i8042.c can't read CTR while initializing



It started happening yesterday afternoon when all of a sudden the system declined to take input as mouse and keyboard stoped working while i was working and finally i had to hard reboot. Fedora 11 box gave following message prior to the graphical boot process started off, and i was not able to use the inputs devices.
"i8042.c can't read CTR while initializing"

I was also not able to switch to BIOS setup while booting as keyboard was not responsive. Googling hinted the issue due to the USB devices connected, but i don't have any as both keyboard and mouse is PS2. With many hard restarts in vain finally was successful to boot the system [keyboard and mouse working] with the F11 DV.D. Later on updated the system thinking it to be some kernel issue, but again i was hit by the same issue while i was working today. Hence finally posting the issue.
Please help out if some one have ever faced the issue earlier.
