You don't say if the alternative keyboard worked.

If it didn't then it's a fault with the PS2 port - most likely irreparable.

No both keyboards don't work

There are a number of reasons that a keyboard may not work, and you haven't given any clear indications as to any possible events. What type of keyboard are you using, is it the same type as the substitute keyboard. Doe's it have drivers. Is the keyboard showing in control panel?.

Give a few more clues, then someone may have the answer.

Try Deleting the keyboard in Device Manager and then rebooting.

Windows should Find New Hardware and reinstall the keyboard driver.

Unplugging / plugging in the keyboard while PC is switch on, cause motherboard PS2 fuse to blow (not repairable)

Does the keyboard work during boot up try to get into BIOS?

If ok during boot but no good in windows then a driver problem.

Sorry for the lack of info.
My computer would not boot up so I decided to do a re-install I put in the xp disk but the keyboard won't respond.I can't get onto the bios because pressing the delete key has not effect and when it asks me to press any key for CD booting nothing happens.
