Could be a number of things...motherboard,hard drive going bad or as simple as a virus/spyware problem. I would formatt & do a clean install of windows to illiminate any virus problems. Then if it still has this problem, look to the motherboard & hard drive.

Enable PS2 & USB in BIOS You can enable PS2 and USB settings in BIOS by entering the BIOS setup screen when the computer boots. You will need to changes to the appropriate settings in this screen. The exact procedures vary by system, but there are a few common methods that may work if the motherboard manual is not available for guidance. The general procedure is the same for any modern computer system, but the menu arrangement and keystrokes to enter the setup program can vary greatly from one machine to the next. Power on or restart the computer and watch the initial boot screen to find the keystroke required to enter BIOS setup. This is often shown at the bottom of the screen.

Keyboard error of pc p4 compaq


Check that it is indeed plugged into the purple PS2 port on your computer, if the keyboard is USB then try alternating ports. Some-times just by plugging it into another USB port it can work.
Also it maybe that the keyboard has died, try a friends keyboard on your computer to test it. Try do as much as possible before purchasing replacement parts.

Take care!

The system won't boot up and I keep getting a keyboard error that says I need to replace my keyboard


1)chect to make sure a keyboard is in the PS2 port or usb, whichever you are used to. 2)if your computer gets past this screen but does not boot, you will need to reinstall your OS, but this will delete all your data. if your keyboard problem persists, get a different keyboard with the connector you usually use.

Trying to install windows and at the boot screen have my keyboard and mouse plugged in windows doesnt see it.. I tried the USB keyboard and nothing I just recently replaced the MOBO using anti-static wrist...


I have seen this before, and the best answer I can offer you is some Motherboards are better than others when working with usb devices while no OS is in place. I actually tried using usb / to / ps/2 adapters and it still would not recognize the usb keyboard in a couple of instances. I had to get a ps2 keyboard for the installation of windows. After windows was installed I hooked up the usb keyboard and it worked fine. (just speaking from my own personal experience here)

Sorry I do not have a more technical answer for you but I'm almost 99.9 % sure this should work, providing there is no problem with the ps2 keyboard port on the Motherboard. I have never failed to install windows unless there was another hardware based issue of some kind, but never a problem with a known good ps2 keyboard.

Just double check everything is seated properly and try to get into the bios setup, if you cannot use the usb keyboard for this, you can try the usb / ps2 adapter, but if that doesn't work either then use a regular ps2 keyboard. That should work fine, then after setup is complete, windows is installed, then your usb keyboard should work fine.

Mouse trouble


start (button) select control panel / system / hardware / device manager / mice & pointing device / double click, select wheel mouse (or whatever mouse you have) right mouse click, properties, select use this device (enable) - But I'm surprised you are having trouble with it.. Have you changed anything recently? Have you always used a ps2 mouse? Try connecting the mouse & re-booting the pc.. Also make sure it's plugged into the correct port, not the ps2 keyboard port.. Especially checkif you are using a usb keyboard.. Rgds
