    My ps/2 keyboard, every 3 or 4 days, simply stops working - no response at all in any application. I switched keyboards, but the problem persists. Reboopting works every time. The Device Manager shows it's working properly. As far as I can tell, no specific application is triggering the problem, although it usually occurs when I'm working in IE7. I have Windows XP.

    Any thoughts?

    The only thing i could think of would be a port problem. You might try using a ps/2 -> USB adapter(if they exist <.<) to bypass the ps/2 port.
