keyboard - flashing led's

  [DELETED] 00:11 09 Nov 2003

When I boot up my system (os me) my led's constantly flash and I am unable to use either the keyboard or the mouse. If I disconnect the keyboard the mouse works fine.
I've tried another keyboard on my system and both that and the mouse work fine.
Anyone help? Is there a way to reset this keyboard fault or is it case of having to buy a new keyboard?

debby - i think you have answered your own question.

i would have advised trying another keyboard to try to eliminate one possible source of your problem.

you have already done that, with good results.

replace the existing keyboard - standard Windows keyboards can be bought so cheaply these days, sometimes it's not worth the effort cleaning them. I've seen in my local PC shop a standard PC supplies shop a KB for 3.99 !
