I have been getting constantly bombarded with BSOD with the error source listed as i8042prt and the discreption listed as "Could not set the keyboard indicator lights". I have searched MS and Google and have not found a satisfactory solution or work around. If anyone has a solution that I could try please let me know.

Thanks,

buy a usb keyboard...I know, not a satisfying answer, but the best solution.

You can try removing keyboard in device manager and rebooting, but both times I ran into this it was a failing ps2 keyboard port.

Like I noted, I have removed the port from device manager and renistalled drivers, all to no avail. Could be a bent pin on the keyboard too, so you could try a second normal keyboard, but in the end, if that fails, go USB keyboard

I should have said it in my first message but I failed to do so; mine is a wireless keyboard and mouse. It is the Microsoft brand from Walmart.

perhaps we are not talking about the same error

First is that a ps2 or usb connection?

Second,

start > run
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Right click APPLICATION, click CLEAR log, do not save
Right click System, click CLEAR log, do not save

Reboot. Next time this occurs, note the time. Go back to the above and look for erros that happened at this time. Report errors

It is a wireless connection the infra-red device has a PS/2 connection for the keyboard and the mouse connection is USB.
Thanks,
