Keyboard Doesn't Work

  1. The Keyboard doesn't work, but the mouse does,
    And i can't log in to windows at all because i need a password
    and I can't use the EBCD (If you know what that is) because it is
    Windows MCE which doesn't load like XP Pro although it is so it doesn't show a good load of it >.>

    Also the keyboard works in Knoppix and in EBCD
    but it doesn't work in Windows and i have tried 4 2 P/s2 and 2 USB keyboards

    the computer is HP Media Center PC M7640n
    AMD 64 Dual Core 5000+
    2 Gigs of RAM

    when in bios, try and look for something called usb legacy support, and enable it, or something similar, if you cant then im baffles, if all is to fail, try reseting the cmos by switching the jumpers on your motherboard or take out the battery cell

    regards
