When I boot this Dell XPS 400 (XP Media Center) I get a BIOS keyboard failure. When the signon screen displays, not only do I have no keyboard, but I have no mouse.
Both mouse and keyboard work in other PCs, and of course the working mouse and keyboard from other PCs do not work in this one.
I have unplugged everything and held in the power button to clear out electrical problems
I have replaced the CMOS battery. All this did was keep me from even getting to the signon screen. After Keyboard failure, I now get floppy diskette seek failure, followed by Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility.
Of course I can do neither - I have no keyboard. I have tried both mouse and keyboard in every USB port.
I cannot seem to find anybody who has a PCI card for PS/2 peripherals..
