Very strange as to what is happening.
I brought my friends tower over to my place to remove several viruses and spyware. I connected all the wires to the back of the tower, and for some reason the keyboard isn't working. No characters are typing, I try to turn scroll lock/num lock/caps, on and off and neither works as well. It's as if the keyboard isn't plugged into the tower. I tried 3 different keyboards with the same result. The mouse is working, but not the keyboard.

I have worked on her cpu before, so this is really stomping me.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

etaf, thanks for the prompt reply. The funny thing is, her keyboard works on her cpu. But mine doesn't. And they are 3 new keyboards. Under the control panel I clicked on KEYBOARD, and clicked on the hardware tab to troubleshoot it, it doesn't even recognize that a keyboard is plugged in.

I may have to go to her place to solve the virus issue, but this keyboard thing really surprised me. Unless there is anything else I can do, thanks for helping me.

I assume all PS2 keybards

I know how long some of these scans can take - when you are in someone elses house - at least at home you can get on with other things
