    keyboard fails to work

    Hi folks,

    Motherboard Asus A8NVM

    keyboard fails to work

    This happened after an incident of power interrupt. The power supply was accidentally interrupted while the PC booted CRrom. It just started to boot. From that time onwards on starting PC, pressing [Del] did not start BIOS. The PC booted straight to HD, boot sequency set, floppy/CDrom/Hd. After booting up the OS (tried FC5_64 and WindowsXP as well) keyboard failed to work. It did not type on Doc., such as Editor, Webbrowser, etc. Changing another keyboard did not help. Pleasd advise how to fix this problem. TIA

    You have to check the connection some how. If it doesn't see the keyboard then its not going to work.Do the lights flash when you switch on ?

    Hi tytower,

    Tks for your advice.

    Problem solved by removing CMOS battery and replugging it back about 10 min later. Then turned on PC booting straight to BIOS default.
