Question about Dell (002TR) Motherboard
Need help. My Dell usb ports do not read the keyboard. I receive a keyboard error on boot because there's no power to the USB ports. Keyboards good. Tried plugging in a usb card to the PCI slot and it still won't read. Also, tried plugging in a usb drive, same thing no power. But wierd thing is the AGP card works fine and it boots up fine but it can't read the keyboard.
Thanks for any help.
I have had the same problem with my dell xps 400. What I did was purchased a usb power hub and that solved the problem for me. SAved me from buying a new mother board.

Follow-up from ron_va: I tried the suggestions above. Couldn't get to the bios since the keyboard input was gone. I even tried disconnectojng the hdd, and forcing to a bootable cd. Tried a known good PSU and pwr'd USB hub, but no luck. All indications were the mobo USB controller went bad. I ended up ordering a replacement mobo from dell ($159) and all is well, for now. After spending $800+ on a new XPS back in Aug 06, I wasn't ready to trash the system just yet.

You needed to configure bios (F2) when you first installed the processor,
now the Bios hangs before anything can happen, You need to remove the Bios Battery (looks like a coin on the mobo) for about 30 secs (with the power disconnected) then re-insert the battery and power on.
you should get the same power on message as you did the 1st time (maybe with a missings settings error too but this is expected)
Enuro12 is right about legacy USB in that your keyboard should work in BIOS (setup)
