  winksey 15:00 19 Dec 2007

When booting my computer it says keyboard failure and my keboard no longer works I am runnig Win XP and I have a Dell Dimensions 5150 computer package with which the keyboard was supplied. Can anyone give me any info on how I might re-enable my keyboard or is it ka-poot.

Apart from making sure it is really plugged in, have you possibly swopped your mouse and keyboard sockets at the computer?

If you do have to move them around, do switch off first, neither will take kindly to "hot plugging!

If you have to replace it, Keyboards are pretty universal and surprisingly cheap, but do see if you like the touch before buying.
