    does your PC pass its POST test (ie. when it checks itself PRIOR to loading an operating system)?

    If not, then you have a hardware problem (probably a faulty cable).

    have fun

    USB Driving me crazy

    The USB keyboard works on other pc's but when try it on my box it gives me crap. I've tried it on a box with RH 7.3 and it worked fine. Regarding the POST, my pc passes if I try another keyboard, not USB though. When I use the USB keyboard sometimes it passes sometimes it does'nt. When it does pass half way through loading it tells me about the interrupt handler.

    Its confusing the hell out of me .

    have you been able to get the combination of that PC and that USB keyboard to consistantly work?

    If not, you have either a hardware problem or a BIOS problem on that PC.
