Keyboard intermittently working, constant flashing lights.
Posted on 2004-10-04
I have a pc that I have to rebuild, it was working fine on users desk.
I have moved it to our workshop to rebuild/image and when booting up using dos/network boot disk the 3 keyboard light flash constanly with 1sec intervals.
It looks to start flashing as soon as it prompts me to enter a machine name (boot disk gives the machine a compuer name, gets ip from dhcp, prompts for u/p, maps a few drives and runs powerquest image software.)
If I boot into the original install of win2k the keyboard may work or it may start flashing. When k/board is flashing the pc is still working away but no input is possible (k/board or mouse)
I have tried several k/boards and all are the same. The only thing I have done is remove the cmos battery to reset. There was a bios password which not one of our standard passwords
Motherboard is an intel 440lx, duel p3 with built in SCSI.
Anyone have a clue what is wrong?
