Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I had three our four power surges, and my computer seems to turn on and work fine, as well as my monitor, but my keyboard is acting weird. I plug it in, and the lights flash, but after that, it doesn't respond. I don't know what to do. Is it fried?
It's possible the keyboard was damaged with the loss of power. Do you have another usb slot to try? You can try updating your drivers sure but there is no guarantee that will help either. If you want to do that try using an automatic driver updater. It will quickly identify your hardware and locate the proper drive for each device.click and get a free scan. I recommend scanning your system at least once a month to make sure your driver stay up to date

Yes, it may be that the +5v supply from the PSU is faulty, as the PS/2 ports run on 5v and USB runs on 9-12v. Replace the PSU with another of the same form factor and same power rating or better (>=230W). They come at ~£30, so not too expensive. For a little more. Try this:

Hi hearalso, down to the basic's. Replace power cord.
No help there than, remove the case's side panel to expose the motherboard. (Normally it is the left side panel while facing the front of the PC.)
Look closely for a small (green in color) led light. The power cord must be connected to the PC & connected to you're power strip but do not press the power on button on the PC.
The green led tell's you the board is receiving 5volts. Check all connections. Un-plug & reconnect every data & power connector in your PC. (Double check). There is a fuse inside your power supply that may have blown. Check you're manual page, Approva Statements B-1. Fuse Warning Instruction Caution.
Check fuse in power supply. (Unplug power cord before opening).
If you can not power up the PC after all of the above than if possible, swap out the power supply.
Replacing the power supply is the last step.
If you have more questions, feel free to ask.

First make sure that you have your keyboard and mouse in the right ports. After boot your computer in safe mode and check them. To enter safe mode press f8 once you turn your computer on

Based on your previous troubleshooting, with both built-in video and alternate video card, I'd guess you have a bad mobo. Anything else that was wrong with it (RAM, CPU, etc) and you'd get beep codes.
Sounds like it's time for a replacement board. If the eMachine is out of warranty, it might make more sense just to go ahead and upgrade now, as they are so inexpensive. If you are capable of replacing the board yourself, that would be the cheaper alternative.
Hope this helps - remember to rate (and great troubleshooting, btw!)
