I am currently working on a PC belonging to a friend and am experiencing the following problem. The PC will start up ok but as it is going through the Post process it comes up with KEYBOARD ERROR - KEYBOARD MISSING OR NOT FOUND. I have tried two brand new keyboards that i know work on other machines (have tested them) and both keyboards lights lilluminate when plugged in to the PS/2 port. Im am not entirely sure what the problem is but i think that the port is not properly detecting the keyboard.. I cannot check in the BIOS of the machine as the keyboards are non respponsive.
The PC spec is as follows
Athlon 2200 XP
256 MB RAM
Motherboard is as MSI board but not sure of model number
PC is running windows Xp pro
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as to haw i can rectify this problem other then suggest that if it is the port that the gent buy a USB keyboard instead.
