Keyboard, keyboard controller or gate A20 errors
Explanation: The keyboard controller is a chip on the motherboard that communicates with your keyboard. It also controls the A20 gate that provides access to the high memory area (HMA). There is a failure somewhere in this part of the system.
Diagnosis: An error of this sort is usually a problem with either the keyboard or the motherboard, possibly specific to the keyboard controller.
