for sometime my keyboard just will not work on bootup,(although it occasionaly does!), I have tried different keyboards (all bog standard ps2 affairs,nothing flash) ive tried reinstalling and rolling back drivers,ive tested cables, the only thing I think it could be is the port, strangely if I shake the keyboard (usually from frustration!) the mouse then freezes, Any suggestions? I don't know how much longer I can cope wih the on screen keyboard!!

i recently had the same problem and it turned out to be the motherboard. there was a short by the keyboard and mouse port... so a new motherboard was in order.. not saying this is what might be wrond with yours but its worth having a close look at the motherboard... mine happened coz the kids tripped over the cable and giving it a if ya have had a jolt then this could be the problem
