PS/2 keyboard is not working (not even able to use the "Del" key or "F8" to enter BIOS or Safe Mode). PS/2 mouse works fine, USB keyboard and USB mouse also work fine. The PS/2 keyboard was working fine, and then the next time I booted up the PC it stopped working (I don't recall doing anything in particular that could have caused this).

Specs: Windows XP Home Ed. SP3, AMD Sempron 3200+ processor, 1.5 GB RAM, 150 GB HDD.

Do you have another PS/2 keyboard you could try on that computer?

OMG how I did not think of this... !

The current PS/2 keyboard doesn't work in my other PC, so I found another PS/2 keyboard lying around and it works in both computers I tried, so the keyboard is broken then and nothing is wrong with the PC!

Thanks for the response.
