Is it a usb keyboard? usb keyboard support is probably off in the bios, so it will not recognise it untill windows loads driver for it. if you have an older keyboard around with the old purple PS2 plug on it, that should work for you to get into the bios. then turn on USB keyboard and mouse support.

How do you fix a corrupted bios?


I don't think it's corrupt bios, maybe a virus or malware.
But if you can go to the computers maker website and download bios and install them the way they tell you to install them.

Advent 4211c notebook bootmgr missing


Get your Vista installation DVD and pop it into your drive.
- Then restart your computer.
- Set your computer to boot from DVD or CD in your BIOS.

Vista will ask you for language and keyboard layout information, after which you will be asked if you want to re-install Vista or repair your existing installation.
Select Repair. After which Vista's System Recovery Tool will start.

Select Startup Repair and let Vista do its thing! That really is all there is to it!

I have a Asus P4P800 SE and the PS/2 ports do not work, there is a small amount of damage on the corner next to them, is there supposed to be a small component there and how can I access the bios without a...


No, there is nothing on the corner where you say it is damaged, i have one of these boards and still have the manual, the ps/2 sockets might have come away from the board and may need to be resoldered if anything. I am curruntly using a usb keyboard on my pc, and using vista, the keyboard automatically kicks it when post screen appears, what make of keyboard do you have? I suggest getting hold of another usb keyboard, they should be generic as soon as the computer posts. There is nothing in the manual that says there is a setting to change keyboards from ps/2 to usb. They should be generic.
post back if you need more help.

Emachine desktop is hanging at the intial startup screen


Most probably the keyboard has konked out. Simply try the same with a working keyboard & mouse, 'cos it seems to get stuck during POST(power on self test) due to one or more components malfunctioning. If you had removed the PS2 jacks recently, check for bent pins too.................sodeep
