My computer mouse and keyboard not functioning well. I replace the keyboard but only last a month.

Hi jhunix,

I'm going to need even more information; The devices that use PS2 connections, which device is it, and how many of those devices do you have?

One thing that might be a problem, if the issue you see is intermittent, I would check the PS2 connector and see if the pins are bent or broken. PS2 connector pins sometimes will bend or break and this can cause some connection issues if not completely stop the keyboard/mouse from working... Also given the age of your PC the PS2 port may just be bad, but this is not a fatal injury to a computer.

Replacing the Keyboard and Mouse with a standard USB keyboard and mouse, should resolve all of your issues.

PS2 is an older technology that keyboards and mice used to run on; Now however USB connections are used.

Further more, if this an HP Desktop with 2 USB ports on the front, and 4 USB ports on the back, you will want to avoid using the 2 USB ports on the front, especially on older HP and Dell Desktops, the reason is the power supplies often do not have enough power to run multiple USB devices on the front USB ports.

The back ports should be fine regardless of the number of devices.

Hope this helps.

A blue display box continually pops up with Input Select D sub DVI. I am thinking it is something to do with the monitor. What is wrong?

This monitor has two types of video inputs, a 15 pin VGA D-sub connector and a DVI connector.
If the video card has a 15 pin D-Sub then connect the video cable to the 15 pin D-Sub connector on the monitor.
If the video connectors are DVI then connect the video card and monitor with a DVI video cable.
You will also need to configure the monitor for either the D-Sub or DVI video input.

I have an older JBL TLX PS10 sub woofer but hardly used. I get a green light when plugged in. However, the speak makes a loud continuous noise when I plug in the Y connector to the low level input. It...

Just touch your fingertip to the input connector on the sub -- similar noise? That would be its amp picking up the hum of the room through your antenna-like body. IF that is the same noise, you need to make sure your input cable is shielded and connected at both ends BEFORE applying power to the electronics at either end.

Be mindful of electronic noise sources such as track lighting, UV lights, motors, TV's, etc, and route the signal and power cables well away from them.

Try reversing the orientation of the AC plug at the sub and see if that helps out.

If it used to light up and now doesn't, it's probably gone bad. You did the correct thing in testing it on another computer.
If it has a little "connect" button on it, push that button.
Also push the "connect" buttons on the mouse and keyboard.
See if that helps.

Is this sub a Bose. The only reason you would see a VGA type connector on a sub is if it is dedicated to somthing else such as Bose 3-2-1 system. This is not a standard VGA input and can only be connected the the dedicated head unit. I need more info on the sub. Brand and model. Ther should be an analog audio input on the sub. This will be sufficient.

No Sound from Jamo E6 Sub

More likely there is a bad solder connection or a bad connector contact inside the unit, could also be a blown or dried up electrolytic capacitor.

Check the line signal input plugs, if they are soldered directly to the board then check the solder around the pins - if it has circular cracks, you need to resolder the pins.

Also check any other components on the board for such cracks on the pins, including internal connectors, disconnect, clean the pins if necessary and reconnect them.

If any electrolytic capacitors have a bulged top, they are blown and need to be replaced.

It could as well be something else, but your description suggests either a fault at the input connectors or some trouble with the input signal level sensing circuitry (no signal to the sensing circuit may be caused by connectors, no response from the sensing circuit may be caused by bad capacitors or other faulty components in or around that section).

Hope you can find out what it is and fix it...

Keyboard wont work

ok I don't really have enough info on this question but im pretty confident i can help you.
it sounds like your brother has a desktop computer and its a bit older. so since he does not have usb ports on it it has a pin connector called ps2 its located next to the mouse connector.
all you have to do is go to a store that carries OLDER keyboards maybe even a used keyboard just plug it up (while pc is off) and that should resolve your issue :)
