Hey hey, old gang

Just wanted to say hello.
I used to frequent this forum a while ago and since I came looking for some info, I figured I'd at least say hi.
Looks like the old gang is still here, though.

All the best.

How are you guys doing?

Hey! Long time no see. I've been pursuing some other interests and haven't been active here in a long time. Looks like the forum is flourishing but I can still see some of the old familiar names, like Hardware Junkie (aka n][c IIRC), Tolemac, Aussie... All the best to you guys and, like the CA Gov. ...

Usually, a PCI serial controller is a winmodem, It sound like it's embedded in the mobo, otherwise you would not have said 'motherboard drivers'. motorhead is right, it may be a PC chips board, especially if it's a socket 7 (pentium 1 or K6). Try to identify it on this forum and then post for driver...

Thanks guys for trying to help out. This is not a system, just a P2B mobo with a cpu on it and a pci video card, attached to the psu. The message I get after the ide detection and after the keyboard keys flash is like "Keyboard controller error. Press F1 to continue or Del to go to setup." Not sure ...

I can't post the exact message until I get home tonight. Also, trying to press Del to get into the BIOS is completely ignored.

The keyboard doesn't respond at that time. Can't toggle lights on and off, can't get into BIOS. That's the problem.
It doesn't even get as far as trying to boot.

Thanks guys for the heads up.

One thing bothers me, though - the lights flash momentarily during POST. This could mean that the controller works and the keyboard responds, otherwise POST would give me a keyboard error, right?
Also, this probably rules out a fuse being blown - all three LED's flash.
