    Be glad to David. Also may advise you to unplug the Firewire, (1394a) cable from the Front Panel, to the motherboard. Going to need the computer manufacturer name, and model number though. Post in a Comment.

My computer mouse and keyboard not functioning well. I replace the keyboard but only last a month.


Hi jhunix,

I'm going to need even more information; The devices that use PS2 connections, which device is it, and how many of those devices do you have?

One thing that might be a problem, if the issue you see is intermittent, I would check the PS2 connector and see if the pins are bent or broken. PS2 connector pins sometimes will bend or break and this can cause some connection issues if not completely stop the keyboard/mouse from working... Also given the age of your PC the PS2 port may just be bad, but this is not a fatal injury to a computer.

Replacing the Keyboard and Mouse with a standard USB keyboard and mouse, should resolve all of your issues.

PS2 is an older technology that keyboards and mice used to run on; Now however USB connections are used.

Further more, if this an HP Desktop with 2 USB ports on the front, and 4 USB ports on the back, you will want to avoid using the 2 USB ports on the front, especially on older HP and Dell Desktops, the reason is the power supplies often do not have enough power to run multiple USB devices on the front USB ports.

The back ports should be fine regardless of the number of devices.

Hope this helps.

Keyboard stopped working


http://www.ascendtech.us/emachines-kb-0705-ps-2-keyboard-black_i_kbdemkb0705bps2.aspx

Things I see here.
1) The second Keyboard you plugged wasn't any good either.

2) The PS/2 port for your keyboard on your motherboard, isn't any good anymore.
Computer off, plug it into the Mouse PS/2 port, and use a USB mouse.
BIOS will reset the I/O address for that PS/2 port, and set it for the Keyboard, when the computer is turned back on.

You may have to;
A) Turn the computer off
B) Unplug from power.

C) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button. Do this same procedure two more times.

What you are doing is draining residual power, clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Keyboard plugged in, USB mouse plugged in, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Motherboard replacement.

You didn't unplug the old Keyboard, WITH the computer on, and plug the new Keyboard in, did you? It isn't a hot-swap device. The computer must be off when unplugging a mouse, or keyboard.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I tray to changing 3 new keyboards but still reads the problem. What's your problem?


OK what type of keyboard are you using Serial or USB? A serial type keyboard has a round end that plugs into the computer's PURPLE port (the Green Port is for the mouse).

A USB type keyboard has a flat end that plugs into one of the computer's usb ports.

If you are using a Serial (Round end) type keyboard, it is not Plug and Play (meaning you cannot unplug it or plug it in while the computer is running or it will not be recognized). You can only plug or unplug the serial keyboard when the computer is off. If you turn the computer off and plug it in good then reboot and you still have a problem then since you have tried 3 different keyboards, maybe the Purple Serial Port where the keyboard plugs into the computer is bad. Try a USB Type Keyboard.

A USB (Flat end) keyboard is Plug and Play. You can unplug and plug it while the computer is on. Also you have the luxury of plugging it into any one of the computer's usb ports.

At at start up it says keyboard failur


Turn the computer off. Unplug the keyboard then put it back in snuggly. If your keyboard is the Serial type (the end that goes into the computer's Purple Port is Round) then it is not plug and play. By that it means you cannot plug or unplug the keyboard while the computer is on or it will lose connection. If your keyboard is the usb type (flat end goes into one of the computer's usb ports) then it is plug and play and you don't have to have the computer turned off to plug or unplug it.

You can always try another keyboard if the issue is still there.

My mouse broke my usb port in the front of my computer and when I removed it my computer wont recognize my mouse or keyboard anymore but it recognizes my speakers


I had to unplug everything from the motherboard and remove the usb port in the front that was causing the problem, then my operating system started again, I then had to reinsert my supplemental recovery disk and repair my system, then I had to restore to the previous day before the problem started.

It is referring to the USB ports on the back of your computer near where your keyboard plugs in. The front ones must be USB 1.1 which will cause this error.

USB port is plug-and-play, however, PS/2 port is not.
therefore, what you have to do is shunt down the computer and plug in the keyboard, then fire up the computer.
once you unpluged the keyboard. and plug it back again, the computer will not recognize the keyboard is attached, but it knows when the keyboard is disconnected.

Location of USB Root Hub


Hi dottyo,

Generally the front USB ports on a computer are USB version 1.1, good for USB keyboard and mouse or printer.

But, almost always the USB ports on the back of the pc are USB version 2.0 which is what you are looking for. Try any ports on the back of the pc case.

Hope that helps!
