    possible you blew a fuse or circuit but will still show up as working in windows. do you have or can get a hd to load just windows on without any service packs to see if it is a hardware or software issue.

    so what about a spare drive? do you have or can get an usb keyboard as an experiment to see if can possibly work in the bios but make certain usb keyboard & mouse enabled on dos side before trying usb keyboard.

    if have a spare hd, use it in place of your current c: drive to load windows on. have to see if it is hardware or software issue.
