    I am using a home built computer with dual boot Windows 98 and XP Pro. With 98 the computer recognizes the keyboard on boot.
    With XP the keyboard is not recognized on boot up. I go to system then hardware and uninstall the keyboard then tell the computer to search for new hardware. It finds the keyboard and it works. Microsoft PS/2 Intellitype Pro keyboard, I have tried two others with XP with the same result.
    I have manually installed the software, gone to Microsoft for keyboard updates and XP updates. No success. I also noted a couple of other people with similar keyboard problems with XP but nothing suggested helps. Any other ideas?
