Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard

1 Answer

Does not work nor does a new one

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.

Did the old keyboard plug into a PS2 keyboard socket (round purple connector) or into a USB port (flat rectangular connector)? Similarly, what type of connector is the new keyboard?
If it is the round PS2 connector you may have connected into the green PS2 mouse socket instead of the purple keyboard socket. Although the sockets are similar, they work differently.
If it is USB, then try moving it to a different USB port.
Try the keyboard on another PC.
If you cannot get it to work then replacement keyboards are very cheap.

PS2 KEYBOARD & MOUSE Not responding.


Try connecting one at a time, if you connect the mouse don't connect the keyboard, and if you connect the keyboard, don't connect the mouse, reboot each time and check which one is the culprit. One of the port or device must be creating the problem. Good luck.

My power supply is blinking green light and my PC has no power


plug your pc directly to your wall outlet and see if it turns on. If it works, then the problem is your power supply. If power supply has a reset button, press it and try again. If pc does not turn on when plugged to wall outlet, then power supply for pc may be out.

If the light on the controller is flashing then the batteries are still good. There is a small reset button on the receiver that came with the controller. use a needle to reset it while it is still in the ps2. make sure that the ps2 is turned on and the green light is flashing on it. it should blink a few times and then the light on the controller should turn red. once it does then press start and your good to go.
Hope this helps!

I moved my computer and now my keyboard is locked. There is a light on the top right hand side of my keyboard that is highlighted green for locked. how do I unlock my dell keyboard


Is the keyboard usb or ps2? If its usb then try another port. If its ps2(Green) then power down the pc by holding in the power button for 8 to 10 seconds. Pull the plug and make sure no pins are bent. Plug it back in and boot back up. This should fix the problem if its ps2.

No output on Monitor


Check if any of the pins of the Keyborad PS2 jack. Looks loke during cleaning a few vital parts may heve moved. Unseat the RAM sticks and after cleaning insert it firmly. Check all cable and wires for snug tight connections. You could try to clean ur power switch too bt aerasol spray, but the main is the keyboard. Recheck for bent pins and/or any stuck keys on the keyboard. If evrything is OK and the PC still behves the same, try replacing the power supply (SMPS) with a properly functional one & if it works, simply buy a new SMPS and install it....sodeep

Use with usb adaptor


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?
