Have you tried other PS2 keyboards?

Looks like the keyboard is just dead.

USB keyboards don't work with my MSI mobo so maybe try PS2 like talldude suggested. MSI have a terrible USB controller.

Try a seperate keyboard all together. You must have another one kicking around, you can buy them for $5.

yea, i make sure to have 2 or more spare kb's, a few mice (serial, usb, ps2), couple monitors, usb hubs, etc...for these type of problems when i fix pc's for people.

PS: talldude, you need to clean your pm box dude...
