    I have a question about my computer I have a problem with my keyboard going in and out. When I first boot up the system keyboard lights up and is detected, the next time I restart or shut down the computer and power it on again. The keyboard doesn't light up and is not detected, however turning it off and on or resetting it will make the keyboard be recognized again? please help?

    Its probably the connector, may be its not plugged in correctly. Check the connections again. How old is the keyboard?

    Hmm...a new keyboard! :rolleyes:

    Just for a trial...connect another keyboard and see if the problem continues.

    When the keyboard isn't detected is any error message displayed like...'Keyboard Error' or 'Keyboard Not Found' :confused: Any?
