I have what I think is an enteresting problem,

I have an E-machine that no matter what I can not get the key board to work on. However, the mouse does work.

Using the std key board which uses the key board plug on the mother board , nothing works, I have un-installed and re-installed the key board drivers several times and tried several key boards.

I purchased a wireless USB key board and attempted to use it with no success. I installed a PCI/ usb card and tried connect the key board threw that and still no key board, but if I connect a USB mouse, it does work.

I then noticed that the soft keys on the key board, keys for sound, internet and so forth did work on the the USB key board just the alpha and numerical keys don't work. Hummmmm?

The only other thing I can think of is that some how the computer has lost the coding for reconizing the key codes. I pesume that this information would be in the bios.

I could use any help I can get.

thanks

First a few questions :

- what type of keyboard?
- doesn't it recognize the keyboard when booting up?

so far, the std e-machine key board, 3 gateways and a micro usb wireless. all of which work normaly on other computers. it does not reconize the key board on boot, std or in safe mode

Have you looked at your country settings under Control Panel. Furthermore check if the keyboard mentioned under keyboard in the control panel are the same.
