    Hi,

    I'm connecting my old emachine desktop keyboard to my gateway laptop via a usb-ps/2 adapter. The mouse works but the keyboard doesn't. Both are connected via the same adapter (it has one usb connector and 2 ps2 connectors).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    One would need more information to figure out what to do. What kind of laptop, is it a USB keyboard and mouse? Tell us about the circumstances. Almost none of the problems posted a common, until the details reveal that they are!

Acer 5570z keyboard is locked..Mouse works fine. Tried it in safe mode..keyboard still wont work..but mouse will...Even reloaded the operating system and keyboard still doesnt work..


Hook an external keyboard to the laptop, if okay! replace the laptop keyboard. If no change check bios setting to make sure the laptop is not disabled, and reset bios to factory default.

Hello, i currently use a IBM desktop with IBM keyboard and mouse but i just bought a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse which i just installed into my desktop using the installation CD. They are both...


Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

KEYS AND MOUSE


Check to make sure your touch pad is not turned off. Regarding the keyboard you need to check to see if you have set the laptop to work off an external keyboard. Check the function keys at the top of the keyboard they are used to turn on and off the keyboard and mouse functions

Mouse/keyboard problems


Hi,

Probably, the keyboard cable isn't quite connected, or crooked. Likewise, the mouse cable. It's hard to get them into the connector perfectly straight and tighten them at the same time. Shouldn't be a problem. If it still doesn't work, there's a chance that by disconnecting the keyboard/mouse after such a long time, the cable might have become damaged. Hope not tho.

Good luck
