My Asus M2N will not recognize any PS/2 keyboard that I use, saying there is something wrong with the drivers. I bought a ps2/usb adapter and it recognizes my ps2 optical mouse but wouldn't recognize any of the three keyboards I tried. I need to do something in BIOS and I can't without a keyboard. Also, where can I find drivers for a Pioneer DVR A09XLCI and a Lite On LH-52CIP DVD drives?

Re: Asus M2N keyboard problem
You don't need a driver for a PS/2 keyboard nor a USB keyboard. The keyboard lights should lite up at post. After boot press the Caps Lock key and it will light the corresponding light on the keyboard if the controller works. If not it is the motherboard. If you are strapped for bucks get a mobo that can use the same cpu, RAM and drives. Good luck, Steve Medley

Hi Richard, most enhanced keyboards need a specific driver to run. Go to the manufacturers website to download the driver. or search on Google. You might also have to enter BIOS (accessed when the computer is booting..look for a message that tells you how to get into BIOS, or look in your user manual). Often it can be accessed by pressing the DELETE or F1 key just after you power up. The option in BIOS you may have to change is something like "enable Legacy support for USB". Have you tried looking in the Dell support website? As you just recently(?) bought this, you can ring up Dell support centre and ask them to help. Cheers, Steve
I suspect you are using Windows Vista. Apparently, even though the motherboard was marketted as "Vista-ready", it wasn't quite ready. Numerous people have reported no problems with a single video card, but an inability to get two to work.
I could not find any reports to confirm what I suspect to be a solution. However, here it is: A BIOS update (shudder) may be inevitable. Don't panic! First, give driver updates a try. You might get lucky. You never know. The driver's are available direct from the manufacturer at this link: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N-E SLI
I further suspect the problem has something to do with the fact that a single card going into either PCI-E 16x slot runs at 16x (duh!), but that two of the same only run at 8x (huh?). This fact could have been easily overlooked with adjusting timing in the drivers specific to vista and is exactly why I suspect a driver update may be a possible fix.
Are you using a USB keyboard? If so, try a different USB socket on the back panel of the motherboard.
Some motherboards can use a USB keyboard in the OS, but do not recognize it on startup; they only look for PS/2 keyboards. If you can get into the BIOS, you may find a keyboard startup option that lets you adjust this behavior.
If you are using a known good PS/2 keyboard, your keyboard jack may be worn out or broken. If you have unplugged the keyboard and plugged it back in just before you started having problems, unplug the keyboard and look inside the plug for bent or broken pins. PS/2 connectors are really nasty about being forced in at the wrong rotational angle.
Worst case, and least likely - the keyboard controller chip is not working.
there will be 4 no of fuses near the ps2 connector pls check them with mm for connectivity if all are ok then check the R pack near ps2 connector if both are ok then bga chif of mbd faulty & not repairable
Best solution is this use usb kbd & mouse
Sounds like a bios issue. Try resetting the bios, pg. 2-19 in user manual. After clearing the bios jumper, make sure you set it back to pins 1 & 2. If you still can not get into the bios main menu than head to Asus, click this link. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-E%20SLI&SLanguage=en-us Since this is a new board & all Asus boards are warranted for three years I suggest you talk with an Asus tech. If you flash you're bios during the warranty period you may void the warranty. You can call Asus M-F, EST 8:00AM-5: PM. 1-812-282-2787. Not sure you have this number in you're manual. Chances are Asus will send you a new bios. Or you can buy a new bios for $5.00 not including S/H. From Asus online store. Click on this link. http://estore.asus.com/shop/
If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.
You should install the Chips drivers or intall all the driver in series listed in your CD Utilities. Its good if you download the latest drivers of your system at www.asus.com or here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
