I have an old AMD processor PC, and 3 days bfore i formatted the HDD and (Tried to)reinstalled windows XP pro. I set the boot sequence in the Bios setting and started installing windows. After the first restart, i noticed I cannot enter the serial number coz my keyboard is not working. I restarted the computer and i saw the keyboard works in the bios settings. But when windows start loading the keyboard works. I tried chaging the keyboard and reseting the bios settings. Didnt work. This system was working on WIn xP with no trouble. How could this suddenly happen. Am using a USB mouse and a PS2 keyboard. Do u think its a hardware conflict. Does anyone knows how to fix it? Apreciate the help
Unplug the mouse and try to boot with the keyboard alone. If that gets you into windows use shortcuts for windows without mouse, then plug mouse in. Remember, you can add/remove usb devices while the computer is running but you can't add/remove ps2 connections while it's running
