What is the connection type of your keyboard? is it PS/2 or USB?

well, if your keyboard is a PS/2 type, there might be a problem with the PS/2 keyboard port, because you've said that it works well with your other PC.

if your using a USB type of keyboard, well try to check if your SYSTEM BIOS supports USB Keyboards. because there are some PC doesnt supports USB keyboard on its BIOS. if it supports, well, enable the USB Devices on your BIOS settings to ON.

The hard drive may be going bad. Try booting into Safe Mode to see if it boots into Windows. Then I highly recommend backing up all documents onto a flash drive or portable hard drive.

Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing ESC button, or delete in some machines. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system.

I got this really old HP Pavillion ZD7260us Laptop a friend left it to me with no HDD and no memory.So i went to buy a DDR PC270 512mb SO DIMM memory and an 80gig IDE Hard Drive. So i tried to install it...


try plugging a standard pc keyboard into the ps2 slot ,if it has one, if not use a usb keyboard. That should tell you if the keyboard is malfunctioning. As for using the hard drive with no caddy it should be fine as long as you pad it it securely, to stop it being knocked about etc when moving the laptop. Also you will need to enter the bios and set ideo 0(the hard drive) to auto detect. As it is more than likely detecting the old hard drive in the bios settings not the new one?

The Keyboard not working, MS Wireless, laser, desktop 5000


i don't like the sound of you taking the hard drive out of a old computer and loading it in your new one without reinstalling windows especially with windows XP your choice i guess.

Did you try and couple the keyboard and receiver by pressing and holding the button on the keyboard for a while?
