    Why don't any other kbd's work? Are they old?
    It looks to me like you might have to buy a new kbd.

    Do the other keyboards work in other pc's?
    And what happens when you plug one of the other keyboards in to your pc.
    And what is "mc"?

    When I have had a keyboard stop working, I just plugged in a dfferent one.
    Always worked for me.

    Just curious, you said a pin broke off, that pin is not in the ps/2 port, right?

    So the machine with Xandros doesn't accept any kbd's.
    But the kbd's are O.K.

    To me that says there is something wrong with the ps/2 port.
    Have you tried a USB kbd?
