Are you using ps2 or usb mouse and keyboard?
Is the bios up to date?
What is a pre-ps2 keyboard? ps2 keyboards have a small round 6 pin
connector just like ps2 mice. Old AT keyboards had a 5 pin din
connector that was quite a bit larger. Does anyone still use those?
Is usb legacy support enabled in the bios? (if you don't use a usb
keyboard, try turning it off).
Which window manager are you running? For a while I saw a lot of
lockups when I tried to run firefox under kde. Use anything other than
kde, and crashes/lockups went away. That was a few months ago though.
Seems better now.
