I attempted to boot the machine with boot disks and when it gets to the screen 'R for repair, Enter for setup' of Windows 2000 Professional; the keyboard already refuses to respond. I figured it was a windows driver problem and deleted the WinNT directory and was going to attempt a re-install. That yielded the same results.
I then formatted the hard drive figuring I could do fresh install ... no dice. As a last resort, I tried a utility CD by Kemosabe that contains various utilities. Attempts to repair Windows failed using those also. As a last resort I figured I could DOD erase the drive to make sure everything was gone. This also failed. I believe it is a problem isolated to Windows because in the BIOS and all of these other programs I have used, the keyboard works fine.
Currently I am out of ideas to try and any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated!
