Nothing out of the ordinary.. I've got a Abit VT7 socket 478 mother
board with an Intel P4. Standard Western Digital 120GB HDD. I've got
video and keyboard/mouse running through a KVM switch, so after reading
what Greg posted.. I can see why I would be having issues with inputing

Any further details about your hardware specs in general?
