i just bought a new case, and when i transferred everything over i got a message. the first message was CMOS checksum error.. i tried to hit f1 to continue but my keyboard wasn't detected. after unplugging everything and replugging, i didn't recieve the message and i was able to get to the windows XP login screen...but my keyboard was still not being detected. after unplugging again i started teh system up again. this time i got the "CPU unworkable or changed.

You can try to reset CMOS according to the instructions in your manual. That might get you keyboard back. That's obviously the first thing you need. If it doesn't work try a different keyboard.

Did you reformat your hard drive before installing it in the new system? If not you will have more problems.

When you installed it into a new case, did you also move the power supply over? It could be, if you changed power supplies, that the new one is not provideing a stable enough voltage for your mobo. Also check the capacitors on the board, if any are bulging on top, or leaking, plan on RMAing the mobo.

Failure to detect a PS2 keyboard is normally a sign of a faulty ground or faulty voltage to the PS2 port.
