Thanks for the suggestion.  My keyboard and mouse are both PS/2 but my
friends got a usb keyboard for his playstation and my mouse can connect via
usb so I will try it without using PS/2.

Are you using PS/2 or USB ... What platform? i.e. x86, ppc, x86_64 - I have
seen this a few times with PS/2 equipped computers, and it has always been
either a shorted trace, shorted pins, bad connector, or bad southbridge. (or
you could replace southbridge with what ever it is called by your chipset
manufacturer)

Has anyone ever had a problem with KDE where it runs for a while and then
locks up for no apparent reason, and when it does that the caps and scroll
locks start flashing?  Cause that happens to me whenever I use KDE.
