Question about IBM SpaceSaver Keyboard

Old Keyboard on New Computer

My handy IBM SpaceSaver 2 keyboard (Part #28L3644) works well on my ThinkCentre M50 (Windows XP). But it's having trouble on my new ThinkCentre M58p (Windows Vista Business). I was able to use keystrokes (no trackpoint movements) to guide the new computer through its initial ("factory installation") startup, but then all response to the keyboard disappeared. I was able to shut down after I plugged in an Microsoft USB mouse independently.

What would help? Settings? Drivers? PS/2 to USB plug adapters? Magic pixie dust?

I enabled Legacy free on bios and that disabled PS/2 Port mouse and keybord so that I Can't have access to my BIOS to reconfigure it.Please, help me.

you might try resetting the cmos
then you might try using a usb keyboard. I use a usb wireless keyboard with a touchpad and it does the job. Good luck. After you clear the cmos and then turn it back on it should start re-decting the hardware.
