Re: power to ps2 mouse /keyboard
Get the Connector for KB & MOU replaced . If you have the practical experience in desoldering and soldering you could buy a new connector and replace it . Very few motherboards have a fuse fro powering up the KB and MOU , if your's has it check that first.

Try connecting one at a time, if you connect the mouse don't connect the keyboard, and if you connect the keyboard, don't connect the mouse, reboot each time and check which one is the culprit. One of the port or device must be creating the problem. Good luck.
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.
Assuming you have checked in setup that the PS2 is turned on the other option is to re-flash the bios .
At some time someone switched the mouse and keyboard and started up the computer this can cause you to need to re-flash the bios most likely the keyboard chip needs to be replaced sorry to bring bad news .
Dell seems to have this problem yet the USB works is good where most modern keyboards and mouse are USB.
Purple is Keyboard if not color coded the closest to the outer side of case is the keyboard.
Good luck hope this helps you
PS. You may try setting the jumper pins to default the main board back to factory defaults then remove the jumper pin and leave off for first boot .When doing this be aware not to have the power cables connected to the server remove all power cords and the monitor . Prior to doing the first power up plug in the PS2 keyboard only then the monitor. Cross you fingers If you lucky your PS2 port’s will be working again if so shut down re install the jumper pin install the PS2 mouse.
ok ...if you have a blocked situation ..and can not boot to make any analytic observations...I recomand reinstalling ...but this must be done in your computer cause there are no same devices in 2 computers and it will not boot the way you said ....But....,you can try to take your HDD place in another computer ....and format it clean ...deleting all it has on it ...after that ...if any viruses or data on it was bloking the function ...now it must work .... buy the way ...imagine that you have a new one ...and on the hdd have nothing at all ...so even no drivers for mouse and keyboard..... its brand new.....you can still get into bios....the commands from the key board must work .....it will not see the mouse until the files for installing windows aren't loaded...but the bios can be accesed with no hdd on...maybe you fried something into it .....I can not tell you for sure ..even if this is my trade.....Im a few tousen miles away and can't project exactly in my mind...try to remove the bios battery ....for a few seconds this will restore the factory defaults ...and when you boot will ask to get into settings(bios) almost obligated...t set the time ...and date ....so then you can take a look to the boot device order and save to boot from the disk first.... Keep me informed ,,maybe I get ideas if I know what it is behaving like .... have a good day !
Here is Some Hints to solve your problem.
1.Check the Bios your PS2 ports are enabled,if disabled enable it.
2.Go to the device manager see your PS2 keyboard Driver enabled or not.If disabled enable it.
4.Finally Check your computer with new keyboard.
if all these are correct... you still have a problem
Deffinately there may be a problem with PS2 port of your computer motherboard,Then only one option is remaining, you can use USB to PS2 Converter Cable,Or a USB Keyboard.
If you have any other query post a comment with more information regarding the problem.I will try to assist you more accurately
Hi, Check in your Bios if Usb keyboard and Mouse Support is enabled, otherwise you can use a Ps2 Keyboard just to get to the desktop, then you should be able to install your keyboard and mouse, yor pc should automatically detect the devices
Try and kill the bios. Find the jumper next to the battery on the motherboard and move it from position 1-2 to 2-3 ... press the power button a few times. then put the jumper back to normal and give it a shot.
I would disconnect the cables first before anything and attempt to boot the system.. if it boots, then start plugging hte cables one after another until you find out what's causing the machine not starting correctly.
Did you go into the BIOS and set it to recognize the USB Keyboard after you reset the BIOS? Is windows not noticing it or the BIOS. You stated that it recognized the USB keyboard and then said that it did not. What does all of this mean? USB keyboard does not activate "del" setup.
If it does not work, it is because you reset the BIOS and did not change the settings back for the USB keyboard.
