If they have not been disabled unfortunately, this means you need a new motherboard....these parts are integrated and there's no way to replace them.

I have purchased a wireless mouse.Do I also need to buy a USB port?


You should have plenty of USB ports on your motherboard. or your case. If you don't have any open USB ports you can get a USB to PS2 adapter.

Ps/2 ports not working


Most likely the ports are blown. PS2 ports are very sensitive to static. Buy a USB to PS2 adapter and you will be back in business

Key board port is not working


Try another keyboard if at all possible. Port sill not working?
You can bypass the PS2 port for your key board. You'll need to buy a PS2 to USB Y cable. Places like Best Buy have them. Here is a picture of the cable;

How to disable ps2 on GA-8IR533 Motherboard


PS2 is usually disabled In the BIOS under ADVANCED or PORTS, but if that option is not available, I suggest you purchase PS2-to-USB adapters, then use your usb mouse and usb keyboard in the ps2 ports. Personally, I love ps2. id rather use USB for my cameras and scanners and drives rather than wasting those ports on a kb and mouse.

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.

I restarted my PC the other night, and now it doesn't recognize any external peripherals (USB/PS2). I've tried other keyboards that I know work, and I also did the same with the mouse, switching from USB...


Dear Sir,

Here is Some Hints to solve your problem.
1.Check the Bios your PS2 ports are enabled,if disabled enable it.
2.Go to the device manager see your PS2 keyboard Driver enabled or not.If disabled enable it.
4.Finally Check your computer with new keyboard.

if all these are correct... you still have a problem
Deffinately there may be a problem with PS2 port of your computer motherboard,Then only one option is remaining, you can use USB to PS2 Converter Cable,Or a USB Keyboard.
If you have any other query post a comment with more information regarding the problem.I will try to assist you more accurately

PS 2 port problem


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

VIA P4XB-M
http://www.via.com.tw/download/mainboards/4/11/P4XB-M.pdf

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).

USB Port Problems


Hi Jen Storm,

It is probably dirty on the inside. My guess is that Dust has built up on the motherboard and some moisture in the air has turned it to a conductive dust. This will casue a probably like you are seeing. Either Clean it up real good yourself or send it to a repair shopp. If you are looking for arepair Shop, Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen, and Click on "Video Game Consoles" Pick a good Repair shop in your Area, or Nation.
