I have a 7 year-old pc and I finally got a new video card. So I plugged it in there like normal, and, when trying to install my windows xp sp3, I cannot get past BIOS.

My keyboard did not work, so I tried another one, which didnt work either. Then I tested both of them on another pc and they worked perfectly. And when I press something on them a strange noise comes out of the system, I think from the hard drive.

By the way, my specs are:
Msi 945PL Neo3 motherboard
some old Pentium dual core
Nvidia Geforce gt210 1gb dd3 64bits
2 Gb Ram

So what could be the problem? I forgot to mention I plugged the keyboard on all usb slots and ps/2 and everytime this strange noise came out when I tried pressing something.

You could have a faulty motherboard.

So should I get a new pc or can I do something to fix it?

Unless you will replace your motherboard, I would say new PC.
