Question Laptop keyboard & Mandrake 8.1

My Prostar laptop keyboard will not work after just a few moments in Mandrake.... Any ideas on how to fix this? Or why this is happening? Everything else is fine.

I know the keyboard will work in Linux because I once had SuSE installed and it worked.

what do you mean by few moments. It looks like it stalls for a moment before reacting?

Well, the keyboard will work for about 1-1/2 min. after KDE has loaded. After that, it just stops responding. The mouse work, not the keyboard..... I am thinking the computer has not "locked up", but the keyboard has stop responding.....

Oh yeah, get this.....

I can plug up an external keyboard from a desktop system with no problem at all. That keyboard will work, but I shouldn't have to carry around an extra keyboard to use Linux on the laptop

Is that what you were asking me?
