likely dying motherboard (you said keyboards, plural, so assume you have tried several). You could try resetting cmos (usually a jumper on the motherboard near the battery, often labelled jbat or jcmos or cmos - just move the jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3, then put it back & try booting again (go into bios settings if it works, may need to reset date/time & load defaults). Even if this does work, likely you will have more trouble in the near future (if really bad mobo). It could also be other bad hardware - so could disconnect hard/optical/floppy drives & see if it boots to 'can't find system disk'.
