No Keyboard Detected, but all 3 of keyboard's LED lights a

Specs: Windows 7

Hello,

Today, while I was deleting a file on my computer using the Shift + Del command, my computer let out one long beep, and the display (and the keyboard, and the mouse) froze.

I tried to reboot, and I noticed that all 3 of the keyboard's LEDs (Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock) are open, but my screen displayed a "No keyboard Detected, press F1 to continue" error.

This error is somewhat ironic because I can't really "press F1 to continue" since, you know, my keyboard keys aren't working, but it's making me wonder what happened because even though the keyboard keys aren't working, all the keyboards LED lights are open.

Any idea what's going on?

Look for stuck key(s) and reconnect the keyboard cable from ps/2 or usb port.

Hi, there aren't any stuck keys on the keyboard. I tried reconnecting it to the port, but the three LED lights are still stuck. The other thing that's stuck is my computer when it boots, I can't get past the "press F1 to continue" screen

Does the keyboard work when you first start the computer?

Is the keyboard USB or PS/2?

It's a PS/2 keyboard. I'm using my laptop right now because my PC's keyboard isn't working when I start the computer.

Have you tried to enter Windows safe mode, or setup when first starting the computer? You need to start tapping keys immediately after starting.

Are the same lights on the keyboard when you first start the computer?

Have you tried another keyboard?

You could try clearing the CMOS by using the clrcmos jumper, or removing the coin battery while the computer is unplugged.

I couldn't enter safe mode because my keyboard doesn't work (the keys itself aren't working), and yes, the lights are the same.

I should consider buying another keyboard (no other keyboard available in our house) and clearing the CMOS, thank you for the reply.

Try clearing the CMOS first.

Also, try blowing out the junk that can collect under the keys. Do that while the keyboard is disconnected and help upside down.

DO NOT connect a PS/2 keyboard while the computer is under power.
