What is the model number of your motherboard? VIA does not make Processor's/CPU's.
VIA makes chipset's for motherboards.
In order to answer your question I'll need the manual for the motherboard. No manual listed here: http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/mainboards/others/p4xb_m.jsp

Here is a picture of the VIA P4XB-M motherboard. This model can not use DDR2 memory. (Only, 184pin PC2100 DDR266 DIMM)
Found here: http://www.upgradecomputermemory.com/ram.cfm//memory/V/VIA-Technologies/P4XB-M-Motherboard/256MB-VIA-Technologies-Desktop-184pin-PC2100-DDR266-DIMM.html

99.0% of motherboards still use PS2 ports. One colored purple for the PS2 keyboard female port, back side of the MB & the other colored light green, female port, back side of the MB PS2 mouse port. By default, most motherboards have the jumper for PS2 keyboard enabled. Location for this two-pin jumper varies from board to board.
A USB port looks like this:

The PS2 port's are found in the upper left hand corner of this same picture. This next link will show how to connect USB motherboard jumpers including their wire locations. (Standard for most motherboard USB connections).

My friend has an hp he bought - one or two years ago, everything works fine except the mouse and keyboard ports are all messed up from the cords being ripped out and put back in, is there any way to just...


Try the keyboard and mouse on anothe system. if it works fine the on board PS2 port is most likely bad. Buy a USB keyboard and mouse in plalace of the PS2 keybaord and mouse or change the motherbord. If the keyboard and mouse is bad replace with a good one.

PS/2 PORT


There is nothing that can be easily replaced on a motherboard if your PS2 port has malfunctioned. Check your bios, if you have a setting labelled 'legacy mouse/keyboard support' make sure it's set to enabled. You should still be able to install windows while your keyboard is connected to the USB port. If everything checks out in your bios and you're still having this problem, it could be that you're using a USB to PS2 adapter, which causes some computers to glitch. Try another keyboard if you have one handy, it could simply be a compatibility issue with the windows installer.... rare, but I've been caught with it before.

PS/2 mouse port not working?


Hello fredbeer,

Besides the obvious checking with your device manager, you can download a port test kit HERE. That will be able to test if it's working. The other thing you can do is switch the keyboard into the mouse port and the mouse into the keyboard port. You should get some errors, if not, one of them will work and the other won't. Hopefully, you'll get the keyboard in the mouse port to work, so you know the port is working. Also, if you have any other PS2 devices that you can test it with.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating based on my solution.

Thanks

PS KB .MOUSE PROBLRM


that means you didnot clone the system yourself and it will be difficult for you to fix it. so get USB mouse and keyboard. thats the only solution for now unless you can talk it to a qualified repairer in your area.

the best solution is to get USB mouse since PS2 muuse is not working. and if you cloned the system yourself i suggest you take a look at the motherboar and youy will see a jumper labelled on the board PS2 keyboard and Mouse, place the jumper in the next pin. and try and see if it will work.

A USB mouse will work but the PS/2 mouse failed. What causes it?


Hi melch, On the PS/2 mouse, chances are that the surface mounted fusible link/resistor supplying the +5VDC is open. It is normally very near the PS/2 port and marked [0] or labeled F???. This can be verified by measuring the absence/presence of +5 at pin 4 of the connector. In some cases, it is the I/O chip that gets damaged. Re "only two(2)USB port" aside from the 2 rear USB ports, the Asus CUV4X-C has another pair of USB connectors that are normally connected to the front panel of the casing. It is located very near the motherboard battery. Re "...prompting...high speed USB port...", normally by updating your OS (say XP to SP2) or downloading/installing latest VIA 4 in 1 Drivers should make your USB 2.0 compatible. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
