Those USB adapters are not very good - most just dont work. Buy a native USB based keyboard and mouse.

I purchased a used HP keyboard mod 5187-7583 but my computer does not recognize it. I'm using Windows 10-64. Do I need to download drivers for this keyboard?


It could be the "adapter", read this The pros and cons of PS 2 to USB adapters and converters

If you really, really like this keyboard you could always install one of these 2 Port USB 2 0 2 Port PS 2 Combo to PCI Adapter Converter Card NEC Chipset

Personally, I don't see the sense this is a old keyboard and HP didn't even release Windows 7 drivers for it, forget about Windows 10. This means that none of the special function keys or media control will work.

LG dvd external drive not recognized by computer


ERROR 43? Check your SATA connection.
HERE'S HOW I FIXED MINE.
(IE. Computer tries to install driver for BD burner, but ultimately fails, and gives the message. "Unsuccessful" and/or "Microsoft Windows stopped device. Error 43") The SATA CONNECTION on my BD burner's EXTERNAL CASE had gone bad.
TO TEST IT. I used a SATA/IDE to USB Adapter Cable I bought for about $10 on amazon.
  • I unscrewed the external case to get at the internal drive, and plugged the SATA adapter cable directly into the internal BD burner drive (bypassing the case assembly), and plugged the other end into my computer USB port.
    • PS My BD burner POWER was working OK, so I left the big white 4pin power adapter connected to the original external case.

VOILA! Both my laptop and my desktop PC recognized the LG BD burner again and assigned it a drive letter (like it used to do).

  • Now I either need to (1) Buy a NEW EXTERNAL case ($10 - $30), (2) install it as an internal drive (could get problematic if "ANYDVD" is installed) or (3) just leave it connected via the cheap adapter cable.
It's super EASY (& inexpensive) to TEST this before spending $$$$ on a new equipment.
Hope this helps someone. It had me miffed for a while there.

I have iogear miniview kvm (gcs62) keyboard works but mouse conn does not. Mluse is usb mouse with ps/2 adapter. Direct connection via usb works. used to also work with adapter but having tried it with kvm...


USB mouse with PS/2 adapter is not guaranteed to wok with GCS62. This KVM switch is designed to work with PS/2 keyboards and mice only.

When the USB mouse with PS/2 adapter is used in a computer directly, it will surely work, because the USB port can give enough power for the mouse to work. And it can easily convert the signal.

Unlike in KVM switch, the switch serves as a bridge between the mouse and the computer. And the computer does not easily recognize the mouse.

I would suggest to use a regular PS/2 mouse. Or if you want to use USB keyboard and mouse, you need to have a USB KVM switch. Model GCS632U.

Thank you and good luck!

Mainboard does not recognize the PS/2 mouse


Sounds like the serial port died. I have seen that happen before. You could try a DB9 to PS/2 adapter or DB9 to USB. The DB9 to PS/2 is cheaper of the 2.

Hope this helps.

It could be a bad Trackman or a bad PS/2 Port.

1st test if it's the port by trying another mouse, or by trying this Trackman in another known working PS/2 port on another computer.  (don't forget to reboot each time you plug in a PS/2 device)

2nd, you can try using a PS/2 to USB adaptor.

These two have great reviews...

Keyboard will not work during post or boot


The problem you are experiencing is caused by a setting in your BIOS. I recommend getting or borrowing a keyboard with a PS/2 port or getting a USB to PS/2 Adapter for Keyboards. Once you do, you can change the setting in the BIOS to accept USB keyboards. If you are already familiar with BIOS then you don't need to read further to enable USB support, other wise I recommend continuing to get familiar with what you are looking for.

When you get a keyboard that uses a PS/2 port, go to the BIOS for your computer. Go to "Advanced" and search for "USB Legacy Support" or something similar in terms of "USB", "keyboard", or "input". Once found, you will have to change the setting to enable USB. If the name of the setting has "USB", then you want it enabled. If it has "keyboard" or "input", then look at the available options for USB and use it unless it has something similar to "dynamic" or "auto-detect" which are better choices.

After finding the right setting and selecting the correct option, go to "Exit" and select "Exit and save changes". Then the BIOS will save and reboot the computer or continue on as if you didn't open up the BIOS.

USB2 high speed not recognize


Try opening up the device manager and unistall everything in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Then reboot and let windows reinstall the USB controllers. Windows should now be able to recognize properly USB2 devices.

USB mouse not recognized


I have similar problem. 2 inland KVM's (both have PS2 inputs, one has USB outputs) do not light or recognize my usb mouse with a PS2 adapter. They do recognize a PS2 ball mouse on the KVM's however. One of the computers (Sony vaio 1.5 GHz) does recognize a usb mouse with adapter on 2 other KVM's (Old Belkin and a Trendnet) (the second computer I have not tried in those configurations). Next I will try an optical mouse with a PS2 fitting. That did work with a fifth KVM at an auto business last week.

Windows displays a message saying that the device is not recognized


Ok, there is no longer support for these adapters, and there are plenty of problems with getting them going and keeping them going. I would get a refund if they are new, if not don't waste any more time with them and buy a more user recognised product.
