Keyboard Freeze during Win2000 or XP sta

I have a Gigabyte 6BXE motherboard which has a PS2 keyboard. The keyboard functions normally using Win98. The Keyboard hangs when loading Win2000 or Win XP....a look at the device list in XP using the mouse shows there is no keyboard device listed ...can anyone please help !

The keyboard drivers need updating to use with the XP operating system,check the manufacturers web site for W2K drivers and install.
Use the add hardware wizard to manually install the keyboard

I have tried two standard keyboards from friends machines which load with no problems, both these did not work. It is my understanding that XP has to detect the hardware before you can elect to load drivers for it ...it does'nt seem to offer a keyboard ...even manually the keyboard is not in the extended list of options
