Last week, my keyboard stopped working on me... well at least after Windows (XP) boot up.
The night before, I had no problems with it, and when I tried to login the next morning, my keyboard wouldn't type to log into my account on the computer.
I checked 3 keyboards that I have, and all of them did the same thing. I tried the same keyboards on my old 333mhz computer (the one I'm on now sadly), and they all worked fine.
I even tried switching the PS/2 port - and one side it said the keyboard wasn't plugged in, and on the other side it gave me no errors.
I tried again on my computer, and I could get into the bios setup fine (via the DEL key), but when I booted it up, it didn't want to type. :/
So I went online to try and fine a PS/2 to USB adaptor to try and get it to work that way, so I waited 4 days, and tried it via USB. It gives me the keyboard error, and asks me if I want to continue (how can I, if the "keyboard is not plugged in". The USB keyboard option is enabled in the bios. I even disabled it, and reenabled it to see if that would do anything... nothing...
So I'm stuck with a computer that wont let me login.
Is there a way to fix this, without reformating the partition (I have email saved, and various files saved on the C partition that haven't been saved to another partition yet.
I don't have an restore points on the partition either. I disabled them after my last format (what I always do). Nor do I have any repair disks either.
I've about had it with this old piece of crap 6 1/2 year old computer.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
