    Have an FIC PT2006 with a 200mmx chip.
    Spilled water in keyboard about three years ago... got a new keyboard but
    still getting "Keyboard error or keyboard not present" error message. Mobo
    has been idle 2 years and I'm about to pitch it in the trash if I can't fix
    it. Bought another PT2006 on ebay for $3.49 but I get the exact same error.
    Passes POST, sees the HD. Did not install floppy. I'm figuring the keyboard
    controller is fried on both boards. Sounds like maybe the same thing
    happened to the ebay board (water spill on keyboard).

    Anyone ever come across this type of error? I could probably replace the
    keyboard controller if I could find it on the board and available for
    purchase.

    Hate to discard it. Was a perfectly usable machine.
