Thanks for the input guys. If we can't figure out anything else I am sure we will buy a usb keyboard, but don't want to spend money needlessly. I hope you are wrong about the adapter locutus but somehow I doubt you are.


 
I have one, sitting in a desk, 20 feet away.

(Maybe the drivers for odd things like that have improved, who knows?)


BTW Locutus. I didn't need to manually install any of the drivers for it. But Windows update installed them for me. So I couldn't use the adapter to fix the problem because the driver wasn't installed yet.

So did it work? All I know about those things is that the kind that I have where it just changes the wires around only works with keyboards that support that kind of thing. There's also the more expensive kind that actually modifies the signal, which works on all keyboards.

Oh, the site that was :(

I do not know which kind I have now. You can plug both the mouse and the keyboard in at the same time to the same usb port. And the keyboard will work although it is a normal OEM keyboard but windows just has to install the drivers first. I guess it is probably the kind that modifies the signal but not sure. Anyway it didn't work to fix the problem. But it only costed like 70 cents or something like that. So very cheap. And now we have it if we need it.

It is very odd indeed. The adapter that I have is a single USB plug with 2 PS/2 connectors for keyboard and mouse (basically same thing as Chinaguy's).

I've used it on many machines with different OS's (XP, Vista, Win 7) and it always worked (although I've had mine for a while…) Confused Maybe the new ones do require loading drivers.

Mine works too. But windows automatically installs thd drivers. And it can't do that before windows is booted up. So it can't be used during the boot sequence unless maybe the drivers have already been installed on the computer. Probably windows automatically installed the drivers for you and so you just didn't notice.

@china guy: i would recommend that your father not put his pc into hibernate mode anymore (sleep mode is ok). If I remember correctly, xp has known issues with hibernation.

I do not know if he will or not I already asked him and he said he would look at the optionsBut his conputer is vista not XP and that is the only time he has ever had a problem with hibernation. My guess is it hibernated because of a low battery and then the battery ran out before the hibernation process had finished so the file was corrupted because it wasn't fully written to the hard drive thus causing all these problems. He said that when he unplugged it to take it elsewhere in the house it was on but when my mom used it in like three minutes she said it had a problem and that is what the problem. His battery sometimes charges and sometimes it doesn't. So it could have been depleted and thus run out even though he was plugged in for a long time beforehand. But these are just guesses and conjecture. I guess I would probably advise him to set the level where it hibernates automatically to a higher percentage of the battery since his battery is a little old. Then he shouldn't have this problem again.

Actually he had the same problem again today. But I booted from the backup giveaway that I got before and deleted the hiberfil.sys. It was really fast since I knew what to do. But that first time it was really annoying. And the problem with his keys not working or else freezing the computer when they are pressed after the bios part of the boot sequence and before windows starts being loaded is still there. So it doesn't seem to be related to the other problem but something totally separate.
