I installed a new hard drive, afterwards my ps2 mouse and keyboard wont work. I'm using a usb keyboard and mouse. On startup I get this message "keyboard/interface error' press f1 to continue. When I plug in my ps2 keyboard I get an error saying no keyboard plugged in.

Win XP
asus p4p800 motherboard.

Also with this new usb keyboard, everytime I start the computer and go into windows it wants me to install some hid crap any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm easily confused... A new HD wiped out your ps2 ports? I suppose that there might be an IRQ issue, but I've never seen a HD even get close to trying to use the IRQs of the PS2 ports.

So then you went out and got a USB mouse and kbd? They usually require a USB driver to work.

Me, I'd work out what's the issue with the PS2 mouse and kbd, and give the USB ones to someone I didn't like.
