USB Keyboard? If so what has happened is the CMOS has reset to default settings which has legacy USB support disabled. You will need to attach a PS/2 keyboard and change the bios settings with that.

I doubt a 486 is using a usb.

About time to buy a new system?

I guess the fuse could have blown. Any numbers lock light at boot? Any lights on keyboard at all?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
