  1. keyboard issue, please help

    I have a major problem with my computer, my keyboard would not work, the num light came on but not the cap or the scroll and it simply would not work, so I tried several other keyboards on my computer and they all did the same thing, but worked fine on the other computer. I have a USB keyboard so I assumed the it was my ps2 port that was bad. I hooked up the USB keyboard and it worked fine for 1 day. Then it wouldnt work, except for the num light. I tried everything. For whatever reason it stated working again. Now, it is doing the same thing again, only the num light comes on. Any ideas?

    Use canned air to clean out the PS/2 and USB ports... but it is likely the problme is in the motherboard, and will be expensive to repair. Consider upgrading the motherboard.
