    What would cause the computer to show no keyboard or mouse?
    Even when I restarted the computer the same message returns. I have tried to switch the keyboard and the mouse and still have the same problem.

    How many serials do you have? If you can't get the mouse and keyboard to work in the PS/2 it might be bad and a simple solution could be to use a serial mouse and keyboard... if you can afford to give up serials.. also IBM I think makes serial Y-spliters... but I haven't used them so I don't know how they work. (I don't exactly know... maybe there is another solution?) I usually advise against serial mice and keyboards, but it looks as if you might not have too many options. If you don't use serials, you might want to try it.
