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.

Keybord is not working


make sure the Ps 2 or the usb lead connections are secure (if applicable)
make sure the batteries have charge and are getting good contact (if applicable)
try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor or a can of compressed air making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
or if this does not fix the problem
Click start control panel keyboard hardware make sure you have the right keyboard selected
or you might have uninstall the keyboard then restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboard you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it

rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

Keyboard stopped working


http://www.ascendtech.us/emachines-kb-0705-ps-2-keyboard-black_i_kbdemkb0705bps2.aspx

Things I see here.
1) The second Keyboard you plugged wasn't any good either.

2) The PS/2 port for your keyboard on your motherboard, isn't any good anymore.
Computer off, plug it into the Mouse PS/2 port, and use a USB mouse.
BIOS will reset the I/O address for that PS/2 port, and set it for the Keyboard, when the computer is turned back on.

You may have to;
A) Turn the computer off
B) Unplug from power.

C) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button. Do this same procedure two more times.

What you are doing is draining residual power, clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Keyboard plugged in, USB mouse plugged in, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Motherboard replacement.

You didn't unplug the old Keyboard, WITH the computer on, and plug the new Keyboard in, did you? It isn't a hot-swap device. The computer must be off when unplugging a mouse, or keyboard.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Lost my set up directions...can't connect mouse or keybord...they only have usb ends.


Hi ebdaly...
Most all keyboards and mouse connections now are usb connected.
Just plug the usb from the keyboard or mouse into a usb port on the computer and you should be good to go.
The drivers for the keyboard and mouse are built in to your computer if you have XP/Vista/7,so they are "plug and play" items
If it does not work on your computer then you will have to have an adapter like the one show below for the mouse and keyboard, you can find these at Walmart,Staples,OfficeDepot,this one is from ebay.
Please take time to rate me

Every time I unhook my keyboard to clean the computer the keyboard won't work again and I have to go buy a new one. This has happened 3 times in the last 6 months.


If your keyboard uses a PS2 port which looks like this: (purple is for the keyboard)rambosteven_0.jpg You need to make sure to power off the computer. Then unplug the power cord from the PC to make sure there is no power at all going to the system as this can cause damage to the port or keyboard.
If the keyboard is a standard USB make sure you plug it back into the same port you had unplugged it from.

Mouse and keyboard have no power


If your mouse and keyboard work properly with another computer or laptop the problem could be :
A) if devices are USB :
- defective USB port : chose another USB port;
- USB port inactivated in BIOS : check and activate;
- motherboard defective : replace motherboard.
B) if devices are PS/2 :
- damaged PS/2 ports : buy a PS/2 to USB adapter for your mouse/keyboard or buy USB mouse and keyboard;
- motherboard defective : replace it.

Keyboard not working


Minimal information to go on. Since you didn't specify whether this is a laptop or desktop, I'll respond with the assumption that it's a desktop.

Power off computer.

Install new (known working) keyboard.

If that doesn't correct the problem, your issue is probably with the PS/2 or USB port your keyboard is plugged into.

If you are using a USB keyboard, first try moving it to a different USB port, then booting. If that doesn't help, try a PS/2 keyboard.

If you cannot get a known good (working/new) PS/2 keyboard to work in replacing a PS/2 keyboard, try a USB keyboard.

Keyboard


what is the connection type of your keyboard? is it PS/2 or USB?

well, if your keyboard is a PS/2 type, there might be a problem with the PS/2 keyboard port, because you've said that it works well with your other PC.

if your using a USB type of keyboard, well try to check if your SYSTEM BIOS supports USB Keyboards. because there are some PC doesnt supports USB keyboard on its BIOS. if it supports, well, enable the USB Devices on your BIOS settings to ON.
