Hello all, I'm hoping someone can give me some advice for next steps to get my keyboard working. I've read a few posts here and everywhere on the web but so far I've had no success. Here's the symptoms: -keyboard works in bios, windows recovery/setup, at the boot menu prompt etc.. but upon loading windows the keyboard is completely unresponsive at the logon screen I've tried: -a different keyboard -unplugging everything but monitor and keyboard -checking BIOS settings (nothing that refers to mouse) -tried turning off USB controller, there is a setting for the ps/2 port, it just says auto and then upon selecting it shows the irq setting which is not changable -booting in safe mode (still cant logon when prompted) -remote desktop not running so I can't logon that way -full windows repair -FIXMBR - repaired master boot record -ran CHKDSK /r from recovery console - it reported it found and fixed some errors on the disk Other details: ps/2 keyboard, usb mouse, xp home, was sp3 but now after repair its sp1 I'm still left with an unresponsive keyboard at logon. It's so frustrating! The only thing I can think to try left is a USB keyboard, but I fear that won't fix it. I'm hoping there is a magic file i can copy from the xp cd into the system that has become corrupt. Any help very much appreciated.
