Keyboard Error???

I was installing some drivers on my computer and during the installation, my mouse and keyboard stopped working. When I did a reboot, everything was fine again.

The next day, I turned on my computer and I got a "key pressed error or keyboard not attached" error message. The keyboard was attached to the computer by the way. At first, I thought the keyboard was screwed up, so I used another keyboard which I knew worked. Rebooted the computer but got the same error.

Any guess on what's wrong with the computer here? I know for sure it's not a keyboard error but something a lot more serious, like maybe the motherboard is screwed up.

Sounds like you're right the mther board is screwed but first try going into cmos set up and restore default values. this should correct anything wrong in cmos.
