I recently picked up a new mother board (the M3A32-MVP deluxe Wifi edition) because i was having problems with my old one. I reinstalled windows, and started to get everything up and running. I installed all available windows updates, and from what I can tell, after the updates were installed, I restarted, and now I am getting an error during POST that says "No keyboard detected". It is a PS/2 keyboard, but I have tried antother keyboard and I am geting the same problem. I ahve also tried a USB keyboard. I have checked thenecessary settings in the BIOS, but changing those hasn't had an effect. I read somewhere that it is possibly due toa low CMOS battery. I tried removing the battery for a few minutes, and replacing it, and when i restarted, i was able to press delete to acess the BIOS (i wasn't able to before). Can anyone please help me, its pretty urgent that I get my computer working again, because I need it for school. Thanks in advance for any help.

Ok,
So a USB keyboard works fine. Its strange. When I remove the MOBO battery, and replace it after a couple minutes, the PS/2 keyboard works fine to reset the time and date on the MOBO, but as soon as i save and exit, and boot up windows, the keyboard is not good again. The keyboard I am trying to use is a wireless desktop set (receiver for both mouse and KB are built in together). the mouse plugds into USB, and the KB in PS/2. I dont want to ahve to go out and get a new keyboard, because this one should still be good, but if that is my only option, I guess I will have to.
