Can't find anything like this in BIOS.

I'm on a DELL Inspiron Laptop that's about 2 years old.  Not sure it
would have a Legacy option (or need one).


Legacy support is also referred to as USB keyboard with the choice of enabled. It is for support for windows 2000 and before era systems where the keyboard "looks" like a ps2 device to the operating system.

Device conflicts are common with this legacy support enabled. Entering safe mode though for older MS systems and earlier alternative OS versions does not work however without legacy support.

I have an HP laptop where it is referred to as legacy support and had to be disabled in order for my laptop keyboard to function. If you don't need the BIOS feature, disable it.
