Question about Motherboards
I built a computer out of an Intel SE440BX-2 motherboard that I picked up at a garage sale. I put it together using parts I had around my house, and installed Windows ME on it. I found an old, generic PS/2 mouse and a Gateway Anykey programmable keyboard from an older computer and used them.
It worked fine for a while, and now every time I use that keyboard, the computer starts up, but the keyboard won't initialize and doesn't respond when I press any of its keys. On top of that, whenever I move the mouse, it emits a steady stream of short beeps. Sometimes it'll open about twenty windows explorer windows, too. It's really weird. I think I've heard that computers will do that when there's a stuck key on the keyboard, but the keyboard's fine. Although, one key does seem to have had something spilled into it. Any ideas as to what the problem is?
