Keyboard stopped working


Hey, my keyboard stopped working, even on bootup.

When it says press ESc to skip, i press esc and it doesn't work. Neither does DEL.

So. I tried two OTHER keyboards (btw these are old 5 pin ones -- with the big plug) and neither of them worked.

I'm in the final stages of making it a workstation, and to have it die is sad. WAHHHHHHH!

Any ideas? Did i break the input?

Can anyone re-direct me to a forum that would know?

My guess is either the connector on the mobo is bad.... or the BIOS is possibly corrupt. You can try a BIOS reset (usually pulling the battery out for 10 or 15 min will work, but you may need to set a jumper as well... consult your mobo documentation or google), but no guarantees on that one. If multiple keyboards are not working then it's something with your box.
