My computer's PS2 ports are destroyed (mouse and keyboard), they can't detect any keyboard/mouse that I plug into them. I tried to let a local technician repair my motherboard but he failed miserably, he even busted 2 out of 4 USB ports found in the back of my motherboard. So, I ended up using a USB keyboard and mouse. The problem is, every bootup the computer makes these annoying beeping sounds. These are the sounds that are made when you are constantly pressing a key on your keyboard, what's weird is that I am not pressing any key on the keyboard. The beeps still happen even if I disconnect my keyboard.
Before an OS is loaded, there are delays before a key pressed is detected. BIOS setup is so slow (i.e. it takes a while before the selection/cursor is moved down to the next option when pressing the down arrow key) since I think the keyboard controller (or whatever) is being flooded with key presses from a non-existing keyboard. The beepings stop when an OS is loaded (when the Windows logo is displayed on Windows XP and Windows 7, when grub is done loading the kernel for my Ubuntu live CD.).
How do I fix this problem? Thank you.
