I can't get keyboard working with a "DTK PIM-TURBO 8MHz TURBO BOARD REV-1" 8088 motherboard. This is what I get:

DTK Corp. Computer XT
DTK/ERSO/BIOS 2.28 (C) 1986
.K-B Error !
RAM TEST .. 640K

Then it fails because there is no boot device. Striking any key to reboot does not work.

I have not been able to locate key lock and I have tested with two different PC keyboards (and with AT keyboard too).

Any tips?

Assuming http://www.uncreativelabs.de/th99/m/U-Z/31728.htm is your motherboard, does anything happen when you change the keylock jumper at JP8?

Stupid question time: You are using an XT keyboard and and not an AT/PS2 one right? The protocols are very different.

So I'm assuming yes...

I got the same K-B Error today, and was wondering what was wrong, as the keyboard used to work just fine. Found out it was because I had accidentally switched the computer to locked position with the front key. Once unlocked, the keyboard worked again.

I note that Trixter responded to a 2014 inquiry in 2017 and I followed suit. Nothing like beating a dead horse, eh, Jim! ;)

Maybe the post took 3 years to appear with the OP being a new member at the time. :-)
