Have you tried another keyboard?

Try doing the following.

  • If the PC is running, power off and remove the power cord from the back of the machine. Wait a full two minutes before you power on again.
  • If the keyboard still doesn't work and you've eliminated the keyboard itself as the problem, unplug it from its port and plug it into the PS/2 mouse port.
  • Wait about 5 seconds and then unplug it and plug it back into the its normal port.
  • Power off again, wait 20 seconds and then power on again.

Thanks Xircal for your reply, I can exclude that it is the keyboard that is faulty its the PS2 port thats faulty strange thing is there seems to power getting to the keyboard at bootup but only if I insert the power cord.
I really need to access the bios because i have to repristate MBR.
Thanks again.

Eh..uhum... Cannot find the meaning of --> http://www.definr.com/repristate ?

MBR is an acronym for "Master Boot Record". You don't need to access the BIOS to fix that.

What are you trying to do exactly?
