Jumper probs.....
 
My friend has a system with an Iwill KK226 motherboard, an Athlon chip (not sure of the number), a Western Digital 120GB hard drive, two CD-ROM drives (one reg, one R/W) and a floppy drive.

Recently, his keyboard and stopped working, and at the same time he noticed that a jumper had fallen off (of either the motherboard or one of the drives) and was at the bottom of his PC case.

He got a new keyboard and we attached it, but it will only work in safe mode. We read the Iwill diagram and manual, but there was no mention of what could cause this. We worked for 6 hours yesterday trying to boot with different disks and hard drive jumper settings. Now it will boot from the CD-ROM, but it comes up in safe mode with an error about the I/O driver (yet we can't install the driver software from safe mode).

Can any one over here troubleshoot this???

I take it that all the drive jumpers were accounted for?

The easiest way to check where the jumper has come from would be to check manually, starting at JP1 and working through them all in order until you notice a jumper missing then close the jumper (connect pins 2 and 3) with the cap. Reboot machine and see if she works...if not remove the jumper and carry on up the chain. Takes a while tho...

Or you could contact the mobo makers and ask them about it...... :lol:

I just did a quick search and could not turn up anything in terms of a keyboard jumper for the IWill. I have never really heard of a keyboard jumper so not sure what the problem is. Have you tried re-setting the bios with the default settings? It is possible this is a bios issue as opposed to a jumper issue. Also do you have a usb keyboard adapter to test and see if you can use a keyboard like that in the interim?

Probably best bet is to contact IWill, but in the meantime, I would reset the bios to default settings, and try out a usb adapter.

Are the keyboard and mouse USB? If you have some experience you could solder the pins back on, just contact the manufacturer beforehand and make sure you will be able to do it, or else you will ruin your motherboard.

Nice specs.I think you have to go to your local store to replace this one.
I think the motherboard is the problem here.The I/O ports.

that's a new one on me, my problem is usually getting the jumpers to come off. If you have the time, FireFox's suggestion is the most efficient, you won't hurt anything by connecting the wrong pins, the only thing you may have is nothing happen,lol, thus you have chosen wrong.
There should not be 'that' many places for a jumper to go, there are are only at a maximum i would say 5 or 6 sets of pins that could be left uncovered, so if it really is a jumpre issue then it sholud be solved in an hour or so.
If this does not work (and i'm imagining it won't, as i've never heard of a jumper controlling I/O ports, those are usually hard wired) then you'll have to bite the bullet and take it in for repairs.
