PS/2 to USB adapter

I recently decided to use a Belkin wireless keyboard with my laptop. Since the Belkin had PS/2 connectors, I purchased a PS/2 to USB adapter. It doesn't work. Is it a hardware problem or is it just not a feasible way to approach the installation. Can i in fact do what i want to do?

I have lost the usb adapter to my wireless mouse


If it uses a PS/2 connector (round with a bunch of holes in it) most computers have an input on the back near the top, usually green/pink, if you got the connector it will work no problem you won't notice a difference.

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?

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.

Keyboard error


I am assuming that the logitech is a usb keyboard and your old keyboard is PS/2 (round connector) if so you can get a usb to ps/2 adapter and that should solve your problem. If your computer is newer in your bios there should be an option to enable legacy usb keyboard and mouse support. Make sure thats on or enabled.

WHEN YOU PLUG IN THE MOUSE AND THE WIRELESS USB CONNECTOR THERE SHOULD BE A BUTTON ON THE MOUSE AND ONE ON THE USB CONNECTOR, THE BOTH HAVE TO BE DEPRESSED AT THE SAME TIME SO THEY CAN GET IN SINK WITH EACH OTHER, I IMEAN THE SAME FREQUENCES SO THEY CAN COMMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER.

How do you disable the HP info center pop up


I had a user with the same problem using a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse. This is a similar setup to most Logitech wireless desktop kits, there is one wireless receiver for both devices and it has a USB connector as well as a normally unused PS/2 (it comes with an adapter for the USB so you can use this on an old computer without USB). The user went on a trip and another "helpful" user that was in his office noticed the wireless receiver's PS/2 cable unplugged and decided to plug it in for him. I'm actually amazed that it worked as well as it did but Windows didn't recognize the keyboard correctly (103 key keyboard?). All I did to solve this problem was to unplug the PS/2 conector and load the correct software for the keyboard. I also put tape and a note on the unneeded connector to prevent this from happening again.

Belkin wireless keyboard receiver won't work with my laptop


Yes and no...
"Wireless enabled" means you do not need a separate adapter to connect to a wireless NETWORK or computer, not a peripheral device.

I assume the two connectors are PS/2- plugs - one pink, the other one green. What you need is a PS/2- -to-USB adapter that should have come with your keyboard. PS/2-in, USB-out, either with or without the cables (see picture)

Wireless keyboard


wireless keyboards and in wireless mouse devices, use the following methods in the order that they appear in.

Method 1: Try different ports loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device in the PS/2 port while the computer is running.

To determine whether the problem is related to the ports on the computer, use only the two cables that are included with the wireless desktop receiver, or the single cable that is included with a mouse.
USB keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer.
PS/2 devices loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations: • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer. The mouse PS/2 port on the computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer. • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer.If you have to change your configuration, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. If your mouse or keyboard has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other connection.
PS/2 keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Verify that the USB mouse is plugged in a USB port on the computer and that the purple keyboard PS/2 plug is connected to the purple PS/2 port on the computer. If you have to change the PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer.

Method 2: Install fresh batteries loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Both the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse rely on AA alkaline batteries for power. If the problem persists, install a fresh set of batteries in the device that you are experiencing problems with.

Method 3: Resynchronize your device to the receiver loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To resynchronize the mouse or keyboard to the receiver, follow these steps.

Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse more than six feet away. 1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. 2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

Otherwise, go to the next step. 3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of your mouse or keyboard. 4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.

Clean the mouse lens loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); This problem may occur if you are using an optical or laser mouse and the lens on the mouse is dirty. To clean the lens of an optical or laser mouse, follow these steps: 1. Use a dry cloth to clean the bottom surface of the mouse. 2. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 3. If you see dust on the bottom of the mouse, use a can of pressurized de-ionized air to blow away the dust on the lens. 4. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 5. If the pressurized air canister is not available, blow dry air on the lenses by using your mouth one or two times. 6. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 7. If these steps do not resolve the problem, use a cotton bud to clean the lens without scratching it.

Keyboard to Laptop connectors


go to Amazon.com, and look up ps/2 (which is the official name for the connector type normal keyboards have) to usb adapter, and you should find a little green thing that adapts your keyboard to usb. Make sure that the usb is a male end, and the ps/2 is a female end, or you've got the wrong one.
However, before you do that, I want to let you know that I just did the same thing, and I cannot get my Gateway keyboard to work on my HP laptop through usb. I have no idea why, and I am currently trying to find a solution. So I wouldn't suggest buying it until you know how to fix it. If you figure it out let me know.
