Certainly won't hurt to try. Something is not making sense. I think Tim is
right to suspect hardware issues -- Jerome, did you hot plug that PS2
keyboard of yours? Can you borrow another keyboard from somewhere before
investing more money?

Thus far ive tried 4 different keyboards that all work on other computers
and are all ps/2 and every time I end up with the same result. As for
hot-plugging I have; however it was rebooted several times with each
keyboard testing different BIOS settings that had to do with the keyboard.
So unless hot-plugging can cause physical damage to the keyboard that should
be a nonissue.
You're sure that the keyboard isn't plugged into the mouse port, and
*some* things are accomodating that? But, otherwise, I can't think why a
keyboard wouldn't work in one OS where it does in another, it's a very basic
piece of technology. I'd be inclined to try swapping things around, if you
can borrow another to try.
Regarding this issue I am 100% sure I put it into the right port I matched
the icon of the keyboard at the back on the motherboard by the interface
with the picture on the end of the cable. Also the fact that they are purple
makes it kinda hard to screw up!
I am thinking of trying a usb keyboard; but if the ps/2 one doesn't work and
the legacy feature in the bios works to emulate the ps/2 connection then
wouldn't the same problem manifest itself?
