Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I have been using a D600 for several years at home and on the road, and gave the docking station to a coworker over a year ago. No worries until recently when less than optimal ergonomics at home finally caught up to me. The machine has no PS2 ports. I have a wireless mouse with a receiver that connects via a USB port, but no good way to connect any of the keyboards I currently have. I do have an adapter that receives PS2 connection on one end and plugs into the serial (not USB) port on the other end - but I can't get the machine to recognize the external keyboard when connected this way. Is there a way to do it, or do I have to go find a wireless or USB keyboard?
Yes, you can establish your serial port in BIOS With the use of USB ports on computers the serial and com ports are not set up many times. Upon start up and before the windows login screen will see which key to hit to get into BIOS. It is usually an F# key. Once inside BIOS look for ports and toggle until the serial port is showing up. That will establish your serial port.
