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.

At starting computer,tap the F8 key,select safe mode with networking,enter
as administrator,chk system events and/or download software for it.

get the same problem
