Hello my friend.That error message has nothing to do with the actual keyboard.The POST/BIOS is reading a
single port bit in the system boards keyboard controller and detecting
this bit as being shorted to ground. On some systems there is a keylock
on the front of the case that allows you to "lock" the keyboard for
security reasons. It is this lock that is being detected. On a system
without a keylock, this error can be caused by one of the front panel
wires being placed on the wrong pin on the system board. Or by something
shorting out the keylock pin on the system board, or a hardware failure
in the keyboard controller, or using the wrong version of BIOS.So make sure if your computer has a lock key/button or something on the case that locks the keyboard.Also you can load default bios settings by hitting Del while you boot if you have change anything in the bios.
A fan that no longer works will cause a heat problem. While it may not cause a complete failure, it can cause some strange things to start happening. Your best best is to shut the PC down and remove the cover. Restart the PC an determine which fan(s) has stopped working.
At this point, you can either 1) contact IBM for a replacement fan or 2) remove the fan yourself and google the name and model number of the fan to find a direct replacement and either order online or 3) visit a local PC repair shop to buy a replacement fan that matches the defective one.
Buying direct from IBM will probably cost the most, but will be the exact type needed for your PC. Buying locally will probably be cheaper and faster, but may not be an exact replacement unless it is the same model, etc.
When calling IBM you'll need the computer model, serial number and any other identifying numbers on it for them to help you out.
You don't have to update your BIOS just to have it changed into English... It's all there, your problem is how to get into that change language area... Check your system manual I am sure you'll find what you need...
