Hey guys, i built my current gaming PC a little over 2 years and it's always served me very well, but lately when i boot up (before getting into windows) the mobo tells me it cannot detect a keyboard and i am unable to access bios. However, once i get into windows, the keyboard works 100% fine. The keyboard is just a generic $15 microsoft PS/2 keyboard. Has anyone heard of a problem like this before? Could it be my motherboard is just getting old? Is something wrong with my RAM even though i tested for 24 hours with memtest when i built?
Thanks for the Help!

Yes, my CPU was oc-ed to 3.0Ghz when i built. I had it stable for 8 hours in prime95 and all that good stuff, but recently it tells me my overclock has failed, which i figure is just a product of my CPU degrading over time. However, i don't know how i could update my mobo's bios without a working keyboard....
You have descibed exacly the behavior of my system 2 days ago. I had dowloaded some stuff from eMule, and there must have been some garbage in there, because when I ran it, the sistem broke down, and I had to reset. Afterwards a lot of new things happend, like:
- Windows asked me for password (I had not assigned any), and then went to reset by its own.
- The third time it let me in without PW, and still the system refuses me sometimes.
- I lost my WIFI Internet connection, so now I use the Ethernet cable connection
- My wireless keyboard dosn’t work until I am inside Windos, so I cannot step in to BIOS.
- I am now typing on a PS2 keyboard directly wired, and the system startsup saying it’s not there and press F1 to continue (on what keyboard then ??).
I was informed by my PANDA virusdetector that I have 2 virus in the system it can not get rid of –Trj/Spy.YK & Trj/CI.A.
I suspect the BIOS must have been infected, so I’ll have to reinstall it.
