My PS2 keyboard Model SK9920 does not work. The 3 green lights don't even blink at all when the PC is turned on. I tried a brand new keyboard and it didn't work either.
The keyboard was unplugged yesterday with power off but ac power cord still plugged into back the of the tower. The PC will not work without the keyboard connected (the monitor & PC itself go into standby mode). I Also hear a clicking sound from time to time (like when PC goes into standby mode or when it's shutting down). Also on startup I get "keyboard not found" error message, only when my keyboard is connected, I can't use my PC at all if it's not. The keyboard is not listed at all in device manager (connected or not).
If there's no quick fix and I will have to resort to USB, can I just get an adapter to convert my keyboard to USB? I would like to keep this keyboard if possible, since it seems to be ok. Also if I gave you the model and/or serial numbers for this PC, would you be able to tell me if there are fuses behind my PS2 ports? Please help me if you can, thanks. By the way, I'm typing this with the PC utility keyboard.

What do the battery lights mean on my mouse?
Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Single long green blink
Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on.
Slow green blink
Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly.
Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging.
Presenter Mouse (Japanese version)
Laser pointer is on.
Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver).
Slow red blink
Batteries are low and need to be replaced.
Slow red blink
Batteries are low and need recharging.
Fast red blink
Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error. Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad. Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them.
Presenter Mouse (Standard version)
Laser pointer is on.
Hi, please check your cables. And, let us know if when you turn on your computer LEDs flashes. If don't, please try it in any other computer (or laptop) you have. If it still not working, you will buy a new one. IF your keyboard have a PS2 connector (no USB), verify twice if you are using the right one (other one is for mouse)
With the buttons toward the top:
The top LEFT slider button is for power. Slide toward the outside for ON. Light on top of mouse turns green after about 1 second, and stays green for about 10 seconds (assuming the batteries are okay). When the batteries are failing, it blinks red.
The top Right PUSH button sends a connection signal to the PC. When pressed, the indicator light on the top flashes green and red, indicating the special connection signal.
This is the mouse side of the equation (good batteries, slider turned on, connection button pressed and released.).
NOW: the PC must have a working receiver, with drivers installed, and Bluetooth software installed. it sould detect the mouse. If it asks for a passkey, say none (mouse doesn't need passkey).
You should not need Microsoft Intellipoint. it doesn't have a configuration for this particular mouse model anyway.
Press the ID button on the receiver. LED will blink fast for a few seconds, then slower. Press the ID button on the keyboard and mouse (need a pen or something for the mouse button). Always works for me no matter which order I do them in. If receiver LED blinks whenever you mover mouse or hit key, it is receiving signal. (remember mouse sleeps after a few minutes and you have to spin the scroll wheel). If OS does not recognize on new computer, may be connectors. I had separate keyboard and mouse PS2 ports and had to use an USB adapter for the keyboard cable.
on the back of your computer box, you will (probably) find 2 ports that look like this. the PS2 mouse will be plugged into the green colored port. NOTE: PS2 mice (and keyboards) will only fit into the port ONE DIRECTION, so don't force it! make sure to line it up
once plugged in, you will need to reboot your computer, as PS2 can only be recognized while the computer is starting up.
one final note: some of the newest computers DO NOT have PS2 ports. if this is true of your computer, you will need to get a new mouse, or an adapter, like the one shown below:
This model keyboard has an internal USB hub and Windows only sees the hub when booting. The solution is to get a generic USB keyboard and boot into Windows. Once Windows has loaded the HID drivers for the sk-8115 keyboard then this Dell keyboard will work from then on.
If the USB to PS2 adapter has 2 PS2 ports, make sure it is in the correct one, but this should not be the problem. I have heard that some PS2 keyboards do not work with some USB to PS2 adapters.. Too much trouble to get a USB keyboard?
