Try blowing compressed air on your USB ports (make sure the PC is off when you do it).

If that doesn't work, then you've already given yourself the answer - you bought a new keyboard and it has the same problem, that means the motherboard isn't transmitting your keystrokes to the hard drive via the RAM.

As a result, you will need a new motherboard. If your computer was bought through a manufacturer, check to see if it's still within warranty. If it is, you can get a motherboard for free and probably have someone install it for you for free as well.

Otherwise, you'll have to investigate costs and see if you want to buy a new motherboard plus the costs of labor or just cut bait from the PC and get a new one.

It could also be a Windows issue. Before spending money on a new motherboard, see if you can boot to the BIOS. If you can maneuver around by using keystrokes or are able to change parameters such as the date, then it's not a keyboard issue, Windows has become corrupt.

"that means the motherboard isn't transmitting your keystrokes to the hard drive via the RAM."
You have a lot to learn about how computers work.

I take it you are joking?

I've never seen a more ridiculous explanation of how computers work.

The theory is that when a hard drive fails a computer stops working,therefore everything computer does revolves around the hard drive. Simple really!

It is almost as good as the theory that computers work on smoke because when the smoke escapes they stop working.

Stuart, you have to run nosmoke.exe to keep that from happening.

Google "nosmoke.exe", it's funny how many hits there are.

Ah, give him a little bit of a break. He's just a kid. He's learning. I mentioned to him in another thread that he can learn from this site as well as dispense advice.

About the keyboard problem, you mention PS/2 but apparently are using USB. Does that mean you've tried PS/2 keyboards as well? Or are you using an adapter to connect a PS/2 keyboard to a USB port? And one of your tags is 'playstation'. Does that in any way relate to the problem?

hello guys,
sry for late reply, figuring out of this problem
i think i solve the problem, i try to connect it repeatedly by usb port 1 and now that 1 is working,
about the previous 1 it's ummmm.... idk working or not, it starts working but for only 1 day... then again that problem only after trying to resolve the problem of previous 1 keyboard the mouse also stops working

Then i try to run the new keyboard (USB) then i think in 5 attempts it starts working....

sooo, i'll take another risk to resolve the problem of previous keyboard about after 2 months..... cuz that 1 was better than this new 1...

Thnx for helping guys :))
