Just started the spare PC, on Win XP. Keyboard not working, and via 'control panel - settings - keyboard' the Windows keyboard driver appears to be missing. Is it possible to download another one? Any advice appreciated.
Do you need to enter a password on your account? Does the keyboard work then? If so then go to your user account and remove the password. If'no' then please ignore above. Try this, go to device manager again and scroll down to keyboards and expand to ps/2 keyboard. (I'm assuming you're not using a USB one). Right click the keyboard and select uninstall. Reboot and log in. 'Found new hardware' wizard should kick in and install the driver.
rdave13, went to device manager, but no 'keyboard' at all. My keyboard is USB, and in the USB controllers, it has USB device with exclamation mark on it, so I click, and it says, 'reinstall driver', which I do not have. Most perplexing!
