Here is a problem for the experts that I have not seen in these forums before: I went to use an old trusted PC and then....
On first boot up, I got as far as the password gateway/entry on this Dell XP op system from 2002.There was a continous beeping sound
2 seconds after bootup ( I did about 10 bootups). Then it said "keyboard failure" but I had not yet even typed anything(and could not). I
tried 2 different keyboards and then no keyboard plugged in and got the same result until after 7 tries when I saw a message below on a
black screen.This is an isolated PC with no internet access or linkage to other PCs and I had not used it for over one month.There were no
problem signs before and I wonder if something went wrong on the last shutdown. It is an old desktop PC from DELL (Dimension 2400) in
which an XP re-install was done in 2015. To sum it up, inability to use a keyboard really limits your choices for fixing....
