keyboard error or keyboard absent

  silliw 22:18 15 Nov 2006

Started my desktop up tonight and I had an error message saying keyboard error or keyboard not present. Have now tried 3 more keyboards and 1 usb keyboard but still no success. Tried to boot from my windows xp cd but that wont startup at boot either. So no keyboard, no usb connectivity? and no CD boot. Do I have a motherboard problem or is it something simple ( I hope)

Can you start in Safe Mode?

Hi Graham, No I cant get anything out of the keyboard so I cant hit del to go into setup or anything else. Thats why I suspect a motherboard issue rather than a keyboard issue.
