I'm sorry, that came out wrong.
My old computer is an HP. She had brought her computer over for me to attempt to fix. I tried using my HP keyboard on her Dell and it wouldn't work. No errors or anything, it just didn't register.
The HP keyboard is a PS/2 port I think is what they are called, and there are no ports on my new Dell for that, so I can't try my HP keyboard on the Dell. But because my HP didn't work on my sisters 1yr old Dell I was figuring that it probably wouldn't have worked in my new Dell.
In looking this error up on google, it seems a lot of dells get this problem
but nobody seems to know much more about it other then it possibly being the motherboard or the keyboard.
I asked my hubby to grab a USB keyboard from work, hopefully he will remember to get it and I can test out a new keyboard.
EDIT: Well, the good news is that my husband got a new keyboard and I am typing from the new computer ;) so it was just a keyboard thing.
