keyboard not working

  1. My keyboard is no longer working on my laptop. The keyboard works in Bios, but as soon as windows xp loads and I get to the password prompt the keyboard stops working.

    I tried a repair reinstall, but when windows xp loads to the text portion the keyboard still does not working.

    I've booted with a DOS disk and all worked fine, I've also connected a usb keyboard and mouse but this failed. I've checked the settings in the BIOS but nothing seems unusal. I can't seems to find a solution online either

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated since I am at the end of my ropes

    Thankyou in advanced

    System spec:
    IBM thinkpad T42
    512MB Ram
