    It may be that your motherboard does not support USB operation until software drivers are loaded.

    Is the keyboard PS/2 socket not working on the computer or is your PS/2 keyboard not working? In the first case, you could try plugging the PS/2 keyboard in the PS/2 mouse socket on the motherboard. In the second case, a fairly inexpensive USB to PS/2 plug adapter may allow you to use the USB keyboard through the computer's PS/2 keyboard port. A note of caution, some adapters may not work with some keyboards and or motherboards.
