When my machine boots up, BIOS halts with a keyboard error "Keyboard locked out-press F1 to continue". This started happening the first time the computer rebooted following a motherboard driver update (DFI lanparty UT 250gb board with nForce 3 chipset and I have a Z-board keyboard). I know I can tell BIOS not to halt on keyboard errors, but I'm looking for a better fix than that. I also cannot roll back my motherboard drivers because then I can't play videos (the driver update fixed that problem). Anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it?
