Keyboard was working just fine, now nothing.

Tried usin a diff keyboard, nothing.

No keyboard in the device manager.

Install a generic keyboard!!! ..........no. No keyboard, ANYWHERE in add new hardware list. Even looked through all of manufactuors list for "Show all devces."

I think maybe winxp dont support keyboards! :)

If there is no option to install Keyboard in the Add/Remove Hardware, then I suspect there is something corrupt in the OS itself. You could either boot up w/the WinXP CD and choose the option that says "Repair this installation of XP"


Second option is to press F8 when your computer boots up and instead of selecting Safe Mode, select the "Last Known Good Configuration Mode".

Or you can use XPs handy restore feature - provided you have one to revert to before the snafu occured.

You can also check MSKB and see if you find any hits. I just typed in 'keyboard problems' for the search phrase and got this:

Try Safe mode - if you can get the boot menu to come up then the keyboard and PS2 connector are ok. Is the Keyboard the round connector or USB? If USB, is USB enabled in the bios?
