Recently his mouse stopped working, then his keyboard.
I can enter BIOS, but cannot reset it because of keyboard not working.
The computer is an older model but I'm unsure of the brand, the motherboard is Intel entry server S845WD1-E.
I have tried 3 other "working" ps2 and usb mice and keyboards and they don't work.
I have installed a new usb card but that did not work.
I've tried "working" memory and swapped sticks.
I have used a usb to ps2 converter with no luck.
After trying the above and several suggestion from various support sites, including Intel, I finally cleared CMOS, removing the battery and also reset jumpers.
I can still enter Setup but of course can't reset the BIOS due to keyboard.
I can't use the keyboard to change the boot sequence to CD-ROM first so can't use Live CD of Linux, to troubleshoot.
I can use his HD on my system just fine.
I suspect the motherboard is going out, but still have hope.
This couple is elderly and fixed income so I'm trying to milk it for all I can (I do this for a hobby not money).
I will try a "working" ps2 card.
I will run memck on memory with another computer.
Any thoughts? Thanks
