Solution #1, Go to RUN type in 'msconfig'.
In startup uncheck MotiveSB.
Try to reinstall the keyboard driver. Solution #2
Sounds like it may also be dirt or some spilled soda.

If you feel comfortable about removing the keyboard, disconnect all the wires and cables, then give the keyboard a thorough washing. Then let it dry overnight.
If that doesn't sound like something you want to attempt, then you will have to take it in to a computer shop.

get to the main board of ur system there is a jumper near the battery .
change its position while power is off and get it back to its previous position. this way u will reset cmos to default.
if the computer starts hit delete to enter setup and load system defaults.save changes then exit.
ps: defected processor could be the cause

Guess what? it's the CPU. Changed it with a working PC same type and unit boots up fine. Guess we learn about new problems everyday.
I think it's high time these units start telling you what component or section of the computer is faulty...too many things to diagnose.

Go into the battery properties and check if the battery is charging. If it says it is, then test it, use the battery to see if it really is charging, they will sometimes give a false reading. If it's not charging, then check the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. If this all checks good, but the battery isn't charging, then I'm afraid you have a failed power management system on the motherboard. The power management system controls the charging along with other power related aspects of the machine. If the power management system has failed, then unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix it.
