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).

I have a dell inspiron desktop that has no ps2 port, only USB. From my older computer I would like to use my microsoft ergonomic keyboard that has a ps2 plug. I bought a PS2 to USB adapter but when I...


Hello,

The adapter you purchased is for use with a PS/2 mouse only. The only keyboard adapters will have keyboard and mouse in a "Y" adapter. The single adapters will not work for keyboards because they do not have the conversion electronics to go from PS/2 to USB, mice can work on either one. Do a google search for "usb to PS2 dual port adapter" you can get them for around $2 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

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.

I just purchased an iogear GCS1742 2 port kvm Switch. The keyboard is the only piece of hardware that will not work. I have two cpu systems and one monitor. The keyboard has a PS2 connector with a usb...


Bill,

Due to the keyboard emulation that the GCS1742 uses it may not work with a PS/2 to USB adapter. If possible try using the KVM with a basic USB wired keyboard. This will tell you if the KVM is in working condition or if there is a problem with the actual KVM. If the KVM does not function correctly with a basic USB wired keyboard then I would think there is a problem with the KVM.

Can you play ps2 games on ps3 40gb


Not with the discs...ONLY if you download the game via the PSN Shopping network.

You can only play PS2 games on units that have 4 usb ports.

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.
