Hi,

This is caused by the Virtual Keyboard Device driver. Do you have one of those multi-function keyboards? If so, go into Safe-Mode and re-install an updated keyboard driver from the manufacturer's support site.

i'm not using a multifunctional keyboard, but you could say that it is a older keyboard.i formatted the harddrive, after installing windows i got the first option to restart (before setup continues). When restarting, i can't continue with the setup because i get that error message. the funny thing is that a other pc when connected to the monitor and the same keyboard and mouse, gives me the same error. i'll try using a different keyboard. thanks

Hi,

Sounds like a defective keyboard and I am sure a new one will solve your problem.

I will close this thread and if the problem persists, let me know and I will re-open this thread.
