some real morons in this world please do not become one of them, do not become a victim of moronitis. PROGRAMMING IS THE FUTURE...THE FUTURE IS NOW!!!!!!!!!

    My computer would do that during the POST, so there for I couldn't blame ms for this. I really want to blame them but I can't do it for this. It is the bios writer. It is funny though.

    But it implies there's someone more dumb than Microsoft.

    My has exactly the same message and no its not dumb, as it gives you a chance to go down, plug in your keyboard, press f1 and it will then contiune booting up the computer.
    Although Microsoft is that dumb, one of the error messages from the windows xp setup read "Windows XP disk not found, please insert Windows XP cd-rom into drive A:"
    If you own a piece of land and there is an volcano on it and it ruins a
    nearby town, do you have to pay for the property damage?

    don't use XP so I don't know about that.

    about the F1 problem, I don't think MS is responsible for that.

    it'll do the same for all O.S.

    but I think those guys who are developing the BIOS are trying to conserve size. heh...
    think only with code.
    write only with source.

    A copy of Windows 95 was delivered to my workshop shortly after its release. The first error message I saw whilst completing the install was...
    "The following error occured 'The installation completed successfully' ". The assembled group of engineers nearly wet themselves.

    Well the f1 key problem is not because of Microsoft... It is because of the motherbord BIOS... The manufacturer of your motherboard is to blame for this...
