    Hi folks. I have a friend that is having problems with his pc. His pc will not boot to windows. It sticks at the post screen. The keyboard is'nt being picked up so I can't access the bios. Every thing else seems to be picked up , hard drives and so on, or so it says on the post screen. I've tryed putting in xp disk but it wont even boot to that. It just sticks on the post screen. No beeps or anything. I think the motherboard is perhaps fryed. What does everyone else think.

    Cheers
    Doom

    Was your friend trying to install anything?

    try booting the pc with the keyboard unpluged and see if you get 301 keyboard failure error. This will let you know if the pc is trying to find the keyboard
