    Whodar here. When I reset the disk, both lights go on and I can type about 4 letters before the board quits working again. Any clues?

Usually,if you drop a piece of computer equipment, it's age does not have much to do with anything. It will break just as good, whether it's old or new. You said it : board is dead.

Check that you hooked up all the power supply connections. Try a new motherboard battery as the old one may be dead and the bios is not working. You are evidently not getting a post beep signaling that the cpu, ram, video are good.

Ctl + Alt+ Del is the normal way of starting up a networked computer on say Win2000 or XP etc.
It does sound like the keyboard controller has packed up and as that is part of the mother board, not easilly replaced. Try holding F8 key down as it boots, if the computer goes into a DOS menu, then the Keyboard controller is OK and you have to figure out how to reset the network setting on the PC. but you won't be able to do that without a working keyboard.!
You may have to format the hard drive and put a fresh sytem on it if the keboard driver is missing as there is no way of driving the system without an active keyboard.

Your keyboard ciruit board gets damaged,that's why it won't respond immediately or no response to a particular letter. So replace the keyboard as soon as possible. It's the only way.

Plug in another keyboard and type in the password.  Try to acess the bios and disable stop on keyboard errors. Or open the keyboard and unplug it compleatly if it helps.
Or take out the HDD and put it in an external enclosure or in another pc to get the data off.

File transfer from dead pc to another pc ?


It doesn't sound "kaput" it sounds like there's a graphics card issue or something. If you're just worried about the files you could take the hard drive out of the "kaput" computer and install it into the new pc. Just make sure to set it as a slave (not master) on the jumper ports on the back, or it'll fight to become the dominant hard drive to boot off of.

You might want to get a second opinion on that old pc (depending on who told you in the first place). If everything sounds normal, it's just not responding it could be anything really. It could be as simple as getting a new graphics card. =\

In any case the hard drive should still be fine. If you don't like the idea of taking apart your new pc, you could install the hard drive in another old pc (a friends or whatever) and take the files you want from there, put them on a removable device or burn them to a CD, then put them on your new computer.

Hope this helped!
