Question about HP Keyboard/Mouse

Keyboard very slow on ps/2, normal on USB connection

Hi,

My keyboard reacts very slow when I use the ps/2 connection. When I use an USB connection (with a HP converter) it works normally.

It's not the keyboard itself, because when I replace the keyboard the problem still exists.

Any solutions? Thanks in advance!

Peter.

    Hi Domnickr,

    Thank you for your reply.

    What is "perfecther" and where can I find it? I had no luck with Google.

    Thank you for the update.

    You made a typo: "perfecther" must be "prefetcher". That's why I couldn't find it! ;-)

    I don't have a "C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\" folder (and "C:\WINDOWS\" is the XP folder). But I ran the program anyway (I think that's what you mean with "merge it").

    The "Disable Windows Prefetch" option is seleted. After a reboot there were no results. The keyboard is still very slow on the ps/2 connection.

    What is a 'slot'? I can't change the connector, because there is only one ps/2 connector.

    Peter.

There are 4 possible ways in my awareness...
Method 1: Resynchronize your device with the receiver To resynchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, follow these steps. Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put any other wireless keyboards and mouse at least 6 feet away.
  1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink.

    Note Some newer Microsoft devices are permanently bound to their receiver and cannot be reset. If your device does not have a button, skip to Method 2.
  2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to the next step.
  3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse or the keyboard.
  4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.
  5. For the Wireless Notebook mouse: This issue can occur if the micro-switch on the bottom of the mouse is not released. Use a pin or a pen to try to release the button if it is depressed.
The following example shows the buttons to push to synchronize a wireless hardware device:

USB keyboard and USB mouseIf the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer. PS/2 devices Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device into the PS/2 port while the computer is running.If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations:
  • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer. The mouse PS/2 port on the computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that was included with the computer.
  • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that was included with the computer.
If you have to change your configuration, shut down the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. If your mouse or keyboard has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other connection. PS/2 keyboard and USB mouseIf you are using a wireless mouse with a USB connector and a PS/2 keyboard, verify that the USB mouse is plugged in a USB port on the computer and that the purple keyboard PS/2 plug is connected to the purple PS/2 port on the computer. If you have to change the PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Method 3: Reinsert the batteries or install fresh batteriesBoth the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse rely on AA alkaline batteries for power. Remove the batteries, and then insert them again. If the problem persists, install a fresh set of batteries in the device that you are having problems with. Method 4: Check for interferenceItems such as wireless routers, radios, cell phones, desktop fans, fluorescent lights, and large metal objects like computer cases and metal furniture may interfere with the signal of the keyboard. Try to keep such items away from the keyboard, and check the behavior of the keyboard.

Do not put the mouse or the receiver near any electrical devices, especially transmitters such as cordless or cellular telephones or other wireless mouse devices or receivers. A distance of at least 8 to 12 inches is recommended. Do not put the mouse or the receiver on metallic surfaces or objects, especially long metallic rails or cables. We recommend that you keep the mouse and the keyboard a minimum of 3 feet from metallic objects.

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.

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.

Usb issue


Do you have a ps/2 keyboard/mouse? Or a usb->ps/2 adapter. I'd say boot up normally and log in with the ps/2 keyboard/mouse. Then, from device manager, right click everything under USB and such and uninstall. Then right-click your computer name in the device tree and scan for changes.

To clean the lens of an optical or laser mouse, follow these steps: 1. Use a dry cloth to clean the bottom surface of the mouse. 2. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 3. If you see dust on the bottom of the mouse, use a can of pressurized de-ionized air to blow away the dust on the lens. 4. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 5. If the pressurized air canister is not available, blow dry air on the lenses by using your mouth one or two times. 6. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 7. If these steps do not resolve the problem, use a cotton bud to clean the lens without scratching it.

Faulty sp/2 connection


Hi,

Most issues of this nature may be resolved by enabling the USB Keyboard Legacy Support and/or all instances of USB in the CMOS/BIOS settings of your motherboard.  Some older models do not have this feature and therefore would really require a PS/2 KB interface.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.

A USB mouse will work but the PS/2 mouse failed. What causes it?


Hi melch, On the PS/2 mouse, chances are that the surface mounted fusible link/resistor supplying the +5VDC is open. It is normally very near the PS/2 port and marked [0] or labeled F???. This can be verified by measuring the absence/presence of +5 at pin 4 of the connector. In some cases, it is the I/O chip that gets damaged. Re "only two(2)USB port" aside from the 2 rear USB ports, the Asus CUV4X-C has another pair of USB connectors that are normally connected to the front panel of the casing. It is located very near the motherboard battery. Re "...prompting...high speed USB port...", normally by updating your OS (say XP to SP2) or downloading/installing latest VIA 4 in 1 Drivers should make your USB 2.0 compatible. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
