I open my Pentium MMX 200 unit, Win 95, and fitted an PCI modem. When I switch on I get the following BIOS message: "keybord error or no keyboard present". I tried three different keyboard, both the original DIN socket and the new PS/2 socket with no success. I understand fault could be at 8042. What is 8042 and can it be repaired or is it a chip.

My BIOS is Award Modular BIOS V4.51PG and
my chipset is SiS 5511/12/13.

Big question is can anything be done or shall I throw the matherboard away?
