  1. Hi there

    I have just built my first PC. I wanted to learn more about PC-so thought I would try and build my own would be good start.
    Its gone NOT too good at present, but I guess thats the learning curve.

    I seam to have a problem with the PS 2 Keyboard. It doesn't work and all I get is the 3 lights of Num Lock/Caps Lock/Scroll Lock are all LED lit up.
    I tried another Working PS2 keyboard and this did the same, but I could get a USB keyboard that worked in the USB socket. Any ideas on whats going wrong with the PS 2 keyboard and what should I do? - could this be a MOBO thats not working?
    Could it be my BIOS settings?
    The PC starts fine in XP

    Look forward for some help and advise, really would be grateful, best regards

    AMD 64 3200+ (+ CPU Heatsink and Fan)
    MSI KN8 Neo2 Platinum MOBO
    MSI 5500 256 AGP Graphics cards
    1 GB RAM - Crucial
    40GB HD
    Antec SmartPower 400W PSU
    Iomega ZIP
    Floppy Drive
    CD-ROM - Ordered a new ROM

    the point of a public forum is to help all people, not just you. next time, don't spam your own thread.

    Either erase your original question -or- even better, explain what you did to fix the issue so it may help others that run into the same problem.

    It`s kinda funny in a self referential way,though.
