I have this problem with my Kinesis Advantage. It's a BIOS/UEFI problem; talk to your manufacturer.

Uh, yes it does answer the question. His keyboard troubles have nothing to do with Ubuntu or any other operating system. The problem is that his BIOS does not recognize the keyboard. The only thing you can do in such a situation is ask the motherboard manufacturer to fix the problem in a new driver. – Christopher Monsanto Aug 26 '12 at 18:38
fwiw the user asking the question e-mailed me after reading my response, and I helped him further privately. I take it he does not understand the point of these sites as I did not get any upvotes out of the deal, but whatever. – Christopher Monsanto Aug 26 '12 at 18:40
