Ok, so I did a stupid thing. My wife's laptop broke down a few months ago, and we wanted to get some files off of the hard drive. I grabbed an extra eSATA cable and connected it to an extra port on my desktop motherboard... without remembering to connect it to the power supply. I already said I did a stupid thing, no need to remind me. Anyway, when I booted up the machine, I was unable to get past the BIOS, getting an error message "Keyboard Error or No Keyboard Present". Even after shutting down and removing the hard drive, I'm still getting this error message. We've tried a number of different keyboards and it's coming up the same every time. Someone suggested that I'd need to create a boot drive from a flash drive, but I thought I'd shoot the question to the forums and see if anyone else has been this stupid with their machine and knows how to get out of it. Much thanks.
