Keyboard does work

By jmcardone ·
I installed a PS2 KB with hot keys. Had to unload the Touch Manager software. Computer rebooted to Windows 2000 pro asking for the normal password. Tried to type it and keyboard would not respond (it was working prior to removing the Touch Manager software). Tried another generic PS2 KB, no good. Tried emergency boot, KB works to access emergency data. So I rebooted to windows, same problem. Tried to access computer by booting off of windows 200 CD, but system states "setup" cannot be run from dos. I am at my wits end and do not want to do a virgin install. Any ideas, please!

Can you Go in in Safe Mode? Hold down F8 as the machine boots.

Swap it with the mouse... Try it.

Also, did you update the bios prior to this? Installing a foreign or improper bios will cause this.

Tried the mouse to KB swap and no good. I did not make any BIOS change, just uninstalled the software. Could this change the BIOS? Any other ideas, please.

I tried F8 safe mode and it did not work. I also tried swapping KB to mouse port and it didn't work.

Does the computer even detect the KB when you boot? If not then try getting a KB with USB connection if you have USB ports. Im not sure if there still serial KB connection out there.

Hope this helps...;0)

if you get it working by using those other ports, check your bios setting again, the program might inadvertently change your settings there or you might have a bad ps2 connection.

Good luck...:0)
