Hi,

    I have a laptop upon which some of the keys do not work. I have changed the keyboard and the SAME keys do not work. If i plug in a USB keyboard ALL of the keys work correctly. The situation also exist when in the BIOS (ie. before XP boots). Is this is MoBo issue or could it be something else ?

Thanks.

It's a problem with the keyboard controller that's built into the motherboard. The motherboard would need to be replaced to fix the issue.

check also the cable connector of the keyboard - there can be a bad contact..
