Keyboard Freezes Up

By abcs ·
I have a client where two of the work stations are having problems with the keyboard freezing up, requiring them to reboot the machines. These machines are running WindowNT workstation Ver 4.0 with service pack 6a installed. The motherboard is an ASUS CUV4X-V with 128Meg of ram, 800Mhz processor. All other machines on the network have no problems. The network is Microsoft Small Business Server v4.5.

Any suggestions will be sincerely apprecated.

Have you tried flashing the BIOS? I had some problems with NT and this motherboard that were fixed after flashing the BIOS. Go the ASUS web site.

These are brand new motherboards, so BIOS should not be an issue, but who knows.

to avoid carelessness,
Did the client stick the keyboard in the freezer? If so, tell the client to let it thaw for a couple of hours.

ok, here is my real answer
If the keyboard keeps on freezing up, try scanning and defragmenting all disks inyour network, check the memory and your motherboard and replace what needs to be. (probably your motherboard).

I would try one of these keyboards on another computer, or try a working keyboard on either of these computers. I also would check the pins on the connector at the end of the cable. If this doesn't lead you in the correct direction, then it soundslike it could be software related.
