Question about Tekram K7KX A Motherboard
I powered off my system to swap hard drives.
When I restarted the system BIOS and the OS on the swapped drive had compatibility issues. My next step was to power down again, remove the battery and clear CMOS.
After reinstalling the battery and placing the CMOS jumper back to 'normal' when I powered up again the system would not detect my PS2 keyboard. DEL and F1 had no effect. Swapped out keyboard - no help.
Final solution: Get a USB-to-PS/2 Adapter. This allows the PS/2 keyboard and mouse to connect through a USB port. Belkin Part # F5U119vE1
The only thing I can suggest in this scenario, is to go through your BIOS again, and check for options to enable/disable your PS2 ports, and that's the best-case outcome.
worst case outcome is that when you were swapping your hard drives, an improper circuit was made, and static (ESD) killed a component on your motherboard. Did you use a grounding strap, or ground yourself when you had the case open? another thing to check for, is if the wires connecting the ports are whole, and not bent or loose.
if this doesn't help, i'd definatly go with the USB adapter, to see if that works. if not, there is a possibility you might have to buy a new motherboard, in itself.
