Bios will not find keyboard HP Kayak XM 600

This is not the only computer that has given me this problem. I have disposed of a number of them for the same problem. I shut the system down, open the case to add memory, a better video display, or in two situations, I moved the computers to another room. I plug everything in...power it up, the bios lights up the screen (telling me that the video is working, the memory is counted...without faults) and I get a msg. "keyboard not found." I cannot find any information regarding this problem...the "funny" thing about it is...I get a msg. "press F1 to continue"...there is no keyboard response. Gerry D.

HP AMD Desktop beep noise



HP BIOS beep codes
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/eng/support.html

Because Hewlett-Packard (HP) uses a variety of motherboards and BIOSs, their computers use a variety of beep codes. Instead of listing each model's beep codes, links are provided to the support pages of several popular Hewlett-Packard desktops.
Note: Hewlett-Packard and Compaq merged in 2002 and the new company dropped the Compaq name from all but a few consumer product lines--such as Presario desktops and notebooks. This table lists only HP-branded desktops, while the next table lists Compaq-branded machines.

Keyboard not found..


well despite the fact you have given up on me when we were attempting to troubleshoot your problem here is one more thing to try and it can't hurt... swap your keyboard to the ps/2 port you use your mouse on and plug your mouse where your keyboard was. the key here is that when you move the computer to another room... you would have to unplug the keyboard and mouse each time. swap them and see what it does.

Laptop keyboard is not working correctly


It does sound like your computer is confused as to what type of keyboard it has. You can try updating the BIOS on the laptop - based on the suggestion in this HP help document:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01458194&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3224049

Let me know if this helps or not.

Can't view ink levels


The computer or notebook that is connected to the printer needs the bidirectional settings turned on in the bios. To get to your bios you will need to press any one of the keyboard keys given here every two seconds while the Pc begins to start up. You can only try one key at a time. At boot up start pressing the Delete key as mentioned above. You will know when you are in the Bios because there is no mouse support there. Only keyboard. Instructions on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the window. Next try F12 , F1, F2 or F10.
Once in the bios you will need to find a setting that will allow you to set bidirectional on. You need your manual for this to help you find it. You did not list your Pc model.
You can fallow the instructions given by HP even though these instructions are meant for win2000 they will function in XP.

Post back if this fails & provide me with your model number & name brand of your Pc so I can direct you while in your bios.
Take your time!
