    My problem is not being able to enter the bios on a MSI K7N2G after rebuilding a spare pc with my old motherboard (which was working OK prior to the rebuild) the only difference in the set up is that there is no floppy drive fitted just a hard drive, CD and CDRW drives. The screen shows

    Main Processor AMD XP2400+
    Mem test 229376K +32M Shared memory
    Dram Clock for DDR 333
    Primery Master 1C35L09oAVV207-V230A66A
    Primary Slave None
    Secondary Master None
    Secondary Slave R/RW 8x4x32 V2.5
    Floppy Disk (Fail40)
    CMOS Checksum Error- Defaults loaded
    Press F1 To Continue, Del to Enter Set Up

    02.14.2003 Nvida-Nforce-6A61BM49C-00

    but neither work as the keyboard does not seem to be working i.e.No response from any key, no caps lock num lock lights showing. Key board works fine on other PC.

    Have removed the battery and cleared CMOS by altering the jumper setting but still back to square one. Tested battery voltage is OK
    Hard drive OK have also tried a floppy drive but still no joy with it fitted, even tried with no drives connected but still get same result. I have taken the MB out of the case in case something was grounded. Still get the same results.

    Hope some one can help as I don’t know what to try next thanks in advance

    If you are using a USB keyboard, you might try a PS/2 keyboard. Some older motherboards don't recognize a USB keyboard in BIOS.
