Question about Computers & Internet
It's an MSI MS-7061 board (also known as KM4M-V) ... USB keyboard and mouse work fine. it's not the keyboard/mouse they work perfectly on any other machine (i've tried a few different kb/ms as well)
i've updated the BIOS to the latest. i've even tried turning off USB legacy device emulation for DOS because there are reports of this board not allowing a PS/2 mouse to work if that's enabled.
it's really frustrating because i use a 4-port KVM and whenever i want to use this system i have to move the regular mouse/keyboard away and stick the USB ones up on the desk. and yes, i've tried hooking up kb/ms without a KVM in the middle. makes no difference.
the rear panel USB ports don't work either. before i got this board (it was free) it looked like somebody tried forcing something into one of the USB ports back there backwards, and shorted a couple of the pins. i moved them so they're no longer touching and shorting.
it makes me wonder if it caused some permanent electrical damage to the rear USB and PS/2 ports on this board. i have to use a USB backplane where i'd put a PCI slot and connect it to the motherboard headers to use USB devices.
i'm pretty technically minded, and i've done just about everything i can think of. any clues? think i may be right about the electrical damage? maybe i should just get some PS/2 to USB adapters? i'd rather just use the PS/2 ports if possible.
