    I'm working on a friends HP pavillion. I'm installing a new harddrive. When I reboot the keyboard lights come on for a split second then go off and I have no function after that. I can't hold down f1 to get to the bios or anything. He said he used a usb keyboard to get in unfortunately I don't have one. Is there any other way around this? Is this a bad connection or could it be something else. The keyboard works fine on my computer. Any help would be great!!

    The keyboard in question works on your other system. Does that system's keyboard work on the system that has the non working keyboard. If so the problem is mostly likely with the port and a USB keyboard would be the easiest solution
