First, why did you add the new keyboard and what type was it, PS2 or USB? More information is needed before making any suggestions!

I agree, we need a little more information, have you tried it without the new keyboard and just using your old on again?

and as Unforgiven asked, is it a PS2 or USB keyboard?

the old keyboard the keys were messed up on it so i got given a free cheap 10 dollar usb keyboard and when i pluged it in about 1min or less the computer truned off so like said i figered prob needed to trun off so it could detect the new keyboard but i truned it on and it kept wanted me to restore it by putting in the xp restore disk so i tryed to restore it thinking that everything would be ok then it would not restore to want stuck on 0 % on the ghost screen so i figered maybe its the keyboard so i unpluged the keyboard and then tryed to just boot it up with out the disk in the rom and still didnt work so of couse i then tryed the restore disk again with out the keyboard even pluged in and still did not work i pluged in the keyboard when the computer was no but i dont think it would matter but then again it may if you need more info just ask
