Hi all,

I have a Dell GX520 PC, With USB port only, No PS/2.

When i booted the PC i got a message: BIOS: Keyboard failure: Strike F1 key to continue F2 to go to the setup utility, But the keyboard doesn't work

What have i tried:
- I tested different keyboards (which worked)
- A CMOS reset
- Battery change
- Controlled al the condensators (which where all fine)

What to do?
