    Usually while surfing the web with my mouse, the keyboard goes dead. It does not work on or off the internet until I totally shut down and reboot. This did happen once while using my word processor. Restarting the computer doesn't help, only when completely shut down and then reboot will the keyboard work again. I have tried 2 different (new) keyboards, and the problem persists. All connections are solid.

    I am running Windows 95 on a CTX 266 computer. Hope someone can help.

    youngshd,
    Good move with second keyboard, my first thought.
    How about the driver. If you the 95 setup disk, Go to device manager and remove driver and reboot. Windows will detect new key board and you will be prompted to insert win 95 disk.
    Worth a try?
