Okay, so here's my problem. I have owned my PS2, the fat one for a couple of years now. It worked completely fine until tonight when I wanted to play Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter online.
I turned my PS2 on and placed the disc in but it only showed me to that beginning screen but not to the main PS2 menu. The fan was spinning fine and I own the special hard drive for it but I see no light come from the bottom of the PS2 to know that the hard drive is actually doing something. All I hear is a fan going with no sound whatsoever. The disc won't spin, I see no light from the laser and there is no sound coming form the TV when the PS2 is on.
Is my PS2 completely dead?

this isn't my area of expertise but if you really wish to play resident evil, go on doperoms.com and go to emulators, choose a psx emulator and then download it then you can download any ps1 roms like resident evil and play them for free on your computer. it doesn't take a powerful computer, these games will run on an iphone 3g, leave a good rating if this helps
In Playstation Store, you should download (for free) the PS2 SYSTEM DATA (something like this). if you have formated your system, the files were erased, and the games won't play until you download the backwards comparibility files again.
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.
