Your IBM 300 series desktop computer is normally set to boot
its operating system directly from the installed hard disk drive.
There are some cases where you may want to boot from a
different device, such as loading from the floppy drive to install a new operating
In order to change the boot order on the IBM computer you

Close any applications that are still running.
Turn off the IBM 300PI computer and then turn it back on

If you have another computer that will hook up to the internet, download a copy of any live Linux CD (UBUNTU) and see if the computer will boot with that (you download a image file that burns to a boot able cd). If it will boot with a live CD, then you have a Hard drive / operating system problem. If it will not boot from that, you have a mother board problem. Start removing things from the motherboard, unplug and remove everything then plug hook up things one at a time.
Hello my friend.That error message has nothing to do with the actual keyboard.The POST/BIOS is reading a
single port bit in the system boards keyboard controller and detecting
this bit as being shorted to ground. On some systems there is a keylock
on the front of the case that allows you to "lock" the keyboard for
security reasons. It is this lock that is being detected. On a system
without a keylock, this error can be caused by one of the front panel
wires being placed on the wrong pin on the system board. Or by something
shorting out the keylock pin on the system board, or a hardware failure
in the keyboard controller, or using the wrong version of BIOS.So make sure if your computer has a lock key/button or something on the case that locks the keyboard.Also you can load default bios settings by hitting Del while you boot if you have change anything in the bios.
boot in bios and reset the intrusion to read and clear it out alot of times the bios will use its backup when cleared clear the ir setting as weel and remove any passwords in the security setting in the bios if you are using a pov card you may have to take it and reset the machine then disable the card funtion reinstall then reset the card from there
Install a new CMOS battery. Go to walgreens, walmart, something and buy a new one. This is located on the motherboard. Following this, you may need to flash the bios, and reinstall with a newer updated version.
