try shutting it down and restarting the computer shut it down for about 5-10 minutes then restart it when u shut it off unplug the keyboard and just before you restart the computer plug in the keyboard
If it is a USB then it should work with any keyboard and mouse. When you say it shuts off after XP loading screen, does the machine power off? have you tried unplugging the mouse and keybaord and let Windows load?
Check Your Keyboard Connection, Then Restart Your Computer
Checking the connections and restarting the computer will make sure the keyboard is plugged in properly and the computer is correctly recognizing the keyboard.
To check the keyboard connection and restart the computer: 1. Shut down your computer:
* If using Windows® 98 or Windows® Me, click the Start button, then click Shut Down. In the What do you want the computer to do? section, choose the Shut Down option by clicking it, then click the OK button. * If using Windows® XP or Windows® 2000, click the Start button, then click Shut Down. Click the What do you want the computer to do? drop-down menu to open it, choose the Shut Down option from the list, click it, then click the OK button.
2. Follow the cord from the keyboard to where it plugs into the computer. 3. Unplug the keyboard cord. 4. Wait for about 30 seconds. 5. Plug in the keyboard cord. 6. Turn on your computer.
1. if possible check and see how dusty the system is inside.. used compressed air cans to dust it off.. don't touch any components... watch esd so ground yourself while you're at it
2. you're power supply may be dying: ground yourself to the same ground as the computer (watch for esd) and replace the powersupply.
the keyboard or controller may be damaged, check for resource conflicts in your bios related with keyboard (make sure no other items are using the same irq's.. check plugs, test with other key board.. replaced motherboard.
random shut down could also mean that the cpu is overheating.. make sure the cpu fan is undusted and working.
