  • The keyboard will be recognized by the BIOS during POST and report or halt if there is an error or keyboard missing.

    I would recommend that you shut down the computer and unplug the power supply(or switch it off) before changing keyboards.

    Even if they are usb type connections, but especially a PS\2 connection, a hot swap is not a good idea.

    Try the change powered off and reboot.

  • Hi,

    It seems that it is a hardware issue, please try to boot the computer in Safe Mode for a test.

  • Good idea, but it still does the same thing I bought a usb keyboard and it did not make a differnce.

    Is the BIOS seeing the keboard.
