Keyboard stops responding during winXP install

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

I keep running into the same problem of the p/s2 keyboard quits responding
after a couple seconds of no input, when trying to install WinXP. The
keyboard is the Microsoft ergonomic type that's humped in the middle. I
don't have another keyboard to try in its place. My MoBo is an Epox EP-8KTA2
with KT133 AGP via chip set. The keyboard works just fine within the BIOS
Any ideas how to prevent this from happening again?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

    may be bad circuitry behind the ps2 connector or a bad keyboard. You
    know enough about computesr to have a few keyboard lying around
    Fixing computer problems requires more than one of each type of
    you sohuld have another cheap ps2 keyboard, and a usb keyboard as well.

    As regards the problem, i've never encountered it. All my problems have
    been wuth usb keyb/mouse on old computers.
