Keyboard will not work at login screen

Hi all. Frustrating problem here.

New installation. Keyboard worked fine during installation. Works fine in
bios. But when the time comes to type in the password on a bootup, the
keyboard does not respond at all. Tried 2 different keyboards.

ps/2 keyboard, xp pro SP2.

Anybody?

Thanks.

    get the same problem
