Windows XP and all I can count on is for the system to crash the moment I press any keys on the keyboard. The mouse works fine. I purchased and installed a new keyboard, but nothing changed.

Due to the keyboard locking things up, I haven't able to get into anything, i.e., defrag or scan disk. However, I do have Windows Registry Repair Pro which I can start up with the cursor. It doesn't come up with anything that changes my keyboard problems. :tazz:

Are both the keyboards connected via the PS2 slot? If so it might be worthwhile trying a USB keyboard. It maybe that the keyboard PS2 slot is what is causing the machine to lock up.

Thank you for that suggestion. I'll be trying it as soon as I get back home.

you could also try removing the keyboard

right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose HARDWARE tab, choose DEVICE MANAGER, right click KEYBOARD, select UNINSTAL, reboot, this will reload the default keyboard driver.

Also, go to add remove control panel applet and remove any keyboard utilities

I tried another keyboard, this time, with USB. I also uninstalled the existing keyboard driver via control panel/system/device manager. Neither option has changed anything as far as the system crashing. One thing I want to mention though is that when looking at the device drivers, there is a black exclamation point encircled in yellow next to the keyboard driver. Even after uninstalling and reinstalling a new driver and new keyboard, the message remains the same, as follows:

Device Status: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. Error: 39.

I greatly appreciate the responses in trying to straighten out this dilemma :tazz: !

Although I can't type from the desktop I've been seeking help for, I was able to paste the following hijack this log. And, in the previous send, I referred to an error 39. Actually, it is called Code 39.
