Help!! (EFI Shell version 2.31 (4.653))

Help, I recently built a computer, and after about a month this screen popped up and I can no longer go into the bios or Windows 8 and my keyboard will not be able to type.

I have Reyes other keyboards, so I do not believe the keyboard is broken, I'm not sure what is broken (if any) I have a hunch that the motherboard may have a role in this, but I'm not certain.

That's easy to test.

In reply to: Keyboard

Unplug USB things (except the keyboard) and all storage/boot drives and that should answer if the motherboard has an issue.

Again, this has prior discussions so I'll skip duplicating what was found before.
