Keyboard nonfunctional on Haiku Alpha install - Dell Studio 17 laptop

Hi all,
I installed Haiku Alpha version on my Dell Studio 17 laptop, but the keyboard is completely non-functional. I downloaded the latest nightly build yesterday and installed it, but still have the same problem. Does anyone have any ideas on a fix?

Hi Jeff,
maybe it’s some BIOS setting. Try to disable “Plug&Play OS” if there’s such an option.


Please use Haiku Trac at to report such problems.

What do you mean “non-functional”? I use Dell Studio 17 [1747] with custom Haiku builds and have observed no problems with keyboard.
