I went out and bought a keyboard with a PS/2 plug. The lights on this keyboard do light up. Now, the computer comes to the screen where it asks me to choose between Safe Mode and starting Windows normally, but it won't let me choose, or even press Enter. If I wait until it defaults to "Start Windows normally," it attempts to boot Windows but I get a blue screen saying that the BIOS is not fully ACPI compliant.
It gives me this STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x00000011, 0x00000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I put in the Windows XP Professional recovery disk and rebooted, and now it gives me the option "Press any key to boot from CD" but again, the keyboard does not seem to work.
The motherboard is an ASUS P5N-E SLI. I'm going to call the company that built the computer tomorrow and talk to their tech support. But I hate waiting, so I was hoping some of the knowledgable people here might be able to at least tell me what is wrong with my computer.
If you need any other information in order to help me, just ask. I'm more computer literate than the average person, but not a pro or anything.
Thanks, I hope you can help me.
