Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
I have a Dell 2400 desktop computer, that cannot load the keyboard system upon booting up. Problem started a few weeks ago, when I started to type my pass word in hotmail. I bought this computer new in 2003 and had not any problem until now. I tried different keyboards, but with NO success. All keyboards has PS2 plug. I purchase a new keyboard with USB connection. I found that if I connect both keyboards, the USB keyboard works great, but if I disconnect the keyboard with PS2 plug, USB keyboard won't work. Also, with both keyboard attached, the key board with PS2 plug is still dead. Upon booting up, there is beeps. I think there is one long beep and two short beeps. I am writing to you with the Dell 2400 that has this problem. Do you any idea, whats cause this ??
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.
