The machine in question needs repair. I'd look at trying another PS2 keyboard and then the common F1 Keyboard fuse.

Then the motherboard is likely toast. Sorry to hear about your loss.

But this means that you didn't understand the content. The words I wrote do find articles about that fuse. Don't worry about it. Not everyone operates multimeters or has a solder iron. Find a technician to check the keyboard fuse on the motherboard and try other PS2 keyboards.

- Did you try another PS/2 keyboard? That works in 90% of the cases. You don't really tell if you did.
- If it doesn't work, that fuse needs to be replaced. If the google hits don't have the information to let you do that yourself, find a qualified tech to do it. That should work in 9% of the cases.
- In the remaining 1% the whole motherboard (or the whole PC) needs to be replaced.
