K55 RGB PRO XT - BIOS Mode?


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to put this keyboard into BIOS mode without having to unplug it?

 

I found that unplugging the keyboard, holding down the B and S keys while plugging it back in ill put it into BIOS mode.

 

Is there a way to do this without unplugging it?

 

WinLock + F1 does nothing.

Interestingly, it seems the keyboard adapted after I installed iCUE 4 and updated the K55 firmware. It has started automatically going into factory mode (I could tell from the RGB lighting) whenever I restarted my PC, or when I boot up from a full shutdown.

 

It's not foolproof, there have been a couple of times after a BSoD that both the keyboard, and my Scimitar, seem to glitch out and cannot be detected by Windows. I then have to switch them to different USB ports after a shutdown to get them to start working again, but overall, I have to say this is a huge improvement. Even if the K55 Pro XT is not in factory mode, it no longer causes my BIOS to freeze during POST.

 

So, I no longer have to hold down a bunch of buttons every time I do a restart, like I did with the old K55. This is very helpful when I refresh my OS and repeatedly have to do a bunch of restarts for driver installations!

Hi Sojourner1,

 

There is no way to enable BIOS mode without doing the B+S replug steps unfortunately. That is the only way to toggle BIOS mode on all our newest-generation keyboards.

How to quit the bios mod?

The Keyboard can not be detected by the ICUE in the bios mode.

I tried hold on to the B and S for three seconds,it doesn't work.

What keyboard do you have nicksun? It's not the same steps for every keyboard.
