I have a problem in my keyboard, my keyboard power indicators like Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock doesn’t lighting.

I have tried replacing the keyboard by buying a new keyboard and still don’t work.

Is there any solution for this problem?

I don’t want a USB keyboard because I can’t go to the CMOS setup when using it so I preferred only PS2 keyboard.

I don't know the exact reason why the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock light aren't lit up. I was surprised to read your question that it is quiet same problem that I have been exercising. We have purchased an another new keyboard at present only Num Lock light.

I have just learnt that press on Caps Lock and Scroll Lock button the light will on. The Scroll Lock button is between Print Screen Sys RQ and Pause Break button. The Caps Lock button is between Tab and Shift button. On these three buttons when press once the light will lit.

There are only two possible causes why your keyboard doesn't seem to work:

1, the keyboard's port is physically damaged, and

2, the keyboard BIOS is not functioning. A good technician can always find a way how to fix a damaged keyboard port. He only needs to remove the port from being soldered on the board. Find a working port from another motherboard, remove it. Then attach it on your motherboard and solder it well.

But if the problem is a not functioning keyboard BIOS, no solution for this. A complete motherboard replacement is needed. The image you posted shows the BIOS unable to detect your keyboard. If the BIOS cannot detect the keyboard, just check if the keyboard is connected properly to the port.

You already said that you bought a new keyboard and it’s still the same. Consult a technician to give you an advice on the type of motherboard that you should be buying.

From what you mentioned, it seems that the keyboard is not getting any power or anything at all from the port where it is connected to. It may not be the keyboard itself that's faulty since another keyboard, a new one at that, did not work. Therefore, it most likely is the port where you connect the keyboard to that's faulty.

Since the port itself is integrated into the motherboard, you need to have the motherboard itself replaced. Otherwise, if you prefer not to purchase a motherboard yet, you might as well just use a USB keyboard so that you can work on whatever you need to do once the computer is able to boot.
