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.

Need to use a Dell L100 keyboard on my old Win 98 SE computer (custom built). No USB on computer so tried an adaptor. Doesn't work at all. Do I need to download a driver? Where can I find this to...


Hello,
Those USB to PS2 adaptors are hit and miss. They shouldn't need a driver. What you could do is buy a USB PCI controller, which will allow you to connect USB devices to your legacy system. Best buy sells one for $20 and it works for 98 SE - Windows 7.

All of a sudden my Dell Dimension 8250 has ''Keyboard failure''. The keyboard is a Dell SK8110 - PS2connector. If I get a USB adaptor, will that bypass this problem? Or is this a driver, registry issue?...


Hi, if you are using a PS2 connector keyboard, I would say that it's a goner. Buy a usb keyboard from any store and that will fix your issue. Don't get rid of the PS2 keyboard until you see your new keyboard working.
Take Care,

My dell sk8110 keyboard has a round purple connector plug that fit my old computer. My new computer has only USB ports. How can I connect my keyboard to the new computer?


http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.phtml?keyword=usb+adapter+ps%2F2&category=
The round purple connector is refered to as "PS/2" type connector. You can find an adapter that converts PS/2 to USB connector. The above link was just to show what I was refering to. Hope this helps.

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?
