my situation is this..my ps2 keyboard doesn't get detected from time to time. what i do when this happens is to turn off my pc, then unpug the keyboard, then plug it again. most of the time, it works, my keyboard gets detected again, but for the last couple of days, it was getting harder to make my cpu detect it. i decided to borrow a usb keyboard. on the first boot, my cpu detected it, then upon loading windows, my keyboard doesn't work anymore. what should i do???? by the way, im using winows xp.

Your description is a bit confusing. It sounds like there is a bad connection at the PS2 port. I've had a keyboard do that to me before (work and not work, gradually getting worse). Are you saying that if the USB keyboard is attached and the PS/2 is not attached, then the USB keyboard is detected when you start but will not work in Windows?

WHen you say your CPU detected it, Were you able to enter Bios with it or possibly try the F8 key during boot up to see if you can get into Safe mode.

did you try entering Safe Mode? Or possibly a different USB Port?

Also it may help if you would list your PC Specs. System amke and model or if Custom built Mother Board Make and Model, Processor, Ram, Video, etc... you have told us your OS already. These might help us help you figure it out.
