Most of the time the dongle (Ps2-USB adaptor)are not working if you can use it on the usb prot directly that would help you and you can also try to uninstall usb drivers from device manager and then restart the system it should work

Just buy a USB keyboard, that should work fine, it seems your PS2 port is faulty or its disabled in BIOS check there.

The pc does not recognize the key board and won't let me type. I have even tried a new Dell keyboard...same problem


Ok I am going to assume that you are using a keyboard with a PS2 plug. Try using a USB keyboard. If the USB keyboard does not work check and see if other USB accessories work.

If you are using a device with a PS2 type plug you should check the drivers for PS2 keyboards by opening control panel then click the "system" icon, then the "Hardware" tab, then "Device Manager"

If you are seeing a yellow exclamation mark then the device driver should be uninstalled. it should automatically reload when you reboot. If the PS2 port is bad you will need to have it serviced by a competent technician.

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.

The keys on my Logitech wireless keyboard have stopped working. New batteries installed. Shortcut keys to email, Internet home page, and calculator are working.


Did you press the connect button located underneath your keyboard and still didn't work?
  • It might need some cleaning?
  • Also check if is a key that has been stucked. Sometimes, removing keys and putting them back on will solve the problem.
  • See if the USB bluetooth is connected properly.
  • Check under the Device Manager. You might also need the Logitech updated driver???

Think for the possibilities. Let us know if one of the solutions worked for you.

Keyboard intermittent


There might be a problem with the keyboards PS2 port. You can bypass the PS2 port all together by buying a PS2 Y-adapter to usb port. This Y adapter will allow you to plug your PS2 mouse & keyboard into it and than you plug the other end into a free usb port. You do not have to plug the PS2 mouse in if you do not want to. Just plug in the keyboard. If your keyboard functions than there is a prolem with the keyboard's PS2 port. The PS2 Y-adapter to USB runs about $12.00 to $15.00. You can find one at Wallmart.
