Are you sure it is connected to the correct port?

Is it PS2 or USB?

Try swapping with the mouse.

Cheers.

If it's not the keyboard, then it has to be the motherboard. A way round it is to get a USB keyboard.

Check inside the keyboard plug and see if there are any bent pins (unlikely, since you've tried two, I know!

I know this helped mines but done know if it will work with PS/2 keyboards, but worth a shot.

Unplugg all USB appliances and reboot computer, if that dont work take the keyboard able out aswell and reboot, i dont know if a PS/2 keyboard is only detected at start-up but try that aswell. If this works then reconnect all USB cables and reboot.

I was told that is because a 102 keyboard is in stalled instead of 103
How do I change this?

Best to start a new thread for a new problem.

Set the keyboard language to UK and not US. Look in Control Panel.
