Heres the question:
Unplug the keyboard from your computer while it is turned off. Then power up your system. During the POST boot up diagnostic tests, one of the devices tested is the keyboard. What message appears to alert the user to the keyboard problem? If you plug the keyboard back in, will the system recover without rebooting? If necessary, plug your keyboard back in and reboot.

This is a really easy question. I cannot solve it right now because I do not have a computer, I have a laptop. I just need to know what the answer is to the first question. I already know the other answer.

Thanks,

I don't know the exact error message off the top of my head... but you will get a message saying something along these lines:

Keyboard Failure...... Pres F1 to contine

Also I know for most computers you need to restart the computer (unless USB) for the computer to recognize it.

I have my mouse plugged in USB and it will not recognize it unless you restart the laptop.

Another question How do you determine what Bus architecture is being used? I'm taking a Help Desk class and it says use my OS Utilites to find the answers. I'm not finding the answers for some of them.

Well I wouldn't have a problem with the keyboard if I actually had a desktop. As for the bus architect I ended up looking online for my laptop to see what I had. It ended up being a PCI which was staring me right in the face. I've already looked in the device manager but I just had no clue where to look for it in there.
