Question about Computers & Internet
Could be a bad keyboard connector plug on the board. It may have been damaged when it was disconnected from the port due to force or maybe static. You could try opening up the computer case and check to see if the port is loose or a solder connection might have come loose. If that is the case then you might be able to solder the loose connection back to the board. If the connection looks good and is not loose then the board might have a defective keyboard controller(will need new motherboard to fix). Also check all the screws that hold the motherboard to the chassi are tight because the motherboard uses these screws as a ground. And while you have the case open use a compressed can of air to clear out all the dust. Remember to ground yourself on the computer case metal or use a grounding wristband before touching the inside of your computer or static electricity could damage it. Also make sure it is unplugged of course. If it appears to be the motherboard keyboard controller is bad then I suggest that you purchase one of these http://www.usb-ware.com/usb-ps-2-adapter-uc451.htm then you can use a USB port to connect your mouse and keyboard. Or you can purchase a new wireless keyboard/mouse setup if you want to upgrade. Let me know if you have any questions.
