At the boot screen if I use a ps/2 keyboard and enter the default option the 
kernel will boot fine, but once I get to the login prompt my keyboard will no 
longer function. Then I must plug in my usb keyboard. 

If I use a usb keyboard and boot normally I get a screen full of "auixp0: codec 
read timeout! (reg 26)" 

If I use a usb keyboard and selection the no acpi option the kernel gets to 
"attimer0: attached to pcppi0" and then nothing happens

If I use a usb keyboard and selection no acpi and no smp then the kernel boots, 
but at the prompt my usb keyboard stops functioning. However I can then plug in 
my ps/2 keyboard and it will function

The USB keyboard is a Dynex model no: DX-MKB101
the ps/2 keyboard is an HP model no: 5187

The computer is an HP pavilion a1250n

There is nothing really special about the keyboards though they do have 
multimedia buttons at the top
