Posiflex CD2860 works for short time

I have plugged my Posiflex CD2860 into the keyboard port. My keyboard is using USB. After booting up the PC the Posiflex works (scans & beeps) for a short time then does nothing when button is pressed. I am using Windows XP. Posiflex is set to default.
When I reboot it works again for a short time.

Did a bit more research and it appears that you must have a keyboard attached to the CD2860, even if it is not used.

USB ports fail - no mouse or keyboard on start up on hp pavilion desktop p6000


some older computers don't load usb devices until after windows is booted and in such instances usually a traditional ps2 mouse and keyboard (green and purple plugs respectively) are the best option to enter the bios or boot from cd/dvd

Locating fuses


Usually, if you short a USB port, only that port will be affected. Try booting to safe mode and reinstall the driver.

My keyboard is locked how do i unlock it?


Maybe you keyboard is bad or your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus.

Make sure you keyboard is plugged in good on the back of the computer. If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Round and it plugs into the green port on the back of the computer you have a PS2 (serial) type of keyboard and you cannot unplug it and expect it to work if windows has already booted up. If you remove this type of keyboard connection, you have to Reboot your machine otherwise the keyboard is locked.

If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Flat, then you have a USB type of keyboard that goes into the computer's USB Port. This type of keyboard is Plug and Play so you don't have to reboot if you remove it. If you have this type maybe the USB Port you plugged it into does not work, so try plugging into another USB Port.

Try booting in Safe Mode and see if the keyboard performs.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

Keyboard not found


Is it a ps/2 or a USB keyboard? If its a USB keyboard it may be that the drivers won't load until you actually log into windows. Only fix is to boot with a ps/2 keyboard.

If its a ps/2 keyboard then you are probably plugging it into the mouse port. doublecheck your locations.

Dell Dimension 3100 e10 ...usb won't work


Does the system respond to boot keys (F2, F12) when the DELL logo appears? If so the problem is with Windows drivers and probably can be resolved by reinstalling or rolling back the drivers, but how? Do you have access to another keyboard? Does the system have PS/2 ports? Do you have access to a PS/2 keyboard or adapter? If boot keys work, you could also choose F8 for Last Known Good Config (XP) or System Restore (Vista).

Have you tried different ports (front if using back or visa-versa)?
Try using just keyboard or mouse to see if one has somehow shorted. Also check the ports for any sign of damage.

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.

Keyboard not working


Minimal information to go on. Since you didn't specify whether this is a laptop or desktop, I'll respond with the assumption that it's a desktop.

Power off computer.

Install new (known working) keyboard.

If that doesn't correct the problem, your issue is probably with the PS/2 or USB port your keyboard is plugged into.

If you are using a USB keyboard, first try moving it to a different USB port, then booting. If that doesn't help, try a PS/2 keyboard.

If you cannot get a known good (working/new) PS/2 keyboard to work in replacing a PS/2 keyboard, try a USB keyboard.

Keyboard intermittent


There might be a problem with the keyboards PS2 port. You can bypass the PS2 port all together by buying a PS2 Y-adapter to usb port. This Y adapter will allow you to plug your PS2 mouse & keyboard into it and than you plug the other end into a free usb port. You do not have to plug the PS2 mouse in if you do not want to. Just plug in the keyboard. If your keyboard functions than there is a prolem with the keyboard's PS2 port. The PS2 Y-adapter to USB runs about $12.00 to $15.00. You can find one at Wallmart.
