I have had intermittent issues with my mouse and my keyboard. They occur at various boot ups, sometimes frequently and sometimes I can go long periods with out problems. For example, the last week I have been able to boot with out trouble but today when i booted I pressed the switch, and powered it up and almost immediately it (something inside my machine but i do not know what) began a quick clicking sound (something akin to the sound you would get if you ran a stick along the spokes of a bicycle wheel while it was spinning) and the boot process stopped before POST. What i mean is that i got no post beep, but my led light of the front stayed lit just as if it were really working on the process. Once the light went out i pressed restart, and got myself into the BIOS setup. I went to view the event log and the only thing it had logged in "pre boot error; keyboard controller not functioning" and then "pre boot error; keyboard not functioning" These two items were listed repeatedly.
This is not the first time i have seen that either. Every time i have gone into bios and viewed the event log, these things have been present, but they do not include the stupid times or days when logged so i do not know if they are old or new or what.
I have tried MULTIPLE different keyboards and mice and it will always eventually occur, but somehow i think the "controller" is not fixable that way.
Any guidance?

turbo24,

That sound likely indicates a HDD going bad. Download the diagnostic utility from the HDD manufacturer and run it.

Could it be a wire touching the CPU fan?
