    Have two PS/2 Gateway Keyboards 7002737 & 7001211 (people seem to throw them out even though they are solid in construction)

    Both will NOT work on my Toshiba Laptop with a single USB adapter ...

    but for some reason unknown they will function with a Multi PS/2 adapter for mouse & keyboard .... the 7001211 keyboard multikeys will work with the 98 drivers downloaded from Gateway on Vista .. the 7002737 multikeys will not even load ... Gateway seems to make some odd duck keyboards

Keyboard Not Working


Keyboard could need replacing. Try connecting a USB external keyboard and see if it works. If it works okay, you need to have the laptop keyboard connections checked. Replace the keyboard if connections appear to be okay.

Laptop keyboard not typing letters


Even a Panasonic Toughbook can have a defective keyboard.

Try to connect an external PS/2 or USB keyboard.

Make sure the laptop is powered off before connecting a PS/2 keyboard. The USB keyboard can be plugged in at any time.

If the external keyboard works, the cost of a used external keyboard should not exceed $5 bucks.

Once in a blue moon the internal keyboard may be "disconnected" either by accident or maybe on purpose. If this is the case, then reconnecting the keyboard may solve the problem.

Good Luck and Best regards from:

The connection on the rear of the hub should go to a USB connection on the laptop, not a PS/2 connection. A PS/2 to USB adapter is used to connect a PS/2 keyboard or mouse to a USB connection.

My laptop is dell inspiron 1501 but no work keybord and battery charging but supply line(AC adaptor) is ok.


Hello there. The Inspiron 1510 was released almost 5 years ago. If your system is more than 2 years old, then perhaps you will have to replace the battery. Battery for the most part, will only last 1 to 2 years. As for the battery, try connecting an external USB keyboard. If its working, then you need to replace the laptop's keyboard. Hope this will help.

My dell sk8110 keyboard has a round purple connector plug that fit my old computer. My new computer has only USB ports. How can I connect my keyboard to the new computer?


http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.phtml?keyword=usb+adapter+ps%2F2&category=
The round purple connector is refered to as "PS/2" type connector. You can find an adapter that converts PS/2 to USB connector. The above link was just to show what I was refering to. Hope this helps.

Belkin wireless keyboard receiver won't work with my laptop


Yes and no...
"Wireless enabled" means you do not need a separate adapter to connect to a wireless NETWORK or computer, not a peripheral device.

I assume the two connectors are PS/2- plugs - one pink, the other one green. What you need is a PS/2- -to-USB adapter that should have come with your keyboard. PS/2-in, USB-out, either with or without the cables (see picture)

Keyboard to Laptop connectors


go to Amazon.com, and look up ps/2 (which is the official name for the connector type normal keyboards have) to usb adapter, and you should find a little green thing that adapts your keyboard to usb. Make sure that the usb is a male end, and the ps/2 is a female end, or you've got the wrong one.
However, before you do that, I want to let you know that I just did the same thing, and I cannot get my Gateway keyboard to work on my HP laptop through usb. I have no idea why, and I am currently trying to find a solution. So I wouldn't suggest buying it until you know how to fix it. If you figure it out let me know.
