I am currently unable to start one of my desktop machines.
Although a working keyboard is connected, the error message "Keyboard Error. Press F1 to resume" is displayed on startup. Pressing F1 starts the XP Pro splash screen but startup does not complete- it simply returns to the error message. I have tried starting in safe mode but same story.
This error occurs even when starting with no keyboard connected.
Background info - old machine - AMD Athlon 600MhZ, 192MB. No recent changes to hardware build. Recently this same machine has been displaying the message "ATAPI Incompatable; Press F1 to Resume" on startup- in which case pressing F1 solved problem.
Do you think my hardware is failing? Any suggestions please???
