Odd problem with compaq desktop

 k4ng4r005 -
My computer has been having issues recognizing my keyboard until I have rebooted, well today, my cpu would shut off a few seconds after turning on. I unplugged everything except the power and turned it on and it stayed on like normal, I plugged in the monitor and everything was how it was, then I tried plugging in the keyboard and my cpu shuts off shortly after. Everything else works when plugged in.. I don't understand, any help will be much appreciated..

Hi there,

Is the keyboard usb or ps2 type?either the keyboard port is damaged or the keyboard is creating conflicts with system,please give more information.

its ps/2 older keyboard around 6-7+ yrs,
It's a ps/2 i would say about 6-7 yr old keyboard, I think it's shorting out the cpu but idk
