    1. Check your Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch. If the system is connected to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard through a Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch, or console selector switch, then disconnect the switch and connect monitor, mouse, and keyboard directly to the system. If this solves the issue, please contact your switch manufacturer for support and compatibility on the switch. Some switches can have a firmware update applied to resolve common problems.

      Note: BladeCenter Telco chassis - The KVM module contains keyboard port, mouse port, Power LED, Location LED, Critical Telco Alarm LED, Major Telco Alarm LED, Minor Telco Alarm LED and a video port. The PS2 keyboard and mouse connectors are standard 6-pin Mini Din. The Telco alarms mirror the Telco alarms located on the front panel of the media tray because they use the same signal lines. The KVM module allows the connection of a VGA monitor for system maintenance and control. The video connector is a standard 15-pin VGA. The KVM module is hot-swappable. It is docked into an edge card connector located on the backplane:

    2. If you have your system daisy chained for KVM capabilities using the C2T port (e.g. xSeries 330),
      then you must flash the C2T firmware after flashing the system BIOS, in order for the mouse and keyboard to work. Otherwise, after a BIOS flash, you will lose keyboard/mouse capabilities unless you walk up to each machine and push the select button.

    • If you are using NetBAY Advanced Connectivity Technology (ACT) CAT5 cabling in your rack server, instead of KVM cabling, click here for ACT information.

    1. Check for POST/startup errors. If you are getting a POST/startup error on the keyboard and/or mouse:

    2. Verify that all items are firmly connected to the correct ports, and that the cables are undamaged with no bent pins. The PS/2 style mouse and keyboard ports look identical, but are not interchangeable. The mouse and keyboard must be attached to the correct ports in order to be recognized by the system and to function correctly.
    3. Swap each item for known good units. If a new item works where the original did not, then the original component must be faulty.

    4. If the keyboard works during the POST/BIOS screens, but not in the operating system, check software logs for device driver errors. Contact your software vendor for more support in configuring the I/O devices.

    5. Check the F1 Setup error logs for system component failures or errors. These are found under Event/Error Logs. Troubleshoot suspect components further to determine if the hardware is faulty. If an IBM component is determined to be faulty, please contact your local IBM Support Center for warranty replacement of the part(s). Please have the Field Replacement Unit (FRU) / Customer Replacement Unit (CRU) part number and Machine Type, model and serial number ready.

    1. Run hardware diagnostics. Replace any parts found defective.

    Download the latest diagnostics for your system
    1. If you can down the system, check the keyboard cable connector on the system unit for proper voltage.

    2. Power off the system.
    3. Disconect the keyboard cable form the system unit.
    4. Power on the system and check the keyboard cable connector on the system unit for the voltages shown:

      PIN Voltage (Vdc) 1 +5.0 2 Not used 3 Ground 4 +5.0 5 +5.0 6 Not used
    5. If the voltages are not correct, replace the system board. Otherwise, replace the keyboard.

    6. If these steps have not solved your problem:

    Your computer overheated, it needs a service/clean. With the vacuum cleaner. See my guide to get it working again, it is entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

    Install more fans, it needs cooler air to get into the chassis.

    Take care!

    Thanking you

    HP Pavilion a1150y fans run when powered on but windows doesn't load, monitor, mouse and keyboard do not work. (Running Windows XP)


    Believe it or not, it's due to a weak power supply. More specifically, weak voltage rail/s caused by failing Electrolytic Capacitors.

    A bad computer power supply is about 70% of computer failure.

    ALL the light use less than 1 Watt. EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

    A processor uses 55 to 125 Watts. Depends on the make and model.

    Since the power supply is weak, it doesn't have enough power to turn the processor on.
    No processor, nothing to find the Boot record on the harddrive. Nothing to get the Operating System going. (Example: Windows XP)

    No computer running, there is no signal to the monitor.
    Just enough power to light lights, and spin fans.

    First, check your monitor, Is the power light on and amber?
    If not , monitor is dead.

    If monitor light is amber, Check the power supply fans and cpu fan. See if they are operating ok.

    If monitor is coming on, fans are working, I would Pull out the adapter boards that are installed, then power on the unit. If the unit displays video, then reinstall adapters back in one at a time.
    Make sure you power down when ever you remove/install anything in the PC.

    yes the problem as you discussed was the processor's overheating. first, you need to open up the side cover of your casing then switch on check vissually if the fan of the processor is spinning if not then you need to replace this. and if this is spinning upon power on, the power supply will be checked its voltage.
